The Ford Bronco offers praiseworthy capability and character in equal measure. Its rugged design looks cool without trying too hard.
A stout Dana 44 front axle replaced the weaker Dana 30 in 1971 models. Other upgrades included the Ranger trim package, argent grille, pleated parchment interior and aluminum door panel trim.
Unlike the cheap tire covers you find at your local auto parts store this cover is hand made locally in Orlando Florida by a small business. The fabric is thick automotive vinyl that’s water proof, dust proof and offers nearly 100% UV protection, so it won’t rot or dry rot under direct sunlight like leather. It’s stitched using durable marine-grade thread and the exposed edges are cleanly finished with professional upholstery welt (piping) to ensure your spare tire cover will last a long time.
Each tire cover is custom fitted for your specific tire size. This way it will stay snug and secure (no sloppy fit like those one-size-fits-all covers). We use high-resolution imaging that’s printed directly onto the vinyl using industry leading Epson large-format printers. The ink is embedded into the vinyl instead of sitting on top of it which makes the print extremely scratch resistant and it’s backed by a lifetime warranty against fading.
To keep your spare tire cover safe from thieves Four Wheel Covers also offers a security kit that includes a quality, corrosion-free Master lock and special grommets to mount the lock on the inside of your tire cover. It’s easy to add the security kit when you order your tire cover and it’s a great way to protect your investment. A backup camera cutout is included with most designs and is bound with the vinyl to prevent unraveling.
The bead-welded seam used in our tire covers provides strength and a classic look that matches your vehicle’s factory trim. This style of seam is also water proof. The cover uses a high-quality Master lock to protect your spare tire from thieves and keep it looking amazing for years to come.
Our welting is made in the USA and has been carefully chosen to match your Ford Bronco’s color scheme. The welt is hand-woven and welded together to create a strong, long lasting seam. The welt is also available in different widths to accommodate a variety of wheel sizes.
This collection features a selection of patriotic bald eagle designs to show off your American pride. The bald eagle is the symbol of freedom, so what better way to display your patriotism than on your Ford Bronco’s spare tire cover?
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to beaded mock welting, especially adapted for use with footwear of the McKay type and designed so that normal pressure in a shoe will automatically force the inturned upper surface of the bead portion against the upper of the finished shoe. The bead portion comprises a tapered stitch-receiving body portion and a seam-filling bead portion formed substantially at right angles to said body portion. The convex exterior and concave interior surfaces of the bead portion are subm stantially parallel throughout the medial portion of their respective arcs, the lower end of said convex surface merging slightly below the bottom of said body portion to form an inturned ridge to provide a lower pressure-leverage rib.
Our Ford Bronco hard tire cover comes with a quality master lock that will prevent your spare from being stolen. When you use this lock, the only way to open your tire cover is by using the key. This will help protect your spare from thieves and give it a finished look. The master lock is included with every tire cover we sell. You can also purchase the lock separately to keep your spare and cover secure.
Ford introduced the Early Bronco in August of 1965 to compete with Jeep’s CJ-5 and International Harvester’s Scout in the burgeoning recreational four wheel drive vehicle market. Early models were spartan without options such as power steering or an automatic transmission. They were powered by a 105 hp 170 cid inline six cylinder engine with a three speed manual transmission.
By 1967, production had jumped to 26,100 vehicles. The optional Sport Package was added to the lineup and included a bright finished horn ring, windshield drip, head and tail light bezels, instrument panel trim and door handle, cigar lighter, chrome grille and bumpers, and red die cast F-O-R-D letters appliqued to the grille. A dual master cylinder and self-adjusting brakes were standard equipment and back up lights were available. A rear axle upgrade to a heavier duty Ford 9 inch was offered and the auxiliary fuel tank increased its capacity to 11.5 gallons.
Interactive Design Studio
Few vehicles have been more eagerly awaited by consumers in recent years than the Ford Bronco. The sixth-generation version of this iconic SUV is finally here, and it’s just as rugged as we expected. This new Bronco is based on the same platform as the Ranger, but it’s designed and engineered completely in the United States at the same Wayne Michigan plant where the original was built.
Like the original, this new model has a side-hinged tailgate that swings open to the right-hand side. While it looks cool and adds to the vehicle’s rugged look, there are several drawbacks to this design. For one, the tailgate is hard to open if another vehicle is directly behind it. Plus, it’s not as easy to load curbside as the upward-lifting tailgate found on most modern SUVs.
The new Bronco also uses a five-speed manual transmission. This offers a gear ratio spread of up to 11. This is significantly more than the 7.1-gear range offered by the six-speed automatic transmission found in Jeep Wranglers.
The new Ford Bronco comes standard with forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection. Blind spot warning, rear cross traffic warning, and lane departure warning are optional.
