1991 Ford Bronco ‘Operation Fearless’ Pays Tribute To Hero Navy Seal

Navy Seal, Adam Brown was a son, a husband, a father to two children, a hero and probably so much more. In 2010, Brown was a Navy SEAL Chief fighting in Afghanistan when his team was attacked. During the attack, Adam lost his life, but his courageous actions saved many of other members of SEAL Team Six. For this, he was awarded the Silver Star Medal for Heroism. Brown’s tale is remarkable story of selflessness in the face of danger.

Now, you might be wondering what a 1991 Ford Bronco has to do with Adam Brown and his story. Well, to honor Brown’s life and heroism,  the ‘Operation Fearless’ project came about as an opportunity to rebuild/restore Adam’s first car, a 1991 Ford Bronco. The Bronco rebuild is not only a tribute to Adam, but it is also a gift for his 2 kids, Nathan and Savannah.

Initially, the project was just to restore the Bronco to its original condition – but RK Performance saw fit to do Brown’s memory proper justice by building the hulking beast you see before you today. The build included dropping in a 400-horsepower 5.0-liter Coyote engine, swapping in a Transzilla F56 6-speed manual transmission, new front and rear axles, Rigid LED lighting, a WARN winch – and that’s just the outside. In the cabin, they beefed this Bronco up with a custom one-off cockpit-inspired dash, a full roll cage, and racing seats. They even gave the suspension a complete overhaul, adding a BDS-supplied 4” Extended Radius Arm Suspension Lift Kit with dual 5500-series shocks and rear leaf springs. If there is a vehicle more fitting as a tribute to a fallen Navy SEAL, American hero, and father, we’ve yet to come across it.
