Feast Your Eyes On The BDS Project Fire Command Bronco

Scroll this

Ready at a moment’s notice, BDS Suspension’s Project Fire Command is a Fire/Rescue-themed Bronco designed to lead the charge for missions off the beaten path. It’s designed to rush the fire chief or rescue lead ahead of heavier equipment to assess each situation and build a tactical plan of attack for the team. Project Fire Command is a one-of-a-kind pickup that recalls the “half cab” early Broncos used by many rural fire departments decades ago.

Equipped with the right gear, Project Fire Command gets the job done thanks to suspension upgrades with oversized wheels and tires, dual winches, state-of-the-art comms, emergency lighting, first aid, tools and more.

Finishing off the unique half-top conversion is a bottom-hinged drop tailgate that replaces the stock side-hinged design. The BDS team took a factory-fresh Black Diamond edition Bronco, immediately disassembled it, then cut up the roof and re-engineered the roll cage structure. The Bronco’s unique configuration showcases BDS engineering’s advanced vehicle development capabilities, with Ford playing an integral hand in the overall design. The entire project team is exceedingly proud of the outcome.
