The dream has become a reality for those who've wished to see a Ford Ranger with a touch of Bronco ruggedness. Thailand's TTN Hypersport pushes the boundaries of aftermarket vehicle design, proving that OEM modifications can be far from dismal.
They've given the mid-sized Ranger a striking makeover by fitting it with a Bronco front end, available for both the standard and Raptor models.
TTN Hypersport didn't stop at just the headlights and grille; they reworked the hood and front fenders to ensure a seamless integration. The result is the ultimate fantasy for many—a Bronco pickup, featuring flared fenders, off-road tires, and a bold front bumper.
The modification kit, starting at $4,200 for the 2015 Ranger model, boasts a straightforward installation process without the need for cutting. The original lighting system is adapted to fit the new Bronco headlights, and customers can opt for custom wheels at an additional cost.
TTN Automotive is also extending its creativity to the Everest, an SUV based on the Ranger, by introducing a Bronco-style front end. Although not available in the U.S., the Everest prototype sporting these modifications is said to look quite impressive, especially with added off-road accessories that amplify its toughness.
Meanwhile, in the United States, a Japanese company, FLEX Automotive, has crafted a retro-inspired front fascia for the third-generation Tacoma. This design throws back to the classic aesthetics of the Land Cruiser or the 70s' Hilux, demonstrating the versatility and appeal of mixing eras in vehicle design.
