nice build, but I would take a velocity over them all day.


I am not crazy about Maxlider as a company, all they do is flip them and add tons of cash to it.

I was seriously going to buy one from them 2 years ago, was talking and gave them a offer on one. they declined it and it was more than what they advertised. sold it right under me, then tried to sell me one that was no where as nice for more money.

2 years later they got the same bronco back and added 10k to price tag and nothing was done to it, I know this because the owner told me privately.

Looks nicely built, bummer to see so many pics under construction where it was uncut, and then it looks like it was cut in the 11th hour. Will hopefully find it next week at SEMA

From the 4doors Iíve seen this one looks best to me. Now with the man hours and parts I donít think there could be much if any profit at 200k. Iíd like to have it.

I agree it looks that way to me too. When they ordered the Duff bumpers they said it was 3". Maybe its a 1" integrated with a 2" billet stacked on top of it?

Ill be able to put a tape measure on it next week and confirm

A work of art either way! Its a beauty and sporting the "JD" logos on the bumpers nicely! The body mount distance looks like more than the height of the frame which would be about 4".

I wouldn't mind that supercharged coyote engine. I follow these guys on instagram and they do build some premium broncos at a premium price but I'm sure having that many skilled workers costs a premium too. Hopefully they are sharing those profits across the board with everyone in the organization.

I follow them on Instagram also, and am glad they cut it. That tire/wheel combo did not look right with uncut fenders (to my eye.)
If I had one critique, it would be the way the back of the roll cage tapers down to the rear corner. I think it would look better as a full family-style cage.

Beautiful! They did some amazing work there!

But I wonder about that rear suspension?? Those links would have to swing on the same arc to avoid binding, and maybe they do. But it appears they don't??

And all that custom work and they didn't clock the Atlas flat?? For a long rig like that, a flat belly would be critical. But a rig this expensive won't likely see any trail use, which then begs the question...why an Atlas??

At least the KE one has windows and a top. I can certainly appreciate all the work that when into the Maxlider Bronco and its truly a work of art but other then a sunny day cruiser I just dont see the value. Also seems like most of those cages will do more harm then good in a lot of accidents as its right where someones head will slam into it in alot of situations and I doubt anyone will cruise around with a helmet on.

Have 1970 Bronco and a 1996 Explorer 5.0 just waiting to donate its engine!

Beautiful fair weather Bronco. Much easier to build without windows or top. I've got nearly 7k miles on mine since completion- sunshine, rain, snow- doesn't matter. Air conditioned at the summer rod runs in Pigeon Forge. Can only hope this will increase it's value!
