Meet the MegaBronc, a Ford Bronco/F-250 Mash-Up That Seats Seven

North Carolina's MegaRexx turned the Ford Bronco into an F250-based seven-passenger convertible called the MegaBronc, and these behemoths are being snapped up as fast as they can make them.
The MegaBronc is based on a Ford F-250 diesel truck with many Bronco parts added.
The truck bed is now six inches shorter, but the vehicle itself is eight inches wider. These tires are 40 inches. The price is also much bigger.
From 1978 to 1996, the Ford Bronco was basically a regular cab pickup truck with a bench seat in the truck bed and a removable canopy over the rear seat and truck bed. One company, Centurion Vehicles, said "But what if it was a four-door?" and grafted the tail ends of Broncos onto F-Series crew-cab trucks to create the three-row Centurion Classic. With that in mind of the Brobdingnagian Broncos, MegaRexx of Wilmington, North Carolina decided to create their own full-size, three-row bronco: the MegaBronc. And for $224,950, Megarexx will build one for you too.

This MegaBronc started out as a diesel powered 2021 Ford F-250 4x4 before undergoing extensive broncosmetic surgery. Its headlights and grille are genuine Bronco parts (in fact, it took two grilles to span the Super Duty width), while the front fenders and hood are custom fiberglass parts reminiscent of the Bronco's plate-side lines. The rear fenders get similar treatment, and while the new fairings make the F-250 eight inches wider than stock, it doesn't look like it. The bed is shortened by six inches to give it a much tidier overhang, and a slight lift accommodates 40-inch tires. Broncoing is most effective at the front end - in profile, from the rear of the cab, a capped Super Duty is easy to spot on the truck bed.

Until that cap comes off and reveals: Sit! Just like a Centurion Classic or a Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet, the rearmost passengers of the MegaBronc can go outside. To construct this feat, Megarexx removed the rear wall of the F-250's cabin, welded the bed to the cabin, and installed second-row captain's chairs and third-row seats from an Expedition. A steel roller structure flanks the third row seats and provides a mounting location for the shoulder belts and LED lighting. Legroom is extravagant, and there's still considerable cargo space behind the third row. This truck was built from the short wheelbase (159.8 inch) Super Duty Crew Cab, so a 176 inch long wheelbase truck would have room for Tacko Fall in the third row. At least with the roof open.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the MegaBronc drives like a lifted F-250 diesel. The axles have 4.56:1 gears to compensate for the big tires and the speedo is corrected so it really does feel like a bigger Super Duty until you look in the rearview mirror and see three rows of seats. The stock powertrain (475 horsepower and 1050 pound-feet of torque) also retains its factory warranty. Towing isn't a Bronco forte, but the MegaBronc can tow 15,000 pounds with a conventional trailer — which, come to think of it, is probably the only type of trailer it would tow, since a gooseneck would attach right where the third would seated in a row.
Whether all of this justifies a six-figure premium over an F-250 PowerStroke depends heavily on whether you plan to take the top off and bring six friends to the beach, because - unlike the Centurion Classic days - Ford already provides one perfectly good three-row full-size SUV. But the Expedition isn't a convertible and the Bronco isn't a seven-seater, so Megarexx may have carved a niche here.
