yakima and thule both charge monopoly-style prices (do they constitute a biopoly?), I myself have been using pressure-treated 2x4's for 5 years now-- they're starting to warp a little, but I can always unbolt and swap 'em out. As for bike mounts, they cost about $14 and screw right into the wood, plus if you have any 2x4s running with the long axis of the car, you can drill a hole through one, put a spoke through it, and many front forks fit fine like that and it'll only cost 1/2 of what a full mount does for the spoke and the very long drill bit.
I drive a suby and my wood racks do an over/under with the factory racks which serve to stabilize the wood which sits on the rails that are built into the roof, so I'm not sure how to reccomend fitting the bronco, but I give props to anyone who does it their own way.
