I am pleased to announce that yet another 2 door Bronco (Badlands, V-6) has hit the road in SE Michigan! Picked up my Cyber Orange beauty yesterday and love it. Can't explain how I got my 2dr- with a perfect MIC roof- relatively so early in the rollout (my order was confirmed 1/28/21), but good luck to everyone still waiting. The torturous journey to delivery day is soon forgotten once they hand you the keys! See everyone at Holly Oaks, Silver Lake, and Drummond Island soon!- "Pumpkinhead"
Replaced the rock sliders with the Ford running boards that I got using some of the FordPass Rewards points they gave me. Honestly don't know why they didn't just use the same mounting system for them that the rock sliders use, would have made much more sense since they mount in the same locations.
Regardless, they're fairly easy to swap so I can always put the sliders back on IF I ever decide to do any serious off-roading with her.
It's strange, I can't post videos in the Club. I was going to show a couple of pics and videos from this weekend. Maybe the link will work. When are we going to do a Bronco meetup now that we have some to meet up with?
For those of you who have your Broncos or are about to purchase, did you dealer put your $100 reservation fee toward the sale of the Bronco? I just thought about this and mine did not, so I am missing the $100.
Best. Monday. Ever. After a 07/13/2020 reservation at 8:08pm, she's finally in my driveway. The weather was perfect yesterday and the top came right off as soon as we got home. I really freaking love this thing and it has been a blast for all 50 miles that I've driven it so far. I know it's easy to say for the guy that got a delivery, but hang in there! It's worth it.
I can't say enough good about my dealer, Varsity Ford. There were absolutely no surprises and they stuck to no ADM. I was nervous as hell heading in since even FEs are starting to be canceled. They gave me some nice insulated Bronco coffee mugs as swag and I'm more than happy with that considering that at this dealership 3 FEs got outright canceled. I got lucky.
Saddle up for a fun ride! OBX, anti-matter blue, this color sparkles and shines! Fall is the perfect time to flip the top back and let the sunshine in. My Grandgirls giggled and smiled the second they jumped in, pure joy!!
Who would be interested in coming over to the west side and doing a color run in 2 weeks if I organize it? Mix of roads and trails (should be stock friendly, I will pre run next weekend if I get enough interest). I posted it overon Ranger5g as well.
Told y’all I’m still more than happy to wheel with ya, even if I am changing sides
So, now that more of us seem to be taking delivery, where/when do we want to have a meetup? Would we want to have a minimum number of groupies that are willing to meet up (regardless of whether they've taken delivery or not) before setting up something?
For the 1st one, I'd recommend somewhere centrally-located, like Lansing, for the 1st one since we seem to have a fair mix of east/west siders and a handful of northerners. Just an idea, open to suggestions (both for city and venue)/vetoes.
I am officially bowing out. Couldn’t wait through the winter for my build, local dealer found this for me. Should be bringing it home Wednesday. When you guys are ready to hit some trails, drop me a line. I’ll still wheel with y’all!
Just found this club. Reserved 7/14, built 9/3 in the early morning and took delivery 9/3 in the afternoon. BL SAS LUX 2.7 Tow. I have only put roughly 400 miles on it but I will say it's worth the wait!!!
