  1. 2.7L Oil Change Tips + Replacement Drain Plugs

    It locks with the spring wave. The spring wave makes it more solid in my opinion than the factory plug which just quarter turns and has no tension.
  2. 2.7L Oil Change Tips + Replacement Drain Plugs

    I can’t remember the internal diameter I used but it is listed on their site. I did zip tie it on and it makes it easier to put on and to stop the flow when just trying to drain a small amount.
  3. A Few Things After Driving Around With the Top and Doors Off.

    I learned the hard way about why they include the rubber pieces to put on the lip of the doors for removal/install. I now know EXACTLY where to put them since I am missing paint.
  4. 2.7L Oil Change Tips + Replacement Drain Plugs

    I have 5 k on my engine and installed the ronin valve at 1k. My first change with the ronin at 4K was so easy on my 2.7 badlands. I did not have to pull the skid plate or lift the vehicle. I am able to get the tool that threads in to open the ronin valve and attached a hose to it. I used a 6qt...
  5. Rear MIC Top Weight (69.4 lbs) and Home Made Ceiling Hoist

    Nice solution. Here is mine using two kayak hoists (100lbs per hoist) spaced two feet apart. Two feet seemed like a good distance to lift the mid panel and back cap off.
  6. My Cyber Orange Black Diamond 6cyl Auto Build Delivered (w/ Intro Video)

    This is the first I have heard about someone else not getting the headliner after ordering it. My Dealer showed me that it was on the order. I am waiting for a fix. What answer did your dealer give you? Mine said they will likely send a completely new top since the headliner is installed at the...
  7. Random QR code on the bronco windshield - Easter egg?

    You are correct. I was looking at a version of the window sticker I had saved prior to gate release. The date at the bottom in the margin changes. Once it has been cleared to leave the facility (gate released) that date stays firm. My blend and gate release were both 6/25/2021. Once I got past...
  8. Random QR code on the bronco windshield - Easter egg?

    @Administrator any idea what this random QR Code is? I scan it and it shows 7/22/2021 16:18. I first thought it was my Bronco’s birthday, but my blend date was 6/25 and my gate release was 6/17.
  9. 2021 Bronco vs 4Runner Pics / Extended MPG in real-world / O.A.S

    Air vents- It seems that it circulates okay in the cabin. I had my dog in the back of my four door for an hour drive this past weekend. She ended up laying down. I had the air on high but not max. I got 20.9mpg with my 2.7 Badlands.
  10. Carbonized Grey Badlands Delivered! My First Takeaways

    No, I don’t need the Sasquatch. I am happy with how the rig looks and rides.
  11. Carbonized Grey Badlands Delivered! My First Takeaways

    It is wind noise. It is not horrendous, but is there. I forgot to mention that I do not have sound deadening headliner. I did opt to add it when Ford gave it as a freebie and dealer confirmed that for me. Ford apparently did not add it to the build, but I am happy to have the car. My dealer...
  12. Carbonized Grey Badlands Delivered! My First Takeaways

    I didn’t get past 40% throttle and that picture was with roughly 25 miles on the odometer. I took ownership with 13 miles on the odometer. I don’t know how it was driven when it was gassed up. I can say there are two gas stations within a mile of my dealer…
  13. Carbonized Grey Badlands Delivered! My First Takeaways

    It will be my hunting rig, but I am not sure I will blend in too well!
  14. Carbonized Grey Badlands Delivered! My First Takeaways

    I had the front top panels off and had no problems, but I only have a 10min drive to work.
  15. Carbonized Grey Badlands Delivered! My First Takeaways
