    sasquatch + snow

    Good snow tire discussion here: https://www.bronco6g.com/forum/threads/all-terrain-vs-mud-terrain-tires-sasquatch-package.2540/ In short, Nokian makes a 35" snow tire, but you're better off going down to a more common size.

    Ford. If you are reading this. Some suggestions before launch

    Since that change wouldn't require any new hardware, I'd believe it is possible. I just wonder if there's a hardware limitation where Ford doesn't want the big Sas tires coupled with the manual's crawl ratio, or if it's a marketing limitation where they want the Sas to have all of the offroad...

    Ford. If you are reading this. Some suggestions before launch

    "We're listening" is PR speak for "No, but we'll string you along in hopes that you decide to compromise." Something Ford knows but people on the internet don't, is that there is a vocal minority that will raise a stink about specific issues or combinations, but they're a minority and not most...

    1999 Mustang GT talk.

    At that age, it's way more about how the car was treated than what it was originally. You could have a car that was perfectly maintained and treated well be 100% reliable and great to drive at 185k miles, or you could have something that was beat and neglected be rough and problematic at 80k...

    LS swapped Bronco

    I've been saying all along that the LS is the perfect V8 to swap into the Bronco, miles better than the high-strung Coyote or massive, heavy Godzilla. It'd be interesting to see if the Ford 10R80 transfer case bolt pattern is the same one that GM uses with their 10-speed. In that case it'd be...

    Bronco sound: 2.3 vs 2.7; possible exhaust upgrades; fake noise

    Nope - neither of the engines sound good when they're uncorked. Nothing like a V8 sound. Ford has also improved NVH over the past 50 years, so you're not going to feel the engines vibrate and frame twist. As for the "Active Noise Control" fake engine sounds? The Bronco will probably get it.

    Dual fuel tank with 1,000 mile range

    You could get the F-150 with dual tanks through '96, they were 19 and 18.2 gallons for a total of 37.2 gallons. You can spec an F-150 today with a single 36 gallon tank. You can spec a Super Duty with a 48 gallon tank.

    Water / meth injection

    ^ Those guys nailed it. Adding a second tank to fill, a pump, a level sensor, and a tune that needs all of that working perfectly so it doesn't grenade your engine isn't a recipe for long term reliability. It works great for the drag race guys since they can check after a run or two to make sure...

    Bronco or Raptor?

    The Raptor's mechanical LSD gives it an advantage in bad weather conditions and during acceleration where you wouldn't have the rear locked. There's been no mention of limited slips on the Bronco, so it's either an open diff with the computer using the brakes to shuffle power around, or it's locked.

    Winter Tires for 2021 Bronco

    Why do they have such a hard time deciding to put the 5.0 in?

    Because 90% of the Bronco is an image thing. Everybody wants to be a tough guy badass with the biggest, baddest thing around so that they can impress the people that don't actually care. It's why everyone here has a hardon for knocking Jeep - us vs. them. My team vs. your team. If you're not for...

    You've never launched a vehicle before?

    2.7L CAST IRON BLOCK - WHY?

    Yes - the 3.0 is a bored and stroked 2.7. Ford has a few different bellhousing patterns currently: - Modular (Coyote, 7.3 Godzilla, VooDoo, Predator, V10, 6.2) - note the squared-off top similar to the older SBF pattern - V6 (3.3 NA, 3.5 NA, 3.7 NA, EcoBoost V6s) - note the more round...

    Why do they have such a hard time deciding to put the 5.0 in?

    I think you're getting confused here. You'd do well to go back and reread the conversation and try to think about the point you were trying to make.

    Why did Ford make the new Ranger look just like the Colorado?

    The T6 Ranger has been around since 2011 and got a facelift in 2015. That's what was introduced in America for 2019. The Colorado got its last facelift in 2017. So Chevy made the Colorado look like the Ranger?

    Why do they have such a hard time deciding to put the 5.0 in?

    Hahahaha, this is great. I posted several videos asking anyone to point out where the Coyote is making this massive off-idle power but the EcoBoosts aren't (spoiler: there's no difference), so we pivoted to talking about the end of the RPM band, but now we're back to the off-idle torque thing...

    Why do they have such a hard time deciding to put the 5.0 in?

    I mostly race my V8s at the track, though I do drive my wife's 2.7 EcoBoost regularly.

    Why do they have such a hard time deciding to put the 5.0 in?

    To sum up your argument A: - A linear powerband is necessary for a good offroad engine *because* - A linear powerband prevents damage to drivetrain components (presumably because sudden, large increases in power production can be unpredictable) Couple that with your previous argument B: - The...

    Why do they have such a hard time deciding to put the 5.0 in?

    So because the EcoBoost's power drops off more quickly as it approaches redline, it's less linear than the V8, so it's MORE likely to cause driveline damage?

    Why do they have such a hard time deciding to put the 5.0 in?

    I accept that stock EcoBoosts see power peak and then drop off before redline. But the 5.0 does the same thing. Maybe to a different degree, and maybe at a different RPM, but power drops off. Would you be happier if they lowered the rev limiter so that power didn't have a chance to drop off...
