I had been wanting a convertible Mustang for years, but where i'm at I'd only drive it between April and September, what a waste. So I look at the Bronco as my 4x4 convertible 'Stang that I can enjoy year round. Top has to come off, that's the whole point.
I've got a little fleet that ill be adding to. I daily my '11 F150 Limited and my '06 Chrysler 300C. My 02 Excursion is a toy these days as is my '97 Explorer and '97 F150 snow plow/work truck.
Plus some classics during the summer.
Depending on what I end up with stock BFG's or Goodyears ill run them until they are gone for summer only. I'll probably only put on 5k miles a year or so.
At the first winter I'll have a second set of wheels with dedicated snow tires, either Bridgestone Blizzak or Cooper M+S studded in the...
I'm lucky in the fact the Bronco is not necessary to me. It's a toy, an extra, a want not a need. I'm a very impatient person but with this I have an odd calm. I'm super excited and I'll wait. The Bronco will be my first brand new vehicle so I'm double excited.
Hopefully 12 months from now...
My guess is it typically requires a perforated seat fabric, which given the Broncos top off/doors off dirt flying everywhere it would clog the holes in the seat rather quickly.
That said I love them in my F150, although I only use them a handful of times a year here in Alaska.
I'm happy, wish for some more bright colors but eh.
I want 4 doors, leather, heated seats/steering wheel, 2.7 V6 at least a rear locker. With that in mind it's either a Outer Banks with Sasquatch Package OR a Badlands depending on what I can fit into the budget I gave myself.
All it is, is a newer better designed system that arrived in the new for 95 Explorer as "control-trac" 4x4 and the same system with beefier parts used on the 97 Expedition which also had a 2H/A4wd/4H/4L setting.
Its just like a Lariat or above F-150. You have 2H 4A 4H and 4L. You can use 4A at any speed on any surface. 4H/4L work exactly the same as the regular 2 speed case.
4A detects slip in the rear tires and kicks the front tires in very quickly and seamlessly. Works awesome in my F150 and it stays...
