    Rubicon Trail anyone???

    The Jeep LJ was a stretched wheelbase 2 door Wrangler, and many people consider it a holy grail, as the longer wheelbase helps pull it up and over some obstacles. Many people that mod Wranglers stretch the wheelbase, of course they also go with bigger tires and axles so they're not really losing...

    Drag race between 2.3 vs 2.7 of same configuration.

    Yeah that's why I pointed out the top gear acceleration times. That highlights power available low in the RPM band.

    Drag race between 2.3 vs 2.7 of same configuration.

    F-150 XLT SuperCrew 2.7 curb weight is 4627. Ranger Lariat SuperCrew curb weight is 4441. Also, look at the acceleration times in top gear to tell you a bit about the torque curve. F-150: Zero to 60 mph: 5.9 sec Zero to 100 mph: 14.8 sec Rolling start, 5-60 mph: 6.3 sec Top gear, 30-50 mph...

    Bronco Pickup Truck design sketch discovered in Ford video?!

    They sold 77,000 of them last year vs. 201,000 Wranglers. Ford sold 101,000 Rangers last year, Toyota sold 238,000 Tacomas. GM sold 120,000 Colorados/Canyons. So not a raging success, but still respectable numbers.

    How much would you pay for a V8 in the Bronco?

    :ROFLMAO: $1500 will barely get you a bellhousing adapter. Let alone and alternator ($300), AC kit ($1k), flywheel ($400), engine management ($2k), return-style fuel system conversion ($1.3k), not to mention the futzing around you'll have to do with the brake lines that are likely in the way...

    Fastest Bronco configuration - engine? 2-door vs 4-door? Sasquatch?

    To be quick off the line, you want high power, low weight, good traction, and gearing. I'd put my money on a 2 door 2.7 Black Diamond. - Faster spooling, more powerful engine - Better 4.46 gearing (4.46 and 32" tires are slightly more advantageous than the base 3.73 and 30" tires) - Lighter...

    Fastest Bronco configuration - engine? 2-door vs 4-door? Sasquatch?

    My favorite part of the OP's Jeep racing video is when they did a "slo-mo" finish line shot and I was like, "No no, you didn't need to slow the video down, they were both already going slow enough at the finish to clearly see." :ROFLMAO:

    Next Gen 2023 Ford Ranger Spied in First Look! [Updated with closeup pics]

    That's funny! I saw "eshilling" and thought it was Eric for some reason, but couldn't figure out why my brain went straight to Eric. This makes more sense.

    Next Gen 2023 Ford Ranger Spied in First Look! [Updated with closeup pics]

    I pulled 2019 numbers, the last full year without the pandemic disrupting purchasing, production, and supply. https://www.goodcarbadcar.net/2019-us-pickup-truck-sales-figures-by-model/ Also, F-150 sales were down in 2020 year in anticipation of the 2021 rollout. Who's going to waste money on...

    Confirmed - Raptor To Get V-8, Will The Warthog Get One Too?

    Yeah, the average V6 doesn't sound good, but it at least has more character than 4 cylinder engines do. What does "out of sequence" mean? You mean an uneven spacing between cylinders firing? Because a split-pin 60 degree V6 can fire once every 120 degrees, creating an even firing sequence...

    Next Gen 2023 Ford Ranger Spied in First Look! [Updated with closeup pics]

    Hahaha no. Chevy is getting CRUSHED due to the horrendous front end they put on the latest truck, and RAM is skating by on their interior alone. Ford sold 100,000 more F series trucks than GM sold Silverados and Sierras COMBINED, and Ford sold 260,000 more than RAM. Ford - DON'T listen to this...

    Next Gen 2023 Ford Ranger Spied in First Look! [Updated with closeup pics]

    If you compare an extended cab or super crew Ranger to a single cab F-150, then yes, the overall length will be similar. But compare like-for-like cab sizes and it's a different story. Plus the Ranger has a much tighter turning radius due to its shorter wheelbase and narrower width. Ranger...

    Helpful 32″ vs 35″ Tire Comparison Review

    I didn't see a comparison of dry acceleration or handling between the 32s and 35s. The big concern I've seen here is that everyone wants the 35s because they look sweet, but they're not sure the downsides of the 35s are worth it considering that the vast majority of the time the vast majority of...

    Build up a repairable?

    Depends on the state the sale is occuring in. You can sort by "No License Requirement" to see what a layperson can buy outright. If they do require a license, you can use a broker. Everything I've read about Copart says to expect a bunch of extra fees on top of the sale price. The thing that...

    Adding 16 lbs per wheel too much? (Swapping P rated to LT)

    In the year that Ford cancelled all sedans in favor of taller, higher from the ground crossovers, you're making this claim??
