    Ford Bungling Orders?

    Thank you all that responded. As some have pointed out, I have not been on here much recently. I will wait and see what happens when Bronco's start getting delivered. I may change my mind again and get back in line. Hope you all have a good year and good luck with your orders and getting a new...

    Ford Bungling Orders?

    I did make a point in the cancellation process to select "other" for the reason and spell out what made me go that direction. Maybe the next person will have a clearer explanation or a better experience.

    Ford Bungling Orders?

    I have one Ford dealer here, another with the exact same name and ownership 50 miles away and a different one a 9 hour drive away in Fairbanks. I already cancelled the order. I don't do well with bully tactics. I don't "need" a Bronco. I don't "need" anything of the sort. It was a want. And with...

    Ford Bungling Orders?

    Just got off the phone with the Anchorage Kendall Ford Sales Manager. He said that if I don't order now for the 2022 model year (since some items I want are late 21 availability) then I will have to go to the back of the line. He also said that he has over 200 reservations, but Ford is only...

    Levine: new Bronco colors coming in 2022

    I'm leaning that way myself. I want the painted black roof that last I heard would be late availability or a 22 M.Y. item. I also kinda am wanting to see what issues the new Bronco has in its first year out. I also hear that new colors may come out for 22 and want to see what's going to be...

    Built Bronco Badlands vs Wrangler Rubicon Side by Side Look

    The way that picture is, it looks like the Jeep is sitting with more ground clearance than the Bronco. According to Jeep's brochure, the stock Rubi is 10.8" of ground clearance, yet it doesn't specify the tire size. According to the Ford website a base Bronco sits at 8.3" while with 35" tires it...

    2021 Bronco BUILD & PRICE Configurator Is Finally Live (For Real)!! Share your build inside.

    So, on the Badlands 4 Door. The brush guard and the 2.7L engine are mutually exclusive. As are the hardtop sound insulation and the 2.7L engine. Also, the pod lights and the lightbar cannot be both added. Hope they get those sorted before I actually order mine. That and the hardtop in black or...

    2021 Bronco BUILD & PRICE Configurator Is Finally Live (For Real)!! Share your build inside.

    Yeah, mine hit 63K. Also noticed the hardtop was only the MIC option. I guess I'll wait and see what's available when my turn rolls around. I did notice that the roof rack was not available when I selected the 2.7 engine and 10 speed trans. It kept trying to unselect the engine and trans. This...

    Video: Bronco testing in Johnson Valley! (Posted by Loren Healy, Champion off-road racer)

    I plan to use mine hunting. I'd like to see it on a trail like we have up here in AK. Truck width with terrain from dry to 30" standing water and running river fordings with climbs and descents up to 45 degrees. With a load on a roof rack and the back full of gear. Or hauling a meat trailer.

    Spotted in Wild: Rapid Red Big Bend & Cyber Orange Outer Banks Broncos

    Princess...... At least you said it. I want the hard top to mostly keep my heat in here in Alaska. I won't say I'm a princess..... but I am bitchy when I get cold.

    Spotted in Wild: Rapid Red Big Bend & Cyber Orange Outer Banks Broncos

    I'm handicappable, so I need steps, but I also will be using this in the field as a hunting rig, so I need rock rails. Depending on what I see, I may get regular rails and have a local shop weld on some steps that the uprights are thick steel cable so when I do rub something, they flex and...

    Spotted in Wild: Rapid Red Big Bend & Cyber Orange Outer Banks Broncos

    Well, I wanted the Cyber Orange, but the more I see it, the less I like it. Thinking now one of the reds. My last truck was dark red, so maybe stick with that. Why you making them pass on the right? I do appreciate the pics and video. Thank you.

    Lux package not worth it at all

    You're welcome. I aim to please. Or at least make people laugh.

    Never needs Service, Sealed for LIFE Transmissions, when do they actually need Service?

    Well, if the Bronco is going to have a sealed trans auto, I guess I'm stuck with that. I can drive a manual, but my wife can't. I'm also not going to burn up a clutch trying to teach her. Guess I'll just have to keep an eye on it. An extended warranty will be bought as well.

    Never needs Service, Sealed for LIFE Transmissions, when do they actually need Service?

    Yep. We have a 2012 Journey that has that "sealed" tranny that we bought new. 65000 miles and they just replaced it last month. Thankfully when we refinanced it a couple years ago, I bought an extended warranty. Best $3300 I spent. The tranny replacement ran over $7000 and all we had to pay was...

    Could I tow this?

    The 3500# limit is why I'm looking at getting a small aluminum cargo trailer and making my own camper. A. I don't need or use most of the features in most RV's. B. Keeping what gear I take simple saves weight. More capacity for needs. C. I can get larger tires so I can take the trailer on...

    Would You Seriously Consider Green?

    I initially wanted a JLUnlimited in that green pic you shared. As my last name is Lime, it fits. I'd love a green on the Bronco as I will be using it as my hunting rig as well as all round daily driver and off road vehicle. Failing the bright green like Jeep has, an OD shade would be cool...

    All Bronco Colors Painted Bodies Close Up Walkthrough

    I dunno. Seeing it here on the body and not just rendered or on the can, I have mixed feelings. I wanted CO, but now not so much. Might end up with one of the reds.
