  1. Does under-hood sound insulation actually work? Testing says...

    Based on my testing, the answer is yes and no. It DOES reduce sound levels when the Bronco is idling, as measured outside the vehicle It DOES give the hood a more finished look It DOES likely make it easier to clean the underside of the hood, keeping mud and crud out of the recesses in the...
  2. ANOTHER mud flap post?!?!

    Haha I know, just what we need on this forum. But I wanted to share an idea that I think some might find helpful. I was able to fabricate a really good mud flap mounting option using a home-made bracket attached to the crash bars, and then used that to mount a good quality mud flap that you can...
  3. Inexpensive mounting option for modular bumper pod lights

    If you have read any of my posts or watched any of my videos, you know I like to build things rather than buy them whenever I can, so that is what I did when installing Lasfit 3" pod lights on my modular bumper. I'll put the full video at the bottom but here are some pictures to illustrate. I...
  4. Inexpensive yet impactful speaker upgrade plus FORScan mod

    I finally got around to installing upgraded 4" speakers in front and rear and made a video that I hope will help others that want to do this as well. This project only costs about $120 so I think the resulting improvement in sound quality is well worth that investment. I also recorded some...
  5. CUSTOM Door Sill Guards from Fast Intentions

    I just finished installing them today and in my opinion it is a quality product, and the option to add custom graphics is a really cool add on! Take a look and let me know what you think. @Fast Intentions Inc. is a forum sponsor and they were really easy to work with. If you don't want to...
  6. Full install video for aftermarket hitch and wiring harness

    I made a video showing the full install process in detail. Let me know if you have any questions and I can help you out. Installing just the hitch is very easy, maybe a 2 out of 10 on difficulty scale. For the 4 pin wiring harness, maybe a 4 out of 10, the most difficult part being routing the...
  7. How to fix Curt trailer wiring harness to work on halogen tail lights

    As detailed in this post linked here, the Curt and Tekonsha trailer hitch wiring harnesses currently on the market only work with LED style tail lights. If you have the halogen tail lights that are standard on Base, Big Bend, and Black Diamond models, the current harness design will NOT work...
  8. Wrapped my Base MIC top in Gloss White

    I have seen some white painted tops, but not a wrapped top. So, here is proof it can be done! Full video below. This is not intended to be a professional-level quality wrap job. I just wanted to see if it could be done by a novice. This is a 1.0 MIC top that is going to be replaced in about 6...
  9. How to replace 2021+ Bronco brake pads and rotors using Brake Maintenance Mode

    I made a video that details the process, including the very important step of putting the Bronco in to 'Brake Maintenance Mode' before you start. I hope this post can save others from frustration in the future. If you skip that step you can hurt yourself or cause your Bronco to throw error...
  10. Is This the First Salvage 2021 Bronco?

    I've been checking Copart from time to time and this is the first Bronco I have seen. https://www.copart.com/lot/58429491/2021-ford-bronco-base-ma-north-boston Obviously it is mislabeled as a Base. Just from the pictures, looks like fairly minor rear end damage to total a $50k vehicle. Maybe...
  11. DIY Door Storage Rack For About $10

    I built my own storage rack for my 2-door, which is especially helpful since they do not store in the rear storage area (unlike the 4-door, if you have the storage bags). Short version of the build, I used these hooks from Harbor Freight and they worked really well...
  12. Rear glass hinge covers incorrectly installed on my Bronco!

    Posting this as a Public Service Announcement and also copying @Ford Motor Company for quality control improvement purposes. I'll start by saying this is minor, but still worth noting... The weather was super nice this weekend and I had my 2 door MIC top off and sitting on some blocks on the...
  13. DIY white steel wheels installed on my Base retro build

    I've finished the wheels and very happy with how they turned out. You can watch the full process here: Top is next, but waiting for it to be replaced first of course before I do any work on it.
  14. What is recommended tire pressure on a Black Diamond?

    Can somebody with a Black Diamond please tell me what the recommended tire pressure is as shown on the door frame placard? Ideally from a 2 door model, but I will take a 4 door since that is probably a lot easier to find out there. Reason I am asking: I installed on my Base the same tires...
  15. Installed 33 inch tires on stock Base rims - no mods required

    These are 285-75-16 tires (technically a diameter of 32.8 inches) , mounted to stock Base Bronco rims. No lift or spacers, and no rubbing in my testing. That increases the stock 10 inch tire width to a much beefier 11.2 inches. See video linked here for full testing with shocks/springs...
  16. 2 Door Base First Impressions and Ride Along With 360-degree Camera

    A buddy of mine is really in to fancy 360 and drone cameras and took some cool footage that you can enjoy if you are still waiting for your Bronco to arrive. If watching on a computer use your mouse to drag the image viewpoint around, on a mobile device you can move the phone around in space to...
  17. Door Dimensions - can somebody measure for me?

    While waiting for my 2-door Bronco, I'm going to build a garage storage rack for the doors. Could somebody who has taken delivery of a 2-door please measure one of the doors and provide dimensions? Maximum length, maximum height, and thickness ideally both at the bottom of the door where it...
  18. $5790 for Sasquatch on the Base!!

    That's about $1500 more than I was hoping for
  19. Window - Mirror interference?

    Something struck me as I was looking at Bronco pictures the other day.... How has Bronco solved the problem of opening doors (front doors specifically for the 4 door model) with window glass up/extended, not interfering with the body-mounted side mirrors? Looking at pictures, it looks like the...
