  1. What gas mileage are you getting with 2.7 and SAS?

    Man, you nailed it. And I mean every single line of your post. There is a lot that goes into driving like this and getting great gas mileage. I know as I drive like this. And I accelerate moderately and don't hold up traffic either. I am a young 63 (also a mechanical engineer and still...
  2. 2023 Bronco Heritage Edition Revealed! 1,966 Heritage Limited Edition (Badlands) Units to be Produced. Unlimited (Big Bend) Heritage Editions

    Gosh they look good. These will be the vehicles that you will see at auctions fetching unbelievable $$$$. They will be priced high to begin with and they will be collector vehicles only.
  3. 2022 Base 2 Door SAS Mod Journey

    LOL, made me smile big! I sure do remember roll down windows! My parents cars from the 60's and early 70's all had them. Power windows was an option they could not afford. (My mom splurged in 1978 on her last car- it had power windows). All of my vehicles from the 70's until the 90's had...
  4. Crash Bars not Budging?

    1/2 inch drive 6 point socket, ratchet and/or Breaker Bar.
  5. Zero Ford programs for the Bronco…nothing.

    Prices are still insane without any incentives. I keep reading about prices increase from the manufacturers. You never read about a decrease, LOL. I had to buy a commuter car that got 40-50 MPG earlier this year. I could no longer afford to drive my Silverado truck with gas prices...
  6. Mud Flaps -- install all 4 or just the fronts?

    I plan on going with just the fronts- going with Mabbet.
  7. Don’t believe the hype

    Totally agree with this. My wife and I are very satisfied with the stereo system in the Basesquatch. Some of you must be accustomed to very high end systems. We have a C6 Corvette with a Bose system. It is very good- better than the Basesquatch system although not that much to call the Base...
  8. Anyone in a Big Bend regret their choice? Any Base model owners wish they upgraded?

    I am very happy with my Base Sasquatch- only option the 2.7. I don't feel I am missing anything at all- love it just the way it is. The higher trims seem so expensive what you actually get. The only one option that would be most valuable on the trail on all of those trims is the sway bar...
  9. 2022 Base 2 Door SAS Mod Journey

    Nice personal touches! When I looked at the assembly line photo, I gave it a double take. I have the exact same build, same color, looks like the same assembly line photo. My only mod so far is the Curt hitch. Going to order the Mabett mud flaps and wiring harness and that's about it, I'm...
  10. Pros and cons of factory hitch vs. aftermarket?

    For the light tow rating of the Bronco, I'd go aftermarket hitch with a 4 pin in line. If I needed to tow something that needed trailer brakes I'd opt for a pick up or something with a much larger tow rating. I have towed so may boats and small landscape and utility trailers without trailer...
  11. 7speed manual for off-road/crawling

    I love manual transmission for off road. Back in the day I had two Gen 1 Broncos, Toyota Land Cruiser and a Jeep CJ5- where all I did was go 4 wheeling in any spare time back in the 70's and early 80's. They were all manuals. Some on the tree (Broncos), some on the floor. 1st gear, low range...
  12. 2.7L V6, is it fixed?

    I have always been a fan of getting the biggest engine you can in the lightest and most base package you can. Simple equation of power to weight and keep the cost down. That was my logic when I reserved and bought my Bronco. I went with a 2 door Basesquatch 2.7 and it for sure did not...
  13. Chopping / Cutting 4-Door Rock Rails to Fit 2-Door Bronco

    Are there any other options to cover up that area on the 2 door? It looks naked as it is from the factory- especially with the slots and threaded holes showing. This rock rails are super pricey to me for what you get. I was thinking to fabricate some aluminum or steel strips, nice coat of...
  14. Anyone have any experience painting the bolts on the beauty rings?

    Bolts are difficult to paint- as once you put them on and tighten them with a socket, it most of the time in my experience messes up the paint (chipping) in the corners where the socket makes contact after install and tightening. The ones in the photo almost look like they are "anodized"...
  15. Screwed over by Chula Vista Ford

    Terrible, I so hate when I see this. Just pure Greed. OK let them be greedy on any dealer stock but NOT for special orders. I went in months before my Bronco was going to be delivered and asked if there was going to be a mark up. They stated no BUT also stated something similar to your...
  16. MGV sucks

    At first when I reserved back in July 2020 I went for a Black Diamond. I wanted to get the reservation in as quickly as possible. The MGV sounded real good being able to be so easily cleaned, drain floors, etc. Then between the reservation and placing the actual order I started really...
  17. Which mudflaps are best for a 4dr Badlands Sasquatch?

    I find it surprising and disappointing that Ford does not make any for the Sasquatch. You can use the standard ones if you modify them, make your own bracket and drill holes in the flares. There are threads on this. I am against this and personally do not like the look of the Weathertech...
  18. Should I Trade my 22 Wrangler for a Bronco?

    I think it's a matter of personal preference. You may or may not lose if you sell or trade in....depending if you want a Bronco now and pay ADM or order one where you can get one for MSRP. Each have their advantage and disadvantage- which is well publicized- so that's where it comes down to...
  19. Bronco Team Engineering Confirms 7.0 Quarts for 2.7L Engine Oil Change is Correct

    Precisely, they won't issue recall as it is not safety related although they could at least issue a TSB clarifying the correct oil refill capacity and reading on the dipsticks.
  20. Bronco Team Engineering Confirms 7.0 Quarts for 2.7L Engine Oil Change is Correct

    Jeez, there are 2 threads on this now with so many pages. Different dip sticks, part numbers, oil pans, theories, etc. I keep scanning through them looking for same thing. All I want to know is...is it 6 or 7 quarts. If still not confirmed go with 6.5? .5 quart over or under filled is the...
