  1. Badlands: To Squatch or Not to Squatch

    As we steadily approach the end of MY 22, and prepare to re-order for MY 23, I'm seriously considering changing my order from a Non-SAS Badlands to a Sasquatched Badlands. Originally I had a couple assumptions pushing me to non-SAS, but now I'm questioning these assumptions. I originally...
  2. Ford Bronco Auto Unlock Doesn't Work While Doors are Off | Key Fob locked in Trunk

    Pickens Party of 5 for the win again on the information sharing front... This seems like a big deal to me - no mechanical way to unlock the trunk in general with the doors off without key fob. Thanks PP5!
  3. Crawler Gear Speed Video and Granger Mannequins Test Drives

    Hi all, It finally happened! My wife and I finally got to sit in and drive the new Broncos. What an awesome experience. We live near and ordered through Granger so we went to their dealership to drive their mannequins. Their two mannequins combined really cover the bits and pieces of the...
  4. Dealership Wall of Fame (Best Dealers to Buy a Bronco From)

    Instead of taking a inherently negative approach to helping people find a dealership to work with, why not take an inherently POSITIVE approach? Just a hypothesis - there will be far more positive dealers to pick from then negative dealers to avoid ;) My contribution: Name: Granger Motors...
  5. Advice for would-be Bronco off-roaders

    After 6 months on this forum I can see that there are lots of potentially new off-road enthusiasts looking to get into Broncos! This is exciting and it’ll be great to see the 4x4 community grow in general. I also see lots of “what’s this do”, “do I need this or that” type questions, so I...
  6. Someone explain keyless entry pads to me

    I get it - it looks ugly. That’s not what this is about. I have keyless entry on my ‘03 Excursion and I LOVE the functionality, and I would really like to have this functionality on the Bronco without this hideous thing right on the door. On new Ford vehicles, if you order the vehicle WITHOUT...
  7. Manual 7 Speed - Crank In Gear function and Hill Descent Control revealed

    Was anyone else aware of these 2 interesting features available with the 7-speed manual? Awesome! I don't know what they do exactly but what I THINK they COULD be: "Crank-in-Gear": Ability to sit in Crawler gear (and maybe reverse?) with engine off, crank engine starter to creep...
  8. Cannot wait for my 2 pedal 7 speed!!! (B&P Fail Humor)

    Man am I looking forward to my gas-pedaless Bronco! I'll be so safe by either being constantly in neutral or completely stopped! Do you think they'll reduce my insurance premiums??? Maybe not I suppose due to the razor-blade sheet metal brackets in the doorways when I take my doors off...
  9. 2.3l Alternator Packaging and Placement

    My observation is that the alternator placement on the 2.3l is not awesome for serviceability, but likely adequate to stay up out of water and mud for 80% of use cases. My question is, is the alternator a totally sealed unit as it appears to be here? That would be a win for longevity and...
  10. Best Bronco for Cowboy Boots?!

    Let’s have some fun. I love the new Bronco and I’m a bit of a country boy... But IMHO - the style does not go well with cowboy boots! Good thing this is not a criteria for me buying :LOL: For y’all most comfortable in a pair of shit kickers, which Bronco fits your style? If cowboy boots...
  11. My in-person first impressions with Granger Ford & Ford Ranger 2.3L

    I am lucky enough to live 20min from Granger Ford in Central Iowa, and I thought I would share my experience of visiting Granger Ford for the first time as well as test driving a 2.3L Ranger. I thought this would be helpful for everyone scattered about the US that's chosen Granger as a dealer...
  12. Cyber Orange Paint Thread

    **Updated with in-person viewing of Cyber Orange Ranger** - 2/19/21 From post #245: My wife and I were lucky enough to track down a Cyber Orange Ranger today at Dewey Ford in Ankeny, IA! WOW is all I can say - what a pretty and reactive color. The conditions while viewing it were 100% blue sky...
  13. Why will the 6G Bronco be your First New Vehicle?

    I'm curious to know who else is like me - the 6G Bronco will be my first NEW vehicle! Why will the 6G Bronco be your first NEW vehicle? I hardly ever own new things. I have a '79 Bronco, '03 Excursion, and '04 Camry in my stable. All bought used. Lawn mowers, trailers, snowblowers...
  14. What! An advantage of IFS in rock crawling??

    Nothing like a good 'ol Solid Axle vs. IFS debate :ROFLMAO: My goal here is not to say that IFS is better than solid axles or vice versa. My point is that IFS can have some advantages, even in rock crawling! For reference, I wheel this, so I know damn well how good solid axles are: In...
  15. Industry Professionals: Let's Grade Ford.

    I thought it would be interesting (and valuable) for professionals in industry to have a thought provoking thread discussing all aspects of the new Bronco release from the perspective of industry professionals – NOT an average customer. NO dumb questions about “can I get this option with that...
  16. 2.3L Bible: General Overviews and Information Research?

    I am very familiar with the 6.0L powerstroke (own an Excursion). I loved learning about this engine because of the wealth of knowledge from resources like The 6.0L Bible, and the ability to get a basic understanding by studying images, charts, technical publications, etc. What type of similar...
  17. Badlands vs. BadSquatch (Badlands + Sasquatch) Comparison Chart

    I hope I can help bring some clarity and simplicity to a common question. It bugs me when I see the same old "what does Sasquatch get me that Badlands doesn't already have" question followed by lazy, partial, or just plain wrong answers. Here is the answer as simple as I can make it...
