  1. Let's see those modded Hot Wheels

    Still has a massive lift, but the 32” tires look more reasonable. Next step, drop it to more of a “stock” Black Diamond ride height.
  2. Caught up in the hype......

    Like many of you, I've been following the intro closely, developing different builds, anxiously awaiting any new "revelations". And, suddenly I'm swept back to 1981......and Ford's "The Boss is Back" campaign putting the 302 back into the Mustang after a couple of years of anemic 255 cu in V8s...
  3. What will the '21 Bronco and '83 Corvette have in common?

    Inquiring minds want to know.........
  4. ESOF - shifting from 4H to 2H after a driveline "bind"

    The only other 4X4 I've owned had manual hubs and a manually shifted "stick on the floor" transfer case. In winter driving on patchy roads with the front hubs locked, I was pretty good about shifting the transfer case back to 2H just before hitting long dry stretches of road...
  5. 7MT Tech

    Getrag-Ford says the 7MT (officially, the 7MTI550) is baseline rated at 550 Newton-meters (406lb-ft), but is scalable to as much as 800Nm (590 lb-ft) in passenger car applications. They reference the Pickup Truck and Light Commercial Vehicle segments in their tech sheet, so it would seem...
  6. Tow hook tech

    The chassis pic shows a bunch of extra hardware associated with the front tow loops, as compared to the simple bolt-on loops on the rear. Maybe the front loops pull out for use, then you can shove them back out of the way when not hooked up? If this is the case, will the front loops be prone...
  7. Thank you, Ford, for discounting the 2-door Base by $2205.

    The nominal difference between 4-door and 2-door models is $2495 across all trims (except FE). The "hypothetical" (removing the $1595 upcharge for 10sp auto) 4-door Base "total MSRP" would be $34695 including Destination Charge. Applying the $2495 difference between 4-door and 2-door means the...
  8. If the same inept team responsible for B&P also codes the system that generates the assembly line “build sheets”........

    Oooh, the possibilities............. Hack the system and put a 4A and rear locker on Base......
  9. I want to add 4A to a 7MT Bronco. Is the cheapest way to do it truly worth $8345?

    4A is a $795 option, but I have to move up to a Black Diamond to be able to get it with 7MT. $38340 MSRP versus $29995. Trying to decide if I’m going to like the MGV seats, washout floors and rear locker (and a few other things that could easily be sourced aftermarket) enough to justify the 8...
  10. Hey, Photoshop wizards.....

    How about taking the now infamous Iconic Silver "Wixom" Base, and Photoshopping some "pizza cutter" M/T 33s on it, color the wheel centers gloss black but leave the rim portion silver, with some front lift to level the stance?
  11. Can someone explain the price difference between 2-door and 4-door Base?

    On the Big Bend, Black Diamond, Outer Banks, Badlands and Wildtrack, the price upcharge from 2-door to 4-door is $2495. Base 4-door includes the Auto Transmission (worth $1595), so the price difference should be $4090, right? How do you explain the B&P difference of $6295? Is there actually...
  12. Sasquatch Price Glitches - "the math" as of Dec 21

    Current option cost on 4-door Base - $5790: $4995 for Sasquatch Package, plus "hidden" cost add of $795 for 4A. Cost of Auto trans already baked into 4 door. Current option cost on 2-door Base $8980 ($4995 for Sasquatch Package, plus "hidden" cost add of $795 for 4A, plus Auto Trans...
  13. Iconic Silver?

    I guess this is supposed be Iconic Silver? Anybody seen one in person?
  14. "Secondary Color" ideas

    Somebody with some photoshop skills.....show us what this Base would look like with a dark grey on the lower body, to match the bumpers and flares:
  15. What's Ford's logic regarding "Advanced 4x4" availability?

    For a street-tire Base model, you would think the "Advanced 4x4" transfer case, with 4A (AWD), would be a legit selling point. One example would be keeping soccer mom and the kiddos safer in all road conditions. I am very tempted by the value proposition of a non-Squatch 2-door Base model...
  16. Likely demographics for Base Base?

    With all the stressing out over trim levels, options, packages, unavailability of this or that combination, etc., some small fraction of the population is going to purchase and enjoy "zero option" Base Broncos. What demographic will go that route? - Rental companies catering to an "off-road...
  17. Effectiveness of Traction Control with open diffs?

    Do we have any evidence that the "Slippery" GOAT mode in a Base will aggressively brake-lock a "wheel in the air", and let you drive out similar to a locking diff?
  18. Remember when...........

    2020: Remember back when you could get a 2-door Explorer? . . . . 2025: Remember back when you could get a 2-door 6G Bronco?
  19. Traction control as alternative to front locker?

    Will one of the G.O.A.T. modes use traction control to selectively brake a spinning front tire and transfer torque to the other side through the open diff M190 axle?
  20. Lockers on a non-Sasquatch Base

    Ford, please give us the option of getting 4:70:1 lockers and 33 inch tires on a 2.3L 7-speed Base Model.
