    Bronco roof aftermarket?

    Dunno. But I'd be interested in a cored carbon fiber roof, and side Frames with eisenglass windows. Might build one myself!

    Spotted: 2021 Bronco VS Jeep Wrangler In The Wild!

    This is probably the toughest stuff I'll subject my Bronco to while chasing trout/camping out. [youtube]

    Spotted: 2021 Bronco VS Jeep Wrangler In The Wild!

    Those rear shock mounts look frail and vulnerable.

    Engine Changes

    ChrispyKC - Great info there! In my 2013 3.5 EB, (82000mi) I run Full syn Pennzy, Motorcraft Oil filter, Napa Premium air filter and change frequently in the mountains (50% more surface area). I also drilled the 3/16" hole in the intercooler to drain any gunk that builds up (in lieu of a...

    Turbo engines for off roading

    We shall see. The original was actually showing 3200 pounds curb weight for the wagon version. We will probably have tires that are 200 pounds heavier, and another 300 pounds of plastic trim! I wonder how much modern corrosion protection weighs? The original had virtually none.

    Ford Patents Light Weight Removable Body Door System with Built-In Tube Doors for 2021 Ford Bronco

    I agree. A horizontal surface, with tons of seams, in snow, ice and rain with a twisting, 4 wheeling frame underneath! I hope we get a hard top option like the original. Maybe in Aluminum.

    Turbo engines for off roading

    Yeah the original was around 3500 I think, depending on which top you had. Aluminum body panels shaved a lot off the newer f150s....

    Turbo engines for off roading

    So, we are now in out 7th year with the 3.5 EB in our f150. We are on tight trails at high altitude maybe 10 times a year. Most of those trips find us in low range climbing fields of baby heads, loose rock, shelves etc, rear axle locked for at least part of the time. Carrying camping gear...

    2-Door 2021 Bronco Prototype Makes Grand First Appearance, Bombing Through Snow and Catching Air!

    Yeah, it looks like the Explorer hybrid offers no real advantage in power or mpg, costs more, more complex, no turbo and weighs 450 pounds more. Nuts to that.

    Someone modified Mo Aoun’s render a bit...

    That is purty! What is the latest conjecture on: 1) Round flares versus EB squared off style? 2) Winch mounting, knowing that we will have that big ole intercooler right there?

    New Full Length Official Bronco Prototype Testing Video

    Why would you suspect anything different with regard to 4lo? Gotta figure they are using something like the trusty Borg Warner T-case from the f-150...

    New Full Length Official Bronco Prototype Testing Video

    So, big skid plate on passenger side - fuel tank? exhaust pipe - crossover to a "y" maybe? Seems like a V-6.... Sure looks like a Y pipe with similar cladding to the nearest pipe.

    Visual estimate of 2021 Bronco wheelbase and size (112 inch wheelbase guesstimate)

    Lowered tailgate, backed up to a hill and walked the pony out of there. She and the seller apparently did the same thing at origin to load it up.

    Visual estimate of 2021 Bronco wheelbase and size (112 inch wheelbase guesstimate)

    I'll share a good early Bronco dimensions/cargo space story. Back in the day, my then-girlfriend, an equestrienne, used my '71 Bronco for the afternoon. I arrived back at the house from school to find she had a bought a big pony and brought it home in the back of the truck. It's halter was...

    Ford's Leadership and Financial Situation Effect On Bronco

    Nice description of the evolution of some of the "value" in our Vehicles, Crispy. Each of those small things needs to be engineered for production and durability. Oh, And I don't want to ever have to take it to the shop....

    2-Door 2021 Bronco Prototype Makes Grand First Appearance, Bombing Through Snow and Catching Air!

    Here is why I ask about width - This is one of the trails we aspire to (though I'll have to slip a valium into the wife's morning coffee before we go....) I think these old Willys were right about 70" wide. At the 5:20 mark in the video you can see where width becomes a bit of a challenge...
