    Ford targets April 14 to resume US production

    Considering that plant is in the epicenter for Michigan, makes (unfortunate all the way around) sense.

    Ford targets April 14 to resume US production

    Well, if you structure your company to avoid paying taxes in to governments of countries that actually can support you (and paying employees of those countries), then you don’t deserve the benefit of that government when you need it in an emergency. Fair is fair.

    What’s your dealbreaker for a new Bronco?

    Black is a love hate color - dirt shows instantly - but get it right and it is beautiful.

    What’s your dealbreaker for a new Bronco?

    Or don’t and get everything all muddy!

    Agree - my original post was consider surge brakes to help control the trailer momentum / keep excessive lever forces in check.

    What’s your dealbreaker for a new Bronco?

    Because the are times you want to control the car instead of the computer because you like it and you want to. (I am assuming the Mustang has paddles?) So the reason the USS McCain collided was new destroyers come with touch screen throttles. The bridge watch team thought they had moved...

    What’s your dealbreaker for a new Bronco?

    Reason for black wheels = you can’t see the brake dust and they contrast with lighter shades of gray. (I’m ambivalent - have black center and spoke wheels with silver rims / remind me of Fuchs.) Agree on the towing and manual.

    Type of tires you want

    I can tell you from experience that Duratracs meet your criteria. I got 75k miles out of my first set on the JKUR. They are quiet (for big tires with muddish blocks on them) for about 3/4’s of those miles. Can’t comment on gas mileage - I drive a lifted Jeep on 34’s. They ride a lot softer than...

    Type of tires you want

    So have you had both Duratracs and Nittos? Opinions? AutoEdits did the Patagonias to reduce weight and seems to like them.

    Type of tires you want

    My neighbor’s FJ had KO2s, and his son got stuck in the mud twice. Lockers, KM2s or Duratracs, and a tow strap saved the day. (Somewhere I posted my FJ Recovery Vehicle decal ...) Duratracs are quieter and better behaved as a daily all conditions tire.

    There are bent frame videos out there with a Gladiator and a Colorado. I think my take away from those videos are install surge brakes on your off-road trailer to avoid the full weight of the trailer surging down onto your hitch and bending your crumple zones in the dips off road.

    The gripe thread.

    Agreed, but if that top were white, it would be saying “Bronco”. Jeeps with body color tops remind me of H3’s in the same way. It ain’t right!

    The gripe thread.

    We have (or have we?...) It appears more vertical than the original.

    What will you be towing?

    Yeah - I went from 911 to Miata to Jetta for the same reasons a long while back. The outcomes were worth it though. Congrats!

    Let's overanalyze the mule undercarriage

    No drain plug under that diff, unless there is one in front. New Gripe: Guess we have to take the cover off every time, or get a cover with a drain plug. Having both a TJ with no plug, and a JK with drain plugs, guess which one gets it’s differential fluid changed more often?

    Let's overanalyze the mule undercarriage

    Looks to me like there is a plate either hiding or protecting the front lower side of the rear shock and maybe a hint these are coil overs. The camo spy shots didn’t show the boxing for the control arm attach points, this makes me feel better about their protection.

    Yeah, I don’t get rooftop tents. They are expensive and heavy. You’ll have to level the vehicle, last I checked mountain lions and bears can climb, and if you have to make a beer run you have to break camp.

    What’s your dealbreaker for a new Bronco?

    If they do that they totally miss the influencers / thought leadership fight against Jeep.
