I saw someone driving on the freeway like this 2 days ago with a longer board sticking out of the moonroof. You could see it flexing in the wind. Just a matter of time before it snapped. I got 3 lanes away from them immediately. 🤣
I also see boards unsafely secured and hanging over shortbed...
I think If you fold the rear seats down and lay on side sticking nose between the front seats that it will fit and can be locked inside. I do this with my 6’4”-6’7” short boards inside of my Acura RSX. Should definitely work inside a 2door Bronco with just a 6 footer.
Happy with gas engine for now. EVs are still an emerging technology and will only improve over the next 5-10 years(mileage range, etc.). The batteries currently last maybe 10 years if you properly maintain them (much shorter lifespan if you don’t) and are very expensive to replace. You also need...
Available information online indicates the MT88 transmission is “likely” to be manufactured/assembled in China. It has not been officially confirmed.

“Ford calls this new seven-speed transmission MT88.”

Hey. It was just a response to the “Getrag transmission” thread. I’m getting a Bronco and have no “requirements,” other than certain features I prefer, but I likely won’t be getting a manual transmission assembled in China.
More cryptic Twitter crap from Ford’s “product communications manager.” Not helpful at all. Is this something that’s going to be available for 2021? Focus on getting the 2021 Broncos out and give us some actual information. Nice picture but it’s useless without knowing anything else about it.
