  1. Subtle but meaningful updates between MY'23 and '24; including window flap

    Well I have discovered some interesting changes between MY2023 BL and the 2024 BL. For reference, they are both Lux pkg, stretch (4dr). The '23 blend was 5/23/23 and the blend for the '24 was 4/9/24. 1st - window flap. The new '24 significantly improved the response time for the window drop...
  2. Help with bead lock torque questions?

    Ok, brand new to beadlocks so apologize for what may be a stupid question. When periodically checking the torque on the bead locks is it adequate to do a quick check with the tire mounted? Do you need to jack-up the wheel to get the weight off the tire every time? Or, do you guys actually...
  3. Brabus? Is it just a rich toy?

    Ok, I admit I've never even heard of these. It's apparently an after market upgrade group doing G wagons as well as other vehicles. I pulled out this morning behind one and had no idea what is was. I was able to get along side and was still a bit bamboozled. It's not as wide, tall or overall...
  4. Checking beadlock torque - dumb question

    Ok, I’ve got beadlocks on the way and these will be my first beadlock wheels. Sorry for the newbie/dumb question but here goes: when heading off road, is it adequate to do a quick pre-trip torque check with the tires mounted, aired and sitting on the ground? Other than finding one totally...
  5. MIC hard top replaced by dealer with happy results

    Thought I'd share a seemingly rare outcome with a MIC top. Ordered a stretch limo Badlands (4d,ht) with the 3/27 crowd; build week of 5/22, delivered 7/21. When I went to pick it up the salesman told me right as I walked up that they had already ordered a new top. To say the least I was a bit...
  6. Ford's tracker may have it's issues but it just may have a solution to prevent AI from taking over

    Ok, so it seems the tracker get's unreliable once you get to "In Production". I know I'm stuck in production headed towards 3 weeks and counting as apparently many others are as well. However, it occurs to me there's one potentially bright spot; the very tracker we all access may hold the...
  7. Hutchinson Rock Monster if I carry a spare, what?

    Looking at going to Hutchinsons. If I still decide to carry a spare should I just use one of the OEM wheels or maybe something a bit upgraded? Presently waiting on my Badlands with the stock wheels, not Sas. Any input/education is appreciated.
  8. 5/22/23 build week

    Hey! My build week has been one day or another in the same week - 5/22 since I got my notice. I haven't had any "official" update from Ford but suddenly this morning the tracker posted me In Production! It shows updated today 5/16/23. No emails and no window sticker yet but there ya go...
  9. Hoop steps not real rock rails?

    Ordered the hoop step option not realizing they weren’t mounted to the same OEM rock rails. Is it worth changing to OEM rails that claim to be weight supporting? Are the OEM rails that much better? (Have access to some OEM for cheap.) Or should I just wait and do aftermarket rails. Seems to be...
  10. Bronco DR lightbar

    Hello all. As I have mentioned, I can't seem to help but shop accessories even though my build date is still 2 weeks away. Anyway, looking at the multitude of lighting accessories I really like this light bar they put on the DR. I have looked at a bunch of manufacturer's versions but can't seem...
  11. What's wrong with me? It's not even here and I'm shopping accessories

    This is crazy. Presently my scheduled build is a month away and yesterday I ordered Maxtrax; today I'm ordering a roof rack since i couldn't configure one and I've been researching compressors! This is ridiculous. I seem to have regressed to a child that can't wait for Christmas morning.
