  1. Analog Tire Pressure Gauge with Air Release

    No insight on gauges (I lose them before they break) but don’t let too much air out due to heat. In summer, you need a few extra pounds to prevent too much tire flex which is what builds up the heat and causes failures. Particularly on a heavier vehicle like a Bronco or SUV. All those...
  2. Would you buy a known (but fixed) Lemon?

    Most states I’m aware of stipulate Lemon Law applies to new vehicles only. Since the Explorer has been titled before, it can’t qualify as new. In 2016, FCA bought back my Chrysler 300 due to parts availability (instrument cluster). It took 9 weeks for the part to become available, I liked...
  3. Bronco and Lemon Law

    Florida is 30 days out of service or 3+ times for same repair. FCA bought back my ‘14 Chrysler 300 John Varvatos after the instrument cluster shorted out and they could not get the part to fix it. Car still ran and drove great but no gauges is No Burno! They also paid for my rental car the...
  4. Tailgate Table - ISO key features

    I have the Ford Accessory tailgate table. No rattles but zero other reason to consider it. Only one shelf and installation required drilling 4 holes in the tailgate of my brand new 60k car. Nerve racking! I’d recommend shopping for one that uses existing mounting points and make your...
  5. New Katzkin Seats w/ Custom Embossed Bronco Embroidery

    Beautiful. The contrast between the caramel leather and the black and gray trim is striking.
  6. Hail damage dealer discount

    A 5% discount off MSRP is not adequate for damage to a brand new car. There’s a dollar threshold that a dealer has to disclose damage to a previously untitled “new” vehicle otherwise they’d be selling new cars with significant crash damage from shipping or pre sale usage as new after repair...
  7. Rear A/C

    You hit on a key component, price. When the 6G Bronco was launched and many of us built and ordered them, rear AC vents never crossed my mind. I saw my Bronco in the same way I saw my old CJ-7, a fun little runabout for 35k that offered a few modern features but was not a luxury or even...
  8. Bronco build quality

    Maybe I’m just lucky, I went with a Big Bend to avoid paying for all the assist systems I hate in my wife’s Acura. So all I have is blind spot warning and back up sensors plus the connected Navigation. After 14 months and 11000 miles I’ve had zero issues, no warning lights, one Air Play glitch...
  9. Brand New Bronco Issues - Dead Battery, Brake System Warnings, and More

    I’d bet you have a bad battery with an internal short or bad cell. The AGM battery in Bronco’s behaves differently than conventional lead acid batteries. Low voltage, even intermittent will trigger all kinds of warnings and goofy electronics behavior, my wife’s GrandcCherokee was possessed...
  10. Addons / mods for engine longevity?

    We have 2 EcoBoost Ford’s, a ‘16 Focus ST and a 2.7 Bronco. The Bronco is only 14 months old so no problems with it. The Focus has 78k hard miles in it as it’s my son’s first car starting when he was 17. Change the oil every 5-6k at the most, only full-synthetic 5w-30. A new air filter every...
  11. Bronco 2.3L sudden death on way home from work! ***UPDATE #2***

    Good point. The Bronco uses an AGM battery, my experience with them in my wife's Jeep GC is that they fail differently than the old Lead Acid battery's. In my case a 4 year old battery was fine, then it wasn't. One day the car was just dead in the garage, no power anywhere. Searching some...
  12. Bronco 2.3L sudden death on way home from work! ***UPDATE #2***

    Mechanical things suffer failures, obviously your situation was very inconvenient and possibly dangerous, but we don't get to pick where and when thing go wrong. The dealer response however is very typical of today's mass market dealers. Once you're out the door with the car, you're just...
  13. My Experience With Ford Mobile Service

    I lived in Cumming up until 2010 and used Billy Howell exclusively for our 3 Ford’s. Mike Kelly was my go to guy there and I was always happy and impressed with the entire service team there. Glad to hear that’s still the case. Moved to Florida in 2010, a small town with one Ford dealer...
  14. New Addons to OBX Build

    Go Noles! Bronc looks outstanding! Black on white is an awesome contrast.
  15. Shaking?

    My ‘23 Sasquatch is smooth as silk at all speeds, on the factory Goodyears and original balance from the factory as well. Sounds like you’ve changed at least tires and rims, I’d suspect a bad tire or bent rim to start with.
  16. Alignment Post Lift

    Most dealers either refuse or require several waivers to work on modified vehicles. They’re really not equipped to understand the myriad of different specs and features of aftermarket components and how they interact with the OEM products they’re trained on. Since you bought the Ford...
  17. Updated Build And Price For 2024s: Charging for almost every paint color now

    Most manufacturers are now charging for colors. The worst is GMC. You get White. Every other color is extra. What was really odd was Chevy didn’t charge extra for colors except a couple if tint coats. Same vehicle made on the same assembly lines by the same people. If it’s a red Chevy, no...
  18. Take a guess as to who is the best rated vehicle for resale in 2024?

    Glad to see that but I’m afraid it may not last long. Ford is now cranking out more Bronco’s than the market is absorbing st present. Ford is now offering 2k rebates on Bronco’s due to the building inventory. That’s a good thing if you’re buying new, but narrows the gap between new and used...
  19. Bronco got broken into last night

    Beware. Your insurance company may not raise your rate but the claim will be logged in the national claims database maintained by LexisNexis. If you go to change insurance companies the new insurer may charge more due to those claims. That’s true of homeowners claims as well. My advice from...
  20. Automatic Vs Manual

    I wanted the V6, auto was the only choice. Very happy with the 10-speed, smooth, a gear for most any situation. I find downshifts to be responsive and quick and upshifts smooth and unobtrusive. I drove a friends manual and it was fine, but knew I wanted the torque and smoothness of the 6...
