    Manufacturer of Bronco Ford Performance factory lift kit?

    So far there is no factory lift, but who knows who will make it if and when there is. I will be looking at Fox 2.5 coilovers and new UCAs, plus what ever the rear link needs. I good lift won't be cheap regardless of who makes it and a cheap lift isn't worth having.

    Switching out Sasquatch M/Ts with A/Ts?

    Will not be an issue and I see it as a plus. The manual has such a high 6th gear it won't be an issue. Will certainly help with in city driving.

    Just as a bit of advice to everyone on here, don't bankrupt yourself trying to get a Bronco

    Remember, you only do life once. It's a fine line between enjoyment and misery. Your money, spend it how you want, just know you aren't taking any of it with you in the end.

    Switching out Sasquatch M/Ts with A/Ts?

    No regear needed. Speedo may be slightly off, but for me it won't be a concern. I imagine I will go with 285/75/17s after I wear the original tires down, which won't be a huge difference for the speedo.

    Ford briefs dealers on Bronco reservations, allocations, ordering dates, build date estimates

    If you reserved first day, you're fine. If you reserved this month, you're not. Everyone else in between, who knows. Maybe. We're all getting a Bronco, question is when.

    Ford briefs dealers on Bronco reservations, allocations, ordering dates, build date estimates

    My concern is an early time stamp (first night), but I want a mansquatch, which has a delayed production. Will my order go in under the first allocation and be built when it can, or will I be pushed to the rear, even with a very early time stamp. I don’t mind waiting for the mansquatch, but I...

    Deer transportation

    It’s been a long time since I’ve transported a whole animal. A large animal gets quartered for pack out, but deer size game gets quartered where it lays using a gutless method. Everything goes in ice chests in the back. If I had to for a short distance, a hitch carrier would be my preferred method.

    Ford briefs dealers on Bronco reservations, allocations, ordering dates, build date estimates

    Let’s say after the formula is calculated, a dealer has an 80%. When are those 80% to be made? Is it for MY21 or something else? How about the other 20%? I assume Ford wants to fill those as well. Do the remaining 20% have theirs built at a time to be determined later, or do they have their...

    Will big yellow with 2" lift / 37's fit in the garage?

    I have too many as well. My wife’s vehicles and my motorcycles get to sleep indoors, but my vehicles only come in to get worked on. Some are just too tall to fit anyway.

    Ford briefs dealers on Bronco reservations, allocations, ordering dates, build date estimates

    Sounds like people who do convert can be punished because of people who don’t. I reserved in the first hour, but potentially could be punished because several people don’t, which I have no control over. While at another dealership, someone who ordered a month after me could get his order...

    Ford briefs dealers on Bronco reservations, allocations, ordering dates, build date estimates

    The dealer won’t know the allocation until all orders are in? So, my dealer has about 200 reservations. Let’s say he converts 150, but gets an allocation for 100. Fifty people are getting screwed and have no way of knowing until it’s too late. Is this really how it’s going to work? Tell me what...

    Dealer info from 9/25 Meeting

    I’d like to know this too. I reserved within the first hour. I want a VB mansquatch. Will my order go in and hold its place against allocation, or do I possibly get screwed?

    Will big yellow with 2" lift / 37's fit in the garage?

    No. It belongs outside.

    Ford briefs dealers on Bronco reservations, allocations, ordering dates, build date estimates

    You are free to wait until you can, and then wait longer. Many of us are all in. If you catch me out somewhere, you can sit in mine.

    Ford is testing factory 37" inch tires for the Bronco (official teaser) & poll

    Some of these whiners don't even plan on buying a Bronco, so it's just complaining to justify why they don't want a Bronco. Not even sure why they are here. It's great news that Ford is not just stopping with an obviously great product and selling it until it doesn't, then try something new...

    Ford is testing factory 37" inch tires for the Bronco (official teaser) & poll

    Can't wait for details about gearing, axles, etc. This should interest everyone, even if you don't want 37s (or bigger), because it's going to tell you Fords idea of what will work and what won't and what they really think of the standard running gear. I want to know if the standard axles from...

    Ford explains why no manual with 2.7L Bronco

    If you want the manual, there are plenty of reasons you can find to get it. If you don't want the manual, there are plenty of reasons you can find to not get it. My guess is the take rate will be what it was going to be. There are very few people who decide between manual and auto on a whim...

    Rethinking the 2-Door

    Oh, I think we latched on because for many of us, someone's getting shanked if we tried to pull that off. Personally, one is enough for me. I can't imagine more.

    Active and retired military bronco owners!

    Isn't it fun to see yourself in your kids? My son recently got back from Afghanistan doing a tour for SOCOM, and couldn't tell me anything except the funny stuff. There are times when you know you raised them right.
