  1. What Will You Buy That Tows More Than 3500, Instead?

    A 5k tow cap is nowhere near a great towing vehicle, so not asking to have an off roader with great towing ability. Just asking it to be decent.
  2. What Will You Buy That Tows More Than 3500, Instead?

    Been trying to decide exactly this for awhile now. Love the bronco, but likely won’t be getting one unless they up the tow cap. Before the bronco I was considering the gladiator, and now that broncos basically out for me the gladiators back on the considerations, but that one has some drawbacks...
  3. GM says the Silverado/GMC are now outselling the F150!

    I def wouldn’t compare Mazda/ford to gmc/chevy. Mazda and ford are separate companies just combining for a vehicle to sell under each, like fiat and Mazda with the spyder/Miata or bmw and Toyota with the Z4/Supra or Toyota and Subaru with the BRZ/FRS/GT86. Those are all the same vehicles under...
  4. Towing Package question

    Yea my current one sits even closer than that I think, almost no shank shows between the hitch and the bumper , that’s why I said depends on the brand. But it’s still usually a bit further than a standard hitch. Not sure what brands my 2 brother-in-laws have, but they both stick out a whole lot...
  5. Difference between Black Diamond and Badlands

    I have yet to see a soft top for the 2 door so guessing it would mean no dual tops on 2 door
  6. Towing Package question

    No worries, you can make it work ;) On a bit more serious note, it’ll really depend on brand of hitch, some stick out further than others. And they do make hitch extension pieces that add another like 4-6in coming out. Weight distribution hitches tend to stick a bit further out, least the ones...
  7. Difference between Black Diamond and Badlands

    Looks like the biggest difference on a few bronco trims is just paying for the ability to pay for more stuff. If you want all the new tech you gotta get higher trim before you can option it. I mean base bronco is basically just lack of ability to add any factory packages except Sasquatch. Black...
  8. Jeep is trying to add half doors now

    Jeeps with half doors ain’t a new thing, OEM or aftermarket. The biggest difference is the bronco doors are designed to be frameless so don’t need to get a second door and no need to carry a soft half door top piece to seal it up, just roll up the window. So unless they’re redesigning the...
  9. Towing Package question

    Curt is the only manufacturer page I’ve seen that flat out says class 2 is a 1-1/4 hitch receiver. Every other brand I’ve seen says class 2 hitch is “usually” 1-1/4in square receiver. That usually being the operative word, it doesn’t have to be, and having a 2in doesn’t automatically make it...
  10. Think Ford would let me order Black Diamond and just switch the headlamps and taillamps to the L.E.D versions?

    That just means ain’t plug and play right from ford, doesn’t mean you can’t do it. And if you can’t figure the wiring on your own I’m sure there will be some company selling a pigtail to make it plug and play real soon. Seen that on many many vehicles to swap lights or even just to change the...
  11. GM says the Silverado/GMC are now outselling the F150!

    The 10 speed in the Silverado(and Sierra and like 10 other GM vehicles) is basically the same transmission the Broncos getting(and in about 10 other fords). Ford and GM developed them together. And the diesel Silverado’s and Sierras get an Allison transmission, I’ve never heard anybody say...
  12. Fully Loaded Badlands at purchase vs. Base model with after market stuff ($55,000 budget) What would you do and Why?

    It’s marine grade, splash some cool water on it to cool it off, then wipe it dry with a towel and it’s cooled off a lot faster than a cloth seat that’s soaked up heat. ;) And won’t absorb and hold your sweat like a sponge. The bigger benefit for cloth is not sticking to the seat. Which is the...
  13. Is it safe to say the Bronco will be better than the Wrangler ON the road?

    Depends where you are. If you’re at a Jeep rally with a bunch of drunk Jeep owners it might not be safe to say that, someone there might take them as fightin’ words. ;)
  14. Front axle option on Black Diamond?

    Everything below badlands has the m190 front axle standard with m210 available, badlands and up the m210 standard. And no it’s not part of the squatch package. As for price, no idea til build and price I guess...
  15. Towing Package question

    Yea that same article has been posted in another towing thread on here, and at the risk of sounding repetitive I’ll summarize my responses from that. For the most part nobody’s expecting or wanting gladiators tow cap, and most of the struggles the gladiator faces shouldn’t be issues in the...
  16. Towing Package question

    The ranger has 16 in rims and 7500lb tow cap. Raptor has 17in rims, 34in tires and 8000lb tow cap. So ford has brakes that’ll work for well over what most want the bronco capabilities to be increased to, and being the bronco is based on the ranger it may have just been assumed by many it would...
  17. Buying with a Credit Card

    I’ve bought my last 2 vehicles(one car one motorcycle) on my credit card to get points/miles. I def wouldn’t recommend doing it if you don’t plan to pay it off right away, but if you’re planning to purchase outright and not get any sort of loan(so have the full amount in your bank account) then...
  18. Removeable Roll Cage

    Pretty certain my camaro convertible has no such roll bar feature(don’t think the brand new ones do either). And know of many many convertibles that are no where near being “classic” without any kinda of roll bar or roll over features. But again, where is the legality to that? Just because they...
  19. Removeable Roll Cage

    If it was illegal to not have a roll cage wouldn’t every convertible vehicle have one? Not sure what would be illegal about it, just inadvisable to always run without it. As for removing the one on the bronco, it’s got the airbag in the roll bar so that’s a major complication to that.
  20. Manual or Automatic Bronco? Give me your input

    My opinion on the subject of resale value - not driving a car to keep miles off it for resale is like not banging your girl to keep it fresh for the next guy. Keeping with that analogy, not buying the manual because of resale value is like only doing cowgirl style even though you prefer it...
