  1. Spied: possible Bronco mule seen testing in Detroit

    Ox1, I think we agree, I just explained myself poorly. With a properly tuned accelerator, you can get that hard bump just by giving it more throttle instantly. Naturally aspirated Jeeps wheel this way, so does a Land Rover, and Toyota (Land Cruiser is all I've really wheeled). I agree, I'm...
  2. Spied: possible Bronco mule seen testing in Detroit

    I would prefer the manual transmission and naturally aspirated V6 options, for the reasons stated. I'm worried about eco-boost engines and the turbo-lag. Has anyone wheeled a GM in 4low? Everyone of them (save maybe the Hummer H2, but I've on wheeled it for a short time) has horrible throttle...
  3. Spied: possible Bronco mule seen testing in Detroit

    I honestly hope you are correct and I am wrong. I haven't seen the suspension installation at a plant before, I'm just going by what I've heard/been told and could very well be wrong. The difference between the concurrent 2wd and 4wd IFS Ford and the 4wd solid axle F350 is that the 2wd is a...
  4. Spied: possible Bronco mule seen testing in Detroit

    There are significant assembly advantages to IFS vs. solid front, not to mention the ride quality and lack of issues with death wobble. From what I've heard (I've never toured a vehicle assembly line) is that solid axle front suspension installation requires quite a bit of hand work to install...
  5. My take on the Mule Spy Shots (new webisode)

    Sweet! The enthusiasts collective heads are going to explode if a mule is posted with a solid front. That would be shots across the bow to Jeep. It's been ages since the wrangler has had a direct competitor. But even if it's an IFS, I'm very interested (my future overland builds are all...
  6. My take on the Mule Spy Shots (new webisode)

    I honestly wasn't going to do another webisode on the Bronco until the full reveal, but my last two videos have been very successful (for me), and I attribute that to all the awesome folks in this forum. It's really one of the only places I link my videos. Anyway, I've been out of town and...
  7. 2020 Bronco Webcast/Webisode

    That's really a shame it's a 2021 model year when the defender and gladiator will be 2020s. The JL didn't take so long because of design, the JK platform was extended because after the 2011 (or was it 2013?) Mid cycle refresh they started selling at max capacity over 150k units per year. It...
  8. 2020 Bronco Webcast/Webisode

    Thanks! This was actually the first portion of a recording my cousin and I made that was about 2 hours long which we are splitting into 2-5 episodes. My cousin runs a podcast, so he is comfortable behind the microphone, but I still had to figure things out. So I put the Bronco piece off...
  9. 2020 Bronco Webcast/Webisode

    Well, my cousin and I put together a webisode discussing what we could gleaned from the Ford sheet photo and Michael Clark's excellent render. There really isn't anything new that die hard fans don't already know, but we hoped the episode would be more enjoyable than robo-voice slideshows that...
  10. 2020 Bronco Off Road Angles (Approach/Departure)

    Sorry guys, it's been awhile since I've been back at my workhorse computer. As promised, here is Mikes/Road and Track's famous rendering with the dimensions overlayed. I would have loved to have featured this rendering in my video, but I didn't receive any confirmation from Mike or Road and...
  11. 2020 Bronco Off Road Angles (Approach/Departure)

    I agree with that. I also tried to contact Michael Clark if I could use his awesome rendering he did for Road and Track rather than relying on the "sheet" photo. I didn't hear back either way, so I decided to play it safe and just use Ford's released image. But I did scale and run Michael's...
  12. 2020 Bronco Off Road Angles (Approach/Departure)

    Hi guys! I've lurked for awhile, and particularly enjoyed the awesome renders shared on this site. I'm not artistically inclined, but I do have access to some CAD software, so I decided to put the "teaser sheet" photo to scale and try to guess as to what some of the angles are going to be...
