    Is having a spare tire on the back rear door simply a styling trend?

    Just watch a Jeep Gladiator video and how their spare does offroad. It hits a lot of stuff. The tailgate swinging out to the curb takes some getting used to. It's easy to smash it into an attached trailer (my neighbor did this to his wrangler). I have a soft top wrangler, so my rear window...

    he's right.....

    I wear N95 masks to protect myself, just like when I'm cutting concrete. If you think it does nothing to prevent particulate or droplets from getting into my respiratory track, I don't know what to tell you. I would agree that the chick-fil-a worker wearing a cloth mask on their chin isn't...

    he's right.....

    When I go between a couple grocery stores and Walmart looking for toilet paper, the last thing I want to do is cross contaminate more by taking the mask on and off and having to clean my hands again and again. You'll see me alone in my car once a week wearing a mask going between my two grocery...

    he's right.....

    It was known in 2015 that GM was working on a mid engine corvette: https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a15107051/exclusive-mid-engine-c8-chevrolet-corvette-first-photos-news/ I quit coming to the forum, because most of the threads are like this one.

    Just a heads up on the 2.3t

    Yes, cold start emissions have driven a lot of design decisions based on the auto suppliers and testers I know.

    Just a heads up on the 2.3t

    Note that the focus RS (2016-2018 US models) used the 2.3T in a transverse application with AWD and was rated at 350/350. It's a lighter, smaller vehicle than a mustang, but not by much. With drivetrain and bottom end upgrades, quite a few folks make over 400whp with them. I considered an RS...

    At least 2 suspension setups coming for Bronco

    Maybe it has changed, but my Rubicon wrangler is not the highest package. It's just a package. My jeep wrangler is a 2015, 2 door rubicon or JKR. It has manual windows, manual locks, manual transmission, keyed ignition, no EVIC (electronic vehicle info center for TPMS etc.), no u-connect...

    NYIAS will be postponed

    NYC has a synagogue of infected people that have spread throughout the city, so I'd say NYC is lost. People like to travel too much and have crappy habits. The issue with COVID-19 is it's very infectious. If it spreads too fast, there will not be enough ventilators for folks that need them...

    2021 Ford Bronco 4 Door and 2 Door Revealed!

    If you're really going to offroad a vehicle, you don't want the fenders painted. That's mall crawler stuff. Redneck pinstripes are a badge to be worn proudly.

    2021 BRONCO 4-DOOR and 2-DOOR FIRST UNCOVERED LEAKED PHOTOS!

    I have a soft top wrangler, and I only put the top down maybe twice a year when it's over 80*F and the kid asks for it. Any idea of security in a soft top wrangler is completely gone once the top's down and doors off. I want a fixed roof wrangler. I'm one of the folks who doesn't want a...

    This better not be in the Bronco

    I don't have a problem with denying warranty coverage for legitimate abuse of a vehicle. If I take my $30,000 car to a drag strip and run it into the wall, I don't expect State Farm to cover the damage. If I melt a piston on the big end or break an axle in the burnout box, that's on me too...

    This better not be in the Bronco

    Alphabet (google) and apple are already doing this to everyone with a smartphone, so why wouldn't the car manufacturers want a piece of the pie? I don't like it either. Free apps aren't free. I'm waiting for the day when all cars have over the air updates that can brick your car in your...

    Everybody thinks the bronco in the Zoolander movie was a jeep, but it's not.

    Spotted: 2021 Bronco VS Jeep Wrangler In The Wild!

    On my 2015 wrangler rubicon (JKR), the rear shock and control arm mount got a piece of shaped and folded 1/4" steel welded to the underside for skidding over ricks near the inside of the tire. The front lower control arms got the same treatment. The front and rear diff covers got changed out...

    I feel like this is a lot of us right now

    Tesla is not for me. I don't want a vehicle I can't work on where an OTA update can brick the car in your driveway resulting in a tow to the nearest service center and loss of the vehicle for two weeks or more.

    Quality control

    I hope so. I still will not buy anything GM, and fiat-chrysler is fiat-chrysler.

    Quality control

    I've posted it here elsewhere, but my 2012 Focus Titanium, 2013 Explorer Limited, and 2015 Mustang GT all had mechanical failures and electronic issues in the first 50,000 miles. Compared to my 2003 Cobra Mustang, 2002 GT Mustang, and 2010 F150, which all had zero issues in the same time frame...

    The IFS vs SFA Thread

    It has a 16,000rpm GSXR750 four cylinder. It would be around 120HP, but the exhaust probably knocks some of the top end off. Here's a youtube video from an old gopro (sound is bad/loud inside case).

    The IFS vs SFA Thread

    I've got a minibuggy I built as a project years ago. I took it to the UP of Michigan in 2012. Other than running around farms for novelty, it hardly gets used anymore. Maybe once a year I fire it up and take it around the block, illegally. Most offroad parks have 15mph speed limits. Guys on...
