  1. Door Hinge Dents?

    i am sure most of these test mules were handled much rougher than what a real owner will do. so much of the damage could be attributed to over zealous testers, not someone who just ponied up 30-60k to buy their new ride. and if we see it happening on regular cars, there will be warranty and...
  2. [Updated 7/20] Early Delivered Bronco MIC Top Developing Honeycomb / Snakeskin Pattern

    the difference in weight of a solid fiberglass top could easily exceed a hundred pounds. fiberglass is pretty heavy when you are speaking of a unsupported structure, which you would need to hang windows from (rear) and install side windows requiring the rigidity to keep them from shattering from...
  3. A First Oil Change Experience on 2021 Bronco – Using OEM Oil Filter

    a crescent wrench or a socket work even better than a strap wrench. the strap wrench is great for the steel smooth spin on filters, but much more difficult to uses than a medium sized crescent wrench. when reinstalling the filter housing i recommend hand tight plus a quarter turn..
  4. [Updated 7/20] Early Delivered Bronco MIC Top Developing Honeycomb / Snakeskin Pattern

    the honeycomb structure is actually very strong and light. it was used as a core structure where carbon fiber overlayments were bonded to the honeycomb core. this type structure is used in numerous cowlings, floor panels and rotor blades on military aircraft. the strength and light weight of...
  5. A First Oil Change Experience on 2021 Bronco – Using OEM Oil Filter

    if the new filter element is the same dimensionally it is fine.. different manufacturers use different colored parts, it is the size and filtering efficiency (as in the size of particles removed from the oil). also the use of a crescent wrench on the filter cup might be a better choice, you are...
  6. Two Door Order Updates?

    as the motto of the 4th ID went, Steadfast and Loyal... not always a fan of what happens here, but it is my home... Keep the Faith... as a child i lived in austin for a year or so, so i kind of look at texas as distant relatives...
  7. Two Door Order Updates?

    we are cool with another team in the SEC, LSU needs the competition... by far the most competitive conference in NCAA (mens) football... always was uncomfortable for someone thanking me for doing my job too...
  8. Classic trim option: Am I the only one who...

    you could always look at the base model. if the standard 255/70-16 tire is too small, the 265/75-16 should give you another inch of sidewall.. looking at the tires on my TRD Tacoma, the stock tires are 265/70-16 and measure 31" tall. plenty of size choices in the 16 inch wheel.... this is the...
  9. Bronco 2.3L versus Wrangler 3.6L then faces up against a Ram

    i bet a base with the smaller wheels would have eaten the jeep's lunch. the lower effective gear ratio would have been advantageous in the quarter mile..

  11. Swapping a leather rear center armrest into a MGV rear seat?

    then fabricating an armrest would be a breeze. a padded box with a matching vinyl covering on it with a tail to press into the seam between the seat cushion and back rest or possibly just seat belted into position in the center... simple
  12. Swapping a leather rear center armrest into a MGV rear seat?

    maybe you should just consider going to your local upholstery and trim shop and see what they can do. adding a couple of cupholder into a fold down armrest does not appear to be any huge endeavor...
  13. Warn Front Bumper, Could there be Intercooler Problems?

    the world is full of trade offs. you need to figure out what is the most valuable. the intercooler's efficiency probably will not be effected, since ram effect does not seem tom be part of how the engineers planned the intercooler. if it were, there would be ducts. there is probably plenty...

  15. Word of caution for DIY upgraders. Limited if any replacement OEM parts.

    some times we all bite off a little more than we can chew. consider yourself lucky you did not get far enough that you needed a tow, and a cardboard box..
  16. Shipping Delay(s)

    as far as your tax problem goes. check with your DMV and see if you can register the new vehicle before delivery. if you have the VIN, it should not be a problem. that way you will not lose your tax credit for the taxes paid in your former vehicle. the dealer might require a down payment and a...
  17. Broken front axle at CV joint on my Bronco Badlands 4-Door 2.7L

    if you beak it at moab or rubicon, chances are it is not going to be covered by warranty. that is why there is a huge aftermarket which allows people to build special purpose vehicles for that purpose. go but a c8 corvette bring it up to 7000 rpm and dump the clutch for every start, chances are...
  18. Broken front axle at CV joint on my Bronco Badlands 4-Door 2.7L

    read the owner's manual. it will describe the capabilities and intended uses. if you are looking for a vehicle to participate in the baja 1000, you may be disappointed. read the instructions, don't take advice from someone who you don't know and only has an opinion which may or may not be well...

    Bayou Bronco Club

    not really much production quality in that video. it mostly looked like dealership employees looking. but personally, i think they should have had their prep guy take care of getting it ready and then if employees want to look, let them look. but that video did not scream professionals by any...
  20. Broken front axle at CV joint on my Bronco Badlands 4-Door 2.7L

    if you are in 4wd with lockers engaged, and you have all 4 tires in full contact with the ground without any slip, something has to give. it the tires don't slip, in a turn locked up parts will break. that is why the owner's manual on ANY 4wd says for use on slippery surfaces only. do not drive...
