  1. Base SAS vs Black Diamond SAS

    This was my exact dilemma for a long time. Started out as Base/2.7/Sq. Truly the best value for offroading as mechanically it’s a Wildtrak, and has all the capability of Badlands Sq if you don’t mind manually disconnecting your swaybar. However, I started looking at the MGV and washout floors...
  2. HELP! What to do: Damaged Windshield when Delivered to Dealer?

    Dealer’s responsibility to replace. Vehicle isn’t even yours yet. They’ll replace it, nothing to be worried about. Some of the JK/JL guys go through a windshield per year. If you walk because they need to replace the windshield I highly doubt they’ll cut you in line for a new build. It’s an...
  3. MIC Top edges examined

    Kinda like when you completely forgot to do your homework until 9 minutes prior to class so you just write some nonsensical shit on a piece of paper and hand it in. You and the teacher both know it’s crap, but you hand it in anyway because that’s all you’ve got. That’s MIC tops right now
  4. What is the best way (not cheapest way) to lift your Bronco?

    There are a few very good companies that design lift kits. They will not be first to market. In fact they’ll probably be some of the last to market. To do 37’s right you’ll need all the bracketry outlined in Maverick Man’s post, though you’ll probably be buying this in a kit that is pre-fabbed...
  5. Anyone wish Ford kept a traditional tailgate design? Think they will bring it back?

    Only thing in this arena I wish it had was roll up rear glass. That would be really neat.
  6. Bronco New Reservation Order Timeline for No-Frills Broncos

    Regarding allocation etc, what others have said is correct. One point to add is that 4D soft top Big Bend is the most available spec commodity wise, not the 4D base. Reason being is that BB shares more common parts with all the other trims than the base model, at least from what I can tell. So...
  7. Allocations Question

    Priority may push you back 2-3 spots AT MOST. Some dealers didn’t even get priority spots and most got 1. Unless you’re at a huge dealer they probably didn’t get 3 priority slots. It’s really not as big of an issue as some of the alarmists here want you to believe. Your biggest problem is...
  8. Dealer mark ups!?!?

    “We have the largest reach on the east coast”. Lmao sounds like a murderer threatening to find you wherever you hide. Get a new dealer and a signed agreement stating purchase price. Plenty of no ADM dealers out there.
  9. First day with my first edition

    LB is such a good color. If Ford never offers LB on another Bronco these ones will be worth big money in 100 years when we’re all flying around in Tesla branded spaceships
  10. Putting 37s on my sas badlands questions?

    Get real 35’s and see how you like the look then, esp if you go a hair wider in addition to an extra .5-1 inch in diameter. SQ tires are I believe 34.4 or 34.2 which makes a big difference in the look. To do 37’s correctly it would be about 10k. You’d need to do control arms, shocks, springs and...
  11. Sway bar disconnect questions, non BL or FE

    The Rubi lockers can be wired directly to the wrangler aux switches. If that were possible with the disconnect, would be simple to do on a non Badlands/FE. Unfortunately, it goes to the PCM which is where the issue lies.
  12. Sway bar disconnect questions, non BL or FE

    Getting the swaybar disconnect unit to talk to the PCM is the consensus reason why the swap isn’t feasible. Not to say that it can’t be done, but would likely be more trouble than it’s worth. Would require full access to the computer, which mfg’s are making more and more difficult with each...
  13. Drag Race by TFL: Bronco First Edition 2.7L vs. Jeep Wrangler 4XE vs. Toyota FJ

    Was the Bronco in sport mode? Not sure if FE’s have that or not. On boosted vehicles especially the modes can change the way and time in which power is delivered. Specifically, it may ramp up boost earlier in the rev range, or just deliver the full amount of boost period. Not sure on the Bronco...
  14. am i the only who feels this way? help a brother out

    Believe Ford is selling them in Saudi
  15. Here starts the dealer games

    Except you missed the part about how in subsequent years your Bronco allocation is based on how many Broncos you sold in year one. Year one allocations based 50% res, 25% Ford sales in the region and 25% competitor vehicle sales in the region (may be slightly off on this). Subsequent years are a...
  16. What do you use to protect against rust and corrosion

    As others have said, fluid film is really the best option. However keep in mind you should reapply it once a year. It’s like any other protective coating you’ll need to maintain it. Jury is still out on whether or not you should strip the old layer before you reapply. Some don’t want road salt...
  17. *UPDATE* What NOT TO DO when reinstalling doors. PSA: put a bolt in first or risk dent

    Clean up the jagged edges and hit it with some touch up paint. The point being that touch up paint is to protect the surface. Not to make things look like new. Alternative is take it to a body shop, they might be able to get it 90% of the way back to brand new. Issue is that the bending...
  18. Here starts the dealer games

    Can’t wait for the death of the dealership model. I know there are a few good dealers out there, and I know it’s their livelihood and careers, but the bad dealers FAR outweigh the good ones. Yeah the guy who got screwed should have confirmed price in a written document, but only a very small...
  19. Same same but different… Rivian R1S

    If I were forced to buy an EV this would be it. Not the same application at all as the Bronco, but I think they’re cool as hell. Not everyone’s taste. In fact it may be a small minority’s taste, but I think they look good. The weirdness makes it look cool. I intend to keep an ICE stable for the...
  20. Tuning of 2.7L Looks to be Limited

    Does anyone know if they switched to the 10R60 mid stream, or if that was the transmission all along but they mistakenly were calling it the 10R80 for the first 8 months of launch? Even though most vehicles spend very little time at their max tq output, seems odd that they wouldn’t build in...
