  1. Broncos stored as far as one can see @ Wayne, MI 🔭

    Oh, that's comforting. The government is here to help.
  2. 2022 Ford Bronco changes?

    There was no mention of "quick" release. I can see the desire for a "clean" cargo area with no obnoxious mounts left sticking up out of the floor or from the sides to interfere with whatever you want to load it up with. I'm disappointed learning that this is an issue, the Fords I've owned...
  3. Death to the Bronco Sport

    I'll probably get a Sport. I need a small parts-fetcher that's simple to park, gets okay economy, has forced induction for operation at altitude, and will do okay in the snow. The only real rivals are Crosstrek, RAV4, or CR-V, none of which have forced induction, and are underpowered, bigger...
  4. Good bye bronco

    A man's got to know his limitations.
  5. Be careful out there.

    I would continue to drive that thing as is. "Think your Rubicon is tough? You should come wheeling with us sometime."
  6. Would you and your family sell everything and live the Nomad life in your Bronco?

    The 7.3 Excursion cost me $9k, and curiously, it gets better highway mileage than a loaded BadSquatch. 60 months of 2.9% financing on a high-optioned BadSquatch is over $1000 a month - add in the insurance, it's rather spendy before even considering fuel economy. Fun fact: in 2002, the 7.3...
  7. Would you and your family sell everything and live the Nomad life in your Bronco?

    Kinda already did that a couple times, briefly - once when I was 17 in my '73 Bronco and again after retirement in a pickup truck. As much as I valued the travel, it is nice to have a real toilet, a real shower, a reliable place to do laundry, and vehicle maintenance/projects. My perfect world...
  8. Who has the worst car being replaced by a Bronco?

    You won't be sorry with the CR-V. '02 was the best year, and my '98 has 226k hard miles - still going.
  9. Rock Crawling - Please Help Me Understand the Appeal

    It's a skills test, with consequences. Your skills and your machine against the terrain. A show and shine at Starbuck's is only so satisfying, anyone can sign a loan agreement and show up with something pretty for everyone to look at. If a bird craps on your hood, the feeling of defeat must...
  10. Bronco fatigue

    I'm sure Ford can empathize with your deprivation. First the UAW spills the beans on a new model a year ahead of your intended PR release, then a global pandemic that halts the assembly of your production line (not to mention the work stoppages of the third-party OEM parts providers) spoils...
  11. Broncos in AZ (no photos)

    I know. I debated even posting, but I did at least apply a disclaimer in the title. I was hoping maybe someone else had seen them and grabbed something. There were lots of tourists in Jerome walking the street, if any of them were Bronco people they would have had ample opportunity to get...
  12. Broncos in AZ (no photos)

    Nice. Not that I really saw anything of note. Didn't think I'd ever see a camo'ed manufacturer vehicle around here, much less the subject of my lust. I feel like that dude from Penthouse letters, "Things like this usually don't happen to me, but..." After looking at the 2023 Ranger spy shots...
  13. Broncos in AZ (no photos)

    Headed east-ish toward Cottonwood, which would take them to Sedona or I-17, where they could go to Flagstaff/I-40 to the north, or Phoenix/I-10 to the south. Pics - yeah, I know. If you knew the road to Jerome, you'd understand, though. ;) Warthog or Heritage - they were beefy and big, no...
  14. Broncos in AZ (no photos)

    As I was going up the hill to Jerome from Cottonwood today, I saw three heavily cladded and camo'ed Broncos and what appeared to be a full-size pickup in camo (but a lesser level) all in a row coming down out of Jerome. A few minutes later, while actually in town in Jerome, I saw a fourth...
  15. 2028 Honda Ridgeline renderings are just stupid

    2028 Honda Ridgeline renderings are just stupid Yes, they are. Thanks for bringing it to our attention, so we can dedicate 12 pages and hours of lost productive time to getting panties in a wad about something that is a hair's breadth from being a hoax.
  16. FJ Cruiser Owner: Will Bronco be similar quality?

    Do you have a reliable source on this? I saw two articles of dubious origin (an Australian truck service body manufacturer's website, and "motorbuiscuit.com", in an article that is either a cut-and-paste from the previous source or vice-versa) that say they were "banned by NHTSA". I looked on...
  17. I still remember Ford took no 2008 bailout and I will finally reward them...

    Yep. My elderly neighbor had an '07 Impala that wore out rear tires about every 4000 miles. It was a known defect that GM quietly took care of on law enforcement vehicles. But the regular folks? "Oh, that was 'Old GM'. Not our responsibility". That's a fine thank-you for the bailout...
  18. I still remember Ford took no 2008 bailout and I will finally reward them...

    Another facet of GM's bankruptcy that Ford didn't profit from is the liability reduction - GM was legally absolved of virtually all litigation-based liabilities when they woke up the day after bankruptcy was complete. Same people, same facilities, same products... but *poof*: sorry suckers, if...
  19. Accessories HURT$$$

    I don't see it as packing things where the sun don't shine. It's a huge convenience to offer aftermarket stuff installed at the dealer and be able to roll it in to the loan. One stop shopping has a value to people who don't have the time, patience, or other resources to go another route. And...
