  1. As much as it pains me to write this, I think that I have finally been pushed too far...

    The one they popped two tires on is the second one they got. No offroad package on that one because it doesn't have the rear locker, only the center locker (if I remember correctly). 19 inch wheels would only give you another .5 inches of sidewall in the factory spec size anyway. Doubt that...
  2. Should I trade my Jeep for the Bronco? – Justin B. McBride

    Let’s be real though. The majority of Jeeps never see a trail either. Nor will Broncos. also, nice on the F Type. Good choice! I just traded my 2017 F Type R. Those cars are legit.
  3. Anyone else buying another vehicle for now and keeping their order active?

    I just picked up a Defender 90 this past Friday. Had a flat tire on the way home but so far no check engine light. LOL. Seriously though, I take all the overly good and bad online items with a grain of salt. Yes, Land Rover has a reputation for unreliability, but if you really look into the...
  4. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    So this was just a discussion with my wife about this very thing yesterday, lol. She was like "how do I adjust the seat and the steering wheel" and I said "it's manual. There is an old school bar under the front." She was like "How much did you pay for this car?" ;) BUT, when I explained why I...
  5. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    I have not measured it, but my guess is about 2 feet. I'm almost exactly 6 feet tall. The top of the roofline is about 6'5". Step in for me is slightly up, as I don't slide perfectly horizontally into the Defender but it's close. I feel more like I'm getting up onto a high top bar stool when I'm...
  6. They just can’t leave good enough alone.

    Yeah, that looks horrible...
  7. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    It is the P400 engine. The inline 6 cylinder. Good power for sure. Sticker on it was 72,395. Dealer added nothing on top that other than taxes and fees, etc. And I got an incredible trade value on my Jaguar right now. They actually gave me about 2k more on trade than I PAID for F Type. So the...
  8. When will I be able to place “the order”

    I did this. Sort of... I picked up my 2022 Defender 90 this past Friday. I say sort of because it wasn't like I canceled my order explicitly to go get a Defender. I canceled my reservation months ago because I really only wanted a painted hard top and everything just kept getting pushed. Fast...
  9. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    Well I got a flat tire on the way home from the dealer thanks to a screw that popped a tire perfectly on the highway, but I won't blame that on Land Rover I guess... lol. So, so far so good. I'm still going to hang around these forums though, because I still love the Bronco and might still have...
  10. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    picked it up today. Here’s a few pics!
  11. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    I see this a lot (and I don't necessarily disagree if you're offroad a lot, especially on rocks) but I have my $.02 counterpoint. lol. Putting bigger wheels on lets you put on bigger brakes, which I'm sure is part of how the Defender gets it's high tow rating. (I know you can get 18's on it...
  12. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    It got there today! I'll have more photos to come. Looking like I will pick it up on Friday!
  13. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    My Defender 90 should be at the dealer this week. Fingers crossed. Mine will be a 2022 Defender 90 X-Dynamic S. Black roof, pano sunroof, cold weather pack, air suspension pack, clear sight mirror, three zone climate control, tow hitch (not the towing package), front undershield, interior...
  14. Manual Take Rate - 25% per Ford Authority

    Pretty sure the current manual transmission isn't rated for enough torque for the 2.7 engine, if I remember correctly. Or it was close enough to be borderline.
  15. The Gentleman's Offroader for Those Who Drink it Shaken Not Stirred

    I would also argue they should know better than to air that 20 inch tire down as far as they did. (I am not saying 20 inch tires are good for off-roading at all. Just saying they aired down to like 18psi if I remember correctly and then that rock pinched the sidewall on that 20 inch rim...
  16. Might be an Unpopular Post......

    Problem around me is finding a dealer with an allocation so you can even put in an order on the Defender. Ford is struggling with production issues right now but Land Rover isn’t exactly filling up lots with Defenders either. Exactly why I jumped on one in transit to a dealer a couple of hours...
  17. Might be an Unpopular Post......

    And I don’t get posts like your response. Just let it go. Don’t respond. I’d argue the Defender is a super capable off roader that happens to be a slightly different approach/market it plays to. I think it’s pretty awesome. I think the Bronco is too. And the Wrangler and the 4Runner for that...
  18. Installed my fold down table today!

    This is awesome. I had a setup similar to this on my old 2 door Wrangler and it got used ALL the time. Great mod. Oh, I had some rattling too on mine, mostly from the pins that held it in place. I put some foam tape around them and they were quiet the rest of the time I had it.
  19. Might be an Unpopular Post......

    I canceled my 2 door badlands reservation last fall and bought a sports car. Figured I'd go do something totally different until Ford got its act together. However, I'm now trading that car in on a 2022 Defender 90 X-Dynamic S trim. Stumbled upon it as an in transit vehicle for a dealer near me...
  20. Ok, Who Are The MN Future Bronco Owners!?

    I jumped on a Defender in transit to a dealer near me. 2022 Defender 90 X-Dynamic S in Tasman Blue. It’s not exactly what I would have ordered as it doesn’t have the off road package, so no rear e locker or off road tires but I can put all terrains on it easily enough, and if I’m honest with...
