  1. Bronco vs XJ

    It's hilarious how many people will defend the stock cooling system on those calling it adequate... and it's mostly people in places it never hits 100... meanwhile in Phoenix in 115F+ stop and go traffic those 4.0s are like the Fukushima reactor... That's one thing I've always loved about my...
  2. Bronco vs XJ

    One of the XJ's advantage, due to the lack of frame, is that its belly sits way higher than a wrangler (and I'd wager probably a bronco as well). Not to mention the corners have rusted/been cut off/fallen off of most of them by now, so in an approach/breakover/departure angle situation, its...
  3. Exclusive 6+ Minutes of Bronco Badlands Rock Crawling Action on Rubicon Trail

    Nope. Seeing in the 1st vid that wheel droop a whole 3-4 inches from its normal ride height when fully suspended in the air made me cringe... Basing this on the tire sidewall being 8" (33-17 = 16 / 2 = 8), and having roughly that same space at full droop between the top of the tire and wheel...
  4. Am I the only one that thinks Bronco would have competed the FJ Cruiser?

    To keep informed on the latest and greatest comfortable good handling mall crawlers. I'm a Ford guy with 4 fords and 1 jeep... was hoping to make it 5 fords but doesn't look like it'll happen.
  5. Am I the only one that thinks Bronco would have competed the FJ Cruiser?

    With what swaps? If you listen to this board, it's amazing that they didn't crash on the way to the trail due to the terrible handling, death wobble, and the sheer threat of death on every corner... :D Those are probablyt he most lifted FJs I've seen... and yeah, they look badass :D
  6. When will Bronco become a real threat to Jeep?

    It's even an option on the 4 door sport. with the diesel and auto tranny, it's right under 40k... and coming soon to the gladiator. A 4 cyl diesel bronco would be cool, but don't think Ford has any of them capable of passing our emissions - maybe steal one from europe and try to make it pass...
  7. Does anyone have payload and towing capacities for the different trim levels of the new bronco?

    Wheelbase has probably more to do with it than suspension up to a certain point... Raptor is still somewhat respectable, though still lower than the equivalent crew cab 3.5EB F150. But the F150 does have a big wheelbase advantage on the bronco... Again, what's good for towing (longer...
  8. Jeep Death Wobble Reported on New Wrangler

    It's a byproduct of solid axles and mostly coil sprung ones (have yet to hear of older leaf sprung axles doing it). Usually caused by a worn out or out of spec component or bad geometry (aka lifted improperly). Can get triggered by all kinds of events, hitting a certain speed, tires out of...
  9. Does the Bronco stand a chance against the 4Runners reputation

    It's usually the corolla or camry owners that are like that. You have probably the most fun 'yota made in the past 15 years... The rest of their lineup is really as exciting as swimming in wallpaper paste.
  10. Am I the only one that thinks Bronco would have competed the FJ Cruiser?

    Bronco had a removable top before, what killed it then?
  11. Am I the only one that thinks Bronco would have competed the FJ Cruiser?

    IFS is the reason they never got lifted and never looked cool in the mall parking lot. IFS is the reason they never got the image of the wrangler....
  12. When will Bronco become a real threat to Jeep?

    My XJ takes like 3 freeway exits to hit 70 on asphalt... Not sure I'd go over whoops in it :D lol. The canam would be great for it though..
  13. Am I the only one that thinks Bronco would have competed the FJ Cruiser?

    Yep, I've said it in many posts and caught hell for it... FJ came back with an IFS to take on the wrangler. No one lifted em much, and they never took off... one generation and done.
  14. V8 Jeep Wrangler production prototype spied testing

    Shh, you gonna get that moderator warning too... He doesn't like being proven wrong.
  15. Motor Trend On Jeep vs Bronco

    In both articles they pulled some stuff out of their ass to get to "10"... lol. The jeep mirrors vs the bronco topless view... The size of the screen in the dash and the number of cameras... *yawn* They would have been better off doing an article on maybe top 3 or top 5 in each case. The...
  16. V8 Jeep Wrangler production prototype spied testing

    Lol, this is getting out of hand. You "goofed a bit"... ok. And wow that 2.7 is made of magic compared to the 3.5 - same 60 degree v6 but with a 0.14" smaller stroke it manages to drop 4 inches in height in your "guesstimates". 0.37" smaller bore and it manages to drop 6.5" in width... and it...
  17. When will Bronco become a real threat to Jeep?

    I have well over 100 grand worth of Fords, and a 3000 dollar XJ... I'm definitely working for FCA, lmao. It must really hurt your feelers to realize Ford dropped the ball and made an overhyped mall crawler. Let me know when you get yours, post up some pics of that awesome 3-4 inches of flex :D
  18. Electric HUMMER EV vs. Bronco

    It's GM. The new hummer will probably be either another tahoe or another front wheel drive crossover.
