  1. PSA for 2.7 engine: check belt pulley nut for contact with coolant hose

    Add another data point to the list. FE, so 2.7 engine. This all happened earlier today (Friday): Literally drove it off the lot, after about a mile or so, stopped at a red light - there's that sweet burning odor. (I had not focused on any of the coolant threads in the forum so there was nothing...
  2. Updated: Resolved!! So, my bronco arrived and the dealer tried marking it up $10K ADM

    I get that. I recent bought a shooting brake that has been in very limited supply and had a similar experience. They had one of these hard to find things on the floor and said there would be ADM reflecting vehicle scarcity. I went to the dealership prepared to offer MSRP to buy it immediately...
  3. Resolution on DCH Ford ADM issue

    Just to make it abundantly clear that the OP had nothing whatsoever to do with that
  4. Updated: Resolved!! So, my bronco arrived and the dealer tried marking it up $10K ADM

    I agree they won't last forever, but I'm seeing this kind of pricing stay surprisingly persistent on desirable items for really long periods of time. The whole world has been turned upside down by these supply chain issues, which I can't talk about with any specificity because my post will be...
  5. Update-Situation fixed-So my Bronco has come in.... & marked up 10k by DCH FORD OF EATONTOWN

    That to me is a very slippery answer. "The customer you are referring to did not have a signed buyer's order." Well why not? He paid you a deposit as if he had an order, didn't he? I can't help but suspecting that these dealers gulled some of their customers into thinking they'd done everything...
  6. My First Edition Bronco Finally Arrived....DAMAGED! 😤

    This is sickening not only because its so horrible to have the truck treated so badly when you've anticipated it for so long - but also because who knows if this is the only damage? If you are contemplating taking it, if I were in that situation I would get with the dealer and a mechanic and go...
  7. Update-Situation fixed-So my Bronco has come in.... & marked up 10k by DCH FORD OF EATONTOWN

    Just as some additional data and perspective n the current situation, numerous folks on a local message board (San Diego area) are complaining that dealers are generally stickering everything on the lot (new and used) with an across-the-board $2500 markup. (This is not Ford or Bronco specific...
  8. XPEL Stealth Satin PPF wrapped my Carbonized Gray Badlands Bronco

    Yeah but keep in mind these wraps do not last forever. Eventually they start to peel back at some of the edges, usually the more complicated bits go first. Also if you live in extreme climate (say, Phoenix) and the car is out a lot you might see some cracking and yellowing from that. So yeah...
  9. The insanity of the manual trans Sasquatch pricing

    I think it's actually kind of the opposite generally for manuals (not specific to Bronco). The rate of uptake for manuals is miniscule. So the cost to make them, stock parts for them and warranty them has to be amortized over a small population of cars. But you are right, people who want...
  10. I BROKE-IN my brand new BRONCO at Moab!!

    Simply awesome. To see a full size vehicle executing those super technical Moab obstacles just makes you stop and appreciate the engineers who conceive and build these things. And to see that after such a long wait is like a cold glass of water after a year in the desert. I look forward to...
  11. Mike Levine saying outright he does NOT care about Granger/Chapman/SAC

    I'm not sure I get what the fuss is about. I have no issue with a small rural dealer wanting to use the internet to compete with larger dealers. That's one of the great things about the internet - you can reach anyone anywhere if you have a compelling business proposition. The problem is, they...
  12. How emotional will you be at delivery?

    If I do start to slip into emotion, I'll snap right out of it when the "Finance Manager" buttonholes me for the requisite 90 minute torture session. "I'm paying cash." "I know, this will just take 5 minutes."
  13. Emotional journey has ended

    your son must think he's got the coolest Dad on the planet. Best of luck with your gorgeous Bronco!
  14. Found our Bronco!

    Like the song says, "Dirt Mountain I will no longer stand in line / Dirt Mountain I have come to take what's mine!" :)
  15. Upgrades! Areoskin hood protector, rocket antenna, heritage fender badge

    It is dead standard behavior on forums involving valuable and desirable things to delete specific identifying details when posting pictures. On cars, the tags. On watches, the serial number that is often visible on photos of the back of the watch. And so on. Nothing weird about it whatsoever...
  16. New shoes - 20x9.5 -18mm black rhino raid with 325/60r20 Nitto Ridge Grappler

    Those wheels are amazing. Really transform the look of the truck, super upscale vibe. Good job.
  17. 2022 Bronco Price Protection Announced

    Arguing is fine (at least with me). That's how you learn new things. This point is where I think we differ. When you say that this "means that the 2021 agreement gets cancelled," is there a specific provision of the contract you are referring to that gives the dealer the right to cancel? I...
  18. 2022 Bronco Price Protection Announced

    Technically you are right, its only a credit for the difference in MSRP of the particular Bronco you ordered for the 2021 MY. It doesn't protect you from ADM any more than it protects you from the dealer deciding to, say, double the prices on its service/maintenance schedule for you. But if you...
  19. 2022 Bronco Price Protection Announced

    If getting 21 price protection on that 22 Badlands means getting f***ed, then yes, yes you are.
