  1. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    Even Levine is liking the Defender.... :ROFLMAO:
  2. Someone f#$%ing hit my Bronco!

    Sorry this happened! I had something similar but not as bad happen to me - someone scuffed the bumper of my 1 day old new vehicle. Less than a week later some jerk with a stroller or bike put three paint chips in the rear passenger door of the same vehicle - ended up being the only damage in...
  3. Bronco delivery in Northern VA and Washington, D.C.

    I saw a cyber orange one a while back on Hunter Mill Rd (Vienna / Reston area), and then just last weekend I saw a 4-door A51 Outer Banks with an MIC top in Sterling. Other than that, the only one I've seen is the demo Wildtrak (soft top) that Koons Sterling has (or had?).
  4. More Bronco Swag Incoming from Ten10 Design

    I get that for sure! My Badlands order was 4-door and loaded, so the price difference was less, and I managed to snag one without ADM (just in time). I wish I could afford one of each. 😁
  5. More Bronco Swag Incoming from Ten10 Design

    Some of us already have a pair of those. ;) 😁
  6. Update-Situation fixed-So my Bronco has come in.... & marked up 10k by DCH FORD OF EATONTOWN

    Even with a $5k adm on a Defender (current offering from the dealer I used), with $10k on a Bronco, you're getting mighty close in price. Also worth noting I had nothing official in writing and they stuck to the original price quoted, since we agreed to it before they added the adm. At least...
  7. Jumping Ship? - What's Your Plan B Vehicle Purchase?

    I'm glad I jumped ship after seeing how things have been going (or not). Still love the Bronco but I've been happily driving my Defender for the past month and not feeling annoyed / angry about not getting my Bronco. Really enjoying the new ride, so far. In the end, I finally got a December 6th...
  8. Koons Baltimore - Wow

    No, I'm sure they mean it. Regardless of which location you're dealing with, Koons is straight-up the worst, at least as far as their sales team.
  9. ⏱ Bronco Scheduling This Week (of 9/27) For REST OF MY21

    My dealer messaged me today to tell me my Bronco was previewing. Badlands, 4-door, lux, 2.7, MIC, tow. Early morning after reveal reservation. It was actually supposed to be a 99'd order since I purchased a Defender in the meantime. No big deal for me - if they want they can sell it if they...
  10. New tundra to be shown halftime Sunday night football

    What's with that grille? It's like they used the goatse guy as inspiration (if you don't get the reference, please don't Google that, DOUBLY SO while at work. No, I'm not joking about that.).
  11. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    For my D110 P400SE, it's about 23" from the ground to the "Defender" step plate when in normal height. I think access mode drops it no more than 1-2 inches.
  12. Anyone know of a garage height warning sensor?

    This is tough because while the "obvious" solution is a laser bouncing off a reflector at garage door height, unless you have an extended overhang to mount it to, or mount it on arms extending away from the garage (may look... funny), you won't get enough warning before impact. The other...
  13. Not so "Xtreme" Recon Rubicon first delivery.

    Those are "larger brakes"? :unsure: They look small to me.
  14. Who's ready to tap out?

    That's about where mine came out. Defender 110 P400SE, off-road and advanced off-road was the primary build / options. I got lucky with the dealer I used. They weren't local, but they took no deposit (at the time, they said it would be easier if there was a long delay as far as me being able to...
  15. Who's ready to tap out?

    I paid MSRP. Dealer fee was only $75, and considering the vehicle, demand, and chip shortages, I thought that was totally acceptable. Was about $16k over my Badlands build, which is pricey but it's no $80k+ Defender. Still, it comes with so many nice features standard, it feels well worth it...
  16. Who's ready to tap out?

    I managed to actually get my Defender on Friday. It seems the trick is getting lucky with a dealership that has unspoken-for allocations that can be customized (and also not ordering a model that has tail light issues, I guess). I have to say, between the 5-ish hour drive home and some other...
  17. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    So, I only have two pictures to add today (by request), and it's the quick shot I took right before I drove away from the dealership, and one in the driveway. This morning we loaded up the dogs for a planned ride out near Shenandoah (Skyline drive, possibly), and the second we left it started...
  18. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    Thank you! I really kind of hope Ford moves forward with a "lux" Bronco. Give me tech and a really nice interior, but keep the rubber floor. I haven't managed to test drive a Bronco. The closest I've gotten is sitting in one (coincidentally, the Defender in "normal" ride height feels like a...
  19. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    It's a Defender 110 p400 se, to be specific. I added the off road and advanced off road packs (includes air suspension), heated and cooled seats, ClearSight rear view mirror, adaptive cruise, and white contrast top. Comes in about $16k over my Badlands build, but it also has far more features...
  20. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    Well, it happened. June 20 order, late August delivery, and I drove it home yesterday. Still have my 99'd Bronco order, but after a five hour drive home, I'm very happy with the Defender, and since I never had plans to rock crawl (and I'm not dumb enough to try to rock crawl on aired down 20's)...
