My PlanB delivered Monday, JL Unlimited Rubicon Xtreme Recon.
8 weeks from order to delivery! Configuration is way more specific than Bronco ordering.
Received my Badlands order build date for Nov. 15 a couple weeks ago... so the dealer gets some lot stock, reservation holders get the finger...
Canceling the reservations would be a kindness.
The post mortem of the Bronco Reservation debacle will be golden. Ford still sold all the Broncos they could produce, kept focus on the product for a year and a half, took up much of the auto journalism bandwidth and kept anyone interested in...
Ford finally sent VIN on Bronco, reserved 7/13/20, Order/deposit 1/19/21, scheduled production 11/15/21.
Same day Jeep dealer just gave me an ETA for a Rubicon JLU with XR package, ETA at SoCal terminal of 10/12. It was ordered 8/13.
Stellantis 8.5 weeks actual
Ford 45 weeks est. (not...
@gentlemanbronco couldn't be more right.
Terrible photoshop hack. Hood scoop and grill lights not centered, light spread out more than reveal.
Used to be the magazines had quality content and the internet were the hacks. Now magazine based journalists are the least connected, some youtubers...
Mount the Hi-Lift to my garage wall, take out when I need to work on a fence line with a farmer's tool, like it is intended.
... for camp entertainment ask for a Hi-Lift as winch demonstration, hours of fun.
None of the Broncos appear to be registered, no plates. Doubt anyone's auto insurance would cover unregistered vehicle on private trails in a driving event...
It would be a strange claim for damage, could be more for personal injury? Either way there must be a huge blanket policy over the...
Most jeep owners are never exposed to the need for that SFA articulation... ever.
Vast majority of jeeps have no lockers and no need for lockers, yet lockers drastically improve off road capability.
... and without a lift you don't get the great articulation numbers.
... until it becomes so common the buyers switch to a competitor's product... and it is happening.
I don't need to be hit with the same stick I see others being hit with to learn. Ford asking for another 6-12 months with no price protection is Ford's problem.
After riding Ford's Bronco Hype train for a year, taking your reservation to a dealer, agreeing on price just to have dealer help themselves to a big slice of ADM or you're out is well beyond common practice with ordered vehicles.
Adding ADM in this case is outrageous, and definitely impacts...
Manual disconnects are far from easy to disconnect and reconnect especially as the hardware ages.
Lighter tension swaybar is much better or remove it entirely, may require spring upgrade. IFS guys have been doing this for decades.
