  1. How is MIC 2.0 production going for MY22 builds?

    My local dealer told me that the 5 most recent builds that just went to production all have MIC tops. He’s optimistic that, that “means something good.” But who knows…
  2. Distance between jack points?

    I was able to look under one at my local dealer. It seems that's it's essentially moot since the main frame members are exposed from front to back. It doesn't seem that there are exact jack points, as you can place the jacks at any point (within reason obviously) along the members. I was curious...
  3. 2-Door Manual 2.3 Review, Tire Upgrade and VB Stablemates

    Yeah, I can't tell if you're trying to be sarcastic or not...Call it what you want, but it's intended/designed to be driven like a regular 6-speed manual (The gears are labled 1-6 +C unlike in the 911 and the C7 where they are labeled 1-7). You don't use "C" as first. You use first as first. You...
  4. Savagegeese Reviews 2.3 Manual Black Diamond Bronco

    Thanks for posting. But that just pisses me off more that I still don’t have mine! I know it’s a 1st world problem of the spoiled rotten, but…I, I …ok, I’ll try to be more mature and wait patiently ….
  5. 2-Door Manual 2.3 Review, Tire Upgrade and VB Stablemates

    Thank for posting that. One question about your comments on the 7 speed: It’s not really a 7-speed; it’s a standard 6-speed manual with a creeper gear. (The only actual 7-speed manual currently in production is in the Porsche 911). The creeper gear is only used in special ultra-slow off-road...
  6. Spare Rear Tire Delete

    Wow! That looks so much better. I sure wish Ford would just offer a spare delete option. I'm going to delete the ridiculous spare on mine in 2024 when I get my Bronco. But maybe for the MY2024, they will offer a factory delete.... The last time I used a spare was 1997, and I haven't even...
  7. Bad news about MIC 2.0 quality after a few days

    I’m starting to believe that having to wait 3 year to get my Bronco is quite fortunate. Perhaps by then, they will work out the bugs. But, most likely not. I guess we are all enablers: standing in line to give them our money no matter what they produce. There really isn’t any incentive for them...
  8. Distance between jack points?

    Can someone with a 4 door do me a big favor and measure the length between the jack points front-to-back (A) and the width between them side-to-side (B)? Thanks!
  9. Oil Change 2.3L lessons learned

    That’s funny! I‘be always changed my own oil mainly because my time is so valuable. In the time it would take me to drive to the dealer once to drop it off and once to pick it up (time for two people actually unless you get a loaner), I could change the oil on my cars. Plus, I’d much rather do...
  10. Drivetrain Failure in Bronco Badlands 2.3 Back with new engine after 4 months

    My guess is a broken anti-rattle (anti-judder) spring on the clutch plate. It didn’t seem like a release bearing to me. But if you say they replaced the ”clutch” I’m assuming that means the clutch plate, the pressure plate, and the release bearing. They also must have refinished or at least...
  11. 32’s vs 35’s vs 37’s mounted on Bronco Outer Banks with 4" lift

    Thanks for posting that lostxgold. One of those looks pretty darn good to me and two look comical. I won’t say which, or I’ll get yelled at. 😏

  13. "Manual Transmission Could Be Forced Into Retirement"

    Its mainly the lack of demand that is causing the manual to disappear. Electrification will surely be the end. But emergency braking is irrelevant. Different manufacturers already offer emergency braking with manuals. Some have a simple switch that just pressurizes the clutch fluid (to engage...
  14. Direct injection on the 2.3 a big concern for anyone?

    I don’t worry that it will be a problem. It’s caused by motor oil leaking past the intake valve guides and there not being any gas to wash them off since the gas is injected directly into the cylinder. It can be an issue on some DI engines and not on others. With better valve guides (tighter...
  15. What’s everyone’s take on the Bronco Sport

    I like it. If it came with a 6-speed manual, I’d seriously consider it. But no manual = I’m not interested.
  16. Measured: 2021 Bronco Manual Transmission Shifter Throw Length

    Thanks for that information. Those throws are surprisingly short (in a good way). I measured my 3 cars 3rd-4th distance for reference (even though they are completely different vehicles) Mini Clubman S 4 1/2” BMW 435I (with M sport package, which has slightly shorter throws) 4 - 5/8” Porsche...
  17. My Moab Bronco ride review and detailed 33" vs 35" tires ride comparison

    I think that 90% of the people who have a Bronco on order, placed an order because they (I) couldn’t live with the “death wobble” of the Wrangler. Therefore, while we want a off-road worthy vehicle, we also want a true G.O.A.T. vehicle where a paved road is a type of terrain. With few exception...
  18. My Moab Bronco ride review and detailed 33" vs 35" tires ride comparison

    These are all about a year old. If they are all wrong, I'm going to be disappointed. I guess we'll find out more when the actual tests reports start coming in. I just don't see how it's possible that the Bronco will not have adjustable suspension...
  19. My Moab Bronco ride review and detailed 33" vs 35" tires ride comparison

    An off road vehicle needs adjustable suspension way more than a road car. What does GOAT stand for? It can’t possibly to go over any terrain with one suspension setting. Maybe they left off the P. Maybe it’s Go Over Any Terrain Poorly. It’s just not possible for any of the GOAT settings to...
  20. My Moab Bronco ride review and detailed 33" vs 35" tires ride comparison

    Thanks for the write up! I just can’t comprehend how a vehicle like this would not offer magnetorheological shocks. Especially with all the goat modes. That makes zero sense to me. If the goat modes only adjust throttle response and automatic transmission shift points, they are pretty much...
