  1. Perspective Pic Shows How Wide Bronco Warthog Track Width Is – Approximately 83.3″ Inches!

    I think the warthog will have some sort of factory long travel suspension. The long travel will allow more wheel travel and articulation thus keeping the wheels on the ground over rutted / in even terrain. Also I would think that additional frame strengthening will be on the warthog. I have...
  2. Perspective Pic Shows How Wide Bronco Warthog Track Width Is – Approximately 83.3″ Inches!

    I'm guessing that warthog has some sort of factory long travel kit on it. My 2011 tacoma has a +3.5 long travel kit (total chaos) on it and the overall front track width is right at 84" with my wheel offset and tire size (255/85/16) (tall 33's) with a 4.5" backspacing. The +3.5 means that the...
  3. Imogene Pass - Telluride to Ouray - Put this one on your list!

    I went and did those mentioned above and others a couple months ago. I recommend going during the week to beat the crowds. I have a feeling Black Bear will get closed in a couple years since nearly every year there is some fatality on it. The most recent rollover (no deaths) is a good example...
  4. Everything Badlands: For Positive and VERY Excited future BL Owners!! Plan & Wait...

    Although I agree, I can see people easily breaking a front pinion /ring gear while locked up with them getting too throttle hungry (wheel spin and then suddenly getting traction). With the factory 33's shouldn't be an issue, but I know alot of people will put on 35's and even 37's. Also the...
  5. Everything Badlands: For Positive and VERY Excited future BL Owners!! Plan & Wait...

    I am still debating the BD or Badlands. My monthly pmt between the two is a $100 difference ($6000 overall cost difference) I do off-road alot and the bronco will be the new family off-road vehicle. It will also be the second vehicle in the convoy to my built tacoma. The only reason for the...
  6. How many manual gears available with the 10 speed auto?

    How many gears are available in manual mode? Are all 10?
  7. Lower control arm design issues?

    I am a mech engineer myself and this design seems overlooked. They chose a forged design, so that is why the shock mount is the way it is (a traditional shock tab is impossible into to forge into this design since it is in a different orientation). For those of us who will wheel these broncos...
  8. How many manual gears available with the 10 speed auto?

    How many gears are available when you switch it into manual mode with the 10 spd auto? I have never owned an auto as a primary vehicle, and I use alot of engine braking with my 6spd tacoma . Some autos I have driven in the past seem to be lacking when it comes to switching to manual or 'sport'...
  9. Lower control arm design issues?

    I was just discussing this with a buddy and we think the bolts can be flipped. But now that I think of it, might want to NOT do that. Think of steering rack bolts, you put them in from the top so you can at least still steer if the nuts fall off. This would be the same situation. Wouldn't want...
  10. Lower control arm design issues?

    I know they are testers, but I think the main components (suspension, engine) are finalized. I don't seem them redesigning the lower control arms (think of the entire supply chain building parts now). I saw some exposed shots a while ago and I saw the same two nuts of the lower shock mount...
  11. Lower control arm design issues?

    I recently saw pics of the overland concept. I think the engineers at ford overlooked how the shock is mounted to the lower control arm. The lower shock eye mounts to the control arm via a bolt with machined flat ends. The bolts protrude through the lower control arm!! I can see the nuts getting...
  12. Aftermarket lift for IFS and Sasquatch suspension

    You can lift an IFS, but what do you want to do with your vehicle? If you will truly use it off-road I would look at a long travel kit or just some new coilovers and upper control arms. I have a 2011 tacoma that has a +3.5 long travel kit on it with a spring under kit with 16" bypasses through...
