  3. Hard Top + Roof Rack = Tornado Wind Noise

    Ok I'm going to keep this quick - Ive had my 4dr 2.3 MT Badlands with the MIC hard top and roof rack for about 3500 miles now and I can say without a doubt the wind noise in this truck is as loud or louder than anything I've ever taken on the highway (including a soft top 1969 GTO). I test...
  4. Has Ford Stopped Updating The "Reservations and Order" Tab Under "My Account" on ford.com?

    Ford's website is still showing my Bronco as not yet built or shipped: But... my Bronco is built and did ship and I took delivery of it on Saturday (paid MSRP, as promised by the dealer):

  6. I Really Like the 7MT

    …like really, really like it. The clutch is smooth and lightweight but that really didn't matter much with the crawler gear in 4L since you can nearly come to a standstill without killing the engine. But if you do manage to stall, it restarts immediately once you disengage the clutch. I just...
  7. Excess clutch grease

    Anyone else getting grease from the clutch spring on your shoes?
  8. Manual Transmission on the 6 cylinder engine

    There’s a lot of talk about Ford listening to the consumers. If you want a manual transmission for the bigger engine, let your voice be heard!

  10. Manual transmission vs shorter driver

    Hi, I am looking to order a manual 2 doors Big Bend Bronco but I am on the fence with the transmission. I wanted the manual 7 speed, but reading the review in car and driver about shorter people banging their knee and hard to reach pedal makes me wonder. My wife is 5'1 link to car and driver ...
  11. My Base Bronco Suspension vs Potholes! With Crawler Gear Action

    Did a full video with my daughter while going off road (off Hines Drive). I use crawler gear in several situations including up and down a steep (for me) berm, down a dirt road and through dozens of potholes. It is so fun! ... and yes, she knows how to drive a Manual Transmission. Also I...
  12. [Poll] How stupid am I for clinging on to hope of a future 2.7 V6 / 7MT Bronco?

    Well guys, a year after being told "no" to this option combination, I'm still here daydreaming about it. I'd like to know if there is anyone else holding on to hope for this to happen in the future? @Ford Motor Company
  13. Not Mansquatch… womp

    Got a call from my dealer that they just got their demo model in and it happened to be the manual 4 door badlands. When I got there I noticed it looked taller than I expected since I was expecting the 33s that come stock on the Badlands. For some reason this 21 model is a manual w/Sasquatch...
  14. The Base 2-Door Bronco is a Price Hack (I made a video!)

    I reserved on July 14 2020 (early morning) and I expect my Bronco to built on July 12, 2021. I decided to share a video to share my thoughts... In the video, I will tell you why the 2021 Base Bronco 2-Door is a price hack and a fantastic deal relative to the Jeep Wrangler, the 4-Door, and to...
  15. Bronco Event at Team Ford in Las Vegas

    So great to finally see them in real life! And totally lucked out that they had a 2.3L manual BD which is my build (minus the 2 extra doors). The team that runs the event were awesome and let you crawl all over and in the vehicles. The MVG seats were super comfortable and the exterior and...
  16. Measured: 2021 Bronco Manual Transmission Shifter Throw Length

    Hello all! I went to my local dealer's bronco event yesterday with one main goal in mind: measure the manual transmission throw length! For reference, I daily drive a manual 2018 Corvette Z06, and my wife drives a manual 2020 Mustang GT. Here were the results I found: 2018 Corvette Z06...
  17. Sasquatching my Non-Sasquatch Badlands

    I ordered a Badlands 2 door without the Sasquatch package. I wanted it but did not feel like waiting (ordered a manual) and realized there were different wheels and tires I wanted more in the aftermarket. Anyone in the same boat here? Not too sure what I might do with suspension, wheels and...
  18. Badlands stock wheels growing on me

    Since Ford isn't offering a middle option for manual transmission (no mid package on BB/BD with MT), I've been considering either basemansquatch or Badlands. Trying to keep price of Badlands down because it's already stretching my budget. I love the upgraded wheels, but for $1000 I'm second...
  19. Mansquatch through DIO?

    Hey all, I was wondering if anybody ordering a Badlands with the 2.3 and Manual transmission has talked to their dealer about having them add the suspension bump stops and fender flares from the Sasquatch package and some 35"s at the dealer. I want to row my own gears AND have big tires AND not...
