Have you been able to test drive the manual??

what were your impressions ?
I’ve been inside a manual, but haven’t driven one yet. I’m not big into MT personally, but those who are will love it. The crawl gear especially is super impressive.

34" super swampers are equivalent to any 37" tire that isnt made by Interco. I think Badlands on 34" TSLs would be the perfect sublte example of a go anywhere Bronco. If swampers dont cut it the winch will.
Not in ground clearance they aren’t. They’re 33.4” OD. I’m putting 37s on my Bronco for clearance in the rocks

What great about this video? Out showing off the Bronco on SLSD in the middle of “Jeep Invasion” weekend. That’s how you make an entrance!

That looks amazing, I'd take either one right now. Nice and quiet too. 4 cylinders should be silent, nobody wants to hear that unless it's a high strung superbike.
Let's be real, v6s sound like hot garbage also.

Yea, they really should have offered something more sane and reasonable, like a 1.3L 3 cylinder. Frankly, anything bigger is bordering on gluttony.
Like the Chevy Blazer?? LOL
I guess I'll just have to put up with 400+ ft. lbs of torque overkill... :p

I may decide to swtich to the 2.3 if they guarantee to put it in production sooner. No real need for a rock crawler here is beachy Florida. But then thinking of my other several deadly sins…

I have a feeling there’s gonna be a lot of “Bronco Invasions” at Jeep events once these things start getting delivered.

Yeah Im more into mud and hills than rocks. If i wanted to go into rocks id toss the plates in the trash and get ag tires :ROFLMAO:

Still any swamper is always better than any brands next size up.

I will agree that the addition of swampers to any stock rig is a step up, akin to the adition of f/r LSD. Trouble is they just feel so archaic on a new Bronco. The bonus is they hold there value, I just sold the 13 year TSL/SX's off my FJ40 for exactly what I paid for them. I was glad to so those flat spotting f'ers go.
I will be interested in seeing you truck rolling on swampers, love the look.

I dont know if I would call maximum traction archaic. Nothing street legal will dig or grab harder or suck up abuse better. I had a 33x12.50 with a gash about 1/3 the circumference 1.25 inches deep for about 3 years on my weekend wheeler and winter jeep. I think a aggressive rig with out of this world suspension deserves and could possibly harness a super aggressive tire.

This video is a low quality fake filmed in China using custom built ringer vehicles Ford probably commissioned just to spew this propaganda at us!

How do I know?

Because of Bronco6G forum members who are always on top of things. They educated me and now I know that the 2.3 engine is actually of such poor quality and reliability, low hp/tq and deficient injection that it's a minor miracle to get the engine to turn over, let alone operate under load.

So if you have a video of a 5 year old pushing around toy cars in a sandbox, that would be more accurate than this FAKE NEWS media stunt.

That 2.3L has a ton of power! Makes the 2.7L look like overkill.
Exactly what I hope is the case with the 2.7!
The torque rating of the 10R60 transmission is why I chose the 2.3L. Actually driving it just confirmed that choice. Getting built in a month is just a bonus 🤷🏻‍♂️
Getting built in July, but still getting the 2.7!
