I'm not too worried about it honestly -- I'd much rather have a rock chip on the hood where it's easy to fix/respray one day, then take a rock chip on some other body panel or even my windshield. Thankfully, the only other exposed panted pieces on the front of the Badlands seem to be plastic.Bummer! I'm getting mine wrapped in two weeks and trying to keep it in the corral until then.
Great to Hear! My buddy and I both have bronco's on order through Van Cleve as well.For all you 11/22/ peeps out there that have not received there Broncos yet, hang in there, mine arrive on Thursday and just picked up today ,was smiling to whole 2-1/2 hrs drive home it was great.
And a big thanks the van cleve ford in Morton Wa , I didn't pay a penny over MSRP and only 8.1 sales tax compared to the 10.1 tax in Seattle.
I don’t know the optimal temps on a per engine level, but your coolant should be right in the middle of the bar, and oil temps of 200F aren’t concerning to me at least. Once my 2.3L 7MT gets up to temp the oil hangs out around 185-190F mostly. The water temp gauge I’m sure isn’t an actual read out but a “middle is good, red is bad” indicator. You’ll know when it gets too hotI'm sure this isn't the correct thread to ask this question, but does anyone know where I can find out what the normal temperature range should be for the oil and the transmission? I have the 2.7L and the 10 speed auto. The water temp is in the middle of the cold to hot and the oil and transmission temps are averaging 200 degrees.
