Hello all,

I am not sure if our orders were special in some way, but if our exact configuration can help other get their Broncos sooner I hope this helps.

My twin @Zombie Salamander and I first ordered back on 10/15/21, both for Badlands 2 door high package with the roof rack, towing, and SAS. More or less a year went by with no change, and on 10/11/22 we re-upped for the 23 model year. When we re-upped we both ordered Badlands 2 door manuals, high package, towing package, with the optional wheels (configured with BFG tires instead of the Goodyears) and with the base headlights (asked the dealer to spec the base lights as we liked the style of those more). We decided not to go for the SAS package as we found out it didn't add much for us Badlands manual folks. In late November I got the confirmation that my order was in production (blend of 11/22/22), with my brother's order being produced on 12/12/22. A convoy shipped from the factory right after each truck was produced and they were at the dealer a day later (perks of living in Michigan). We picked them both up on 12/26/2022. EDIT: I almost forgot, we ordered from a small dealership in northern Michigan.

Grants to the both of you!!!

So I guess the real question is... which brother is actually older?? If are slightly older than @Zombie Salamander that it is one heck of a coincidence that your Bronco happened to be "born" first as well.

I am indeed the older one by 2 whole minutes, and I don't let him forget it haha. I did think it was pretty crazy how it all worked out considering how long many folks have had to wait.

Sequential vins would have been cool.

Any reason you didn’t keep the roof racks?

I don't see on the configurator that you can option for a BL without the signature headlights. Interesting! I prefer the signature headlight look but everyone is different.

Haha! My daughter is 1 minute older than her twin brother. Always has that on him. “Look, I’ve been around a little bit longer than you, my friend!” 😛

You are correct its not on the configurator, its a box the dealer can check when ordering the bronco but its not available to us without asking the dealer to do it. Same thing for the tire swap we did.
