That's Beautiful, damn I wish I still had my FJ. Do you want to trade it for a built 2014 JK with only 29k miles? :)
I wish, but that's from bing

That’s how they should have made the FJ. Wtf is so hard about a removable top manual transmission 4x4? Toyota, Chevy, International, Ford, Jeep all had them at one point.

Safety requirements. They all had them when people were allowed to ride around with no roll protection and a lapbelt.

Jeep stayed in it and the gamble paid off by being the only game in town.
Jeep QC is poo, been waiting for a Bronco or 'real' FJ/4Runner for a long time.

The FJ was the real deal, and just as good as the Jeep Rubicon in the tests they had. The FJ lost points because of visibility issues.

No argument. But I did not buy one because, "no removable top".
I did not buy a Jeep because, "bad QC".

If Bronco was not on the way I would lease a Jeep for the next 3 years to have a fun vehicle for my teens to experience. Then give it back at the end. May still Lease the Bronco to avoid owning the "first year production run blues" for 10 years.

Yeah, this plus the auto industry is in such a change pattern. If the Bronco gets delayed to 2022, I am probably leasing a JT (how bad can 3 years under warranty and no rugged off-roading be?) and waiting to let the Bronco mature / pricing level out and maybe the hybrid come along.

I put a half soft top on my JK. Waaay better than the two piece hard top. It takes 2 seconds to open or close, while in the drivers seat.

As long as COVID doesn’t affect Job 1, I’m fine. If I sniff authentic news that Bronco production and delivery to dealer/customer orders has slipped into 2Q2021, I’m probably going to pull the trigger on another Mustang as a stopgap and look at Bronco after initial model year has cycled. Bronco is Plan A, but with incentives and financing options, I’m formulating Plan B.

I heard that the back seat will be foldable/removable in the 2-door. You know, and it has retracting wings and functions as a submarine, etc.
