Had my bronco over a month and I am enjoying every minute, well built, nice to drive compared to a jeep, lots of power from the v6, plenty of room, electronics work well only thing I had happen was the 12” screen stopped working I gad to disconnect the negative battery terminal, it never happened since, I reported it to the dealer, another thing is spots forming on my hood and fenders that looks like rust, I just got back from the dealer they took pictures to be sent off for a decision. It’s ridiculous why is a vehicle rusting already? I thought these broncos we’re made from aluminum. I attached some pictures. Other than that it’s been a blast!

Wheels / tires specs:

Fifteen52 Traverse HD (-0 offset)
35” Nitto Ridge Grapplers

Awesome looking build! Some body panels are steel, but hood and fenders are definitely aluminum. Not sure what those spots would be

Nice pics Thomas.. even the green thing. Lol 👀

I think you're bronco just might need to be claybared. I had those rusty coloured specs all over my last couple vehicles. Hard to say where they come from but road grime/tree sap/ natural environmental thing... Everything comes off with claybar. I have to do mine twice a year out here in the west coast if it annoys me. Might be something else tho...

Well, Aluminium is a very expensive material... But having rust already?.... Hmmm
Acid rain in your area, perhaps...

Man both of those vehicles look great. Can you drop the wheel and tire specs for the Bronco? I'm trying to decide what wheel/tire combo I'm gonna run on mine.

Also depending on your water in the area they could be spots from bad "hard water". Again can be looked after with a claybar.

Hard to tell from the pictures, but could it possibly be rail dust from transport?

Oh…nice Bronco and beautiful Viper.
It wasn’t always there it formed I noticed it yesterday when I clean it.
