Took delivery yesterday! Area 51 Black Diamond Soft Top - 2.3 mid package. Added a 1 in front level and 33 BFG KO2s and I think she’s perfect!

Thank you all for all the information through the looooooong wait. I was a day 3 reservation but had all the deadly constraints on my original build, then switched over to this one and had a build date within a week.

Got it at Two Rivers Ford outside of Nashville, TN and Matthew Barker was incredible to work with. Couldn’t recommend him enough!!!

Edit: Added more pics! Put the vintage Bronco script on today from Bronco Depot USA! Car seats fit well and I’m one happy dude!

Black Diamond SAS and a few add ons.

Very pleased how it drives on Interstate. Also surprised how well it handles the rough washboard of my local roads. We live several miles from pavement and our roads get bad during dry spells.
It is smoother and quite than our F150.

Outer Banks with 35" BFG KO2s no lift, no rub

I just got my Outer banks, 2.7 area 51 this week. I had installed factory ford wheels with 315/70/17 tires. So far, no rub or any other issues. I will eventually install a 2" lift, but just want to see what other lifts come out at the first of the year. Thought others may be interested doing larger tires without a lift.

Plus I installed the classic bronco emblem, the gloss black works well with the area 51.

So far, the Bronco has been great and drives very smooth.

The proceeded to drive it around for 7 straight hours.

Can’t wait for wheels to come in!

Need to get out for an actual shoot, but here are some quick phone snaps of my newly arrived Black Diamond.

You may see your almost twin driving around town later this week as mine arrived at the dealership today. Only difference will be upgraded black wheels. I live in Scarborough.

They’re GearAmerica Uber shackles. You can get them on Amazon but a bundle with the isolators is cheaper directly through their website. I got them because they come with locks, which is pretty cool
Did the shackels come with enough washers to keep them from rattling...or did you have to buy extras?

Mine came with more than enough. Could only fit the thinnest ones on each side. very tight fit.

Howdy!

Took delivery of my dream truck a month ago and finally it's here. Let's just say I spent my time well while waiting for my truck lol. It's been one hell of a daily driver, but an even better high-speed desert runner and rock crawler. Just wow. This is my first brand-new car. I've only purchased used vehicles so this one is very special.

Proud to share my Badlands Sas with some mods.

The lights does cause the soft top to flap on the top. No whistling thank goodness so this tell me this setup is good with a hardtop.

I don't know what it's like with the top down yet on the freeway

Things I will need to fix:

wipers hit the lights so we're extending the brackets to accommodate
I may get two more pods so it goes edge to edge
