The Base trim isn't available in the orange unfortunately.

Hell, I may go ZERO option 2 door base (sub 30k). 2.3 manual. Just have fun with it and make it my own. How good will the aftermarket be? If it will be like Jeep, I'm totally cool with this route.

We need the build & price up and running.
It will be very difficult for me to not check the 2.7 auto and sasquatch boxes. Smiley Face!

Quick question

The Sync 4 system that is standard in the Base model, does it come with Navigation, Bluetooth, Sat radio etc? Or is it just CarPlay?
Similar to the difference between the F150 XL and XLT systems
This makes a difference for me choosing between the Base and Big Bend. I want Navigation and Sat radio.

Looks like it is the full banana.

I was pissed at first too. Then I realized that everyone with the pricier trims will be going with piss (cyber) orange, Linda Blair vomit (cactus) green, and rigor mortis (area 51) blue to make sure people know they paid a bundle for their new ride.

That's when I realized how awesome and unique it will be to have a color that no one else wants. I'm dreaming of Antimatter Blue right now, but black, white, gray, silver, rapid red, velocity blue...man, they all look good!

Meanwhile, expect to see a million of those other ones on the road next year.

^^^^^ That is one way to look at it. To me these type vehicles are a toy and as such should be a fun color. I can see why some would want a more conservative color for daily drivers. For my usage I'd love a lime green or some such.

Color is the last thing I looked at, I concentrated on the motor, trans, lockers, sway bar disconnect, size of differentials first. I totally missed the orange was a premium tri-coat metallic till I came across this thread. My main deal is to try and not buy parts that are going to be replaced, for example trail bumpers will be bought, then why spend money on factory steel bumpers. I have two platinum trim fords now, I don't want or need any fancy fluff on this toy.

After accepting this and going over the BD list with a fine tooth comb the bumper and HD bash plate (wonder what thin gauge those will be) are about the only things I really dislike. You could say why not just sell them, yeah right, factory take-offs are usually worth next to nothing, the price you get for them aren't even enough to spend the effort of shipping them. This is ok if you are in a metro area with plenty of buyers that will swing by to pick them up. I literally have every single factory part I took off my jeep in storage in my shop.

On the bright side, this build will be more highway friendly than the JK. After some reflection I may be able to just do bumpers and winches and a few more bolt on items along with tuning the 2.7 and be happy. Unlike with my JK, I paid $26K for the rubicon, spent $10K before I even saw the jeep (on bumpers, winch, lift, and tires) and spent another $14k in the following years in more parts, circa 2008.

But I have to say, when the aftermarket gets going on accessories for these Broncos, an owner will have to have the resolve of a viking shield wall.

Anyone else buying a two door at the 29995? Only option I will consider is rear locker if it can be had as a stand alone.
I'm thinking about it, probably will.

Thinking about it, but I do like the roof rack and would use it for snowboards and the cargo box. Also, having the aux switches pre-wired from the factory may be worth it. It's all gonna depend on price of the options and how much I can get out of this old CJ7 sitting in my yard.

Aux switches and a rear locker are my only must haves, and because my wife refuses to learn manual, automatic so I will get a 2.7, they will all be checked off.

After that, hmmmm, BD or base, to squatch or not, color? IDGAF as long as its not white, all theoretical worthless mind scrambling with out the build and price....but I'll keep thinking and talking about it. lol

My wife can drive standard but prefers auto, personally I'm happy with either, same with the engine.

I'm having the same thoughts as well, albeit different models, it all depends on how the packages price out. I'm torn between Badlands or base squatch. .......... or ............ just do a base w/ aux switches and add what I want in days, weeks, months, etc. after purchase.

Hope to get the price/ build sooner not later. Decisions to be made and before I realize it will be Dec.
