Tomorrow morning I’m picking up my BD at the dealer.
Area 51, 2.7 engine, soft top. I switched from MIC to get it this year, and bingo! I had ordered the base wheels and tires, but just had a 2” lift installed ready for Cooper 35’s and new wheels. (90 day back order from tire rack). Off Roadeo in NH showed me capabilities that I should have ordered, so now I customize. Mirror mounted LED lights, JBL sound bar, wheel well lights, Bimini top and a few more unnecessary ad ons. A small safe that mounts under the floor in the back, etc.

I’m trying not to think about that. I should have just ordered the Sasquatch but too late now. Total package is $3,272. Over $1,000 less than the Sasquatch upgrade would have been. I do realize that Sasquatch is more than tire size. Trying not to think about that either. I’m an off road enthusiast, but having an F150 Lariat for 3 years only once did I take it off road. I plan to be much more adventurous with my bronco.

Are you going to do the Off Roadeo? It’s right where you are, I think. I did NH, and I would highly recommend it.

I should. I was in Austin last week for the F1 race. I’ve been so jaded on this bronco journey up until yesterday when I got a vin and build date in December. I’m reconsidering now. Thanks for the reminder. Forgot about the perks we as buyers have. Makes up for the journey we’ve been through.

Don’t worry. I got sas and thinking about new wheels. And a new front bumper since Ford took away the good bumper off my black diamond.

also I wanted to go green. I emailed my dealer a few days ago to drop the mod top. Thought about going eg but didn’t. To my surprise they dropped the mod top. And I have a vin. Guess I’m stuck with a vb 2 door. Couldn’t be happier. Everyone I know looks at me weird because I don’t normally smile. Can’t keep from smiling.

How much different is the new BD stock bumper ?

I ordered my BD last February. I had to convert to a 2022 model year. I will be getting a 2 dr Carbonized Grey Sasquatch 2.7 with Mid Package. Cant wait. I think the Black Diamond trim is really the best balance with Cost / On / Off road capability, and it has the retro looking grille which keeps it kind of old school too .
