I assume you cant get running boards on the Black Diamond because of the rock rails.

Sorry if this is stupid...I am not an off road person.
From the factory, no, but you can after the fact. Dealer may be able to install before you take delivery. Sell the rock rails on eBay.

Running boards on a off-road 4X4, not for me. Had them on my Jeep and beat the crap out of them on rocks, sticking with the rails thank you. Besides, I am 6'2" and my wife is 5'10", so no issues getting in :)

Maybe you're right. I was just assuming they were overly processed. They still give a good idea of how the wheels will look on the Bronco.
Yeah, it does make sense. It's just been proven they are CGI and we are all hungry for real pictures instead of the ford produced examples which have proven to be not so accurate.

Anyone here order through Bronco Dealer? I messaged him, but I'm guessing he's swamped with emails right now. I just need to know which dealer he's at. Also looking to reserve a Black Diamond since I'm guessing the Badlands will quickly creep into the 50's after options.
yeah, badlands 4dr into the 50's with 2 options as there will be gas guzzler tax on all models people don't think about

Please expand on that if you can. Does the ranger and f150 have a gas guzzler tax as well?

This is straight from the EPA (table below). For reference the Ranger Crew cab with the 2.3L Turbo and 10 speed is rated at 23mpg combined.

The Bronco is not a car.

" The Gas Guzzler Tax is assessed on new cars that do not meet required fuel economy levels. These taxes apply only to passenger cars. "

Raptor with a 16MPG combined with no guzzler tax.

Hellcat with a 15 MPG combined with the tax.

Jeep Wrangler 20 MPG combined and no tax.
