First impression

I went by the dealer to do paperwork and see the Bronco in person. Most Broncos I have seen in person just look better than they ever do in a picture/video.

I did a walk around of it. Area 51 looks great. The Area 51 with the black wheels/rims is a great look. As you can see in the pics above it was next to a Sasquatch version and to me it still looked good.

The sales guy kept asking if I was excited. I told him it doesn't feel real yet. It has been 415 days since I decided to put in my reservation. Many hours on forums and attempting to tell my patient wife everything I knew about the Bronco.

Inside - aww the new car smell. Love it. The Bronco had been sitting in the sun (about a high of mid 80s today in Utah) and it was hot inside the Bronco. I was wearing shorts and the seat didnt feel hot at all. Felt very comfortable.

After checking it out it did feel more real and the stoke level is up. I have passed on buying several Jeeps over the years as well as UTV's. They would have been fun I'm sure. I have enjoyed them when I rented them. I feel lucky to even have had this built and be able to get it during a pandemic.

I will pick it up tomorrow.

Looks awesome! I saw this same build a few months ago and loved the Cactus grey and black wheel combo. That is an epic shot of your boy. A Bronco in the wild with a wild child having the time of his life. haha

Update
I picked up the Bronco this morning with my 8 month old and Brought it home and surprised my wife. She thought I was just test driving it...

We took it for a ride on a perfect afternoon up Provo Canyon to Sundance Resort and then up around the Alpine loop. The soft top is nice to go from open air to closing it up a bit when temps drop for the baby. I rode in the backseat with the baby and with the top back halfway it does sit low enough that my head rubs against the soft top.
