Hello everyone. I am fully ready to jump the Toyota ship to a Bronco but I am concerned with cargo space. My family of 4 easily fills my 4Runner for a family weekend outdoors. Any real world advice on how much space I will be giving up is appreciated. I think it is 12 cubic feet smaller than the 4Runner.

That is about right from what I've read. But remember that luggage on the kid's laps will keep the rough housing to a minimum...:eek:

The second row seating is narrower. The rear storage is around 11 cubic feet difference I thought. Other than that the numbers are quite close.

I’ve also heard that putting rocks on their heads will keep them from growing too fast..

It will be a difference you definitely notice, Bronco is smaller.

Well, that's what I was afraid of. The problem is, what is a good looking vehicle, off road capable, that can fit 4 people, 2 dogs and all the stuff they like to take to the great outdoors!?

Bite the bullet and assign the family luggage they will use.

Example: Wife gets a checked bag, kids get carry-on (Take a carry-on for yourself to show solidarity). Then max of 3 additional carry-on bags for misc. Kids are small, so small items go under the rear seat fronts and cooler bag sits behind the console.

I'm making no assumptions for what your family packs or why, and have troubles convincing my own pack-rat GF to cut down on the completely unnecessary gear she wants to carry, but with our gear I've seen at least 2 carry-on size bags that she's going to be afforded the "opportunity" to leave behind once the 2-door Bronco graces our driveway as there won't be space (too many classic cars filling the garage!).

That’s for everyone to decide on their own situation. For me it would never work as a family vehicle like that. It will be the smallest vehicle I’ve ever owned by far. I would of bought a Jeep a long time ago, but I always felt it was too small (and ugly). Yet here I am buying the Bronco lol. I will always have a super duty though, and the wife drives big SUVs, so this is a weekend toy type for me. Like I said everyone’s situation is different.
