That tire/wheel combo looks very close to my Jeep Rubicon.....except 6 lugs vs 5.

I like both Jeeps and Broncos so looking forward to the reveal.

It's probably offset like that to avoid potential items on the roof rack/tie downs.

That said, I hate mast antennas and don't know why they couldn't have embedded it in the windshield or something.
The antenna is mounted that way because that is how it gets the best reception. Away from the "greenhouse " of the vehicle. Look at an 18-wheeler, the cb antennas are normally mounted like horns sticking forward from the big west coast mirrors. Better reception and longer range.

For the record I like the radio. But then again I'm old school.

All these new pics I want some more " ROCK RASH " :ROFLMAO:

I can’t find it now. but I remember seeing spy shot and the control arms had zip ties and bars hanging off of it to hide it all. Early spy mules. Like last summer
That weird shorty truck had a skirt on its axle hiding its private parts.

Video, er i mean "touch screen displays", killed the radio star.
In my mind and in my car.....

The placement out on the mirror arm is what we're talking about though - normally it'd be further in on the hood vent area or quarter panel.

But it works better on the mirror. And probably easier to replace down the road.

Like the title says, another camo covered Bronco. This came up on my Instagram feed. All rights/credits to respected original poster. I cannot wait for the reveal, watching the f150 reveal tonight to learn more about the infotainment system and anything else that will crossover.

Not the most scientific video, but I just lined up the rear tire as best I could. They look comparable. So based on this the Bronco MIGHT have a shorter wheelbase than the Wrangler which is exciting.

No, and welcome to the forum.

any mention of SFA vs IFS outside of its designated forum gets you this...

I know this isn't the place, buy he may be on to something:

there is some artifacts in there that line up with something different than a traditional IFS and that silver LCA 'bar' just seems...off/not normal.

I thought the same thing at first but when you look how wide the lower a-arm is, front to back, it just seems to wide for anything but IFS.

I was pixel peeping that as well. If you blink or squint just right...It looks like some square tubing that's well in front of the control arm, blocking it from view.

Then my brain goes back to really long lower control arm.

Yeah looks to be in front of the tire to me. Zooming in on my phone.
