From some of the info from Super Cel East, if you get the vinyl washout interior you cannot get power seats as Ford thinks hosing with water and power seats are not a good combination. I am not sure it applies to vinyl seats across the board but it does if you are getting the vinyl wash out interior,

I'm ok with this as long as the manuals have plenty of adjustability, not just forward/back and tilt seat back. Anybody know specifically if the manual seats are decently adjustable?

I'm wondering, too. Here's what it says on the BL page:
  • Marine Grade Vinyl - Front Bucket
  • 6-way Manual Driver Seat
  • 6-way Manual Passenger
The power seats are 10-way adjustable (on the 4-door; not sure what they are on the 2-door).

I don't think 2-door seats have a power adjust option. I'm pretty sure I read that somewhere around here...

So how do you keep your drive shaft from getting bashed in rock crawling...?

Really, that's awesome. Don't suppose you know where that was said, maybe on the Overland Build Walkthrough with the A51?
I saw that in a video for the Overlander, but I'm not sure which one. It was probably the one from Super Cel East.

I did some research on roof/rack weight restrictions. I think the biggest thing that scares me is becoming too top heavy and rolling over.

We put our 160 ponder here!

That's a big pup! Here's my current dog toting set up. Wagon works well but looking forward to a possible Bronco switch. I'd love to have an option like my old 95 Toyota LandCruiser that had "dog" windows on the side in the cargo area. I'm also wondering how I'll tote my pup around with the doors off!

Good looking Pup. I don't plan to move our dogs around in the Bronco. He's just too big, 16 months old and still growing, to try and fit into anything like that. We bought the Element just to move him around. He can step in and step out. We were using ramps to get him into my truck or my wife's Q5.

I am 4’11” barely and like 100lbs. No way am I going without running boards! I’ll need a portable step stool just to get in and out! Power to the petite gals driving our Badass Broncos 😀😀😀😀
Well placed grab handles make a big difference.

On our recent trip to Moab we went out in a Land Cruiser on 35's - no steps or running boards. After a few tries, my 5' wife was able to get in and out much more easily.

Awesome. That is great advice! Thank you! 😊
