One thing for sure, the Bronco looks a lot more Aerodynamic then the Jeep.
LOL - if you are choosing a vehicle for aerodynamics, this ain’t the place. They’re both bricks, and if you lift the Bronco to the height of the Jeep it will be even more of a brick.

One is OEM and one is significantly After Market. Just saying.
Dude this.
I'm cross-shopping the Jeep, but they're not even close. Top-end Jeeps still come with cloth interiors... and NO respectable engine options.

Buying a new top-end Jeep is like buying a Big Bend for $50k+. With a smaller motor...

After B&P changes I can't afford the 2.7. It's the engine or high package. Decided I can live with the 2.3!!
I'm sure you've driven a Ranger at this point. The 2.3 is plenty potent enough for the rolling toaster that is the Bronco. You can also save some coin with having a manual transmission (look how big it's knob is!).

People worried about outright power and speed, but aren't running in off road rallies, should should be re-evaluating what it is they are looking for in a vehicle. Obviously exceptions are made for those who are going to heavily modify the Bronco for off road racing. Based on the 2.7 engine threads in this forum I am led to believe that we're about to see 87.4% of all broncos set up for Dakar and/or dune rallies, yet 97.2% of the pictures will be on pavement sitting in parking lots.

Yes I drove a ranger early on!! I'm still going for an automatic though! No big knob for me!! I thought about just upgrading to a Wildtrak. Then really thinking I want more things the BLs has to offer. I think BLs with 2.3 be great for me! I'm drive 8 minutes to work, then road trip on vacation light off roading this point in life still.

These pictures and B&P really has me considering the Jeep again. This Jeep is probably five years old and it is a coin toss as to which looks better. Ford will change grills every year and half to make every effort to make the old model out of date.

While I do agree the Jeep looks great...this is vs an OEM WT and they both look stout so I can only imagine what a modded Bronco will look like once we get our hands on them. I loved all of my Wranglers but have always wished I had a Bronco.

Yeah that's my thought or buy a Wildtrak! I don't think I wanna give some things up though offered in the Badlands! So I think best choice. I can always trade in or up later! I think I'll be happy I did drive s 2.3 I thought it was pretty peppy. I'm only getting a two door too!!
Yep....I'm 2 door as well. Was gonna go BaseSquatch with upgrade bumper/aux switches and 2.7, and eventually upgrade to katzkins........but the BD has both front and rear steel, tinting, switches, MGV....blah, blah blah. I can level out the difference If I'm happy with the 2.3. Glad to hear you thought it had good acceleration, etc.
