Congrats!


Those wheels are growing on me a bit. I still don't think I'm going to keep them long term, but maybe it won't be an immediate replacement.
I've got a BL with the standard wheels and was really second guessing whether I should have added the optional wheels the whole time. It's the only thing I found myself ever "regretting" about my order. But these pics make me happier.

Even if I end up wanting to change them I'm probably $$ ahead to buy aftermarket wheels I really want and sell the takeoffs, as I think I could get something for them.

I'm loving everyone getting their rigs!

So, so, nice. Congratulations Brett. It looks like you've got a great co-pilot to help you out. :)

That's a beauty. Is it a requirement to wear the same colors as your ride? I ordered black so its not really a problem for me.

Hello everyone! It has been a long day, but I have my Bronco! Shout out to @PREMiERdrum who was able to decipher that my Bronco was delivered one stop ahead of his! Everyone at Byers Ford was great to work with. I didn’t get a ton of seat time, but I am blown away!

-Badlands
-Four Door
-2.7L
-MIC Top
-High Package

7/13 res date
1/27/order date
6/25 blend
6/25 gate release
6/29 @ 1:49am “your bronco has been built email”
6/29 delivery (2 hours 45 mins from MAP)

Take Aways:

Overall Interior - I have been in a preproduction unit previously at a dealer event so I kind of knew what to expect. I think that everything feels substantial to me. Are there some hard plastics? Yes. Do I feel they will be durable overtime? Yes. I am in love with the cockpit of this rig!

MGV Seats - I am very impressed with the material. I have heard some people say it is a lot like leather and I disagree. I would say it is a little more texture to it. If you have experience with some of the newer boat vinyl that is how I describe it.

Ergonomics - The car fits me well. I like the placement of various switches. I love how my arm rests effortlessly on the open window sill!

Road Noise - The main noise is from the top. The top is a little louder than my fathers 2016 Jk Wrangler in my opinion, but the overall noise from the tires is almost nonexistent. I am surprised with how quiet it is. My wife was surprised with how quiet it is as well.

Handling - Having grown up with Wranglers, I knew how improved the handling would be with IFS. Outside of this I can say that this is a body on frame SUV not a 911, but the Bronco seems balanced and composed in corners.

2.7 L - obviously I am not trying to destroy this engine during the break in period, but it is so much fun to drive!

Attention Getter - Be prepared to talk to a lot of people. While waiting for some things to be finalized, I ended up educating a guy who saw the car and pulled into the dealer to look at it (a couple also stopped because they saw it outside the dealer). The videographer at the dealer thought I was the customer and my sales rep was the custom since I was in my element spewing Bronco6g factoids.

It is worth the wait- We are all hyper critical about this vehicle. I am surprised by how much it has exceeded my expectations. I am going to have a lot of fun with this car and so will you!

Congrats! Enjoy your Bronco.
The best Bronco feature will be making memories with that little guy.
The young man doesn’t know it yet, there are times he won’t show it, but growing up with his Dad and “their Bronco” will be looked back on with joy!

Awesome ride! Same order as me other than color. Enjoy your ride and hopefully I still see mine this week (6.28 Blend date and built email).

Thanks for the write up and the pictures!

Next to the black steelies on the BD, these are my favorite of the stock rims... much nicer looking than what they came up with on the SAS tires IMO.

Drive it in good health and please keep us posted with more updates when time allows.
