Click baitish but wife and I drove from southern Indiana to Mackinac City before catching the ferry to the island and didn’t see one full size BR in 600 miles, only 7 Sports. :(
We drove from Philadelphia to Ann Arbor and back this past weekend and only saw one ( and it was on a trailer )... Figured we were bound to see a bunch in MI, but no luck :(

I went from Illinois to South Carolina and back to Illinois a couple of weeks ago. Saw two Big Broncos. One in SC (Hard top Outer Banks) and one in Indiana (Soft Top). I told my wife before we went on vacation that my goal on vacation was to see at least one Big Bronco. It only took 36 hours worth of driving to see them. Attached is the Outer Banks I saw first. It pulled up next to me when I was waiting at a stop light 😍

Not much luck in Southern Colorado either. Was at a car show with my 1970 yesterday in Monument, CO and a guy comes in driving a Big Bend 4 door w/soft top (didn't catch the color, could have been Cactus Grey). So this guy has a sub $40K truck and is asking $79K for it. I know someone will pay that to just have one, but I will wait for my 4 door Badlands that is $56K out the door.

I’ve seen 3 dealer demo Wildtraks, 2 First Editions and a Big Bend with soft top and all of them were four doors at dealers here but never on the road.

Seen a couple four-door soft tops in Southern California. Not a single two-door other than Blue, though.

2.7 is averaging 19.1 on 87 octane at 80-85 mph.
I keep seeing 19’s and people saying they do 80-85, but I don’t see how that’s possible. Most of my 2.3k miles are highway miles and I’m averaging 16.1. Granted I’m incapable of driving slow, but I don’t see this ever getting into the 19s, certainly not driving above 80. I’ve even tried ECO mode and slowing down, didn’t change much so I abandoned that approach quickly. 🤷🏻‍♂️

It'll become more common some day... What I haven't seen in a hard top outside of a Ford event. The first time I saw someone in a bronco that wasn't my bronco was a a couple of weeks ago. It was a white outer banks on the side of the street about a half a block up. When my light changed, she pulled out ahead of me and we caravaned into a parking lot and chatted for a while. There are a few of us in Northern Utah now...

I've been all over the country, have yet to see one.

I was tempted to swing by Granger on my way from Kansas to Wisconsin last week. Naturally, I was out of state when they had the Bronco display in Oshkosh, WI.

My average fuel economy is being brought down by my off roading trips. I got 10 MPG the day I spent in 4L with lockers engaged...

Good point, I hadn’t parsed it like that and have had 3 partial days in 4L.

Which app is that btw? I had hoped Journeys would have more detail like that.

We took a Road Trip from NH to Indiana and back and I did not see even see one Truck load of Broncos or anyone driving it as we passed Michigan on the way. But I saw Loads to Jeep, Dodge, Subaru, Toyota and Hyundai Truck full off New Vehicles.

We’re going to leave the Island Thursday and may make the trek back along lake Michigan towards Holland unless she decides to alter the deal. Pray she doesn’t alter the deal any more!
On a drivability note, 2.7 is averaging 19.1 on 87 octane at 80-85 mph. Is running great and very comfortable to drive. Maybe not as good as a new F150 but damn close.
If you're going home via Michigan's west coast, it'd be a shame if you didn't stop at Silver Lake and play on the sand dunes a bit... lol

Where are you in IL? I have seen 2 bigs and many sports around the Oswego/Naperville IL area.

Road trip from Seattle to Yellowstone., we spotted a cyber orange 4d in Yellowstone this last Thursday, we were pulling into Old Faithful, they were headed away from us so we didn't have a chance to snap a pic. The amount of Jeeps we saw on the trip was insane.
