Ford needs to delay all tow package to MY22, but make wiring standard for all builds. Do it like the hardtop fiasco. Simplifies build, and removes constraint. Win win!
Don’t tell the insuAll the discussions around adding a brake controller are based on people looking to "adjust" that 3500lb rating.
(through different hitches, upgraded springs... etc etc etc... )
It appears if the nut plates are on the rear side vs front the bolts can be assembled without removing the bumper.I'm under the impression that the bolt on hitch is being installed before the bumper (and a lot of other things). Hence the possible the need to cut or remove the bumper to install an aftermarket option.
Thank you! That clears it up for me. You are super helpful for this forum.Trailer tow was on the list of commodities I was given. Now how big of a commodity depends on how many want it. Based on my orders, I think the mass majority 75% or more, but that might just be regional and if so national rate could be lower where its a commodity, but not a major one.
What I mean is:
Say Ford can build 50% of Broncos with a widget, so the commodity rate is 50%. If demand is 50.5%, its an issue that will slow up some so it is a commodity, but only will affect 1 out of 100 orders. Now lets say demand is 70%, now its 20 out of 100, so its much more of an issue. Then remember that the next week, those 20 allocations take the first 20 widgets leaving only 30 for the next batch so the wait/line keeps growing.
So back to trailer tow, if you think its 1/2 or less of the orders, probably won't be a huge deal, if you think its 75% or more, might be a big problem. However, this also assumes the commodity list I saw was correct, and that it won't change. Trailer tow is one I can see easily increased if demand warrants unlike other options like 2.7L, Sasquatch, etc. Clear as mud?
Also remember once scheduling starts, dealer will have a long (2-3 week) preview period where you can change the orders if its not going, so if Tow is a problem keeping your order from scheduling, dealer can notify you and see if you want to drop tow to get a VIN.
It's a bit more than just a pop up camper lol. And you'd be surprised how the cost add up when you start adding everything up. I looked at a lot of campers and the fit, finish, quality and creative use of space made the decision for me.$48,000?!?! for a popup?
Anybody want to start a pop-up camper business with me?
I’d be more worried about chip availability than towing package.Well, I thought had read on this forum that it had been added as possible delayed or high demand availability. (I'm pretty sure I did, I remember everyone fussing about how hard it could be to add the towing package.) However, I can't find it here anymore. I'm I just making this up? Can a Dealership person on here or anyone else confirm this? Thanks.
I think you can add a tow hitch and brake controller for less than $500. You can get just a tow hitch from Uhaul for around $250.Can someone explain what would customarily come with a towing package? I’ve never had one. Never needed it. But I wonder about future proofing this ride - what would I need to add and what would it cost if five years later I want to drag a small teardrop trailer around with me?
Looking at the bare chassis in Moab you are correct. The bolts come in from the bumper side. Meaning at least the plastic bumper facia would have to be removed to install bolts. The after market ones for jeeps (which are very similar if not identical to what the Bronco would need) the bolts enter from the chassis side. On the Bronco this might require loosening the muffler to get access.I'm under the impression that the bolt on hitch is being installed before the bumper (and a lot of other things). Hence the possible the need to cut or remove the bumper to install an aftermarket option.
