My 2003 (I think) had the air ride rear. God what a royal POS. I ripped it out and put in a coil spring conversion when the damn bags failed.Depends on what all you want to do. That optional air-ride system limits how high you can lift the truck. They are heavy pigs compared to the F150.
PS Buy my Expy
I was so sure it would be such a botch job that I wouldn't even let myself get interested until I finally saw that first leak of the black one. All the renders were hideous.Remember when someone posted a picture of the everest and said it was rumored to be the new Bronco. I was simultaneously skeptical and heart broke all at the same time. There was no way Ford was gonna screw it up that kind of way. Lots of other ways, but not that way.
This is the correct answer. If the Gladiator was a 4xE, I actually would have considered walking on my Bronco order. My wife and daughter have a CUV and SUV. I have grown very attached to the pick up truck. I kept the Silverado when I picked up my Bronco. A Bronco pick up with sky active top and a 7000lb tow rating would be my dream ride.It would make sense. Consider stretch the wheelbase and you fain two possible new versions, a 7 passenger suv and a 5 passenger pickup Gladiator style . Ineos has a Grenadier pickup in the works. Btw
Any third row SUV needs to be on a full size truck frame. Period. Craning a third row into the back of a 4Runner, Explorer, or Honda pilot does nothing but create an uncomfortable ride for the people who jam into the back, not to mention it destroys cargo space.
