Not joking brother. I need the rear floor to be flat, or close to it with the back seat down for the way I use the vehicle. That rise in the floor may cause a problem. I'm not going to get too excited as I'll need to see one in the wild before I make a decision. It may not be of any consequence.
Got it, I though you were talking transmission hump! If I wanted the load floor flat I would build a shelf with a slider under I think.

I wonder if this was the same one I saw in Okemos, Michigan last Sunday. It was a little dirty.

Welcome! Hell of a first post! This does seem to be the same one. How did it look in person? In pics, to me, it looks like the stock tires are just too small for a 4dr.

Thanks! I liked the color a lot,it was just a little darker than I expected (probably from the dirt). It was around 11am when I took this so it was bright out. I’m not a huge fan of those wheels in general, bigger would look better.

I’ll keep an eye out for more, this was the same parking lot as the wrangler comparison that someone else posted. Hope to take a pic next to my 2020 outback to see the size difference as I didn’t have time to last week.

Thank you! I hope to see a 2 door soon and will probably try the same parking lot this weekend. I think it could be a turn around point for testing since it’s around 1.5 hours from Dearborn.

Keypad is definitely a no go from the factory. I saw in another thread it's possible to buy it from Ford parts after the fact and stick it inside the gas door instead of above the driver side door handle.
Careful with this - if it's like Ranger's current keypad - the programming **HAS** to be done with a dealer scan tool. Some dealers like to gouge on this.

I would think you could just factory order it and remove it to relocate it. Wouldn't think it would be any different than debadging?

It wouldn't, but I'd probably just try and have it added as a DIO/ dealer accessory and thrown in the glovebox for me to install as I see fit.

I hear ya. That, along with the seats not folding flat kinda throws my thoughts of car camping out the (frameless) window.

Makes me hesitate and wonder what other seemingly minor details there are like this, ones that I'm sure that future model years or generations of the Bronco will refine and improve.
the rise in the back seats is about 3-4 inches and parallel with the back. With all the overnight camping I have done over the years I could easily come up with a solution, but I may be spatially gifted "especially" if I need to! No deal breaker

The Ford team seems partitioned into two groups. Experienced designers and off-roaders who developed the engineering and exterior aesthetics....and then inexperienced interior designers who clearly don’t drive cars in various conditions or have eyeballs that work.
I love my job I get to work with both groups "daily" I look forward to the ones without eyeballs "stumbling" into my shop and relish the OPPORTUNITY to slap some piss into them, much like a former launch engineer on this site, and then we can actually move forward.

could you do that, you couldn't do that unless, you were an engineer. Are you an engineer? how could you match the colors then. This sucks. The sky is falling right into my rear storage area. I'm out of here!

I am not an engineer but I have built all manner of enclosures and similar features into vehicles. There are a ton of solutions to build a drawer or sliding shelf as well. I am sure the aftermarket will have a few options as well. Not insurmountable.

I will likely build a small subwoofer enclosure and mount for an amplifier at some point. May build it into the floor to level the rear or into the side like the factory. I just can’t justify the combos that include the LUX package to get the B&O and adaptive cruise. It’s part of the fun of a vehicle like the Bronco.
