If there is anything to be disappointed in about today's events, it is the response from supposed enthusiasts on this and other forums. How can you claim to be a Bronco lover, and not get excited about a new Stock racing platform? Whether you follow the sport or not, it has all kinds of benefits for the brand and off-road enthusiasts in general (in terms of the aftermarket options).
Exactly this. 100% people built up their own hype and got mad / disappointed when it wasn’t what they envisioned but this is a good thing overall for the brand even if it isn’t something you can buy off the lot.

Thanks for that. Speaking of "buy off the lot", if that Bronco 4600 was produced for sale, I wonder what it would cost. I'll bet it cost close to 6 figures to build that rig...

I don’t care for racing. I’m not mechanically inclined. Have very little interest in after market. I was hoping for an Uber retro trim package to go along with my father’s classic bronco. That’s why I have little enthusiasm for this reveal. Not for me but happy for all that are excited.

I am intrigued by the hidden winch. I wonder if something like this will be available for the commercial market.

It was a racing event and they showed off racing Broncos... seems pretty fitting to me. That rig with all the one off custom stuff yeah I can see 80K easy.

That thing would be an easy $125K. Just paint a 2 door just like it and bam, ya got one. We'll see how well it does on race day. Some before and after pictures would be fun.

Internal components shot of a 74 Weld portal. 20/31 teeth (1.55:1). I suppose if the rear has a 5:13, the front could be a 3.31 (reverse-turning).

Normally the axle half shaft would go through the center of the hub/wheel. Portals offset the hub from the axle. This offset gives you more ground clearance and more lift while maintaining better suspension geometry. Additionally more gear reduction can also be built in.

the idea behind a portal is clearance as it moves the centerline down at the wheel but higher clearance at the connecting point to the axle / links plus you can mess with gearing ratios.

The title was a bit misleading, so I was right?! Its another "concept" that won't be produced?! HA!
I wasn't sure why there was so much hate for it til i realized the date.
