How are you planning on protecting your bronco once you get it?

Sounds like some of you need to move to a better neighborhood

Did we already forget about the nuclear option to be used in the event that the vehicle is stolen or you have that annoying passenger that asks too many questions?

I'm fairly certain that my bronco will be the first and possibly only one in my town for a while. I have a build date and just got a call from the Dealer about a delivery date. That being said, I am worried about all the interest/attention my bronco will attract. So much so that I am worried about gawkers, onlookers, question askers and mostly people intentionally damaging or stealing my new ride. Am I being all paranoid? and if not, is there anyone else taking this into consideration?
Your Ford Pass App will at least allow you to track it if it is stolen: Do Ford Vehicles Have Tracking Devices? (Solved!) (motorandwheels.com)
Or you could do a slight modification to this device: SOUTH AFRICA: FLAME THROWING DEVICE TO COMBAT CAR JACKING (V) - YouTube

The Rockford Files! When I was about 10 years old, we went to the Ft. Worth Stock show. There was some kind of private party thing my parents went to afterward and James Garner was at that party! I actually recognized him because my parents watched The Rockford Files religiously!

A canon. Just kidding… I have a 7/14 reservation. By the time I get mine, my kids will be in college.

so with all the gun waving here, do you just plan to sit next to it all day and night, or how does that work? Not sure of the logic behind those posts. You're at the movies or in a store or on a hike or just asleep at home, how is your gun going to keep your Bronco from being stolen?

Not sure how owing a gun will prevent that - unless you kind of live in the Bronco and never ever leave it out of sight?

Besides, getting into a gun fight over an insured car seems a bit extreme to me...

I'll go for good insurance, a kill switch and that's it. Somebody wants it bad enough to put it on a trailer while I'm shopping? Oh well. Nothing I'll plan for or concern myself with. Life's too short to be that paranoid IMO.

But you do you. I don't carry a gun around 24/7.

They have these things called camera's that detect motion and alert you in a variety of different ways.
That cover's the home situation.
I am always of the mindset that if someone is willing to steal something, I can't trust that they would not be willing to cause physical harm to an innocent person to get it.
Car jackings are done with weapons, I don't want to walk out to my car while someone is attempting to steal it, and not be prepared.
But you do you.
I prefer to never be a victim.
To put it into terms this forum may understand [Except for one person]
A gun is like a winch. Most of the time you don't need it, but the one time you do, you better hope you have one

Takes a pro less than 30 sec to steal a car, so not sure where that helps. but yes, you do you, I do me.

Was going to comment something similar to this. Can't wait to see people crouching with their hand at the hip 2 parking spots over from their Bronco instead of taking it off road.

'No honey, you go inside the Walmart to get the groceries... I'll be out here keepin an eye on mah Bronco'
