I’ve had more than one person think my Bronco is a Jeep…

There is literally the word Bronco or a bucking horse plastered on it from the front, back, sides, top and every interior perspective.
Is that the way you normally identify a vehicle?

Recently I have had more people ask "is that your bronco". Better than the whole sport mistake that was happening. Never had anyone mistake it for a jeep or a defender

<--- Try driving this thing around 😅

"Wait really, it's a Toyota? I didn't know Toyota made Jeep"

In all actuality, the whole similarity between these off roaders likely confuses people because there aren't enough options out there. And given too many options, the only reason they can tell a Lexus from a Kia is the obsession with emblem status, and grille design.

Hey, at least they didn’t call it a Bronco Sport! It can always be worse… 😂🤣🙈

Pretty sure everyone knows the real Bronco is smaller, and doesn’t have a removable top and doors.

If it looks like a Jeep, doors off like a Jeep, top off like a Jeep, it’s probably a Jeep in the public’s eyes.

I'm pretty sure 89% of the general population will think it's a Jeep of some sort.

I have gotten it more than I expected, but outside of us nutjobs mostly no one cares. Give it a year or two and maybe only 79% of the population will confuse them.

What’s worse is I had a guy named Larry leave a post-it note on my front door that said “If you want to sell the JEEP call me!” With his phone number. This was for the ‘73 Bronco in the picture to the left. Hope he’s not still waiting for the call! :ROFLMAO:

Maybe they were confused by the cheap sticker stuck on the front fender.

Well when I drove around some older people in wranglers give me the “jeep wave” I just laugh.
