I did the same thing…. Went out and test drove a rubicon last New Year’s Day, had my custom ordered rubicon in my drive way in March 2021, all thanks to the ford bronco launch failure lolI’m a MOD Top 2 door Bronco reservation (7/21) so I was already bumped to MY23. Spoke with my small dealer and based on the “new math”, number of reservations there, and number of MY21 Broncos they received I’m now a MY24 Bronco.
Luckily I realized how ugly this was going to be when the MIC 1.0 fiasco and new MOD Top producer info came out.
So I ordered a JEEP JLU Willys to hold me over (6 weeks exactly for sold customer order). I went wheeling with my daughter today. I refuse to miss out on that type of fun due to Ford’s constantly moving goal posts.
Who knew the best JEEP advertising would be Ford’s Bronco rollout.
Still hanging in there for a MY24 Bronco but not giving up the memories.
My Plan B, if I decide to go that route will probably be a 4Runner. I’ve owned several Wranglers and never satisfied with them. I miss the TRD Off-Road 4Runner I had. With the new one coming out, I may have to adjust my sight picture.Since Ford is struggling to figure out how to build and deliver Bronco's, some may not even have hope a of getting one before 2026.
Well life moves on, what are you looking to purchase instead of a Ford?
