Not a whole lot has changed (at least that initially attracted me to the bronco) from the start to now. Cancelled reservations just mean im one step closer to my bronco.
So your green flag is other people’s red flag. I’m a day 1 reservation guy so cancellations get me nothing!

Sir, this is the internet, middle of the road rational opinions will not do. Please pick a side. If you are unable or prefer not to preform these functions, please let us know and we will be happy to find you another internet - Flight attendant voice
A middle of the road, rational opinion is, in fact, picking a side. Therefore, I shall pick the irrational side and say boo sir. Boo for being rational.

My red flag is being laid off of work last November. I could purchase it outright, but do I want to do that? That is the question. I may end up holding out until the very last day to submit my order, or I may have to cancel if I cannot find employment before March.

What a time to be alive.

Well that's not really a red-flag from the vehicle stand point. Sorry to hear and hope all works out. Kind of skeezy but you could order and then always back-out, just depends on what the dealership deposit / refundability looks like. I know the dealer gets dinged a little though.

No flat towing is my only red flag.
Are you sure? I thought I saw flat towing was available :unsure: . Should be able to as long as the transfer case gives you a true neutral.

Edit: Under the Power Train section it states both transfer cases allow flat towing.

I have no idea if I should order a 2.7 BL lux, 2.3 BL lux, or build up a 2.7 OBX. Everything about it is due to payload needs. OBX will cost me more than the 2.7 BL, with less content and I may pick up maybe 150 in payload based on my estimations. The 2.3 BL lux is the least costly, and gets me to the same spot, with more content over the OBX, but weaker engine. But scaling down a 2.7L BL to 2.3L BL all for "not knowing" the payload would drive me nuts. Dying to see those numbers. They mean more than dollars at this point.

Good news! You can’t order a Bronco today. More good news if we don’t know by ordering opening, you can change your order prior to the cutoff date at the end of March(?). Plenty of time for details to come out.
