.......and they still didn’t get a shot of the 2D cargo. We need some pineapple pizza!
there have been a few forum posts saying testers have been instructed to not allow photo access to cargo area as the units running around don't represent final form

Fair enough, but I doubt the dimensions of the actual frame will change. Just curious, and can not wait to see any changes they might make. Thank you!

These are the 3 Broncos that you saw in the Rubicon trail videos/pics thread.

They managed to complete the Rubicon trail and are seen here resting in Tahoe after the accomplishment.

That’s the steel modular bumper in the first two photos and standard bumper in last two pics.

Are there any pictures available of what the headlights will look like on the base model, black diamond since all the headlights we have seen have been on the higher trim models with the LEDs I’m wondering if the other ones look bad.If anybody has any please share. Also on the bottom three models do they still have LED tail lights across all of them or is it only on the top three?

There are harder trails than Rubicon. I think Slick Rock and Dusy/Ershim are more challenging. My 2 cents.
True but at at least this news is better than photos of the new Bronco on some mild dirt road. Rubicon trail success means I can have fun with the Bronco in the Rockies on quite a few trails and back country adventures.

Yes the yellow 2 door has the base lights. You can see it in the Redline Reviews video and a bunch of other photos on here. Pretty sure it was the same one that was playing on the dunes.

I was under the impression that you get a loaner bronco for the off-roadeo
Almost certainly Yes. Ford must be doing these events like they host for performance vehicles (ST's, RS, GT). I attended two such events in the past 5 years. Both were populated with same kind of vehicles provided and prepped by Ford Performance. Typically they are slightly different than full-stock. For example, the Focus and Fiesta ST's had a secondary rear brake caliper (for e-brake turns) and definitely stickier track rubber tires.

I admit it, I have no plans to take my new Bronco down the rubicon trail. An old Jeep, sure but not a new 60k vehicle. I wish I had so much money to throw away to not worry about it. I envy those that do have that kind of coin or the attitude to say ‘that is what they are built for”. I am not there yet.

Or a shot of any of them without fenders.

I’ll take an XL with pineapple and pepperoni instead of ham.

I ran Slick Rock in a lifted Jeep Liberty on 31s with open diffs. No body damage. Rubicon is harder in my opinion.

Other reasons to could be that the fit and finish of the leather/vinyl choices would be different/not available in the final product. And, as others have commented, 'they looked wavy/loose, needing to be stretched... hope it's not like that on the finished product".

Nevertheless, I still click on the occasional ad, not that I want the product, I just want to feed the forum Admin, Doug :cool:

Honestly they don’t look all that beat up - aside from that standard bumper (and maybe some damage on the front right fender, high) it looks mostly like just paint scrape.
