Not being a mustang guy, is this trans issue on GTs only or are all 6spds having problems?Not to be negative here, but Ford's debacle with the manual trans on the Mustang is well-documented. Yes, I know the Getrag unit in the new Bronco isn't the same as in the Mustang, but my understanding is it's a variant of the unit used in the Mustang (please correct me if I'm wrong). That said, I don't want to have the same problems Mustang owners are now furiously fighting (suing) Ford over. I really want a base 2-dr manual with Sasquatch (and in Cyber Orange...c'mon Ford, really?!?) but am worried I'll have reliability problems with the manual. I hope Ford offers an excellent warranty on the manual powertrain.
The 2.3 is a good engine and has plenty of power for off roading. Ford will release a tuner for the 2.3 just as they did for the Mustang. Many with stage 3 getting 332hp and 400 torque out of it.All the enthusiasts that I know were giddy when we learned about the 7 speed. And we all expected it to be available with the V6. Gee, why would Ford go to the trouble of making a new trans that would only work with one powerplant in one truck? That makes no sense, so we were excited about the 2.7-7speed. Please Ford, add the 7 speed to the 2.7. Most enthusiasts who want to shift it themselves want the 2.7. Sell this combo, and I bet you'll sell a lot more of these than the 2.3 - 7 speed.
Let Ford know in this thread that you'd like to Sasquatch Package to be available with the manual transmission! And also sign this petition for it.
I've seen a lot of people post that they wanted a Sasquatch Package vehicle with a manual transmission. However, it appears that it is an automatic only package. I hadn't read this before, so I am just passing it on, equally as disappointed as others.
Yes but we lose the advanced Hoss system, 4.7 final, front and rear lockers, and the flares. Pretty big trade-off if you don't go for the badlands.So the 2.3L / Manual is designed to run on 33's! That is not a bad trade-off people.

Edit: Just saw your trim level.
