Trying to wait patiently. Always navel gazing the competition. Lately I'm obsessing over the Mojave for the bulk cargo area and the ability to still put a rack on.

Use case: Car camping with dog and toddler eats up a lot of space. Commute is about 30 highway miles each way.

Anyone care to help and pitch me pros and cons of a MT BL vs MT Mojave.

3.6L only, triangle back doors and the back end hangs out the back a mile. No thanks. The only upside is that you can put a 37in spare underneath.

If I changed my mind and got something else to replace the Bronco because I couldn't wait, I'd kick myself every time I saw one, and would regret it forever. So I'll wait patiently.

I couldn't agree with this more. I was also debating on the Jeep option, but that's because I'm impatient. If I did buy a Jeep, I know I'd be happy in the moment but then feel like shit later.

There's no way I'd switch for a Wrangler. Gladiator seemed just enough more practical and still off-road convertible fun.

My answer is based on which date your Bronco reservation was made.😘

Gladiator's not a true desert runner due to SFA and not as good at crawling as a wrangler because of it's ass end. Honestly I wouldn't even consider it, wait for the Badlands. It will do high speeds in much better fashion and it wont scrape over the rocks like a truck would, not to mention sway bar disconnect feature and lockers front and back.

I'm early August. Not the reveal wave, but not far behind.
Then by all means, get the Mohave. Those of us that gave up our July reservations in favor of the Grangetober deal (since we were waiting for mansquatch anyway) will all move up a slot.😍😍

Go to [email protected] for the best of both. Drive a Gladiator on lease while you're waiting on the Bronco.

Then when your Bronco finally arrives, you'll just have to decide on which one you want to keep.
