Ford Bronco The Expensive Journey Begins BroncoHappy


Day (-1) The day before, at dealer
Ford Bronco The Expensive Journey Begins 1000005787
I

3/19/2024 ... let the fun begin!
Day 1 - Straight from the dealer

Ford Bronco The Expensive Journey Begins 2024_Wildtrak_AzureGray_HardTop_Day1


Day 2 (3/20/24)
De-badged Dealership Emblem (Giant pain in the a$$ to do)
Note: A great dealer to work with, was really a great experience, but I really wish they didn't badge my ride.


The never ending list begins:

DV8 Front License Plate Bracket $49.99 - recommend
Black Silicone License Plate Frame $4.76 each x2
Black License Plate Screws $8.79 - For rear plate - because they have to match
Smoked Ford tailgate emblem $48.89 - Too Cool not to add
Antenna Delete $16.99 - Just to swap out for carwashes
Redline Hood Lift $99.99 - works well, pain to install
Fuse Box Labels $5.89 - should come in handy at some point
Fuse Labels $5.65 - should come in handy at some point

3D Maxpider Floor Mats $182.74 - recommend
3D Maxpider Cargo Mats $106.99 - undecided
Screen Protector $14.63 - recommend
Auto Stop Eliminator $99.99 - recommend
Aluminum OhSh!t Handles (front) $68.99 - recommend
Aluminum Oh Sh!t Handles (rear) $69.99 - recommend
Center Console 2 level Organizer $23.49 - recommend
Seat Jackers $79.99 - undecided
Dynamat (cargo area) $205 - we shall see
Siless Liner Closed Cell Foam (cargo area) $49.95 - we shall see

Front windows tinted $150
Ceramic 20% I think

Small Bull Bar $99.99 - preference
Ford Trailer Tow Kit (2024) $339 - Worth the effort
Hitch Plug $12.81 - Because without the horse how would you know :LOL:

Not Installed yet but here:
IAG MudFlaps $139.99 - Not sure I want these, time will tell
Rockworks OverPriced Bolts $112.50 - I'm hoping these will make life easy
Rockworks Straps x2 $14.95 each

WindProofing Stuffs B6G Link


Other Stuffs:
OBDLink EX FORScan OBD Adapter $59.95 - worth it, worth it worth it.
Also - I paid for a year activation on ForScan, I feel strongly about supporting software peeps who put in a lot of time to make things possible. Still a great deal.

Already owned, put in Bronco
NoCo Boost (Battery Jump) - highly recommend
Boost Adaptor (leave on Battery) - had to modify to accommodate 90 degree bend
Boost Case
Viair Portable Offroad Air Compressor (until I can justify an onboard ARB)

Tools that will come in handy
Trim Removal Tool Kit
Torque Wrench
12PC Torx Star Plus Set
100lb Torque lug drive extension
... so much more :eek:

I have the exact same one! Except for the running boards.
My plan was to get oem (or like) rails and get removable steps for those that need them :) to get in, but this is what the dealer had, and it was close enough and the long wait is over.

I'll keep these for awhile and see how it goes, but at some point I'll probably get rails.

Congrats!

I purchased mine on the 8th and already have over $6K into it... If my previous Jeeps are anything to go off, it's gonna be a never ending siphoning from the bank account... 😂

I have another $5K to $6K already planned

Finally was able to connect my OEM hitch and module, not a bad job.

While I was at it I sound deadened and proofed the whole cargo area, that's a suckfest of a job.

And time to update signature...

ForScan Success!!!!!!
And a big thanks to those that posted, created spreadsheets, videos and contributed to the spreading of this knowledge.

No more crazy double honking.
You don't realize how often you need to leave your car running and get out until your Bronco assaults you with it's horn. Good riddance.

Also, lowered the blinker noise - I swear someone at Ford must be hard of hearing.
I disabled the 'fake ass engine noise' - I won't know if this is good, bad, or indifferent until I hit the road.
