There were a few moments of doubt a few moths ago whether I should move forward with ordering the Bronco or just sticking with my '04 TJ. My wife said "Are you crazy? You should just get the Bronco. After all this may be the last new vehicle you buy." I have been sleeping with one eye open and I have my kids taste all of my food! Cancelled the life insurance! :cool:
Damn, that's good stuff! LOL

My wife and I watched the reveal together, after it was over I was thinking to myself, damn I want that. Wife says "Guess you're getting a Bronco"! I play coy and say "Maybe'! She says "The damn thing has everything you've claimed the Jeep doesn't have".

Sounds like she knows you TOO well! Good on her to call you out!

... I think most of the guys who are on here have great ones based on what I've read over the past few months. Yours is no exception....
Yeaaaaaa, not too many guys who are still married are going to post on a public forum "My wife is being a total PITA and won't let me get a Bronco, we just put down payment on a Fiesta to make her happy"

Sounds like something you post when you're trading in the bitchy significant other for a fun vehicle.

wife never gave me a minutes grief over it. I have had my F-150 for 11 years now and have bought her three vehicles in that timeframe. Welcome to the madness.

I read this thread as: "whew, I don't have to find a new wife!"

This is why my wife and I split our finances into "His, Hers, and Ours."

That way I can just order a Bronco whenever I want if I can pay for it myself...

...and she can keep coming home with more and more motorcycles... all the time... without a place to put them... new ones... old ones.... realllllly old ones... and then we get to spend "our" money on a rental garage... and then we get to spend "his" time on motorcycle maintenance...
Your wife buys motorcycles and you have the nerve to come on here and bitch about it Zack? :cautious:Really?

If you want to trade let me know. Ohh damn, mine is about to get a Porsche.... See, I'm stuck in the same boat as you my friend! :ROFLMAO:

Interesting conversation last night with my wife of nearly 20 years...

Wife: "So, our shared calendar shows that you are ordering your Bronco tomorrow?"
Me: "Yes ma'am."
Wife: "Don't you think we should talk about that?"
Me: "Um, well, you haven't seemed to be very interested in talking about it since I reserved it last July."
Wife: "Not true."
Me: "Ok, do you want me to share ALL of the details?"
Wife: "Uh, YEAH - it's my money too!"

Wife: "Don't you think it's a little risky to order a vehicle you've never seen or driven?"
Me: "Yep."
Wife: "Ok, sounds good to me."

BAM! I love that woman to the moon and back! Is she skeptical and questioning my sanity? Absolutely, but I am right there with her. I'm not getting any younger, so F*#K IT...

I'm ordering my Bronco today (with the wife's approval ❤)!

BIG shout out to BRONCO6G and all of the good members here - so much information provided & so many questions answered!
Congratulations!!! Sounds like you have a good one.

My wife has wanted a classic Bronco for years and I told her to wait for the new one so she could have all the bells and whistles. She is going with a retro design for hers. Husband approved...

After spending so much time on B6G I decided to get one as well. I would say mine is 75% wife approved...LOL. You are doing better than me.

Wife and I have joint accounts for saving, bills, etc. and separate for fun stuff that is personal choice.

Bc of this we dont have to have "arguments" about what car, PS5, watch, etc I might buy or what purse, jeans, etc. she might buy.

She knows I am getting one and I asked for her input, but beyond color, she could not care less.

Nice to see all the family harmony with the Broncos!🤣

My wife has been all for it and even pushed me to upgrade to the OBX from a BB. Gotta love em!

I've seen it before (not on here), and it's truly sad.
I feel blessed to have a best friend in mine that shares (most) of my passion for it.
Granted, I have beat her and the kids up with Bronco talk since last summer. But they are stoked as well.
When she isn't super-busy, or the kids don't have some extra-curricular I can even get them in the shop to help me disassemble, catalogue parts, or reassemble after paint, help run wiring. So far I haven't gotten any of them to find interest behind a welding hood, which is my least favorite part as well.
She and my youngest actually applied all of the Dynamat in the last build while I was rebuilding a set of wing windows.
I find myself lucky and grateful.
First wife totally opposite. But we live and learn.

Do you lose your man card because you actually said "to the moon and back." ?
I know my vote.. pretty sure they won't let you order now 😉

I reserved then told my wife the next day without ever running the idea by her. She approved and loved the idea immediately

Interesting knowing different situations people have :unsure:

Either way, I'm glad we're all fortunate enough to be part of this new generation of Bronco owners 🍻
