This is the problem with forums these days. Makes everyone feel like their opinion is worth something. Adds absolutely nothing constructive to any discussion.
These days? I've been on forums since 1997. The only thing that has changed is people didn't get so easily offended back then. If anything it's only become worse with the Twitter Nazis who actually believe they serve a purpose in life.

I don't know if anyone else has seen but came across this video of 4 door Wildtrack and good video showing 12 inch screen

I look at a 25" monitor all day, not impressed by big screens. At least Ford put it inside the dash and not sticking up like its an add on.

The bro-country music 🤮. I don't see any cows on that kid's lawn in a subdivision, either. :LOL: Doesn't he live in the Detroit suburbs? I can't take this kid.

Why is the child needed in these videos? He offers nothing. The editing is okay but why all the color filter changes? Makes it hard to k ow what the colors and materials actually look like.

And that fucking music.

Seriously why do they keep giving this kid broncos? Please ford get these in the hands of youtubers and journalist that actually know what they're doing.

People may not like guys like doug and the tfl crue but there's a reason they're popular. They can actually do car reviews and provide information of value to to the end user. Not pointless comments like this is a four door. No shit baby face we can fucking see the truck.

You can see at 0:48 seconds a clear positive terminal marking by the way. Looks that way.

He has another video with a 2.3L Big Bend. You can see a lot more detail of the engine bay. It looks like the negative terminal is on one battery and the positive is on another.

Maybe I'm just hyping myself up, but having a two battery system from the factory is so cool.

not another one of him. Could have done without the music in the video. I had to mute it. The editing was poorly done along with the narrations. It was boring to watch and didn't flow well. How can I take this guy serious when he doesn't even look old enough to drive?

Here are images side-by-side of both engine bays from his videos.

It's hard to say as I couldnt find anything that listed it would be the case and can still just be a fuse junction area based on the wire bundle leaving and entering the area. It looks large enough to be, but also weirdly setup, and that may just be terminals or auxiliary plug locations. Hopefully someone with a unit in front of them will confirm sometime, couldnt find an answer on multiple forums, but only a cursory look atm.

If it's not a second battery I'll be doubly sad, because I can't see any place to fit another battery. I guess I could rig up jackery or goal zero inside or something.

Honestly this is likely a better scenario in any case, more rapid charging, portable so useful in other situations, etc. Personally I camp with a portable inverter generator (LP fueled), but for short stays I have a battery based generator. With more time and definitely within the limits of my ownership of this jeep, I will likely add a solid state battery within the next 10 years that will be onboard. Until then, this will do nicely.

If I can put my power system in the engine bay then I can have more space inside to fit gear and maybe even have room for a sleeping platform.

I want to plan my build and it's torture waiting so long to see one in person.
