Remind me again what you paid for your '96 FSB? Was it $50K?

Also @kermitfrog Ford doesn't need you to be their White Knight on rear A/C vent design. You offering your experience from the UK that passengers aren't uncomfortable doesn't really apply to buyers at latitudes where it feels like the surface of the sun for months at a time.

I will spell it out for you. Ford Shit The Bed. This is 2020 on a $50K rig. Their best effort was to cut a slit in the floor. 2-dr buyers don't even get that benefit.
Uhh, no, I didn't spend $50K on my Bronco, nor would I unless it came with solid gold rims, or just happened to be a 2021 Badlands 😂

My point is when did rear seat vents become a necessity? I didn't always live in AK. Went to college in Orlando, and owned a base model TJ (brand new in '99) and I never thought about seat vents. I had a soft top, so what did I care? Also owned a VW sport hatch with non-functional windows...in the up position...in Orlando...so I know what hot feels like.

Later I bought a '13 FJ, which had the vents on the floor, only I never knew what they were until after I started reading related threads on B6G...😂

I'm just saying, give Ford at least some credit for creating a solid refresh on a popular, legendary vehicle, knowing they'll need to tweak some things in later MYs.

So if they put two vents in the back of a counsel thats good enough for a 50k rig but putting them under the seats is not good enough even though most people just assume that idea does not work good enough.

I do believe they have done an overall excellent job. I'm still getting mine. But Ford should be receptive to criticism where they have obviously failed.

Funny thing is.... It can cost just add much as those 2.
A Mustang GT500 cost more but can't off road . I fail to see your correlation in cost .

My "Mickey Mouse parts" are FAA Certified and fly on both commercial and business jets, a little more challenging than simple car vents.
I'm sure the engineers working for Boeing were as good as you yet look were that ended up . LOL

I loved 1996! Great football back then.

Okay, on point.... You're choosing to ignore the real world. A fully tarted up Bronco was ~$29K in 1996, throw in that undercoating or a few small options and you're easily over $30K on that 1996 Bronco.

Now apply inflation because we aren't in the 9th grade.

OH SHIT!!!! A $50K Bronco, just like today. Damn, time for some teriyaki, I feel like a champions meal for using the keypads, the internets and some good o'l' fashion noggin' power!

Sorry but i cant see how they failed the 4 door has vents.Yes the 2 door version does not come with them but there must be reason for not being able to put them under the seat as well.

Fortunately I don't work for Boeing, but they are similar to Ford, bad management decisions can put a flaw in any good design.

Your comparing suv... How do you not see the comparison... You then put a GT in place... 4runner is very comparable... Keep trolling

BN just dropped the Navy Pier leather pics. My body is ready for the fallout here haha. I still don’t like it either. Looks like a delta flight 🤣

I love the Outer Banks package especially with the Squatch! I can't wait to get my Area 51! I just can't choose between the brown or blue interior, thoughts?
