I bought a JLU Willys edition. It’s for the wife, so I’ll be keeping my second Bronco reservation (October Granger res). I’ll likely be canceling my day 1 reservation, so hopefully some of you will move up a slot. I’m fully committed to BaseManSquatch, so no reason to try for a 2021 model. I actually like the Jeep a lot. I’d never driven anything newer than a TJ, but it’s pretty slick. One data point as a comparison, I got the 2.0 turbo on a 4-door Jeep and it has PLENTY of power. I suspect the 2.3 Ecoboost will be impressive. I’m already planning some off-roading trips. Only a LSD in the rear and 32s, so nothing crazy, but it will be fun to compare the two whenever I finally get my hands on a Bronco.

Congrats. Not a big fan of 4-doors, but good luck. Love my Sahara, and parting will be such sweet sorrow (if & when the time comes).

Congrats the jeep 4 door looks better than the bronco 4dr and will be a classic by the time we get our manual 2.3s

For a women's vehicle you saved money over the Bronco Sport . Now you own a fiat , my mechanic hates them because he says there are a ton of problems and he is a 5 Ace mechanic . Good luck with the Fiat jeep dude .

I own a 18.5 Rubicon, first year for the JLU. 60k miles and not one problem. Dude, what World does your mechanic live in to claim they have a ton of problems. Maybe he's the one with tons of problem. 😆
Dodge Demon, 0- 60 in 2.3 seconds. That's one Badass Fiat. 😆

I just inquired on a nacho islander.
They said 8-10 weeks from the factory.
And it’s more expensive than the bronco.
And was the turbo four.

but man it’s tempting to potentially get it three mo the earlier




I read a review that said the 2.0 power delivery actually suits the Wrangler better than the v6.

But seriously rented a jeep in Sedona when our Xterra (at the time) was getting some suspension work. And it was a blast. Just not a 40-60k daily driver kind of thing.

Also to be fair... 4runner is the opposite spectrum of not being impressed. But at least safer to drive.

If anyone is in the AZ-sedona UT-moab look up Barlow Adventures (jeep rentals). It's a good time!

😬 trying to stay positive. Not sure if jeep people are too dumb to find the correct forum or can't afford a razor with the B&O sound system. Jk

I own a Jeep Rubicon and 4Runner TRD PRO. Plus ordered two Bronco First Editions last week. I'm getting a little confused on what's the correct forum I should be on. 😆
