Ford actually produced the first Jeep.

Ford built more than 300,000 GPW military jeeps in all, which amounted to roughly half of all jeeps built for WWII. ... The Willys produced version of the vehicle is known as the MB, which is the direct ancestor of the first civilian jeep.

I expect overall quality to be a bit better with the Bronco. Ford is still my favorite domestic brand, but I’m not going to limit myself out of loyalty to a company that doesn’t know I exist. So far, the Jeep is awesome. I can’t wait to compare the two. I took it out on a local trail today. Nothing very difficult, but the only thing really close.

They were pretty good. The snow was packed fairly well and it was basically just a fire road. But I did go up a few 10 to 11 degree grades with no issues. I used 4h and took it nice and easy to enjoy the scenery. Heading to Anthracite in a few weeks to do some real stuff.

Best handling and riding vehicle I've owned, and best overall driving experience.
Fun to drive around town, and completely non-fatiguing on a road trip with cruise control at 81-82 mph all day long.

A lot of folks like to make blanket statements either anti-Jeep or pro-Jeep, but it's best to stick to personal experience. Some folks have had good experiences, some bad. Mine happens to be good.

My 4XE build is around 9k less than my Badlands build. I think the simpler drivetrain, superior roof and door solutions, 35" tires, and more rugged (In theory) interior of the Bronco is still going to win out for me.

I’m having the same dilemma. Wait for a Bronco or get a jeep.

So I made a flow chart

That is one of the lowest selling cars in the US. I heard they were discontinuing them. Your probably the only Fiat owner in the US that has any zero issues after 1 year.

Yup, that was done on purpose.

Nope,
The 4C across the board is a very reliable vehicle.

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. 😆

If I may, a friendly suggestion of forums which will suit your current vehicles:

Thankfully your bikes have some panache to them. (y)

What vehicles have you owned that a Jeep Sahara is the best riding vehicle?!
