2024 Bronco Raptor. What a weapon!!!

Hey Bronco6G. First post here. I’ve been lurking for a while and Im thankful for all the great information and insight provided here. So I thought its time join up now that I own a Bronco and contribute as this journey unfolds.

Im coming over to the Bronco from a Tundra TRD Pro (Frankenstein). I thought the Tundra could take me anywhere but as I continued to up the ante, the long wheel base and size of the Tundra proved otherwise. My Tundra has been heavily modified, but I don’t think the Bronco will need much modification.

I haven’t owned the Bronco long, but boy, in the short amount of time Ive had it…:love:. This truck just goes. Its unmodified currently and has tackled everything thrown at it. It has run with Jeeps on 40s, crawler buggies and everything in between.

I recently took it out for its maiden voyage and broke it in (literally, broke off both fenders). Absolutely thrilled with its performance. It may well be the most capable off-road factory vehicle on the market.

Here it is

When you get to the top of the mountain, youll need to make lunch, so the tiregate table is necessary.

Time to get it cleaned up

Did I say we broke both fenders off? Does Ford have a narrow fender option because I need it.

Once you get the mud off the damage is revealed

My Everglades will likely be here around mid to late May. Reading through this and watching the videos, this post might be the single most exciting post as someone who is eagerly awaiting their first off-road vehicle.

Looks like a great weekend with a great rig. Seems like the family enjoyed it too. Congrats!

Several companies make fibre glass and carbon fiber fenders for the Braptor which are narrower. Only problem might be that at full flex, stock suspension may cause tire to crash into the narrow fender.

If you want to see a really fast air up, get some Monster Valves to combine with your tank. Not sure if you can add them to factory wheels.

Congrats on the new rig! Agree, the Braptor is so capable off-road right out of the wrapper that it’s almost like cheating!

May I suggest you get yourself a foam cannon - makes dirt/mud dissolution much easier than traditional power wash & hand scrub alone.

Thats sounds like a great idea. Got any specific recommendations?

Nice setup. Two questions.
1. What is the board under your tailgate table? What brand and model is the table?
2. Did you make up the four-way tire inflater hoses or is that part of a kit? Make and Model if you bought it?

It's a cutting board. Product is from GoosGear. They make high quality product geared toward the overland crowd

2. Did you make up the four-way tire inflater hoses or is that part of a kit? Make and Model if you bought it?
So I picked up the Runnin 4 Tacos QuikFlate when they were running a special. I don't follow them anymore really, and have no idea if they still sell it. But there's a ton on the market now.

Oh and get some coyote tire deflators (or whatever brand, all the same) to air down quick if you don't already have something.

Awesome, this is why painted flares are a bad idea if your gonna use it like it should. Out of the box its badazz outside the KO2 tires, those are not soo good when its wet and how I took out one of my front flares when it was new.

Great story and man I’m sure I’m not the only one to cringe seeing those new painted fenders take a beating!
Question: is this normal for the inner wheel to be misaligned with the outer ring? Notice the spokes don’t line up. Does the ring float on the wheel? I’ve never seen this before.

The beauty ring is misaligned. The indention circled in red should be matched with the valve stem
