Hard to know which are the worst without knowing what ford projected to the suppliers and how well the suppliers can meet commitments. We know painted tops and SAS will be “delayed” but the rest is a pure guess without the planned supplier mix rate.

If the Mid package is a sin And OBX includes Mid, wouldn't that make OBX a sin? (I am hoping not.). I don't really care because of my res date, but it's a fun game to play.

The front license plate bracket is the biggest sin.
So I see a new sinners bracket developing. Which Ford design sin is worse?
- Front License Plate Bracket?
- B-O Brush Guard?
- Front Camera / Winch mounting?
- Number of cup holders?
- Carpet on the back of the MGV seats?

For the life of me I can’t figure out why would the 2 door be a deadly sin.....
Makes no damn sense...
We know the overall take rate for the 4 door will be much greater than the 2 door...
MIC Tops, that's my guess. Tops seem to be an issue.

I think the take rate for the 2.7 could have been a lot lower if people had a chance to drive a 2.3 before ordering. There was a lot of fear whether the 2.3 would be "enough", so people checked off that box. I would bet at least 1/3 of those upgrades would have kept the 2.3 after a test drive.

I dropped the optional Advanced transfer case in my Black Diamond build in anticipation that would delay production of my Bronco as it will be in the Sasquatch, Badlands, W/T, and FE’s. I don’t think I really need it anyways. But I do think the Sasquatch package will be the “biggest sinner”

I had also heard speculation that it was the MIC tops for the 2 door that causes it to be a sin. I would think that the Ford body plant could stamp out as many 2 door bodies as they needed. But if Ford only planned on X number of 2 door MIC tops then maybe the supplier can't get those made.
Don't think it was a numbers thing. I think it was fit and finish issues. Look at the difference between the MICs now and first roll outs. Big improvement.

Ok B6G Theologians (and hopefully some folks with real inside information). Which of the Bronco deadly sins is the most likely to delay your production build? We should refer to this sin as "Pride".

I extracted the data from the B6G orders thread to get this started. I excluded data from the 167 First Edition orders since those orders already have absolution for their sins.
The Wildtrak is a sin because Ford called it out but I've always wondered if the Wildtrak sin was really just a subset of 2.7 + Squatch sins?
I added Mid and High packages to the list since the Mid package has been called out recently. Alternate tops are also identified as a sin in my list (late availability).

The Ultimate Sinner order is a 2 door, 2.7, Squatch with Lux. Tops Ultimate Sinner includes Alternate Tops. Finally there are eighteen folks who have ordered the Ultimate Wildtrak Tops Sinner combo.

I had the 2.3 in my Focus RS it’s a contender and should easily be tuned to 350/350 HP reliably.

72% of the people did not want to be accused of "Sloth"
