Dear Bronco6G,

First, I would like to thanks everyone very much for your input and recommendations in regards to your selections and things to look for. I FINALLY HAVE DECIDED THAT I WILL GO WITH THE BADLANDS. FOR REAL THIS TIME. LOL

Here is why:
1. Number one reason I am getting a Bronco to begin with is ”OPEN AIR” Living in Miami, FL it rains all the time. The standard seats on the Badlands work perfectly.
2. Wheels. Even though I do not need the bigger tires and really like the standard tires on the Badlands.
3. After talking to my friends, I do plan to take this out off-reading more then expected.
4. I realized that 12 inch, High Package is not really important to me.

However, I do plan to upgrade to 2.7 L / Auto.

When all is said and done, I still will be below $50,000 for a great Bronco!!

Below is my thinking when a started. Thanks for opening my eyes!! I do not plan to wear a dress and go to soccer games anytime soon!!

Thanks. My only question is the following: Would it be a better move to start with the BD then upgrade to MED and 2.7 L. It might be better priced that way. I guess I have to wait and see. Thanks!

Good choice Claude. I look at the OBX, and the Black Diamond trims, but keep going back to the Badlands. The only difference is I just can't make up my dang mind. But, that's part of the fun right now. When, and if they ever hit the lots then I'll get serious. :)

Sometimes it's cheaper to move up a trim level, but that's not always the case. Hopefully Ford isn't teasing us, and the build/price site will be up in September. Then I can build that perfect Bronco over, and over again until I can actually touch one. (y)

Same thinking here. Looking at probably moving back to the PNW, I definitely want the lockers/disconnect and the flushable interior. I’m sticking with the manual and the 33’s so if I can’t get that with the high package for under $50K then so be it. I get the mid and call it a day! I will be doing my engine break in and as I roll into mile 1,000 be pulling into a tuning shop to install an aftermarket intercooler and tune.

Fun fact: you don’t just have the swaybar disco for rocks and huge articulation. It’ll help on bumpy trails at slower speeds for a much more comfortable ride!

I would love to go badlands, its just gonna be out of my budget. The wheel tire combo on the badlands is awesome, as is all the goodies it comes with. Big bend or OBX will have to do for me.

Does changing your model affect your order in line... will that equate to a later delivery date?

No. Your place in line is based on when you made your reservation. However, what you pick might delay one vs. another option. That is my understanding.

so I thought changing your trim or pretty much anything about your order (except dealer) did not need to occur until Dec when you actually order. There are alot of post.. did I miss something?

I did OBx, but may move to WT or even ....

Yes, it doesn't matter what trim you reserved (except FE), you can get whatever trim you want at order time. Hopefully the OP did not cancel his reservation and make a new one to change trim....

@Gpscharron For the reasons you listed you may be better with a Black Diamond and adding some bigger wheels and options. The BL is built for rock crawling (see the Moab and Rubicon vids) and sounds like it will be more rig than you need. Don't spend money on stuff you don't need and will never use save some coin for the 200+ accys. I "only" have a rear locker and manual disconnects on my Jeep and have done plenty of off roading including some minor rock crawling.
