Hey Bronco Nation, how are we feeling with about a week of the 2023 news under our belts? Last week we:
  • saw the order guide
  • took at look at the modular hard top (somewhat in vain)
  • had Build & Price update (if it's been weird for you on your computer, the link usually works well on your phone)
  • heard there would be no Shadow Black (or body-colored) mod tops at all in 2023
  • went back over the Heritage and Limited, as we heard varying stories about how someone could get one or the other. Consistently, however, dealers have been saying they will be marking these up.
We've got plenty of success and failures of people being able to convert, but one callout for sure is @The Bronc's thread on SAS falling off the order. I'll highlight that in a news story later this week so people who don't look at the forums can double check.

Other stuff that might be interesting to you -- Ladies' Day at Nevada. The sign-up form is still open, so it seems they have space available on at least one of the days.

Finally, you're hearing it here first, and I'll do more in the news throughout the week and then into next: Bronco Nation's website and forums will be getting a new look very soon, as well as some new functionality. I'm still fully taking in what's going to be changing, but we'll work through it together once it does. The longterm goal is to have a platform we've created from scratch, so we can shape it exactly to a way that will serve you all best. We're going to welcome feedback (and complaints o_O) when it changes over, so we can keep building it better than the last version.

Thanks Laura!!

Question. Will the new forum carryover all current Bronco Nation posts/threads made by existing members?

It will. But here's a piece I feel bad about: We have to shut down the forums, likely this weekend, from 5 P.M. EST Friday until launch. They will be read-only, meaning you can still visit and look up answers and topics, but you won't be able to reply or post. This guarantees all will make it over seamlessly.

Hopefully we all have excellent weather in our respective hometowns, so we can get outside and play instead of being online ;)

Maybe we can make a support group page on FB ... :LOL: edit: but kindly, we're trying to do it at at time when most people aren't at work, "working." ;)

Cool. Tks!! When will the new site launch? I need to plan how best to manage my upcoming bronco nation forum withdrawal syndrome lol

Ps-its still 110 where I live today. Hopefully Fall weather arrives here, sort of, by this weekend!!

Right now, it's going live midnight on Sunday, or 9 AM Monday at the latest. We're gunning for Sunday so we can be back online faster as well as do run-throughs for weird stuff before you all roll out of bed.
And it's like 55 here so maybe it will start drifting your way soon ... In a couple, what, weeks? Months?

No way, it's too late, haven't you seen all the Christmas stuff at the stores already?! LOL. I guess I will keep sulking in my own desperation for an update or "shipped" email, all by my loansome. And decorate for Halloween.
