    What is your Broncometer at the moment?

    While I was at 7-8 my trip to Orlando to see the one they had that they would not open the door on it took me to a 3. I don't see it being worth the asking price by nearly a five digit number. The two other people with me at the show (one potential buyer and one other reservation holder) have...

    Roof Rails on Badlands/Sasq

    I would be leary of aftermarket ones. I had OEM on My Honda truck and they are perfect with no new noises introduced to the vehicle even up to 100mph. Our Infiniti SUV does not have an OEM cross rail and the only Aftermarket ones I could find whistle going down the road at any speed over 30...

    The price of the sway bar disconnect

    OK, that was not what I expected it to look like. I guess I expected something more angular and closer matching to the modular front bumper. Kind of like a Smittybuilt on a Jeep with the shackles on the back. This looks like it still is mostly a plastic cover. I found the photo of the group...

    The price of the sway bar disconnect

    OK, I missed you said rear steel bumper. Good point, but it seems that Ford has been curiously quiet about it and the BadLand I saw at the Orlando Auto show that Ford claimed was 100% on the exterior did not have a steel rear bumper. No Bronco seen in public or in Factory photos has a steel...

    Bronco with tan interior color

    I wish the colors were reversed on that. The Outer edge cushions are the ones that take the most beating when you get in and out, and black will take more abuse than tan(medium Sand Stone). The tan would be where you sit and be a bit cooler. Tan also starts to turn blue if you wear jeans a...

    The price of the sway bar disconnect

    I accounted for that. It's on the third line down with the bash plates (see text below). "Steel bumper and upgraded bash plates to the OBX and WT (manually on the OBX for the extra plates)" That is a B&P item that can be added so it not a manual add like the plates are on the OBX. I've...

    The price of the sway bar disconnect

    While I have to work until midnight today I have lull times waiting for emails to come in. I've been trying to figure out the cost (value) of the sway bar disconnect in the pricing. I took all Four Door OBX, BL and WT, made them all white as the color, all are LUX package, all have MIC top...

    Bronco with tan interior color

    I've seen Katzkin and I like you can have them with heated and ventilated options which would make them better than the OEM version. The issue with them is they sometimes don't have the color or pattern you want and you have to find a way to get the color to parts like the armrests, door...

    Fording depth

    Not under a vacuum since the state of the gearbox case would be cooling as indicated regards less if the valves is 1" or 36" on a tube. The ball would be closed if the same valve is located at either point. Now if it is a different valve that would remain open under vacuum and close when water...

    Fording depth

    His explanation about the valve and cooling the gear case causing a vacuum does not make any sense. It would still suck in the valve even if it is on the end on a 3 foot tube if there is a vacuum because the gear case would still be underwater getting cool. Most likely a different type of...

    POLL: How has B&P Pricing Changes Affected Your Build?

    You hit the nail on the head here my friend. For me I'm between Badlands and WildTrack. I want a body-color top which may drive what color I decide on. I wish the top would stop disappearing when anything but the MIC hard top is selected, that I could get the body color top without a softtop...

    Bronco with tan interior color

    In the first post, the last one on the right is brown. Brown I want, tan not so much. All the tan leather interiors I've had wear the color off on the outer lower cushion and piping. Don't want another unless my only other choices are light grey. I would prefer brown in MGV with wash out...

    What Top Are You Ordering?

    Far too noisy on the highways. Main roads here run on average around 80 mph or more so your brain and ears hurt after say the three and a half hour road trip I took to Orlando to see the Bronco at the show this weekend. It and a manual trans in this type of vehicle are on my never again list...

    Where Broncos Will Be This Weekend

    They look a bit tight to me so this is why I'm concerned. Do these seats looks similar in size to a Ranger?

    Ford increasing prices in a shady Build and Price update

    I see the new roof options including modular in body color with soft top. When I tried selecting between them the roof went away and will not come back. Possibly far more buggy than the previous version.

    What Top Are You Ordering?

    Having had a wrangler with just a soft top, I only want a hard top this time.

    Where Broncos Will Be This Weekend

    My big concern is that while I'm only 5'10" I'm very wide in the shoulders. The interior in the Bronco looks narrow. How close are the inside dimensions to the Ranger may be sitting in one would give me a feel for the driver's seat on the Bronco? I gave up my 2019 Ridgeline which was a nice...

    Where Broncos Will Be This Weekend

    Ok here are a few I took today. I talked to the rep for about 15 minutes on this. He was in a suit so not really the most knowledgeable. Key points from the script he was given. This is still a prototype so if you saw the interior in the video on 6G form Thursday before the show don't expect it...
