    Happy Birthday Bronco Reservation

    1 year ago today Mrs @tlowell01 was tired of a day and a half of "discussion" that was essentially me rationalizing why I should get one trim over the other. Did I REALLY need ______ when I could get by _______. In what can be described as nothing other than exasperation, she just said, "STOP...

    Making the most of the time...reading material recommendations

    I, like many people around here, have not been visited by Santa Ford and been endowed with a build date, so clearly I've got some time on my hands before my Bronco shows up. I thought it might be useful to do some research into this great past time that is "offroading". In my 26 years of...

    Things that are really important...

    Those of us that have not yet won the Bronco lottery didn't get good news today, but I think its important to take a step back and remember a few things. 1. While Memorial Day is mostly celebrated as the unofficial start of the summer season, it's a day to give thanks and remembrance to all of...

    Message from Ford 4/16

    Seeing as I did not reserve a FE, am not a day 1 reservation holder, and unlikely a priority order for my LFD, I was not expecting a build confirmation email yesterday (was definitely hoping!!!). However, it just seems cruel on Ford's part to have sent this message the day after... I guess I...

    Wireless charging pad dimensions (Lux package)

    Has any information been released about the size of the wireless charging pad in the lux package (and is it different in the AT vs the MT because of the different configuration of the center console)? I will be getting a new phone before my Bronco is delivered, and with the size of phones...

    Bronco Family

    I found out this weekend that I am not the only member of my family that is getting a Bronco. It turns out my brother in law is too. His first car in the late '80's was a Scout II, so I knew he liked off roaders, but for some reason it never occurred to me to ask him his thoughts about the new...

    Thanks Ford and Bronco Nation

    2020 has been a <how do I put this> challenging year, and on a night that I fear is going to drive a lot of division and anger, I just wanted to relay my thanks to Ford for putting out a vehicle that a community of people are really excited about. I also want to thank all the good people at...

    Roof rack and taking the top off?

    I will be getting a 4 door with the MIC top. If you get the factory roof rack, are you still able to take all of the pieces of the roof off to go topless? From the picture it looks like you would have to remove the roof rack to get the rear roof section off. Is that the case? If so, is it...

    Deep breath, calm down, deep breath

    Ok so like a lot of people here, I was counting on the X-Plan for my deal so it was kind of a gut punch. However, after sleeping on it and talking to my buddy that works at Ford, I have a couple thoughts... 1. Decision for no X-Plan could be reversed. Man-squatch anyone? 2. We have the...

    Doug Demuro Review of the Bronco

    Figured the community might be interested...Youtube car reviewer Doug Demuro has been given the opportunity by Ford to do a review of a pre-production Bronco (without engine). You can find the video at the below link. Doug Demuro Bronco Review

    4 Legged Bronco buddies

    I'm sure I'm not the only one who has a 4 legged family member that I'm excited to share my new Bronco with, so I wanted to start a thread dedicated to them. This is Houndwick, he's a Boston Terrier/Beagle mix. He's an old man of ~12 (he was a rescue and the rescue org didn't actually know...

    Arizona Trails and places to explore

    I'm a complete newbie when it comes to offroading, but I'm really looking forward to exploring some this great state. Even though I'm months and months away from delivery of my new Bronco, I'd love to get some recommendations from folks far more experienced than I for some good trails and/or...

    ManSquatch, if available, would you buy?

    For those getting a manual transmission, if the Sasquatch package does become an option, would you take it? I will be getting a Badlands so I’m not sure if I would (though if it does become available, there is a pretty good chance that $2500 would slip out of my wallet). I can definitely see...

    Why no manual transmission + Saquatch?

    With the latest news broken here that Ford is testing a manual transmission Badlands with a Sasquatch package, it made me wonder what they are having to test and why it wasn't a available combination at the outset. It seems to me that 90% of what you get with the Sasquatch package is available...

    More difficult waiting period?

    We new bronco enthusiasts are in for a long wait until we get our vehicles. What's going to be the harder wait period for people, 1). announcement to order (Mid July - Dec) or 2). Order to delivery (Dec - ???)? It's like being a kid and waiting for the agonizingly slow march of time to...
