A.C. unit for hot weather trips. We would normally put a drip line on the power cord, but for demonstration purposes this sufficed. I was over due to run the AC unit and generator anyway. With both the AC unit and the generator removed there is quite a lot of space in the back! (With that being said, I will never own another half cab!)

Interior: seats out of a 2009 Ranger, (they are a little high for my liking but not horrible. The headliner is some kind of insulation (which I no longer recall) That has a few stickers from trips and breweries visited. Yep, my birddog gets up there with us too! We carry him up the ladder and he generally exits via the side curtain to the roof, then down the windshield and across the hood then onto the bumper and to the ground.

Engine bay, not much to see. Original 302, burns oil, leaks, but runs. Has a 2bbl Holley sniper system, upgraded headlights, jumper cables. LED's wired under the hood, blah blah blah. And the one panel that will NEVER rust. Right rear quarter. Because it has a sweet coating of bar oil from my saw!

Nice Bronco LoneRanger (y)(y)

Good example of why the 2021 Bronco should have a tailgate instead of a swingate. ;)

Awesome setup !!!!

Love the ac, not sure i would want to run a generator (even the quiet ones) to run it though. I'd have to keep a battery bank and solar for me.

I disagree, I am looking forward to the swing out setup. In a traveling capacity I've found the swing out style rear opening to be far superior to tailgates.

I like the idea of using the tailgate as a workbench/landing area for what I am carrying. I do in my F-150 all the time. :D

My 97 TJ has swing away. It always needed a lock when its open, 'gotta love when the thing slams you in the back unannounced :ROFLMAO: Bad enough with a 33" tire let alone a 35 or 37 Think they make them now.

Also it is hard on the hinges, with a BIG meaty tire hanging off it. a lot off "swing out" tire carriers are mounted to the bumper for just that reason.

The only thing I think a swing gate has for it over a tire carrier and a separate tailgate is the ability to mount a fold down shelf on the swing gate for a grill or something. Other than that i prefer a tailgate so I can A sit on it, and B decompress and organize whatever I have crammed in back there. Its really too bad it cant be a magic tailgate like back in the day on the old wagons and do both.
