Very nice! Is this the mannequin? Looking at the sticker I guess I didn't realize the sasquatch package didn't include the modular bumper. This looks great but much more expensive than my Black Diamond build.

It IS the dealer’s mannequin order. Just came in this morning so they wouldn’t let me sit in it nor even open the door. Hopefully by my next day off that will have changed and I can get a test drive…or even a test sit! I was told they couldn’t sell it for 6 months or 2000 miles whichever came first. (A little bit different from other limits I’ve read here)

Not even sit in it???? Wow!!! Talk about a spolied kid with a new toy!!! That's just nuts. It's not like you could do anything to it. I hope you do get a test drive soon. Good luck!

my dealer got their lot bronc its a 4dr wild track sas. It was their for 30 minutes and they unlocked it for us and let us tinker with everything on it. Even removing the soft top-with sales supervision. Couldn't drive it yet but seats were folded and adjusted sat in slid back slid forward tilted. About as much fun without removing doors or driving.

Wow. Still hard to believe they would put constrained items on a demo :cry:.

Just back from my dealer and a test drive...now I REALLY can’t wait for my Bronco to be built!!!!!! At 5’4”, I had to climb waaaaay up into the Sasquatch but once inside there are plenty of adjustments that can be made to the seat and the steering wheel so I can drive with confidence (can touch the pedals without the wheel right in my chest). Plenty of power in the 2.7L engine; smooth ride over bumps - still a truck but smooth; good visibility all around; and comfortable seats, front and back.
I was surprised how short the windshield was, but headroom is excellent (even my 6’4” brother will have plenty of room). The agony of waiting continues, especially now that I know what I’m waiting for.

That soft top looks lose as all get out! No thanks!
I can’t say I heard any “flapping” noises driving it on the highway and the tire/road noise was certainly at an acceptable level. Our conversation didn’t increase in volume to overcome any wind/road noise. The latches to hold the roof in place are very sturdy and tight. Yes, it’s easy to open the soft top but it felt tight closed, while driving. That said, I’m still glad I ordered the hardtop...it’s still New England and snow is an issue.

The windows at least just look either cheap or they don't fit correctly with the wrinkles in them. Guess they better work on their softtop manufacture next LOL

The softtop I had on my last little suv zipped on so the windows were tight. A royal pain to remove but never had any issues with them. I wonder if the sag in the Bronco softtop windows could be fixed by somehow shortning the straps that hold the fasteners? I have no idea how that could be done though

Did you recognize Sunnyside from the pictures? I went all over Holden and into West Boylston, on the highway and over all the bumpy roads. Rode great and attracted lots of attention.
Is your Bronco scheduled yet?

Saw Sunnyside from the window sticker lol. I’m a code 99 because I am a SAS with painted mod top, tow package etc

As a basequatch dude who seriously considered a Black Diamond (which I still respect), I gotta point out, to be fair, that's because a Black Diamond doesn't get 4 really nice upgraded shocks, a stronger front axle, or a front locker, and has 3" smaller tires and a lower final drive gear ratio.
