I Picked up my 2022 big bend on November 9th needless to say I was over the moon. That was entil I was 11 miles I to the trip home. I slowed down to make a turn and herd what sou did like a u joint. At the time I just chalked it up to the road since it was under construction. The next day I drove it I to town and low and behold I heard it again. I decided at less then 70 mile just together it ride for now. But over the weekend the noise was still there. So I made the dission to take it back to the dealer Monday. They gave me a loaner and told .e they would keep me posted. Well last wendsday they called and I was informed there was a problem with the rear end. As of today I have been in a loaner longer then I have had possession of my bronco. And no end in sight as it seems parts to fix the 4.27 locker I opted for are non existent.

Man that stinks hope they get you fixed up soon.
Hmmm I wonder if they forgot to fill the reared with diff oil. I think I remember someone had an issue with no oil in the front diff.

Well, as much as it sucks, and I get it, it def sucks whne you just wanna drive... you will have a new rear! Hey! Maybe they will make a mistake and throw in a Sqautch rear! But without the front IFS change there may be a lot of grinding noises for a entirely different reason. Good luck and welcome to the Bronco Drivers' Club!

Good morning. Would you send over a private message with your VIN and the name and location of your Ford dealer so I can look into this part delay concern on my end? Thank you!
