    Re: Ford Bronco

    Supposedly they have submitted patents for special easy removal doors and a-pillar mounted side mirrors to suggest it will be fully convertible like the Wrangler (what I wish Toyota did with the fj cruiser), but this is the longest draw out of a new vehicle and I’m sure it will underwhelm. Probably about $42ish to get into it?

    Re: Ford Bronco

    I can't really tell what brand it is. Should I look somewhere else other than the grill?

    The second pic of the blue truck is an artist rendering not the finished model. They wont announce that for a while.

    It’s annoying, if it looks anything like the Icon Bronco, sweet... but if it just has an f150 nose or ranger nose, what took so long?

    Re: Ford Bronco

    If the rear hard top is removable like the original's, and it makes some decent power, it will be very tempting to own one

    Looks similar to the raptor beadlocks. They come with a decorative ring and aren't beadlocked stock. You have to buy a beadlock ring @ $120 per corner and then they lock the bead. They are basically bead lock capable. I believe there are legal issues with selling them beadlocked from the factory.

    Gotcha. Can't imagine most people keeping up on the maintenance.

    Eh, with TPMS sensors these days I think it is less of an issue.

    The legal issue stems from the fact that in most states, beadlocks / multi-piece rims are not road legal.

    So they went from cool two door Bronco nostalgia to Explorer. I guess it is working well for Jeep.

    Unfortunately for eyes everywhere the two door is going the way of the stick shift.

    Re: Ford Bronco

    Eyeing those rear leaf springs it seems this is a body-on-frame built on a reg. cab short bed F150 (or Ranger?) chassis.

    I don't understand why Ford does this. Off road vehicles are far better with a linked suspension. The Raptor has always been leaf sprung as well.

    It's Here! From the looks of things they got a bunch of things right with how they are doing this. Guess only time will tell but the pics/specs look pretty good.

    Fuckin' shame Chevy's reiteration of the Blazer is what it is. Once again telling customers what they want rather than actually listening to what they really want.
