    What do yo think of the new Bronco?
    I think it's going to be an off road bad ass. 35" wheels front and rear lockers
    With there crawl control removable sway bar. Not much for towing and payload but looks like it will be the most off road capable vehicle right out of the box then anything out there. What do you think?

    I'm really digging it...
    Pretty sure wifey will be getting one once she can test drive one. It'll have to have the sasquatch package, whichever trim it is... haha
    4.70 gears, lockers, front and rear, an actual iron front diff, 10" of front travel right out of the box... good stuff.
    Love the rubber flooring with drain holes and marine seat materials...
    The offroad trailmaps thing is cool too...
    5Star has already done impressive things with the 2.7 eb and 10 spd...
    I def don't hate it... lol

    I could see myself in a new Bronco. Lots of good stuff to offer and it looks great too.

    Meh. The Wrangler Rubicon has had all that for years now. The electronic sway is problematic. Overall it's cool but way overhyped.

    Bang on!
    Ford is trying to play catch up to what Jeep has been doing for decades.

    If I was going to buy a daily driver, that could really offroad to, there would already be a Gladiator Rubi in my garage.
    They are a beast offroad.
    I might have taken the demo I tried where the dealership probably didn't want it to go on a test drive.

    I feel they dropped the ball on the gladiators .I'm not feeling the love .There is still a bunch of them sitting on the lot and the Rubby is like 60 grand .if I was gonna spend that much I'd get a shortened taco pro . but that's just my 2 penny's! :)

    They certainly have room for improvement, but then I feel ALL vehicles do.
    But true offroad, not just driving down a gravel road, it is impressive for a completely stock vehicle.
    My experience with Ford vehicles the past 7 years also has left me extremely doubtful about their build quality. I used to drive a Ford truck personally, and had more as company trucks. Not one left in my garage ( except my mustang, but no trucks ) and the same for work vehicles, no more Fords. Front end parts worn out so badly that they death wobble in 6 months, shocks so cheap they may as well not be installed, but much worse than those issues, ecoboost engines that are a ticking time bomb. It is not a question of will it self destruct, but just a matter of when. Never had any engine problems in my vehicles before or since, but my F150 seemed to live on the hook of a tow truck and in the dealership waiting for more repairs. There were other problems galore, like the interior got soaked every time it rained, doors that won't open in the winter, rattles, but the engine being made of something about as durable as soft swiss cheese, is just unacceptable in my opinion.
    Ford has lost me, and I was a long time customer, who owned numerous vehicles that had the blue oval on the grill.

    My F-150 leaked like crazy around the third break light. Ford didn't offer a new gasket. Had to buy the whole assembly.
