Got the update (and also a text from my sales guy) that the bronco arrived today along with over 20 other vehicles. Now it has to be inspected and he said it would be a few days. Man I hate waiting, at least it is here. I will stop by the dealership on my way home and take some pics.

Well the sales dude pushed it out today. Cool thing is he wasn't even supposed to work today. Worked some magic.

Now I have to figure out all the cool crap in it. Did drive it 25 miles around town getting a feel for it on the road. So far love it.

So far I have driven it about 50 miles. It does have a Bronco II feel, but also a little feel of the 2021 F150 I drove for a couple of weeks for work. Overall very enjoyable to drive. Easy to drive as well. I cant wait to get it on the dirt. The real rocks are too far away to test very well.

Not even close. The opposite, I'm buying stuff (or planning purchases) everyday. We are headed to moab over new years to test her out like we used to wheel the B2. Can't wait.

Sorry about the very long delay. Busy as hell the last month or so.

So I watched your review of deep snow on bronco6g. Considering the soft compound, when the tires do wear out, I'm going with a coil over lift of about 3" and 37s. I warned the wife already.

Merry Christmas! Been busy as heck myself lately. We just got hit with a nice winter blast. Roads are about as bad as they can get. Bronco has just done awesome in all conditions. I'm really liking these Goodyear territory tires.

37's would be awesome. I WANT 37's, but I don't think I'll actually do it. The reality is, it does everything I need it to in stock form. The weak steering rack and tie rods sure have me concerned though. I'll be wanting to get that upgraded for sure.

Merry Christmas as well. Hopefully all is well with your family.

Hopefully by the time I am ready to do more to the bronco, all the bugs will be found and worked out. Then at that time you never know what I will do with it.

So just got home from Moab. Overall very impressed with the bronco. The only thing I can kinda complain about is visibility over the bumper on steep inclines. Declines are better, but on the way up the sky is all you can see unless you watch the screen! Which feels weird to do while driving. It will be much easier with the doors off and to be able to look out there. Way too cold for that. Great on slickrock and also in snow (I know you already tested that Matt). The deepest we were in was 18 - 30 inch drifts.

Awesome! Good to see you back out there. I think visibility over the hood seems decent, but the lack of visibility of my tires when looking out the window could be improved. Not sure if it's just the big flares blocking my view or what. Doors off should be fine. I feel like I can thread the needle with my EB, but not as well with the '21.

Great pics!

So I thought the same thing about the wheels. I figure that I will normally take the flares off while wheeling and when warm/hot doors too. Just have to be sure to not go through mud or it will get everywhere. Luckily for me, I hate mud.
