It's home!

Several sheriffs heard it was in and showed up at the dealer to check it out. They are going to buy Broncos for Search and Rescue.

So you have had it for several days. What do you think?

Loving it! I'm compiling a list of things for further discussion. I'll be firing up a different YouTube channel for Bronco stuff.

The 2 door is both bigger and smaller than my Early Bronco and Bronco II. The track width is really wide! Like full-size wide! It doesn't feel wide though. Interior cargo space is extremely limited on the 2 door Bronco. Taking it on the Costco run nearly resulted in a divorce :laugh: . Up front it's plenty roomy. All in all it "feels" very Bronco to me. My kids joke they have to parkour into the back seat. Definitely the least accessible of my Broncos.

I'm getting my break in miles in, so haven't been off-road yet. The one pedal/trail control I think is going to be awesome. I think it will really bridge the gap between manual and auto.

I'd read reports of the Goodyear Sasquatch tires picking up rocks, and holy cow they weren't joking! I turned around in a gravel parking lot and it was clearing rocks out for miles! So fair warning to anyone, keep your distance from any sassy Bronco.

Tomorrow is your bday. Better start nesting.

Thats great to hear about loving it. I went back and forth between 2 and 4 door, and ultimately my wife won the discussion and the 4 door won. I LOVE the look of the 2 door. I do think that 4 door will be much more practical (if a bronco can be practical) in the long run.

I also noticed about the tires when I went on a test drive of the mannequin bronco at our dealership. It was kicking rocks forever it seemed. Will have to put a clear wrap on the rear of both from and rear wheel wells.

Yes the d-day is tomorrow. All finances are all in order (sold a car to free up the monthly payment) and the garage is ready.

Yes the 4 door is definitely more practical. As a family of 5 it was a tough decision. The reality is the 4 door would only be slightly smaller than our f-150 and there still wouldn't be enough room for all our crap.

WOW, I wonder if they take this photo after QC is finished? That is totally awesome. Cool to see where it was born.

Man in production on 10/19 but still nothing updated. I know I still have a day or 2 but that doesn't help the wait. I know you understand Matt.

It's happening. You should get your email soon!

I love driving this thing! One of the best features that I'd didn't know I wanted is the keyless entry/push to start. Key just stays in my pocket from unlocking to starting. The Mrs is ready to trade in the f-150 for that feature alone.

That is awesome, I am glad its as good as it is. My wife also is way more excited than I thought she would be to have a bronco again.

My wife was never crazy about driving the other Broncos, but she likes this one.

My wife always loved the B2. I think it is because I had it when we started dating and has great memories in it.

She actually cried when I sold it. I was close...
