jackelope, if I understand it correctly those black things on the top of the front fenders are removeable, yes?  Is there any chance you could take a pic or two with them removed or are they not that easy to remove and put back on??  Thanks

I can't remove them. One is sold and one is a Ford factory demo and if something breaks, there aren't any parts available to fix them. With my luck I'd break them, regardless of how easy they come off.

Understandable.  Thanks anyway. 

I am curious though, with them removed is there some filler piece that goes back in there to fill the gap or do you remove them and it just leaves an open gap or how does that whole process work?

What I don’t get, is why make a very capable vehicle, then sell twice as many cut down two wheel drive versions?
I see very few of the loaded out Broncos here. But have seen tons of the butt ugly base model versions that seriously are not good at anything?

Most people don't need any off road capabilities but still want an "off road" vehicle. It's like how you see so many wranglers and tacomas with shovels And gas cans bolted outside the bed around Seattle

Man oh man do I want a bronco. Do they make one that'll hold four car seats?  :chuckle:

You probably see none of the “very capable” varieties of Bronco as they’re just making landfall now. The ones you’re seeing are the sports and they’ve been out since I started this thread ish. They’re not base models. They’re just sports.

With the modular build design of the new Bronco one thing is for certain, the aftermarket market for these things is going to be huge!  I really like the different fenders they put on this concept build.

I think you can get a front wheel drive Bronco Sport.

4x4 is standard.

I was wrong a about the base model being a two wheel drive version. But damn they look like a rebirth of a Geo Tracker?

They’re small SUV sized vehicles. Super popular. About the size of an escape.

Because a ton of people will buy it, like you said. They’re in the business of selling cars, after all.

Grand Banks Bronc next to Expedition for size comparison.



Note. The sport is a much smaller/different model. Essentially it’s a different car.

You're not thinking outside the box. Two in the back seat, two on top or off the back hatch, Subaru Brat style. The kiddies will love it.  :hello:

Saw a Grand Banks on Craigslist for 72k.

Too plush of a rig for me.
People get offended at nothing at all. So, speak your mind and be unapologetic.
