Okay? Although, when I generally don't care about something I typically don't even bother to read or respond to it.

Also, I don't back down from any debate, argument, or fight if I feel that I am correct about my opinion or a fact. It is jut not my nature, and I understand that not everyone is the same so I generally try not to chastise them for it and let them be.

I don't feel that I was wrong in stating that an IFS is not ideal for my kind of off roading and I will keep defending that opinion as long as those like Fish try to keep telling me I am wrong on what I think is best for "my" off roading. If roles were reversed and the Wrangler had the IFS and the Bronco had solid axles, then I would say that the Bronco was the better for the two for my kind of off roading.

The new Broncos are certainly bad @ss. Now if Ford can price point them to not be so ridiculously priced like the Wrangler Rubis and Gladiators they will mop up the competition!


.....we looked at "them" recently. If you think they are expensive in the US, wait till you see the Canadian price: for the base 4-door Black Diamond: $52,094 CAD! Exact same model in the US $40,685 USD ($50,470 CAD).

....anyone ever see a Brenthel Industries IFS doing the Baja at 70 MPH flying 8 feet above the desert rock? Just throw one of those super long travel front ends on a Bronco, and Bob's your uncle LOL

IFS-->

....anyone know if a good flat tow option is out there yet for a Bronco?

Here's a picture of the Bronco Raptor vs a Bronco Sasquatch. We don't need this much off road capability but the Raptor sure looks aggressive and looks like it riding on 37's.

Ford Bronco was designed and developed in Australia, but will not be sold here. Also the same development Centre is doing the new Ford Ranger and VW Amarok

This is despite the fact that the new Bronco project was largely engineered in Melbourne, since it is a derivative of the T6 Ranger project that has its homeroom base in Australia, using the basic chassis components of a truck that is obviously available in right-hand drive.

Over the years there has been constant bashing of GMs decision long ago to retire their SFAs..... Now that Ford is leaning in this direction, a lot of the same people think it is the greatest thing since sliced bread...... OK boys, welcome to the 21st century.

As far back as the 1980s Ford F250, 150, and Ranger all had IFS. A different type of design but still a IFS. In 1999 when the Super Duty line came out Ford went to a SFA on the F250.

Fish,
Was that not the "twin traction" something or other front end?
Iirc it was ok. I was seriously thing about a 96 crew cab from Ford, the 250 was a horrible turning truck with it, vs the 350 with the sofa excellent tight radius, GM ifs was in the middle. 5' or so difference between them.

Went with a GM, not smartest choice, but still wish I had it, even with the 6.5TD.

I don't recall the names of those Ford suspension but "twin traction" sounds familiar, but the F350 had a solid axle. Back then I had a '87 and '92 Chevy trucks.
