Someone will inevitably take a brand new one and do a SFA conversion on it.

Why not have the option? Long travel coil solid axle for the crawler guys. (The 12 people with more dollars than sense who will go thrash a new $70k suv, right off the showroom floor)
And then have an IFS for everyone else , the 95% soccer mobile pavement pounders and the wanna be Baja racers.
That would be cool!
BTW, the price and popularity of Jeeps (wranglers) about makes me want to barf!
I’ve quit, not giving back the stupid Jeeper wave when wanna be overland rock crawler guys give me the wave when I have the old CJ5 out. Now I just flip them the bird if they’re driving to the grocery store with their hi lift jack, matching fuel can, shovel with a painted handle, them plastic get unstuck boards and the other 10 grand worth of bolt on accessories!

I’m an equal opportunity offender though. I dont jeeper wave at real jeepers either. Lol


You need all that cr@p bolted on to go overlanding. Otherwise you're just car camping.

A SAS is a big job. That's why it would have been really cool to have a from the factory Bronco with two solid axles rolling on 37s.

The regular Broncos personally look really weak to me. It reminds me of a shorted up Ford Flex which was a terrible looking vehicle. The Raptor version however does look great and apparently built to back up the looks. They will no doubt sell everyone they can build. I am seeing some of these Broncos advertised in the mid 70's which seems very crazy to me, but I would guess the Raptor version will be over 100k. It wont be cheap to look that cool.

Have you seen a Sasquatch package Bronco in real life? it has a ton of presence.

I quite like mine.

I do like the new Bronco's. I currently own two Jeeps and the Bronco got my attention. However, whoever designed their soft top must have been on the juice. I have seen several around town and they look all wrinkled like they are too big. Looks terrible. They don't look like they fit well. My 2015 Jeep has the premium soft top and it still looks brand new. Even after sitting outside in the Florida sun for 7+ years.

Agreed, I had not seen that version, it does look good.
