    I'm in Dearborn so I should know but I don't...Why is Ford doing this? Bronco Medium and Bronco Small? Why can't they pick a new name for a completely different vehicle? Why didnt they make a "Bronco" edition Explorer with 35's and modded bumpers? My Ford employee neighbor is all jazzed about a 2.7 Bronco with "big mudders" on it. He has a 2.7 F150... I told him that he can put 35's on his truck and PROBABLY have a better vehicle overall than a Bronco.. welcome to America.. his mind was blown. He then started figuring out approach angles with his new imaginary big tires on his F150. This guy works in an office and only saw dirt roads when his kid was in boy scouts camping. He said his air dam hurts approach angles and I reminded him that they are plastic for a reason... They flex... They will flex over that big imaginary log on your imaginary safari that you're going on. Hahaha. Ford did well on marketing.

I read that the switches are silicone sealed... but is the center touchscreen also 'potted" and water proof?... LOL if it is.. i might actually be interested in a "flood vehicle"
    Willys and Rubicon package wranglers come with rock sliders.

    I agree being an avid off-roader horsepower is often the least important. I'm just saying that the Rubicon already is ahead of the Bronco in many measures of off-roading capability (articulation comes to mind), and durability, and the Ford guys admit that when they are shoved, and comes from the factory with rock sliders. The 392 puts it over the top. Everybody has an opinion, for me the 392 would be the winner.

    I agree. 450-500hp stock is enticing and the enthusiasts will crank 700-1000hp with Whipple kits just like the full size truck enthusiasts do.. Streets crawling with 9 second Jeep's!!! Bronco could do this if they were to fit a V8 in there.
