  1. My theory is that it will be very similar to the 4-door Jeep Wrangler with a solid axle up front, a convertible top, removable doors and ripe for bolt on upgrades. I would think that the direction a lot of the restomod Broncos are headed is a good indicator of what the market is looking for. It might be a little more tame out of the gate so it's attractive to a wide audience but that will give them room to improve it over the future model years. What does everyone else think, it would be interesting to get everyone's opinion and then see what it really turns out to be. Dana
  2. FORD At a press conference today, Ford gave us an outline of its next few years, including a look at the 2020 Bronco. It's just a teaser of a truck under a cover right now, but it gives us a hint of the size and proportions of the new 4x4. Ford also announced that it will build a hybrid version of the Bronco, and that it's working on a new yet-unnamed small off-roader to slot below the Bronco. This is our first real look at the 2020 Bronco, even though there's not much to see. When Ford first announced in 2017 that it was bringing the famous 4x4 SUV back, it only confirmed the name. The image reveals the Bronco to have a boxy, upright shape, a short-ish wheelbase, and minimal overhangs. We do know that it'll challenge the all-conquering Jeep Wrangler and that it's based on the 2019 Ranger. FORD We don't know what to expect from Ford's upcoming baby off-roader, shown here in red, but from what we see here it seems likely that it'll rival the Jeep Renegade. Ford global markets chief Jim Farley says all of this is part of an effort to increase the automaker's off-road presence. "Ford helped start the off-road phenomenon and has majored in off-road capability for decades–from the Bronco to the Raptor," Farley said in a press release. "Now, we’re ready to reclaim our rightful place as the off-road vehicle leader" In other words, Ford is serious about taking the fight to Jeep. At the press conference, Ford had some other news to share regarding future products, revealing plans for a new performance-oriented Explorer ST to follow in the footsteps of the first Ford Performance SUV, the Edge ST. The automaker also reiterated its plans to bring hybrid drivetrains to the F-150, Mustang, Bronco, Explorer and Escape, saying that the hybrid Mustang would "be all about delivering V8-like performance with more low-end torque."

  3. I noticed a few days ago that a lot of the older images on the site in the gallery were missing so I contacted Invision. It turned out that the images were lost during the upgrade to the new forum version and they were able to recover them, big thanks to their great support! Let me know if you notice any further issues with images missing. Thanks, Dana

    New Clubs Feature

    Check out this new clubs feature we just added, let me know what you think... http://broncozone.com/clubs/ Dana
  5. OK you guys have been running this pretty well, but here is an idea to make sure things don't stagnate. I say everyone who wants to be featured post a few pics and people can vote for who they want by posting a vote under the nomination, then if someone gets a few pages of votes then one of the mods can pin that post and the truck owner can convert the initial post in the topic to a full feature with a ton of pics and description. We can keep that up till there is another contender and so on. Sound good? Dana

    The upgrade went south the first time around so we had to restore from a backup so there was about 8-12 hours of activity that was lost. Thanks, Dana

  14. Here is a post that was emailed to me by a gentleman who wanted to help out but not register... Try (lubrication) before you pry. Pull out the dipstick and turn it so you don't lose the drip of oil that comes with it out of the crankcase. Open the passenger door and carefully reach with the dipstick – still turning it so the drip doesn't fall and being careful not to get the dipstick over the upholstery. Place the oily end of the dipstick directly into the key slot (a second person might be handy to help with the aiming here) allowing the drip of oil that came from the crank case to go into the key slot. You can also transfer oil from the dipstick directly to the key. Return the dipstick to the engine compartment. Take your key and repeatedly insert it into the key slot, flipping it over and pushing it in and out about 100 times. Give the oil a few minutes to work its way into the cylinder. Try to start the vehicle. If your truck is like the Bronco I was trying to start, this is where the ignition lock behavior returns to normal. EXCEPT: after this procedure the key will be covered with oil and dirt every time you remove it from the cylinder. You're going to want to repeatedly put it in and take it out and clean it off as much as you can or the ignition key will spread motor oil everywhere. Cheers!

    SuperMotors.net Acquisition

    Hey Rob, It uses about 2 Terabytes right now, definitely quite a bit... the bigger feat is figuring out how to keep up with the archiving incremental backups! It is also running on a stout database server with SSD drives. We are working on a whole new version of the site with more social interaction that should be going live very soon. If anyone wants to be on the beta tester list let me know here. Thanks, Dana
