Pretty much a chopped up Ford Minivan... I'm actually kind of impressed with what he's done to it, lol!
Perhaps. But it looks like shit.

The new Bronco is nothing more than a glorified Raptor.
I'm team Jeep all the way, but a glorified Raptor wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.

That's the point... Check out his other videos, you'll realize its comedy and not his real life.

It is a cryptic message, let's unpack it;

"I Fink So"
I = Independent
F = Front
S = Suspension
Not the end of the world. But still a solid axle is going to give you that rock crawler advantage over the Bronco.

Honestly did you expect anything less from them and their commercials. I mean really they have one on order. They make money on YT and now they are going to go get a whole entirely different group of subscribers. No way they were going to say anything but great things about their new purchase. the other dude in the video gets PAID from Ford. Not going to be an honest review there either.

I am waiting for an unbiased opinion from someone who has wheeled a JLUR moderately and then gets in one of these NOT PAID, NOT INVITED (to come drive and make sure it is a glowing review).
Yeah, just more marketing hype around the Bronco Concept vehicle... Ford furnished Doug DeMuro with an undriveable shell Bronco for one of his reviews. At least Ford has now been able to get these things to move under their own power.

Broncos may end up being really awesome, and IMO they do look like they will be sharp. But Ford is still in the 100% marketing phase at this point.

So I saw in Portland today. Outer Banks and Big Bend. I have a 2018 JLUR. I have a reservation but plan to also keep the Jeep. I left disappointed. Biggest reason is like others have said - lots of plastic. Maybe production models will be a bit better? I think I’ll hold off for now. Maybe a future test drive will blow me away?

Just saw a video about the 10 things hated about the Bronco, by that particular youtuber. Most of them were trivial, but one caught my attention. The lower front shock mounting studs and nuts hang, as the lowest point, below the lower a-frame. The Bronco in question was a Badlands with sasquatch package. Imagine how fun of a ride home it'll be with the front shocks hanging useless from the upper mounts. 😕

Pony boy? No. Some guy with a beard and glasses. Kept trying to sell me on a VPN.

Actually, I forgot that YouTube saves ones watch list. Just remembered my wife asking about all the ass shaking videos mixed in with Jeeps. Lol

Be right back.

Edit: So 9 minor complaints and 1 actual problem... plus 20% of the video dedicated to VPN advertisement...
