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.

ah okay. I'll check this out.

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

This last Saturday there were a number of Broncos in various configurations at the dunes. They seem to easily navigate Silver Lake (as the Wrangler does). I am not a fan of the box body look nor the plastic/gimmicky interior. Jeep Wrangler definitely has the more mature interior components and feel. Was seriously thinking Bronco because of the initial promo video, but glad I decided "Jeep".
