Whatever lets you sleep at night apparently, my dude. If you can't acknowledge that the world is inherently different from the 1960s, I got nothin' else for ya. Seems any "answers" you're willing to accept are pretty specific to your cranium.
please tell me your going with bronco so I dont have to see you on the trails I go on. :)

That's a good question. I don't expect the 2-door to sell very well. Maybe 20,000-30,000/year. I guess it's kind of like the Wrangler - they cant bring back the Bronco without the 2-door.
But with the first bronco they both were two doors and yet the jeep succeeded where the bronco didnt. Will this be a sign of the future and if not why not?

I dont think one can argue the jeep was better back than. Bronco had a VERY sweet offering, more than any better stuff they might have now.

Personally I think the 2 door bronco will sell better than the jeep version...initially.... It's longer and appears to be laid out better as a result...but we dont know yet really.

I think you and the previous poster might be right about needing a 2 door despite the number sold. It's a marketing thing. Likely most want a 2 door but it just isnt practical for most.

I don't see that kind of damage on these stock Jeeps. But everyone on the 6G site is claiming that a Jeep would be similarly banged up. I think that they are in denial.
Those pictures look like they banged them up against everything they could find. The videos show them struggling to get through the obstacle.

Friend said most certainly especially during the winter months when the mounds of snow are there.

Is that for me? Yes I’d get a Bronco before a Rubicon. To think I made an in person offer on a Rubicon on June 8th.

As you show the JL struggling on obstacles. Interesting.
As for the scars, the jk was too wide. The JL is wider and the bronco is wider yet. Of course the JL will get through the narrow trails better. I did see a JLU with Broncos, disappointed they did not also bring a 2dr Rubicon to compare.

The videos have a clear and classic rip sound of the tires rubbing when they backed down the obstacles they couldn't climb. Lol

There are already countless videos of factory Jeeps on the Rubicon and completing it with more ease and less body damage. But we already knew that. The Bronco, being a IFS vehicle is going to have a harder time in the rocks.
