We’ve been dealing with FCA products for the past 13 years because Ford refused to make the Bronco. Can you blame us for being crazy? :LOL:

Heck NO. My 71' Bronco came with three on a tree so I really hope the new bronco has that option lol, thinking anti theft device.

I love my Jeep and 99% will keep it for years but that one percent that makes me think........
Someone posted being able to store the doors in the back of the Bronco! Now that intrigues me. I love my open air naked Jeep but many a beautiful day won’t take my doors off even if it’s a 20-30 mile trip because although it’s a nice Spring/Summer morning, when you’re ready to head home 8, 9, 10 at night you don’t know if it’s going to get chilly or if you may hit a late storm.
This ^ allows me to only use my tube doors locally. I alone would chance it but the wife and moms? Can’t do it.

Hey Nick is that a sneak peek at the Bronco manual trans? If so what’s the “C” for on the shifter?
Yessir. Take a look in the top right, you can see “Bron” on the dash.

The C is a crawl ratio. Basically think of it as being an extra low first gear for off road use only. We don’t know exactly how low of a ratio it would be but I’d expect it to make up for the Bronco probably not getting a 4:1 t-case.

That my good friend is the crawler gear that’s rumored on the manual.

Is that a push button transfer case shifter? If a manual transfer case shifter isn’t available, I am out. I had a push button transfer case shifter get stuck in 4 low in the middle of a Nellis AFB one time. I tried everything, but it would budge. I had to drive 40 miles in 4 low back the the car rental place. This was before cellphones. Also, ironically, it was a Ford (Explorer).

Thanks for the response guys, and I have to say that “crawl” gear is very interesting.

It is. Keep in mind the technology has advanced greatly, and while I personally would like a manual shifter I am fine with the push button.

I hear you, but if a manual transfer case shifter gets stuck, you can rock the vehicle while you try to force it. If it’s push button, your options are limited. Hopefully, a manual shifter is available.
