Anyone else been looking at these and seriously considering buying one? I'm looking at the Big Bend edition, really don't need it built for off road, did that to my 1997 Wrangler (3.5 Black Diamond lift, Detroit Trutrac in rear diff. (limited slip) as well as 33" tires and regeared to 3.73 from 4.10, all that and barely got it dirty, worried about scratching it ) and this one is only for on road use. Dealer has one for 34K.

I'm not usually a new car buyer but I'm finally able to plunk down some money on something new and reduce my payments to something not very noticeable every two weeks, might as well go for it.

Some have opined that buying a brand new car is the worst investment you can make due to the rapid depreciation factor. I don't know. I kind of like the peace of mind knowing that if anything goes wrong with it in the first three years I'm not responsible.

I used to buy a car and keep it for years until it started having issues. I liked having several years without a car payment, but then my brother talked me into leasing and turns out my wife and I prefer that instead. We lease our cars and get a new one every three years.

I checked one out at the Mecum Collector Car Auction in Kissimmee back in January:

Its like whoever designed this, asked a bunch of wrangler owners what their beef was with their vehicles, and the guy fixed that. It can even climb better than the wrangler!

That's sweet, I used to work with one of the Mecum's of that family, albeit only a distant cousin, he still had a tiny share of that collection, something like a percentage of one percent, not enough to live on but a decent monthly check. Dude was a real hardhead, always getting into it with management, they fired him eventually.

I'm not too hot on that Bronco, but these things can be configured in more ways than about any vehicle I've ever seen before.

So they say, but not confirmed at Moab yet. ;)

What hurts with leasing is the hefty initial down payment otherwise I agree.

Fuck Y'all I'm From Texas!
I wont buy the first year of any vehicle.
But yeah I like em a lot!! Especially in the higher end models that come with 35's.
Love the idea of being able to take off the body panels if you plan on getting into some gnarly shit!!!
And that they were able to get front wheel travel in a IFS that rivals solid axle travel is bad ass.

Ugly thing, like almost all modern trucks.

I was considering the Bronco. My wife bought a 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee last year, so this year it's my turn. And then I ordered a Tesla Cybertruck, the dual motor AWD. Still, the new Bronco is pretty cool. If you can afford it then why not go for it?

What is it with conservitards account like calling someone female is an insult?

I'm a 53 year old white male, BTW.

Doesn't look "manly", it looks like a hot wheels toy.
