I haven't been paying attention, is the new Broncos body already shown? If not, the Chevy body is good camouflage.
What's with the aluminum posts?

If you can't go through it or around it, then go over it.

I haven't seen any official photos...

This is a rendering from the covered up vehicle that has been shown around here... pretty cool I think.

FWIW the current gen Everest and Ranger both have 6 lug wheels...





So is the rumor of the Bronco being on the next gen Ranger running gear true and the Ranger is going back to 5 lug wheels?

I think they're having too much fun with this development haha That truck does have a rear trailing arm set up. Wonder if that's part of what they're testing?
