those things are stampeding out of the plant....
This makes week 4 with no builds scheduled...

I did find this at Sam's, kinda nice to get something of a size comparison since I have yet to actually see a real Bronco. I wonder how close the scale is between the two, Bronco is a lot bigger than I had it pictured.

That seems about right. The First 4 door Bronco I saw, Not realizing it was a Bronco, I thought, "Wow, somebody built the hell outta that Jeep." Then I noticed the Bucking Bronco Emblem and it all made sense.

That one was just a Wildtrack, I think they have 33's. A Sasquatch has 35's... so they come bigger.

We did snag a topless/doorless Area 51 Badlands which is kind of the big brother to our Black Diamond.

Lead, Follow or get out of my way
Bronco truck speculation for @Uncle Gump whenever he finds time to set the paint roller down...
It hasn't been a paint roller... the place actually had a fresh coat of paint on the main floor. But I've sure had my share of the weed whacker... shovel... rake... chain saw... wheel barrow... topsoil and grass seed and dog proofing my old fence. Later this week I move to the kitchen and install a pantry... over the range microwave/exhaust and overhead cabinets. Then it's fixing some janky electrical and wire up my garage. Then pressure wash the outside... replace the porch railing and step handrail... paint the shutters. Then it's prepare a landing pad for the new shed. Then maybe I can think about doing my to do list on my truck before the trail ride.

For the Bronco Pickup...

It has to many doors for my liking... but it's a start.

So somebody tagged Mike Levine, Director of Ford Communications about it... and somehow they all got it worked out.

So if anybody else reserves a Bronco and the dealer tries to get you over a barrel... call Ford. It also kinda went viral to the point the dealer pulled their facebook page...

I work in aircraft fuel tanks for a living. Don't judge me!
The sad thing is, the car sales staff that are trying to make an honest living have to deal with the after effects of scum bags and scum bag dealers like posted above.

The above is in used car salesman territory.

I really like Texas, but something I learned real quick when I moved here is that there are some greedy fawkers here that would sell their own mother for a buck. Greed is a huge problem here.

A guy stabbing his wife's hand with his fork while she tried to grab the last pork chop is greed, and a dick move.

Can't really blame this guy though. Someone might pay his price... then the guy can order a BETTER Bronco than he had originally AND afford to put his child through college cash money 🤷‍♀️. Letting an opportunity like that pass by is a fools move.
