Sure, works just as good without scary slide and forehead boot print!

All I said was that the Easter bunny at the Menlo Park mall was more convincing and he just jumped the railing and knocked me down.

They are functional... can be used to tie things on the roof rack.

They call then trail sights... lets the driver have a visual of the front corners.

What are the hood handles for? To help yourself up if you fall down? I'm old, but not that old!
They are primarily there for limb risers (cables that run from the hood to the roof to force limbs and branches up and over the vehicle) but can be used for tie downs and corner reference points as note by Uncle Gump.

Rumbled into town and caught the Bronco sitting there all unawares yesterday so I took some comparison pictures with it since I have done it with every other vehicle I own.

How is it even 4wd without hubs?! (yes that is the same pig he fell in love with in Indiana)



Them 2drs are dinky...



From being stuck in Purgatory waiting on the improved hardtop I could tell she had been sitting awhile, most of the lettering had faded off the labels on the plastic seat covers.



The roof material texture was surprisingly smooth. Not sure why but I guess I had it pictured being more like a cooler or plastic folding table or something.







My brother did the PDI on it today, he rated it 4.5 stars. It drove pretty good but he thinks it could be a little tippy if someone jumps in it and doesn't appreciate it for what it is (not a crossover) and think the swinging rear door with flip up glass could be weird but said a person might get used to it.

Hey, mine is weirder than that, I have a tailgate in the mix too. I do wish the glass would open before the swingout like a topper on a pickup though.

They changed the standard front bumper on us. We went from the modular steel bumper to the steel "capable" bumper. Capable looks like the standard one but with with recovery points and as far as I can tell can't accept the winch. Modular is a $500 upgrade...

Not sure what the plan is on the bumper yet, nice thing about getting the capable bumper and upgrading the bumper is it is wired for foglights though.

Boing. I haven't seen a 2 door in person yet but there was a 4 door floating around at McKie... pretty cool. They just got a Maverick in yesterday too.

Keep your mind like an umbrella, it only works if its open... Continually learning.
Drove by the local dealer today and had a quick glance of a not so small baby Bronco on some really large tires. :unsure: When I get the chance I will head back for a closer look.
