Even the regular ones are pretty chunky.

Ours will weigh about the same as my F-150. I havent figured it out yet either.

One has a huge 9.75 rear axle, 8.8 front axle, steel everything but hood and a V8 with a cast iron block. Little Bronco with a little D44 based rear axle, small front axle, lots of aluminum in the body, all aluminum 4cyl and a plastic roof weighs the same. :icon_confused:

I still think all I'd want would be the base 2 door Bronco...hell even the base model Bronco has 100x more buttons, switches, and knobs than my 88 RBV LOL.

A lady at work was saying her sister got a new car a couple weeks ago...didn't come with an owner's manual, you have to sit in the car with it running and read the manual on the center stack touch screen LOL...so...with all the electronics in today's cars why is the owner's manual not in PDF searchable format HAHA!!! Can you imagine having absolutely no clue how that touch screen stuff works, then the dealer tells you to just look it up in the owner's manual located in that touch screen LOL. So, no I guess that's why some vehicles have touch screens the size of a laptop LOL.

A good salesperson will explain that to the customer before they leave.

The trick is finding one...
