This thing goes where Hummers only dream.

no the Bronco was/is the most capable rig ever produced for the public, the jeep rubicon is just taking Ford parts and sticking them under it.

now what you need to do is lift it and get some tires for it so you arent looking like one of those ****** bags that think just cause they bought a Rubicon they can wheel the Rubicon/MOAB/etc places. Man do I hate those people. Kinda like the stock wrangler I saw some teenage girl driving at my old apartment that said upside down on the windshield, "if you can read this, roll me over"

now we know she will never be in a situation like that.

oh and dont take this as im calling you a douch bag

I am a douchbag. It's sitting on 285/75R16 Interco TrXuS MT's (equivalent to 33's) with 2.25" of lift, fully skidded underneath.

I am not sure the axles and transfercase could be called Ford parts.

The 4L engine is the old AMC block - not sure that is Ford

The tranny isnt' Ford, is it?

Springs, shocks not Ford

Frame isn't Ford.

So this is clearly a mix-match of American and German parts put toghether in Toledo Ohio...



The only thing I know is originally Ford is the 7 slot grille design

the axles are Ford.

didnt say just cause it isnt modded that makes you a ******bag, its the ones that buy a stock jeep and think they can be in the tough truck competitions and act like that. a lot of jeep owners of this bad attitude that many people in the 4x4 community dont like

its actually amazing what makes capable offroad vehicles

my buddy had an 88 Toyota 4runner, 5-speed, and dead stock, the only thing that could get him stuck was mud

he put a 4" lift on it, and some 33"s on it, and it NEVER got stuck, we put that truck through hell (i even took it offroading, and i didnt know what i was doing really) and we couldnt get it stuck unless we wanted to have it buried to the windows in mud

In off-roading, parts can only take you so far, its really about the abilities of the driver. I great driver driving a stock truck could go farther than a terrible driver in a rock buggy.

which is true, but for my non-driving *** to be able to get through all kinds of ****, i think he had a very good, forgiving setup

he also was running on two open diffs, no lockers

SFA 4Runners are very nice.

But back to the axle issue.

Dana is a Ford company?

Yeah I see what you are saying. But there are people like that who buy any 4x4 I am sure. Jeeps are capable, but not that capable. Jeeps (and all 4x4s really) are built, not bought, some folks just don't get that. Heck, most people who buy Rubicons just buy them because it is the top of the line Jeep, and probably have no intention of doing anything worese than driving a dirt road on the way to the mall. I don't know, I am just rambleing, but I will say, if I had the cash, I would buy a rubi in a sec. Would it stay stock for very long? Not if I can help (and afford) it.

yeah i was kinda ranting there.

you can buy a built rig, hell if i can get away with buying a rig that is built up, that saves me the time and money in the long run. but you will never have the satisfaction of building one, busting your knuckles when you wheel it. Personally i wouldnt ever buy one. I dont care for them, yeah Jeeps are very capable rigs, but because those jeepers think a fullsize cant wheel with them i love being able to stay right there with them, just wish i was a bit thinner

Haha, trust me, I love full sizes as well, I would take a Bronco in a second. I just like Jeeps more. If I could have my way, I would keep my truck AND have a Jeep. A full size is just as fun off road as a jeep is.

Full Size vehicles can't go most of the places we go. At least without damaging themselves or the trail. But, I'd take a FS Bronco over a Libby everyday
