The Eruption Green is a sweet color!

Quoted from dmacy:

I don’t have a Bronco but can chime in with the 2.3 in the Ranger. We wanted manual but that isn’t an option on the Ranger so I can share that the 10 speed auto is fantastic and pairs well with the 2.3l. It’s always ready to move and never feels delayed or sluggish. At all. The auto has been proven in both the F150 and mustangs behind supercharged V8’s reliably. Our ranger is Lariat FX4 4wd so heaviest of all trims. It seems 23-25 mpg with mixed driving. Towed twice with an open car trailer with 1,000 lbs to total about 2,500 lbs. Absolutely no issues. I’m a car guy that is used to having high power/torque dailies and fun cars. The 4 cylinder isn’t lacking. YMMV

Dave,
I must have a heavier foot than you
I only get 19-21 mpg
That said like Dave I’m used to 400+ horsepower vehicles and I’m not disappointed with my four-cylinder Ranger wish I could’ve got a manual but very pleased.My son ordered full-size two-door bronco four-cylinder manual transmission he should be getting that by the beginning of 23 fingers crossed!

I also heard that the 2.3 has most of the available torque at 3000 rpm and most say with premium it is fine even with 4 adult’s
I bet some day the manual will be very sought after.

I have my bronco and O My god I love it so very much,I can see why these are so popular,and I could only get the 2.3 and never thought I would be satisfied but even a guy that has owned r8,s and I have an 800 hp roush mustang I am completely satisfied with the 2.3 And it does not need any more power for me but I am getting the ford racing tune that bring the 2.3 up to the 6 bangers power levels with a warranty,it 895.00 and I really don’t need it but what the hell..I don’t know how they make that little motor feel like a v8.mabey the 10 speed and the rear end ect,I am impressed.

I love it so much.

Beautiful color, not available in 2021. You CAN replace the OB sticker with a script "Bronco" if you want. These are available in black, chrome, several colors.

Done along with a stubby antenna,I also bought a tire cover but I am not sure what are owner’s thoughts about tire covers?

#60 42 days ago

What options are out there to lock the spare tire. Is it still the lug nut with the special socket you keep with the tire changing tools? Those aren’t too hard remove. A battery operated impact wrench and a socket removes them easily.

I believe there’s a key to get the tire off

There would have to be a hole in the tire cover, the rear camera goes through the center of the spare.

Brother in law just got a Wildtrack and all I saw was 3 regular lug nuts holding it on. Maybe I missed something. Very nice vehicle by the way.
My question was how to keep the spare from being ripped off?

They are locking lugs, there is a “key” that you need to remove them that comes in the Jack kit. A thief would have to have that key, which isn’t too hard to come by. There are aftermarket lug locks that you could buy for cheap.

Edit: Actually looking into it, locking lugs were a $90 option on some trim levels

I’ll check it out again but they looked like normal lug nuts. $90 to secure a $500+? rim and tire seems worthwhile. The thing looks pretty expensive.
