    Anyone using 245/60/R18 with stock wheels?

    Hey y'all, Has anyone else upgraded their BS with 245/60/R18 with the stock wheels? From the old threads, seems like this size is the max without a lift. Trying to see how wide it is and if there is noticeable rubbing during normal turns and load. Got 235/60/R18 now, if you have 245 let me know...

    smart fog lights

    If your BS is equipped with fog lights, did you know that they are programmed/smart to turn on automatically to assist you on turns to make your path brighter when it’s dark?

    Bigger engine for BS

    I was cleaning both our vehicles today and saw that my rav4 engine bay is full and my BB has a ton more space inside. (I took pics of both of them) Anyone else think that the BS can fit a bigger 2.5 to 3.0L engine? There's plenty of room and engineers can make a new innovation for sure to make...

    Bronco sport two door+manual

    I was wondering if Ford will make a 2door BS. It will resemble the original bronco, maybe put a removable hardtop on it and 1.5L turbo should be enough for it but yeah 2.0L for upgrade works too. Maybe put a manual transmission option, we don’t have to worry about the goat modes anymore and...

    Hello, I've been using the stock R18 wheels with 225/60/R18 A/T tires for a while now but wanted to change to bigger tires. Is it okay to upgrade to 235/60/R18 without lift upgrade? (sorry newbie question)

    quick easy wiper/windshield cleanup?

    Anyone else having a hard time cleaning the dust/leaf gunk etc collecting on the windshield/wiper area? The car design in that part makes you open up the hood first before you can lift the wipers to get a good clean in there :whew:

    G.O.A.T Mode Shifting points

    I have been driving sport mode all the time and seems like in the lower speeds (<=45mph) the BS is restricted to run up to 4th or 5th gear...It’s always 45mph @3000rpm @4th or 5th gear. Anyone else notice this? Does anyone know what the shifting points are for the BS goat modes? Thanks

    BS hood feels like it's going to fly out during car wash air dry part

    We've been driving around our BB for 2 weekends now around Oregon and Washington doing 55-65 on slopes and 70/80 on hiways, no noise or problem what-so-ever. Then next day, before going to work, took it for a car wash and during the drying part, the hood felt like the screws would let go and...
