    Tire Decisions 235s vs 245s

    Yes, that is what I'm running.

    HRG 1.25" Lift vs. Woolworth Motorsports 1.25" Lift (Badlands) (1.5" For Other Trims)

    Yes, it is. The HRG lift is 1.5 inches for a Base, Big Bend, and Outer Banks while it is 1.25 inches for the Badlands. You are correct.

    HRG 1.25" Lift vs. Woolworth Motorsports 1.25" Lift (Badlands) (1.5" For Other Trims)

    So I'm running into a little bit of a conundrum here. Another company based out of North Carolina (HRG Engineering) has developed and released a 1.25" level-lift kit (which includes sway-bar end links, sub-frame spacers, camber bolts, etc.) for the Bronco Sport Badlands which is the same amount...

    Front bumper from 4WP

    This is what I would like to see for the Bronco Sport: A full HD off-road bumper with winch mount that gets rid of all cheap black plastic "bumper" material. If it messes with my Adaptive Cruise Control, then I say "so be it". The cutting makes the Tacoma look better and I think getting rid of...

    Front bumper from 4WP

    It would work just like the aftermarket Tacoma bumpers, and you're right, it means lots of cutting. This is fine with me in order to get an HD bumper and upgraded/additional skids on the front of my Badlands. On the Tacoma, you essentially cut the whole lower portion of the stock fascia along...

    Vacation in Colorado (Boreas Pass)

    Picture overload: this is Boreas Pass and is a 19 mile, easy-rated trail that anyone can do and the scenes are breathtaking. Pictures just don't do it justice.

    Bronco Badge of Honor Program

    I know this was a topic brought up long, long ago but for those who were interested in such a program like myself, one already exists. This program is based off the honor system it seems as it doesn't confirm routes or GPS coordinates on AllTrails, OnX Off Road, etc. Also, if you have done a...

    Vacation in Colorado (Kingston Peak)

    I had a wonderful time, but you know how a woman's glare can pierce into your soul when you do something unexpected lol? Only ladies are allowed to be unpredictable 😄 🤣

    Vacation in Colorado (Cottonwood Pass and Red Hill Road)

    Here are the only shots of a combination of Cottonwood Pass and Red Hill in Gypsum, CO. Disclaimer: Cottonwood Pass is a partially paved/dirt road that can be taken on by even a sedan but Red Hill Road is an optional offshoot that will require 4x4, possibly lockers, and definitely high...

    Vacation in Colorado (Indiana Creek Road)

    So the wife and I attempted to do an easy rated trail yesterday evening in Indiana Creek Road outside of Breckenridge, CO. What we got to see of the 1.8 mile trail was beautiful but I would actually rate this trail easy-moderate as others did as well on AllTrails primarily due to its rocky and...

    Vacation in Colorado (Kingston Peak)

    On our way to Loch Lomond trailhead, I took a wrong turn (because both Google lady's and my navigational skills on the trail stink) and ended up on the Kingston Peak trail, which I believe is a Jeep Badge of Honor trail, just saying. We conquered this Moderate-rated trail by AllTrails standards...

    Vacation in Colorado (Off-Roading Loch Lomond Trail!)

    Loch Lomond: My wife and I went for it in the Bronco Sport Badlands. We decided to try and head to Loch Lomond near Saint Mary's Glacier, CO. In AllTrails, this trail is listed as moderate and the pictures show nothing but the beautiful lake, streams, and waterfalls. It's almost like people...

    @Outbound Exploration Bronco Sport Build & Trail Pics

    Do you mind me asking how much the swing-out, hitch-mounted spare tire carrier costed you guys? I would love to buy one in the near future.

    What did you do TO your Bronco Sport today?

    I think there might be a little less room in the spare compartment on a Badlands if I remember right. Don't quote me on that though. The good news is that it still fits even though the cargo floor is raised approximately 0.5", and when the back seats are folded down, the cargo floor is now flush...

    What did you do TO your Bronco Sport today?

    Thanks! I used an automotive black silicone inside the tubing and also used it like a locktite on the threads of the bolts holding the brackets on. You put so much of it on, that when you assemble the parts, the extra oozes out causing a seal on the inside and outside. The bedliner was then...

    What did you do TO your Bronco Sport today?

    I received the deflators and portable compressor for the tires, I added the Thule HD cross-bar system, I fully weatherized a roof rack with spray-in bedliner and installed it on the roof, and lastly I added 245/65R17 BFG T/A Ko2's including the spare (which fits). The only thing I'm missing is a...

    I broke this part of my ford bronco sport, is there a metal option? the material is similar to cardboard ... help

    Skids are made usually out of 1/4" aluminum or stainless steel so they won't rust. Don't quote me on this but I believe the skids under the BL and FE are aluminum.
