    Will mountain bike fit inside without removing tires?

    I chose that configuration as the 2nd row seat back on the passenger side can be compressed a bit more when folded down than the driver side. This provides a bit more clearance for the bike seat. YMMV

    “Weather-related” can also mean disruption of the flow of parts to the plant. Key parts come from suppliers located in the US.

    Supplemental PTC Heater? Anyone have one in their BS?

    Yes, on my OB with 1.5L ecoboost. Seems to be most effective in combination with using remote start?

    Auto Hold on the Outer Banks?

    I let out a sigh of relief when I saw the ebony/roast interior in person on my OB. Much better looking than the web photos.

    Rough Country Lighting Options for 2021 Bronco Sport

    I understand not having a factory option to add upfitter switches. But, from my window sticker, what is this...and does it help with adding electrical accessories?

    Spare tire Jack accessories missing?

    My ‘tools’ are there, hiding in plain sight on my OB. Loosen the secondary wing nut holding down the jack and you’ll see them attached to the jack. And thanks for making me look. I had to put on leather gloves to get the grip necessary to remove the plastic super wing nut securing the tire.

    Bikes In the Cargo Area

    Looks like you have a Mini spare tire? That would give you some extra vertical space. My 2nd row seatbacks don’t flatten nearly that much! Watch your elbows... 😁

    Bikes In the Cargo Area

    If you have a full-size spare tire, that reduces cargo area height enough to possibly make a difference.

    Bikes In the Cargo Area

    For certain your 27.5 wheels are a bit smaller than my 700c (29.5 equivalent). 2 caveats: my OB has full-size spare tire and that raises the cargo floor, reducing available height, and I’m using my trusty Bike Tight rack, a bit taller itself than what Ford is selling. Ford’s illustrations show...

    Awaiting shipment

    About 5 days. If you have been receiving status emails from Ford, you’ll get 1 when your baby Bronco is shipped.

    Awaiting shipment

    My OB was shipped 12/15 and delivered to my dealer here in Michigan on 12/31. YMMV

    Bikes In the Cargo Area

    I’m guessing most everyone has seen the illustration of the cargo area bike rack that Ford is selling. The one with 2 bikes upright. I’ve concluded that those are either kid’s bikes, or mtb with dropper seat posts completely retracted. 🤷‍♂️ Don’t even think about trying with a large road bike...
