    1st Oil Change on Bronco Sport Badlands -- Thoughts and Things Learned!

    Well, this thread has devolved a bit. :crazy: I generally go with manufacturer recommendations, until seeing evidence to do something different. I previously owned a 2017 Ford Escape, 1.5L engine, and followed the recommended oil change intervals. NEVER again on an ecoboost engine will I wait...

    Off-roading tips?

    The badlands has some pretty good factory installed armor plates, but it also leaves other areas completely unprotected. Your trim has even less protection. My best advice is to get under your vehicle and figure out what is protected and what isn't. Know the clearance that you have on those...

    Off-roading on Elephant Hill Trail in Canyonlands, UT -- trip report & mods that mattered most

    Prototype looks good! However, I'm concerned about the apparent lack of attachment points on the manufactured plate. For those who haven't actually removed the cover themselves yet, all of the attachments points are pretty weak screws. Using the OEM mounts, you would have to use all of them...

    Off-roading on Elephant Hill Trail in Canyonlands, UT -- trip report & mods that mattered most

    You can probably get the 245's on there without the lift kit, maybe tight in some areas, but pretty sure there's some folks on here that have done it. I installed the lift kit myself, there doesn't seem to be many shops in town that can/will do good work. Don't get me started on getting an...

    Off-roading on Elephant Hill Trail in Canyonlands, UT -- trip report & mods that mattered most

    Nice!! Yeah, that bash plate in the front really came in handy. Spent $200 to avoid having to replace a $650 front plastic bumper. Would have really f***d it up had I not had it- especially going down obstacles. Not sure why Ford choose to leave such an obvious place unprotected. What trail...

    Problem getting strut back in from aborted lift install, Axle issue?

    When I did my lift, my boot did NOT look that stretched when I was putting the strut back in. I had to use some elbow grease to get the arm lined up, but I was able to get it lined up. In that top pic, you should be able to move that arm in and out with only light to moderate effort, but it...

    Air Conditioning Running in Freezing Weather

    Most newer cars will automatically turn the A/C on when you engage defrost mode. This is for humid climates as the A/C actually de-humidifies the air being pumped in, making your windshield defrosting more effective. If you don't live/operate in a humid climate, just turn it off. If you're...

    Hankook Dynapro AT2 Extreme installed

    Loving mine! Got the same tire (245/65R17) but decided to go with the black lettering. For those not familiar, the tire comes with lettering on both sides, you get to choose white or black when you get it installed. Tire noise is negligible, and with a lift and the new tires my gas mileage is...

    Off-roading on Elephant Hill Trail in Canyonlands, UT -- trip report & mods that mattered most

    Just got back from an amazing week with my new Bronco Sport Badlands. Started off with the Off-Roadeo event in Moab, UT driving some very beautiful trails. Got rained on in Arches National Park, so had to skip Tower Arch Road. Moved onto getting snowed on in Island in the Sky in Canyonlands...

    B&O Sound - Driver Front Door Speaker Rattle/Buzz

    Exact same issue with the front right speaker buzz. Super disappointing, Ford usually has good sound systems, this one is a bit of a let down.

    Say Hello and Introduce Yourself! ?

    Recently got my Bronco Sport Badlands in! One small little outing to a couple National Parks is the only fun things I"ve done with it yet. Can't wait to take it out to Moab for the Bronco Off-roadeo in October. I traded in my 2017 Escape for it, and while I really enjoyed the Escape, and hit...
