Alright everybody, it's been awhile. You've probably noticed that there's been a lot going on in the Bronco world this week and I wanted to make sure that we captured it all in one place. Also the winter in Michigan is getting cold and typing keeps my fingers warm.

Notes for Next Week
The content train will keep rolling next week. In particular, we need to start talking about King of the Hammers. Mr. Levine over on twitter confirmed that Broncos will be at the event and for those of you in SoCal, this is the best chance yet to see Broncos in person. Also, Bronco Knoll isn't far from the event and, according to @TorgSurv, it's worth a visit.

We'll also be breaking down the final option lists for each trim. If you're reading this then you probably won't need this. However, we've got the a broad range of folks in the Nation and some might not find the Bronco Order Guide all that easy to comprehend. We probably won't do a profile on First Edition though. FE is a pretty curated experience and my initial take is that a profile of its options wouldn't be very interesting. Let me know in the thread if I'm wrong and we'll adjust course and do one.

We'd also like to start featuring content from other Bronco creators. If you enjoy a particular IG, YouTube, or other content creation account that centers on Bronco be sure to share so others can enjoy it too. We want Bronco Nation to do its part in introducing our audience to other great Bronco channels so point us in the direction of the ones that you enjoy.

Bronco Delivery Timeline
We put together all the info that we've got on the Bronco Delivery Timeline in one place. Take a gander and let us know what other questions you have.
Bronco GVWR Explained
So there's been a lot of worry about Bronco's Gross Vehicle Weight Rating and what it means for it's potential as a platform for long range, adventure travel. Dusty Rhodes broke down the details and showed that, for vehicle in this class, Bronco is competitive when it comes to payload and if all competitors used the same standards for measuring these things, it might be top dog.
Tow, Tow, Tow Your Boat
Again, Dusty Rhodes cuts through the noise and gets to the bottom of Bronco towing capabilities.
Accessories for days...
Bronco is about modularity and customization, or so they say. Well, "they" seem to be backed by some numbers this week with the release of the launch accessories list for Bronco. It's long and there's some good stuff on there. Take a look and let us know which of these mysteries you'd like us to explore.
Blue as Lightning
Remember back when we didn't have the final ordering guide or the accessories list... Yeah, I don't either but I hear that we all kinda swooned over a First Edition in Lightning Blue.
G.O.A.T. Raised by Goats
Don't look now but that little baby Bronco is going places. I've been telling y'all for awhile that Bronco Sport is actually a pretty cool vehicle. Glad to see Ford giving it some space with it's own marketing campaign.

Featured User Threads
Sometimes you can't do it all on your own so I'm going to pick out a few threads that I enjoyed this week and if I missed any, please post them below so we can highlight them.
A Thank You
Folks, Bronco Nation had a huge week this week. In particular, our little Bronco Nation Forum community had a huge week this week. By the metrics that people use to judge these things, y'all knocked it out of the park. New user registrations, user activity, post reactions, all of it sky rocketed this week and I'm super grateful for you devoting some time to come hang out with us.

For the last few months, the Bronco Nation forums have been a labor of love for a group of us on the Bronco Nation team. Admittedly, the forums had a rough start and we've had to learn a ton of lessons about how to be the best stewards of an online community. We still have lots to learn and we're still keeping an ear to ground for feedback that we can implement that will help connect you with others that love Bronco and help you build relationships that outlast your rigs.

So a big thanks to our other Bronco Nation staff who have been helping build this community.

But the biggest thank you goes to the folks who read this far into a really long post. Y'all are awesome and there's so much ahead that we can't wait to share. We'll see you there.

Thank you for posting the Bronco accessories list. This certainly gives the buyer time to think over the options and plan for the financial outlay. Thanks Bronco Nation.

can you get anymore information on the drop down tail gate table and how to attach items to it (fire extinguishers).
Regarding your question on attaching a fire extinguisher to the drop-down tailgate table, you might look at the link below and scroll down to the two pictures showing the table.
Fire Extinguisher Holder | Bronco Nation Forum (thebronconation.com)

In the Bronco Trail Rig, they used a 5lbs tank on a bracket that was bolted to the table.
Amerex B402T, 5lb ABC Dry Chemical Class A B C Fire Extinguisher, with Vehicle Bracket: Amazon.com: Industrial & Scientific

Certainly, one approach. I suspect many owners will use different ways to carry a fire extinguisher. Whatever works for you.

Thanks! I recognize the email now although for some reason I got one for “registered user” and not “member” and didn’t include the last part about the $45 offer. I sent a note to David asking about it.
