Looks promising. Nice departure from the econo-box so called SUV's everyone is producing these days. I think this will sell like hotcakes.

I think they look great and supposedly are quite capable. My wife is interested in the 4-Door. We'll see what the pricing is when they release more info on the 13th.

That'll come back and then everyone will want square ones. I remember someone lamenting about their old car once and saying; "I just want something with square headlights!"

On this Bronco it looks like it has round lights like the 60's broncos but they are in a squarish, oblong type housing.

Why can't they just bring back 3 on the tree and drum brakes?!

Hey! I learned to drive on 3 on the tree and drum brakes. I just get tired of everything looking "wierd". On a more practical side: ever price some of these funky light options? Our parking lights for Ford interceptors were something like 225.00. This because Ford decided to incorporate strobes and bells and whistles in the parking light assembly.
Sorry, I just like "old stuff" When I had my 87 Trooper, I would have preferred an 86 (nobody heard of a "round eye swap" back then. The 94 kind of moved me "more modern", then I went back to a 91 and finally my Spacecab. Now my Baja has weird headlights (which I have to polish occasionally). Dennis

Actually the headlights ARE round. They just have a thin LED accent bar that is integrated into the round shape. I assume these are like running lights. Pretty cool, IMHO.

Check out this pic I found of the rig pretty much straight on, and with a dark-colored grille, the true shape shows well. I'd put 'em on my Trooper if they made a set to fit!!!

I like the accessory rail on the dash. That'd be really easy to make and install in any other vehicle. The problem will be like in the firearm community where different accessories attach to different kinds of rails, and some parts only work with one kind when they first come out.
