That’s about 100k :rofl:

I'm pretty sure I could make money building them from aftermarket parts for 100K each.

My '93 Nissan Truck had a 1/2 ton axle, fully boxed frame and an inline 4 banger. It would not be hard to make a 3rd gen sized truck as bullet proof as the first gen taco or old hilux.

It also wouldn't have been very hard to make the FJ Cruiser a convertible and kill the Wrangler market, but they didn't listen to me about that either.

Nah, V8 is too heavy for a modern vehicle. The Raptors did the right thing with the EcoBoost V6. Great power and less weight. The seem to be pretty solid on reliability too.

That being said, I am putting a V8 in the BeerRunner... :deadbanana:

didnt they go back to a V8 because the Ram TRex?

I think they did because all the V8 fanbois were mad that the 2nd gen didn't have a V8 option. I don't think it had a whole lot to do with the TRex. Coulda had some influence, but I think Ford wanted to listen to their customers and deliver what they wanted for the past few years.

Ran a Bronco Badlands this week during a demo they had. Will say they are much comfier than my 20+ year old 3rd gen 4runner. But also didn't enjoy driving it as much. It performed no better on 35's than my 3rd on 33's although it has a 10 speed auto to my 4 speed auto which was nice for low range and crawling...

so plan to do some dual cases and manual swap my 3rd so I can still give them Bronco boys the fingers out at Fordyce
