    The Vette is played out as well as the over-priced Viper that is overrated. The Viper brings me to my next statement, Why do all Dodge owners yell MO-POWER!!!

    Ford did great releasing this classic and Roush did a great job with the assembly and engine.

    Its official that they are building it.
    Check out this site for more info

    All I know is that when I saw that puppy at Detroit Auto Show, NAIAS, it looked dope.

    I cant wait for the first test drive. I wouldnt count my chickens before they hatch about the driveline though, it wouldnt surprise me in the least to see it significantly detuned.

    They can't detune it if they want to keep up with Dodge's 500/500/

    I like it. but blue with white stripes would be better. but geez im thinking taking that thing in for regular service to a umm regular Ford dealer? ummmm heh

    Ok Ford needs to do a new bronco with D44 & 9inch to fight the J33p rubicon. since the only thing newest 2003 explorers and expeditions will be doing is exploring the shopping mall parking lot.

    Re: check engine light


    I heard ford was going to do that. From what i heard they where going to base it on the sport trac. Ford really does need to make something thats actually built for 4wheeling that isnt f250 size. I can see new explorers and expedition getting stuck in parking lots those curbs just jump out and bite you!

    I heard a while back that Ford was going to bring back the Bronco. The article said that it was to be based on an Explorer frame, V-8 powered, I want to say 44 front and rear, and have a removable top. It would be awesome if they did this, but I can't locate the article I say on Blue Oval News a few years back.

    Jay,

    When they say this they are talking about the 02 4 doors, not the sports... You still have a solid axle in the rear and yours is just fine... Don't take it so personally...

    I'll do just that, I had their website and actually talked to founder over the phone a couple of times and just lost touch due to the family and all. I'll work on it for you, they are a major player in "Snowblind" every year around Gaylord (I think).
