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.

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.

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).
