    Given the amount of electronics then the manufacturer would call warranty voided whenever they see that you have used HF gear.
    OK, the cynic in me woke up.

    I guess this is a old thread.

    I think Ford stopped Bronco production. o_O

    I like the way you think. Just make it a big normally aspirated V8. Why frig around? ;)

    My son just took delivery of his 2021 Ford Bronco a couple of weeks ago and loves it. He was fortunate because, for reasons unknown, the hard top version is now completely unavailable. He lives in San Diego where, apparently, people have money to burn. He has had multiple offers from people who want to buy it from him for more than he paid for it. He's not selling.

    I will see him and the Bronco next week. I'll give it a thorough look over to determine radio friendliness.

    Not sure why Ford went with putting Bronco badging on those...the sport model is nothing like nothing like the other.

    The reason production of the hardtop was stopped is because there were serious problems with the sealing of the tops. There are hundreds of them sitting at the production facility waiting for the "new, improved" tops. A friend of mine had one ordered with an August delivery date. Ford has pushed the date into the middle of October, and they hinted to him it may be even later than that.

    To cash in on the Bronco cachet, so to speak.

    Spotted a Bronco Sport recently and thought it was a Toyota until I saw the badge!

    Yup, just like badging that hideous electric SUV as a "Mach E" as if it's supposed to be a Mustang. Yuck.
