I'm actually tempted by a manual two door. I'd planned on buying a Miata or 60's Alfa GTV in the next few years, but would benefit from something with some offroad abilities for taking the kid camping and skiing, so this probably makes more sense. That 2.3L should be at least related to the Focus RS and Mustang lump, so a little tuning should get it up over the stock 2.7L numbers anyway. Thinking a Badlands with the 33's should be about perfect.
I like it. Saw pics of an orange 2 door with the hole/window in the door...looks amazing. I have some gripes with Ford though, but I will definitely test drive one. Probably wait for everyone to trade in their JL Wranglers, so I can sell my 88 and buy one of those.
Placed deposit for one when it became available. 2dr Black Diamond edition. Was debating the badlands edition but TBH, don't truly need that type of off-roading capabilities. Don't truly need the sasquatch package either, but that will for sure be added! lol
