Very interested in details, I purchased the materials but haven’t had opportunity to install yet. Wind noise on the highway definitely needs help. Does anyone have any experience with any aftermarket headliners? I know Hotheads has been promising a bronco version but haventer heard anything else.So I did couple of things yesterday! First I installed the dashboard cubbies. Nice little things that help store small items. Next I followed the MIC Noise Reduction guide linked below to sound proof the Raptor. It definitely made a difference! I still need to tweak few spots but I would say at least 50% reduction in wind noise going above 60 MPH!! Lastly took the family off to some snow near by!!
Pretty sweet setup John....anything that helps get a better sleep is worth it!On today‘s episode of ”What did you do to your Bronco”….
Easiest and Cheapest “mods’ Ever……
Easiest: I bought Deep Sleep Solomat and Pad for the four door Bronco. Unbox, unroll, add a few puffs of air and place in the back. Very comfortable. All my other supplies for multi-day off-road trip fit easily in the other side.
I saw a similar idea somewhere, so I can’t take credit.Pretty sweet setup John....anything that helps get a better sleep is worth it!
I really like the widow vent idea and most likely making my own set of them. Thanks for the show how...
I bought the QMparts roll bar grab handles on Amazon for $15.99 and really like them and recommend them. Hard to beat for the price and they seem to be made very well.OK, so not the most interesting mods, but today I ordered the rubber back seat cover and the the metal brake, gas and dead pedals. It just seems that a Raptor type vehicle needs upgraded pedals as opposed to the standard type. I did not order the paracord handles yet, does recommend them?
Wow, those look great! 🍻 Very Cool!Interested in some custom door sill protectors? You just need to contact:

Yes, I have a set of 4. Good for 5'-3" Mrs. Chili Pepper to get in. Also easier to hold than leaning forward to reach the A-pillar or console holds.OK, so not the most interesting mods, but today I ordered the rubber back seat cover and the the metal brake, gas and dead pedals.

Cool, I was looking forward to what your driving impressions were especially given your other vehicles. Congratulations and thank you for your thoughts on those driving enthusiast roads. I'm Happy for you!I got to drive it a good bit last night and today. We drove a bunch of our favorite mountain roads (in the Santa Cruz Mountains...like Hwy 9...the Bay Area folks will know it)...the area has been pummeled by storms so there's crap everywhere up there. It's a perennial favorite for driving enthusiasts...the cars and bikes you see up there on a nice day are pretty cool. No sports cars or motorcycles up there today...great day to get to know the Brap and on roads I've been driving many times a week for a few decades. The Brap really is a hoot to hustle in that environment. Despite having seen all the reviews, including from you all here, I was still surprised how engaging this thing is to drive. I'm impressed and stoked.
There are competing theories about break-in periods and how good they are (or not) for the motor, in particular. I tend to think that they're mostly a way for manufacturers to limit their liability from people jumping in a fast car and doing something stupid right out of the gate and coming back at the manufacturer with a 'no one told it was going to be that fast...'
All within reason, of course...I'm big on mechanical empathy, and keeping it sane on public roads. I'm really looking forward to getting it off-road...I'm sure it's going to be an absolute hoot.
