I remember when the FJ came out, nice concept, had cool shit like all the wiring was run through the ceiling so it didn't short in water but too bad it came out when yodas started sucking.

Looking forward to seeing these in person. Strongly considering it as a 2021 buy myself, though I wish they'd just apply all this style and tech and bring back a new Ford Expedition. I can make this work, but not quite #Merica without it being twice as big with thge third row and enough cargo space to fit a Euro car in the trunk.

God damn this thing looks like it's for TPWFs.

 

Doesn't even look like a full size truck. I'd still take a ~'88 Bronco with the 351W in it, personally. 

I also couldn't find the sense to buy this because, a) never buy the first model year of something new, and b) I bought a brand new car once, not worth it for me again. Depreciation sucks and I don't keep cars that long. I've had my current car 3 years, that's the longest I've kept a car in my life.

@CLICKCLACKONERThat's what I did last whip, granted it's a pretty big expense but you can drive whatever car you want.  I had a thing for Range Rovers my entire life, wouldn't want one more than 6 years old, or with over 75k though so doing a 3 year lease was the move.

 

@KalashnikovThere are already a million giant SUV's out there already with luxury etc that aren't that good in more than a few inches of snow. There are very few short wheelbase, actually good off road type vehicles outside of Jeeps, or the luxury shit people with good sense never take off road. The reason I like it is the Bronco is there's a 2 door availiable, easy 3 point turns on the trail instead of backing out. Reminds me of the 84 Bronco II, or the original Bronco:

OOntz Trivia:

 

Croc Tears filmed this way back in 2015. We found a dirt road out behind Woodberry commons one day and took it off road. Found this big puddle, then went into this camp area and found a steep ass boat launch that kept going even steeper past where normal vehicles would pull out and gunned the Range up it. The property owners happened to be there at the top, oof, and asked what were were doing. No lie Croc Tears was like "no, what are you doing here" like he was going to jump out on them it was hilarious. I tried to deescalate, and dude said he just wanted to give us props for making it up that launch, he couldn't in his "off road" golf cart lol.

 

Since we're going back to the way back machine here there's a somewhat famous bronco II in the background of this pick the crew always used the roll in. A good friends dad that copped a fresh bronco II for him, and it was the defacto skate whip for us for a good 2 years until I bought my own whip. Till this day still a fan of small compact SUV's myself.

@Mercer My boss is on his third lease for his range.  those are really luxurious cars.

He’s doing it wrong. Those fall under farm equipment if you use the right tax people. Then get the huge write offs 

 

 

The most popular usage of Section 179 Deduction is for vehicles. In the past, Section 179 deduction was also referred to as the “Hummer Tax Loophole”, as, at the time, the deduction allowed businesses to purchase SUVs and then write them off. The tax code has been modified since then; however, the Section 179 deduction can still be beneficial for businesses while buying vehicles.

I'm pretty sure that's the reason he leases....maybe not as big as a purchase write off but there's definitely a deduction for leasing.

I was always under the assumption that a lease payment was a 100% write off because it's not a loan you are paying back.

Have a very close friend who works as a service writer at a Range Rover/ Land Rover dealership that taught me that. Apparently it’s what most of his costumers do and in his opinion is the only way owning a rover makes sense. They’re halfway between and suv and luxury car. They are in the shop more than they are on the road because they have so many drivetrain issues. Getting a major tax break is the only benefit unless you just wanna look cool and pull some bush

Some people get a new car every three years (or less) and your average monthly cost of ownership on a brand new whip is lower with a lease. Your average payment for buying a new Range rover is about 2 G's a month. A lease will keep it under $1K most of the time. Plus there's no haggling trying to get bluebook for your trade in.

 

From what I've heard, It's also beneficial if you're someone who gets into legal trouble, or fights quite often as it's not going to get confiscated in a lawsuit to pay for a new jaw bone or something. The first thing an ambulance chaser is checking for is if you own a car/house/expensive asset making the lawsuit worth it for them to pursue.

That angle makes sense too

sheltering assets isn’t a problem I’m lucky enough to have

Leasing would also sidestep the maintenance issues with that brand

 

TBH, those issues as mostly over, Range Rovers are reliable as fuck now. At least up to 60K miles I'd say pretty much bullet proof. With that said if you ever need parts better lube up the wallet for a raping. I never once had a single problem with mine over 3 years. Not so much as a squeak, a rattle, a button that didn't feel like it clicked right, power not there when I need it. Everything was 100% the entire lease.

 

As far as working on one goes, I remember telling this girl she was getting ripped off by her mechanic who in hind sight was hooking her up. Ended up buying a Plug Kit for her to do the tune up myself, just a plug wire kit back in 2002ish  (before all the internet bootlegs) it was like $300. Any OEM part costs at least double what it would be for most any other luxury brands. Even for shit like the headlight's bulb, it's pushing $80, but for a ford SUV a bulb is $12, maybe looking at $20 for BMW/Audi.

 

That's why I'd never recommend buying a used Range Rover, or holding one more than 80k. Even though they're nice AF, and in my opinion fit/feel better than German Luxury it's not worth the costs of ownership for most people. Not saying they break down a lot (especially anything after 2014) it's just expensive as fuck when they do.

First of all. Thread merger. Secondly, fuck that. I don’t really vibe with new age vehicles. I’m attracted to some newer trucks, some bmw’s, Lincoln’s, and always the Land Rover line. Regardless, I prefer originals especially with old cars, which I don’t know a fucking thing about. White oj bronco forever. Would settle on this If I had the bread. Be first in line for this throwback change up. 210,000

I got two reservations going - one for an Outer Banks 4dr and another for a Big Bend  4dr trim. 

 

The Outer Banks is mid tier  trim basically a mall crawler that could 4 wheel if it wanted - focused more on the interior/exterior comforts but still is pretty capable imo. The thing is at MSRP 42k though and that comes with a soft top - I am going to need to add a hardtop upgrade for sure. I want to keep the motherfucker under 50k because I do pretty well financially but still......50k is a lot. 

 

The Big Bend is the second level trim - I would add the mid package, possibly upgrade it to the 2.7l V6, hard top and maybe Sasquatch depending on the cost of that package. More likely to come in under 45K total here and have a pretty sick ride. 

 

Seems like the wait is until next Spring at least, maybe even Summer. 

 

That being said the truck looks fucking tits, super capable to handle most off road needs of the average joe...

 

Any of yous guys considering copping this sik jawn?

the doors on the coupe looks retarded...hopefully that's an option.  other than that, it's a dope whip.

The donut doors failed safety tests and will not be available from Ford - unless they re-engineer them. 

Someone will probably aftermarket them but I agree with you, rather just remove the doors so I can let the wind tickle my balls.
