    -H3 won’t get a V8, factory finally did it

    -V8 won’t fit Jeep Wrangler, multiple aftermarket companies do it and now even FCA is saying it’s about to put the 392 into the Wrangler after claiming for years it wouldn’t pass safety with one.

    I bet it will be less than 3 years before the Bronco has at least one aftermarket company swapping in 5.0s, and the smaller 7.3L engines

    If a DOHC V6 with turbos, intercooler etc fit, there’s no excuse for not being able to fit a V8.
    I hear what you are saying. Especially since Ford transitioned the Raptor from a V8 to V6.

    I've got an f150 with the 3.5l ecoboost and I love it! Can't vouch for the 2.7l engines but can only imagine with less weight that they'd move this rig with no issues. Those who like the sound of a v8 obviously wouldn't be satisfied, but from a performance perspective, no complaints here with the 3.5l.

    I have been seeing a lot of articles about it, it looks promising. My Dad keeps on talking about it since he still has 1984 Ford Bronco Sport Utility 2D that still does its purpose.

    Amazing how Jeep figured out how to put a V8 in one after all of these years once the Bronco got released. Hopefully iron will sharpen iron and the 4x4 community will be better off for it.

    Now if I can just get the Bronco with the 392... Fords new 445 would be even better.
