The Goal -
the Ford mud-flaps looked too big & expensive, but I wanted something behind the front tires to prevent rock-chips on the side panels. Decided would try to make small custom mud-flaps, to go along w two sets of IAG V1 EZ-Steps
When the Bronco was finally delivered I got to work

Otherwise the dealer walk-in market...

Thanks - Good News -
This morning we talked with our dealer. They have a 2-door Black Diamond w Hardtop in transit as Dealer Stock - For Sale - NOT Customer Order -
Ford tells us that HARDTOPS are the BIG BIG BIG constraint in producing our Customer Orders ??
