I wouldn't have ordered the Badlands if it was possible to add the mid package and keep the manual. Mainly wanted the mid package for the heated seats and rear sensors.
Ford probably figured it'd help boost the amount of Badland sales too by packaging it in the way that they did. They could...
I'm hoping that the wiring harnesses become available for purchase to make the head/taillight swap possible. I'm just going for looks, I like the base head lights better. I'd go with the OB unless you're planning on building it up, go for the base.
Ford should of just did that for the tail lights since they made both headlights LED. But also some people might just want to have more of a basic build.
Standard head lights just look the best IMO, especially on a two door.
I get why Ford does this with their trucks, mainly to keep costs down for the lower trims. But the basic lights just look perfect on the Bronco and the tail lights are fine and would do the job, I just rather have the LED tail lights.

From other treads on this topic, it probably won’t be an easy swap. But once people actually do it and show how difficult or easy it is to do, I’ll swap mine with anyone that wants the signature head lights as well.
