Looks like the headlight and taillight connections between the lower trim lights and the signature lights may be a plug and play swap, which is awesome. Then we just have to be prepared to drop some serious cash for the upgrade.

Thanks for those photos. It looks infinitely better to me without the spare tire. I sure wish there was a factory delete option. But fortunately it looks like an aftermarket solution will be easy to make look good. I haven’t had a car with a spare tire since last century and think that carrying one makes about as much sense as carrying an extra water pump. I have a plug kit and compressor in each of my cars. That will get me out of any tire failure short of a blowout. (I’ve even plugged sidewall holes temporarily just to get home.) Even if I had a spare, I’d plug a tire on the road. It’s so much easier, faster, and safer. If I ever venture far off road, perhaps I’d throw the spare in the back. But that’s just me. The thing is really good looking otherwise. That spare just looks absurd to me. The first thing I’ll do is get rid of it. Just my 2 cents.

Agreed, an offroad spare looks absurd on an offroad vehicle.

Love the pics!
Somehow it is making the wait more bearable.
If the Bronco is built anything like the Ranger I drove I will be one happy camper:)

Thanks you two are the best. Can't be said enough.

I do like the 2-dr cyber orange with the fast-back top! :love:

Wow! I wish I could unsee that beast (Yellow Hummer). I’d guess that you’d be significantly less likely to get a flat off road than onroad unless you’re doing high speed off-roading. I’d guess that 99% of all flat tires are due to picking up nails, screws, scrap metal, etc, on the road. Off road, the ground is usually somewhat forgiving and devoid of such junk. But to each his own... I’m sure the owner of that yellow monstrosity thinks it looks good.

Maybe you should consider other vehicles? The Mach-E doesn't carry a spare.

Fortunately, tire side wall damage, cuts, blowouts or tires losing their bead never happen offroad.

Not Understanding why some think the Signature lights will be so expensive aftermarket. Look at the Jeep Market, you can get replacement lights for 600-700 and tails for 250-400. I cant see the Broncos cost 3-5k. I like the Sigs much better than the standard but will probably be going BD as its about 6k cheaper than badlands and hoping to trade or purchase aftermakrts that look like the signature headlights.
