The exact reason I like it. The Bronco, as a vehicle, pops. I don't need, or want, a flashy colour on it.This photo made me decide that cactus grey is not for me. There is just no pop in there. Just a little too bland.
You can spend over $100k and get a vehicle with steelies. And it's perfectI just don't get the steel wheel fascination. I can't see spending 40-50k on a vehicle to get wheels you can buy from JC Whitney for less than 90.00 each. I guess its so when you hi and rock climb, you don't mess up the nicer wheels???? Looks like a under cover cop car to me.
The old Defender is Exactly why I love the Steel Wheels on the Base and Black Diamond. Such a great looking truck. I just think I want to paint mine white or the silver argent color. I am going to see how they look in person when I get the truck though. I think maybe the black will look good paired with Rapid Red.You can spend over $100k and get a vehicle with steelies. And it's perfect
I see no reason why I wouldn't still like it.I respect that. In 5 years, will it still be interesting? Or boring?
Same. Except I'll add a couple of doors as well.Personally, I'm very happy with how it looks. This is exactly what I've been planning to go with, so I'm glad to see pics of it in real life. I'll just add the roof rails and be good to go
Just the result of the steelies being much thinner than other stock wheels. Also gives you an excuse to buy bigger tires
I don't have too many styling complaints, and I hate to point it out if you haven't noticed, but that back-up camera really does stick out pretty far. Looks a little goofy.
I'll be looking into making a spacer or something to bump the wheel out a bit so my BD doesn't have a wheel boner.
Or this abomination.Condo........ Go.......... wait, not allowed to call this color by its colloquial name.
CG and A51 are ultra modern styles of paint.
Artificially glossy clear to pretend it isn't bland
The mental attention needed is that it's a cheap surface coating and looks low rent. However, it's incredibly popular right now and "dates" any vehicle with that style of paint to a narrow point in time.
I was all on board with CG until its production spec turned out to be this "late 2020's" featureless landscape.
Also, I'm not alone in this viewpoint, but definitely outnumbered. This paint follows the trend here in America where any sort of artistic expression must be devolved back to two colors, zero depth or style so that the average person isn't offended by it. (As if iconic silver, a darker silver, two black paints and white weren't bad enough).
An example of taking style backwards to boredom:
And another with A51 and CG.
