This would be the perfect time to call your 4wp and get to know them. They can put you on the calendar for an install and give you a quote for the install. most of our shops are booked 2 weeks out for labor.

Man they blew it on the Front bumper over a simple thing... fog lights.

Anyone buying this most likely means they did not get the modular factory bumper. So they have the fog lights. However this bumper has no accommodation for them and instead requires you to buy 4 additional lights or have unsightly holes.
I like the Ford Modular Bumper. It allows removing the end caps, giving better clearance for tires and approaching obstacles when off road. I guess it just depends on the terrain you plan on having your Bronco in. I personally am not missing the fog lights and if I find I need them, then I will mount some and tie it into one of my aux switches. No big deal in my opinion.

I want the soft top minimalist rack they designed. It looks perfect for what i'm trying to do without the gargantuan external racks that wranglers have available.
Agreed. It's a good look.

@dirtstar2002 What is the weight of the front bumper? and the winch mount?

Any plans to make a lightweight front bumper and winch mount, high strength aluminum version?

How much weight savings do you think you could achieve with the high strength aluminum version, 40%, 50%, etc?

I don't have the exact weights on the bumper or winch plate or a comparison of the ford bumpers. I can say, that aluminum bumpers have never passed any of our tests in the past, and stay inside a competitive price point.

What type of tests have they not passed?

The right high strength aluminum alloy can be just as strong as steel and I would expect to pay a premium for them.

@dirtstar2002 Really like the look of the black stripe with the Bronco logo. In the video you did with BN, it sounded like you were not sure it would be offered. Any updates on that?
