Promising.

Personally, I'm not remotely interested in the carbon look, but I would like to see some fenders along the lines of the SEMA build.

While I do like the look of the fastback, I just cannot get behind sacrificing the interior space for that look. I'd go either slanted or OEM.

Since they specifically mention dealing with heat, fair to assume the hood design is actually functional, instead of some stupid purely cosmetic BS?

i can vouch for their quality. Used the bedsides and front fenders on my 02 Tacoma beater. Just need to take time fitting together for a nice fit.

Slanted looks more like the original 1st gen Broncos. I would definitely buy this top.

Every time someone has asked that on their comments they say they are functional. I’ll take their word for it. They seem like a great run company

UPDATED to include the new forged carbon flares:


So I follow about a bajillion Bronco accounts on insta to satisfy the itch while we all wait. Stumbled on this company in SoCal that makes fiberglass and carbon fiber parts for trucks and off road vehicles.

They are making two different hoods for the Bronco! Check out their insta for renders and videos of the process.


(Both Hoods)


(Ram Air Hood)




(Heat Extractor Hood)

They're designing fenders and rear quarters!

But the best part is they're planning on making HARDTOPS! Last week they put up polls for 3 designs: Fastback (angled like TrekTop soft tops), Slanted (less angle than the fastback but more than OEM style), and OEM style. I'm curious to see which style won!

Hard top examples:


(ADV Fiberglass did not make these renders but this is the design that they plan on going with)

Naturally I DM'd them to find out more. All their Bronco products are made on their 5-Axis CNC machine with aerospace accuracy so I expect the fitment to be A+

My plan is to keep the push to '22 for the chance at better color/interior options. But I'll likely get a soft top so I can buy their hard top and not have to wait until 2023 for the Mod Tops to be available as an accessory.
That is great news. Makes me feel a lot better about changing my order to eliminate the hardtop. I have had two sets of their front fenders on my Gen 1 Raptor. Held up well so far. I would not call fitment an A+. More like a B. but for the price, I felt it was a fair tradeoff.

Suprisingly, to me, that slight slant looks really great. Can you do a render of what that would look like on a 4-door?

This is how Ford should have designed the rear of the top to be similar to the original.

I bet Ford will do this for the refresh. If I was the after market I’d beat them to it

Pretty sure an ex Honda designer who was responsible for the Element top design weaseled his way onto the Bronco team. 🤦‍♂️
