So, I was thinking... One thing I like a LOT better about the OG Bronco is the shape of the wheel arches. The new rounded arches look good with the 35s, but seems to have specifically been developed for those tires. I really prefer the shape of the U100 wheel arches. Because the fenders are all removable with a few bolts, it would be pretty easy (if not cheap) to make cool OG looking fenders with the more squared off arches. You think anyone will make something like that, or am I crazy?

Square peg / round hole?

Also I think ford made them round to try to at least somewhat differentiate it from the Wrangler.

Ford uses round wheel wells on everything, part of their signature look.

I'm thinking a set of bushwacker cut out flares, that should do the trick. Probably lift them straight off the Bronco II molds.

It would be very cool if these were offered and could replace your oem ones - will they be the same material as the oem ones you think? i know i am inviting all kinds of speculation here but if they were "sturdy" enough to keep on all the time, I would have them painted and replace my oem ones - and use the oem ones to beat on!
