Once SEMA peeps get there hands on a Bronco, and some are actually on the road/delivered, there will be a giant aftermarket shitstorm for cool stuff. Save some of your money for the goodies to come....

I'd like to see what else besides simple handles could be attached in those spots. I'm not even sure what I mean but fun to think about. Extra cupholders? Cigar clip? Any ideas?

I can picture these on the Outer Banks with Anodized Roast dash.
Would a green-brown combo be "Roast Roach"? Or "Eddie Flower"?

Im sure there will be tons of options from thingiverse.com to big names in the 4x4 world.
I need to reach out to Ford to get dimmensions so I can work on an idea. (If anyone knows who to contact I'd appreciate it.)

With what you can do with 3D printing, oh yeah there's going to be sooo many!

Anyone know of any aftermarket concept handles our there beyond the this one?

Basesquatch is sounding more and more interesting as a blank slate option for customization.

I believe that center grab handle is supposed to have tools built into it. I would be interested to see how that works and to see what kind of cool stuff the aftermarket comes up with.

These concept handles are the best looking we've seen yet. I love the matching screws on that concept

Once the pattern is posted online, you'll be able to 3D print your own.

Would not recommend pulling too hard on home printed grab handles. Most of the home printer filament is either a) going to warp hard in a auto interior in the summer, or b) too weak to be really functional for this purpose, or c) both. The filament printer stock I would contemplate using is a) pretty expensive, and b) requires somewhat exotic printers (heated build volumes, and I mean oven temperatures, not just a bit warm) to deliver the strength. Metal printing is out there, and it works well, but parts that size are not going to be cheap--things the size of a thumb are about $25 in Aluminum, closer to $100 in Titanium, Steel, or Nickel alloys. My guess is that getting a set of those handles printed in Titanium is a couple grand, plus finishing--they did not come out of the printer with that smooth finish.
