This looks great! If you haven’t done it, the Rockjock tract bar relocation bracket makes a big improvement with highway driving feel.
Appreciate it!!!

I put an adjustable trac bar on it. Assuming the bracket does the same thing?

It does but, that is more of a bandaid approach. The bracket should make your tract bar nearly parallel which is the position it’s designed to work in. Very happy with the ride after installation. I’m running 38’s (Patagonia XT)

I will definitely be doing some hardcore off-roading but it will not be often and I will be driving my Bronco to get there. There are no places to off-road close to me. I am at least 3-4 hours or more to any place that would be even remotely considered hardcore. Everywhere else is "fairly" easy and still 2 hours away. Plenty of mud near me, but that is NOT an option. Spent too much time as a teenager cleaning mud out of every nook and cranny of my trucks.
When I put on a lift, I will also have to do tires and a set of rockrail /steps. My wife has a hard time getting in now. With lift and tires adding about 4 inches to my height, the rockrail steps will be a must have at the same time.
Shove it under the Bronco and let it run. Park it in the yard and get a 2fer. Learned this from a buddy that surf fishes. Does a decent job. Not perfect but the level of effort is pretty darned low.

I still don’t understand why the fenders don't come painted on the Everglades, it looks much better.
I'll that I agree on this color. But, I think I like the black with my green. Goes with the other black accents.

Ordered and makes sense. I have a few early broncos and same concept on the front axle. I always add a riser to the D44 to get everything parallel so makes sense that I’d need a bracket on the rear of the bronco. Duh.

Thanks for the advice.

Added Icon tie rods and I had no idea how much they’d improve the handling of the Bronco. I bought them for strength but the Broncos street manners are now night and day. Before it was darty in corners and over bumps. Also had some serious understeer at speed. None of it was so bad that it wasn’t drivable but I also didn’t notice how bad it was until after I replaced the tie rods.

@Badsquatchman thanks for the recommendation on the tracbar riser. Installed it about a week after the tie rods and just when I thought my street/highway handling couldn’t get better, the riser was the icing on the cake. For anyone who has a 3” lift or more I HIGHLY recommend these two mods.

Awesome rig, and will be replicating this on my Bronco as well.

Would love to see what this looks like compared to a stock Bronco!

Thanks! Appreciate it.
Hit 15k miles this week and still going strong.

Upgraded the stereo system by replacing the rear pods with 6.5” kickers, opening the EQ in forscan and adding a kicker amp and sub in the factory box. Super surprised by how good it sounds compared to stock. It still needs help for top down cruising and better overall acoustics so I‘m planning to upgrade the fronts with 3 way components and MTI dash grills. Will also add a 5 channel amp and an additional removable 10” sub.

here is what I have done , staqarted out as Badlands with SAS
Eibach Pro truck 2 coil overs
1' level lift in the front
Icon tie rods
Fabtech UCA
track bar
upper and lower Trailing arms
Sits at 41" level on all 4 with the stock SAS wheels and tires . I also did Tune , cold side air intake , intake , exhaust .
After reading this , I am contemplating 38's vs the 37's . I am also changing out the fenders and bedsides to ADV 8' kit and Hood .
if there is something I am missing , Please let me know , as i am a newbe when it comes to the lifted 4x4 world . I come from the lowered truck world .
Thanks for the inspiration

Sounds like you’ve done everything right so far. The biggest issues with running 38’s is fender clearance but you’re solving that with the ADV’s. My factory squared fenders are what made me realize I could run 38’s/39’s. The next issue is wheel offset/frame rub. You will need to remove the rear crash bars regardless of offset. If you’re running a factory offset wheel you will still have some slight frame rub at full lock on the rear of the front wheels. If you’re running aftermarket wheels it’s not an issue. The front of the wheels rubbing can be solved by trimming (or fully removing) the front crash bar. I’m planning to do the JKS max wheel kit but haven’t because just trimming has worked fine. Can’t wait to see your finished product!

That painted grill surround looks fantastic! I've only seen that done on white grills but it has nice contrast with the Magnetic Gray.
