I'm an 70s-80s teenager and both my 71 and 79 CJ5s had 15" white spoke wagon type wheels with the blue and red pinstripes and 12 X 15 X 32 Ground Hogs. I think those wheels might look "Bomb" on the new Bronco. 1600116210798.png

I had a set of original firestone 15x10s i bought from a guy who had em stashed in his garage attic for 20 years. Paid 100 for em and never had a leaky bead(bias boggers) again. Beautifully beefed wheels.

I wouldn't mind some retro bumpers. I just don't want plastic.

With a rough surface, ya know like fancy ceiling paint.

I feel like I will be making my own bumpers eventually. just to get away from the Darth Vader look.

Oh i will probably late next year lol.:cry:

But I do encourage anyone with a garage and the occasional free time, and plenty of soap, to go buy the cheapest welder and angle grinder they can find and try to make something. Even if its just some decorative thing or a minor repair on something broke. Its easy to learn, fun to master, and simpler than it looks. Who knows maybe by the time you tear up your factory bumper years from know you will be able to easily fab a new one up.
