The Bronco in this pic needs bigger tires, the bumper wings off, and a bit more lift. Not a great comparison in these shots imo.

I do like how on Wranglers the winch can be 'inside' the bumper, lower down, vs high and on top of the Bronco bumper.

For people who know these things, do you think aftermarket will come up with a bumper more like the Wrangler's bumper for Bronco, or do you think it's a structural issue with Bronco that it can't be done?

I know there's that adaptive cruise/radar block thingy to think about too.

Sorry if this has been discussed on some other thread already.
I wish ford did a bumper like that. give option to the customer, but on there end, extra money to charge. depending on price, I may buy the winch adapter. aftermarket will have bumpers available for a winch for sure. just a matter of time

yup, i got confused. thx for clarification
NBD, it’s amazing how much bigger those 33’s look over the 32’s on black diamond, I don’t blame you. I love the idea of getting Sasquatch with 35’s but 33’s or even 32’s are really large tires.

The dimensions in the Bronco look off, big body, small legs. Needs some bigger tires and a lift.
This is the result of designing for 35s from the factory, anything smaller isn't going to look right.

My dad use to say if everyone liked the same thing then we would all dress the same and drive the same car.
Yep I get that and thank god we all have different opinions...

Just gets old with all the negativity. So many people hating the grey Ht or hate this or I don’t like the colors or damn they didn’t make the fabric match my wants and needs...

I get it Ford hasn’t done everything The way we all would like but I just don’t get all the negative talk, I think the bronco looks awesome and if someone doesn’t no one is forcing this on them..

I'm not near as upset with the options as others. There's some things I don't like but no way am I trading my early reservation to wait. This will be the nicest car I have ever owned regardless. The payment looks like it's coming in over my mortgage and I don't care. I have been spending too many hours watching election crap. Tends to make me drink and then find myself engaging with strangers on a Bronco forum.

That top really does look gray against that orange.

Just being honest, the Jeep looks a lot better. The all plastic grille, gray MIC, and small tires kill it. I’m almost positive that most unbiased people would agree.

It’s also unfair because that’s a top level Rubicon vs. a bottom level bronco. Would like to see a Badlands next to a Rubi.

Haha! Just read through that Jeep forum thread. Lots of comments on if the Bronco is iconic or not and how the new Bronco looks like a CUV or crossover and feminine! Something tells me those Jeep bruhs making those comments have angry eyes on their rides!!! :ROFLMAO:

They did make a good point about the Area 51 overland concept looking like its tires are stuffed. Ford really should have done something about that before parading it around.
They said the Bronco looks "feminine" ???
Heck, I'm a girl, and I was thinking about getting a 2-door Wrangler partly BECAUSE it looks so "cute" and "sweet" and "girlie".

4.46 gears, Steel bumpers and rock rails, AUTO transfer case available as a stand alone option and 32" tires....Very capable rig regardless of powertrain configuration at a very reasonable price.
CAPABLE most people don't know what "capable" means, BECAUSE they are just "buying"
