I got my badlands about 2 months ago. It was one of the first in my area. Being a car guy and having every kind of car imaginable my favorite car has been one of my 2 Rubicon’s. The 10th Anniversary was my favorite car beating out much more expensive cars. After 3k miles this Bronco has surpassed all expectations and is really my favorite car I’ve ever had.

The only thing my car didn’t come with on my order was the B&O sound system. I fixed that by adding a couple compact Cerwin Vega woofers, a Rockford Fosgate amp and changing all other 6 speakers to Focal.

I took of my Sasquatch package so my order would get picked up early and it did. I actually liked the 33’ inch tires and wheels as they were a gunmetal grey not black how it looks on the ordering site. However I had my mind set on 35’s so I bought Black Rhino Gunmetal wheels and Toyo A/T tires.

I added a a couple LED front corner lights as well as a a LED bar.

I ordered from the dealership the Sasquatch fender flares and had those custom painted in Cactus Grey to match the body color as well as all the door handles.

I also had the Ford Logo painted the grill and roof color in a metallic grey with white trim to match the front grill as well as the Bronco back emblem. This minor detail made all the difference for me.

The only thing I’m waiting on is a front bumper brush bar and lights. I ordered one with the other LED lights but the brackets didn’t fit the Badlands modular number to Rough Country is working on brackets specifically for that bumper.

Love the ride it’s a 10 plus!!!

The blue oval emblem is definitely my least favorite part of the Bronco. I absolutely love how yours looks!

Did the dealer do it? A paint shop? DIY?

It looks fantastic, congrats!! How did they paint the handles and flares and what are your thoughts as to how it came out and anticipated durability?

I second this question because I want to get mine painted too! I'm in SoCal as well, how much did they charge you for painting?

Love the wheels but I don’t see any cooling for the breaks do they get hot

LED corner lights?
Did you need to remove the grille?
What lights did you use?

I think you have the best overall build on the site so far. Great work. Custom, things match, and it’s tasteful. No obscene looking bumpers or over the top decals. Doesn’t look like a high school kid built it. Love it.

What kind of paint shop did the fenders and door handles? Did that same shop also do the emblems?

Kudos! I like that you left the top and mirrors! Just the right amount of contrast! Also interested in what was done to maintain flexibility in the flares. Plasticiser of some sort? Or are modern paints flexible enough to spray straight up? Not that it matters! I like to think I could do it myself, but I’m old enough now to know better! Lol!
