Having the same thoughts with coloring the steel wheels.
When I see the black steels, it reminds me too much of winter studs up here. Maybe I'll use them in Winter only, but with a much larger tire size to fill out the fender flares

So this does prove that if you go for the optional signatures on the lower trims, you don't get rear LED lamps.

No it does not prove that. It has been said several times by ford that if you order Sig lights on the BB it comes with the upgraded tail lights. BD does not come with any of the upgraded lights. This is also #15 off the production line. It is a "very old", I guess you would call, prototype. Pics of these old ones are just to look at for fun, and not a good idea to base facts on. Ford is in the #270 plus range and even those aren't all together right.

I agree with that when they are black, However if they are white, Silver, Maybe body color I think they would look a lot better.

Ugh glad I saw this because it was my build, but not loving the black Steelies gray MIC top AND the cactus gray. I want the steelies and the MIC top so guess back to the drawing board color wise. Thinking Oxford White or AMB now.

Oh, cool. The BIG BEND 2 door is my safety net with the optional signatures if the OBX prices out to be too much.

Thank you sir for the update :)

The exact reason I like it. The Bronco, as a vehicle, pops. I don't need, or want, a flashy colour on it.

I like it because it's understated but, also, interesting.

Nah. I’ve seen it in person. It’s definitely grey..... maybe a tiny hint of green if the light is just right, but solidly grey
Ive seen in it person too, on a Sport. And yea i’d agree its most grey but ever since he said that comment, every time I see it, especially in the B&P I think damn, mint.

THANK YOU FOR SHARING ! ! ! !
I was originally going to go BD with the Area 51 color. Loved it on the computer screen months ago. I saw the live pics and it is just to much blue for me. I then went looking at the CG. Found myself wondering if that was going to be to white for my taste. These pics couldn't work any better for me. Sitting directly beside the B-Sport in white ? ? ? perfect ! ! ! !
I love the CG and I'm sticking with it for sure now. I am loading up with the Sasquatch package so I am not in the steelie debate.
Thanks again Lady Bronco

I am hot and cold with this color, I loved it when I saw it in person on a Sport, but for some reason I do not like what I see here.. also when people refer to it as "cement" it bothers me and turning me off the color big time. I saw the CG Sport in full sun and it had an ever so slight hint of "mint". but now on gloomy days will I be driving around in a bland cement colored Bronco? I shouldn't say bland I guess. Cement seems to be a color a lot of people like, i guess it is just not for me.

I think we are up around the high 270s or so for numbering. The top does look lighter than it is now but these rims look more correct. In the Bronco Materials and Interior video the lady says that the BD rims will be satin black not glossy like we have been seeing. I do like the satin better.
I just looked at the order packet pdf. Not good news. The Black Diamond steelies will be gloss black, not satin. That was a bummer for me.

Ya i saw that too, I was hoping for satin. Not a deal breaker though.

I finally saw Cactus Gray in person today--on a new Ranger FX4. What a great color. I really like how it plays the light and surroundings, and it definitely has a subtle sage green to it. I like it so much it convinced me to get a BD build rather than a Basesquatch, which is really good because I just need to convert my reservation and stop spending so much time building, evaluating, re-building and re-evaluating.
These pictures (taken with an iPhone 11 Pro) enhance the green. It was much more subtle.
