I've always been a year two guy....

But I saved the first picture to my Bronco Folder for inspiration as I pull my thoughts together.

I don’t necessarily want a “tamer” Bronco. I just probably won’t be rock crawling. I’ll take it off the beaten path, but that means remote parts of Northern Michigan. Not Moab. The base with better tires would be great for me. It’s all the capability I’d ever need.
I agree with your focus on capability specific to your needs. I have come full circle on what I want my Bronco to be. I initially wanted a WT. Then I thought a BL would be better suited for me. (I did not know what a Front Stabilizer Bar Disconnect was used for). After a lot of research and reading posts on B6G, I started looking at the OBX and BB. I've decided on the BB, which I think will be a good daily driver. It will be a stock BB with no mods, other than a tint and maybe slightly larger tires. It will have some classic Bronco cues, though.

you could always look at the base model. if the standard 255/70-16 tire is too small, the 265/75-16 should give you another inch of sidewall.. looking at the tires on my TRD Tacoma, the stock tires are 265/70-16 and measure 31" tall. plenty of size choices in the 16 inch wheel....

Ford doesn't push the base model configuration because they make the big $$ on option packages. My ideal would be for the options to be a la carte rather than lumped together in a package.

This is why I chose the 2dr Black Diamond
A great platform to create the classic Bronco.

Plus access to all colors and washout floors. Ford definitely knew what they were doing when they specced those options 2 trims up from base. I reduced my build from sas badlands with all the constrained stuff to a BD minus all (other than mod bumper) constraints. First step when/if i get it will be powdercoating those steelies white

I am *this* close to switching back to BD to avoid the front locker commodity constraints. I lose the high package, but keep most everything I really need. Think I’ll pull the trigger on Monday.

Pouring through all of the photos, concepts, and mock-ups of different 2 and 4 door Bronco configurations, all I've really seen is big tire and more hard core off road builds outfitted with the sasquatch package.

While I appreciate all of the tech and investment that's gone into making this the best off roader in the market, am I the only one who would prefer to see more examples of a cleaner, more classic build of the new generation Broncos...perhaps even more of a beach/surf style concept?

Below, is an illustration that I saw Matthew Hoss post on Instagram that is the closest and best example I've seen and is closer to what I was hoping to see at launch. Anyone else share this appreciation for the basic and come across other examples?

Love it! I'd go with grey top as my Base Bronco is white so need some contrast plus dirt.

So a base bronco with white wheels, white top, and slightly more aggressive tires?

This is west coast style.
out here we run Baja and dunes and higher speed stuff. Less crawling and more beach and sand and snow for fun. That’s the look and functionality that I’m looking for too.
I also have the BD 2 dr to start with.

There's a guy with a YouTube channel who bought a base model and is using Jay Leno's 1968 Bronco as inspiration for his mods. Antimatter blue rig with the old school white accents; and some other mods he records. If interested: search: "Budget Bronco"
