@Cousin Eddie any feedback you can share on the Husky liners? How is fit and finish with the rubberized floor in the badlands?

They fit very well! I was a little concerned the "spikes" on the back might damage the floor but I've been checking it daily for signs of indentation but nothing so far.

Lighting
Probably the next item I buy will be lighting. Been looking at the Baja Designs XL-80 for the A-Pilars:
https://www.bajadesigns.com/products/Ford-Bronco-21-On-A-Pillar-Kits.asp
Finally got the Baja Designs XL-80s and installed them. Originally ordered directly from Baja Designs but they had an 8-10 week lead time. I saw Northridge 4x4 had them in stock and roughly $100 cheaper. In addition, I signed up for their newsletter and got an additional $50 off.

The only negative I have to say is if you are using the upfitter switches and harness kit, you need to use either Aux 1 or Aux 2 as the lights draw ~10.2 Amps. I might rewire it to use the provided relay so I can control it via Aux switches 3-6.
