Whats it made out of? Hopefully not something that rusts. If so, I wouldn’t consider if you live in areas that use salt or mag chloride during winters. And how hard will it be to get the caked mud out from behind the openings?

don’t see too many aftermarket options we’ll have due to the location of the intercooler.

Love this! No doubt there will be plenty of other bumper / hidden winch options so I can't wait to see what the aftermarket comes up with.

The factory Badlands bumper is made from metal so I guess it will rust off too?? Even the plastic covered ones have metal structures underneath.

I do live where they use tons of road salt. 1 big welded bumper sure would be easier to clean from behind than a metal one cobbled together from a bunch of smaller pieces.

I’m a big fan of cartoons, but let’s remember y’all....they’re sure as shit not real.

They may call me Salty, but I’m 100% over any concepts, renderings, color ups, imagined, photoshop, maybes, fan art, reimagined....illusions.

But that’s just like my opinion man.

PEACE.

Referring to the holes throughout this bumper that’ll collect all that crap. Ask the jeep guys with their rocker sliders & steps that have holes. You should see the amount of crap that gets into places on my jeep.

I'm looking forward to seeing some stubby bumpers come out.

While I'm sure there will be plenty of aftermarket bumpers out there for the Bronco, If you want to have a winch mounted behind the bumper, the bumper is going to have to stick out like the jutting jaw / fat lower lip on the JL /JKs. I'm sure that the aftermarket will figure this out, but I fear we will inevitably lose the nice and tight look of the factory bumper going this route.
