Not just the camera, some of the other sensors. (Note the one fully behind the winch on this shot.) That puts the winch out for me for now, I’ll wait to see what adjustments get made or maybe wait for an aftermarket solution that doesn’t require a sacrifice.

And to echo everyone else, I was way more impressed with Area 51 in person. It wasn’t even a consideration until I saw it on that overland rig today.
Didn't look close enough to see more sensors blocked, once I saw the camera blocked I won't add the winch on my initial build. The Area 51 looked great and filmed/photo'd well, I was set on Race Red and 2 Door Badlands before today. I'm switching to 4 door and would love to see more colors in person.

Thanks for the feedback. The Raptor was getting filmed today for a Virtual Auto Show and we stopped by the Filson Event to get pictures and videos of the concept Bronco's.

We have a number of Bronco enthusiasts in our store and we all agreed both Bronco's looked great and I was also very impressed with the marine grade vinyl with stitching. After seeing Area 51 in person, that is now my color of choice. I am considering moving my FE to Badlands, mainly for the interior.
I of course went into Filson- I have lived and worked in Seattle for 11 years. I never knew what great stuff was inside and how interesting that production of product was kept local. I will definitely be doing a bit of catalog shopping at home.

The Navy Pier is really gross to me. I do have two reservations. After getting to run my hands on the Vinyl, I would be very satisfied to have it. The Lightning Blue only available on the First Edition, and the Navy Pier kills all my excitement for it. Area 51 is growing on me. I have a F250 work truck incoming in anti matter blue so that one is out. Race Red is in the running.

To echo some others on the thread, seeing the A51 in person has really pushed me toward that color for my purchase. Also the MIC top really didn’t look bad at all. Definitely do NOT get the factory winch because the Front trail cam is completely obscured (I will attach a pic).

Also, I looked hard but didn’t see any rear vents (I know that’s been a question for a lot of people on the forum). I asked the rep if I could look under the seat and he said no, but also couldn’t state if there were or were not vents under the seat.

I agree, I have never been into the store before today and I was very impressed with everything I saw, a great quality product. Really glad Bronco Wild Fund and Filson got together for such a great cause. I really wanted one of the custom jackets they made for the Bronco design team.

I do want to add that I think the 4 door models look really good. I normally keep these thoughts to myself , but in photos I think the 4 doors look terrible. Too long and it just hurts the styling I thought. Seeing in person, I could only think that they looked great. They are definitely large from the side but from the front the body tapers up well starting at the base of the windshield. All that said, I am so looking forward to the 2 door!!!

120 years of automotive design says “do not put light colors on the dash pad”. Looks great, reflects like hell on the windshield. Unless you live in the PNW.

The Area 51 was real nice in person. If you are into the flat color trend right now.
I personally like it. Didn't notice the difference in black trim and MIC top.

Also there was a bit of good stuff in the bags. I got there early.

BTW, I ended up with extra stuff.
