Get the steel bumpers and have them chromed and throw on a set of these

I personally just dont think chrome bumpers and wheels, or chrome in general, would look right on the new Bronco.

Same reason I dont think some of the early vintage Bronco colors would look right on the modern Bronco.

Just doesnt work. In my opinion.

Quick question, and sorry if this has been answered/explained previously. The grey top obviously does not match the rest of the car (fenders, bumpers, window panel, etc). IF we did want to wait for the 2022 models that we could order the painted black top, would we need to cancel our reservation and lose out on no mark ups on the cost?

This looks bad...I will never understand the Gray top, and I am really hoping a Black Painted hardtop can be ordered in Dec/Jan.

Gray goes with EVRYTHANG! Um, no it does not. I'm sure all those parts can be painted for less than $1895. I am definitely not going to buy a second hard top. Def. the softop on a 2-door Base AMB.

Same, I'm leaning on not placing my order because of the top.
I was thinking the same but now I'm leaning towards getting it wrapped and not waiting an extra year. Decisions, decisions

I personally LOVE the faded black tops in these pictures. It gives us MY21 folks a way of identifying each other on the road since MY22 and beyond will be black or white? before we know it there will be a MY21 special wave for each other

I'm also growing to enjoy all the harshly-lit, badly-composed factory floor photos. Every time a new one hits the forum, there are multiple people waving their white "CANCEL" flag, and that could potentially move the rest of us ahead in line.

All,

The Red dot on your tire side wall indicates: it's a way of indicating where the centrifugal force tending to pull the rotating tire away from the wheel is greatest.

They are rushing out an incomplete product. The MIC top looks terrible on most colors and this misalignment is just terrible.
you are not supposed to see these pictures. These pictures are leaked. These models are for testing only. Ford hasn't released anything yet. stop complaining.

people should be happy the top matches the fenders.

just wait when they come out with the black top option in an entirely different material and keep the grey fenders without addressing it. pretty sure it will look worse than the grey/grey option they rolled out

I thought this thread was to talk about how the AB paint looked in the sun. But I would wager most of the posts are about the MIC top. I'm not knocking any of you, and personally I hope you all keep cancelling your reservations so mine moves up the list?.

But have any of you thought about just getting the soft top, and buying the hardtop next year as an accessory?

Seems like you all are getting all sorts of mad because you can't get everything as you like it from day one. For me, I figured that there was bound to be design elements that probably didn't live up to all of the hype, as there is in every car, just at this point none have been show stoppers for me.

Maybe try not to feed off all the negatives, and look at the positives, if you still can't stomach it there's always next year, and I personally thank you for moving me up on the reservation list, and one day closer to my Bronco than I was before. ?

I reserved an Outer Banks and will be getting it in Antimatter Blue.
I am glad that it will have body color fender flares, handles, etc. as that will help to offset the mismatch in the grey colors. (Though I am guessing these are all pre-production vehicles and we are not seeing a finished product.)
I seriously want the black hard top.....but I will settle for the grey MIC. I am not going with a soft top and drive it around in Michigan winters.
I am at the very top of my budget with my selection as is....so I am a bit disappointed that I won't be able to get exactly what I want at time of order. (Unless my reservation is far enough down the list for the late availability black painted top.)
