I'm going with2.3L, 10 speed automatic, 4x4 part time selectable engagement and 3.73 open style rear axle in carbonized gray body color. Adding towing package, modular roof, keyless entry pad and running boards. I'm flat towing and wonder if it requires a base plate or if bumper has tow bar hooks. Does anyone forsee a problems with any of my selections? Only adding towing for resale value.

You should have no problem flat towing. Front of vehicle has multiple frame attachment points... if that’s what you’re asking.

It kinda depends on your tow bar preference. The front tow loops on models without D-ring style can be replaced with D rings using a rough country adapter. Then you can get adapters for your towbar to fit the D ring mount. If you like the full BlueOx or Roadmaster system you will require a base plate.

Just to add to my previous post.

Trims with the modular bumper have the ends of the frame rails exposed in the front and these shackle points accessible. They are colore yellow in this pic:

For trims with the standard bumper (with or without fog lights), these ends are covered so there are two loops bolted to the underside of those same frame rails. You can kind of make them here:

Either way, it would seem that you have a mounting location easily accessible or adaptable in whatever trim/bumper combo your Bronco has.

I'm thinking I might remove the blocky plastic covers from my BB bumper and mounting the shackle mounts (yellow in your photo)
