I like the roof rack from the OB Fishing concept. But I wouldn’t pay to have it installed. Half the gun if this rig will be tinkering with it to add my own touches.
Yep, I'm looking forward to this too. The Bronco looks to be even more customizable and modifiable than Wranglers so most options for me will be DIY.

I'm a little concerned that some of the accessories I really want will be hard to come by the first year so for those, I plan to just get them on my original order.

Bought a pair of their pods. 1 of the originals and 2 replacements died within 3 months. They covered them, but it was a PITA. Sold them second hand real quick and replaced with Baja Designs that have over a year and a half of constant (day and night) use with zero issues.
That blows.
I had a pair of the 4 inch 360 lights and I put them through hell. Never leaked, faded, developed condensation or failed to lite. I also like Rigid's wiring and hardware much better than Baja Designs.

I’m gonna order them but I absolutely don’t want the dealer installing them. All I need is some dip shit mechanic screwing something up.

The two things I want if offered as a DIO will not make sense $ wise

33” ATs for the OBX...great but if it ships to the dealer with 32s, the dealer won’t take them. So there would be no cost benefit of paying the incremental cost difference between the tires. I still need to pay full price for another set of 5 tires. I’d be paying 1300 or so for tires, not the 500 difference in cost between the tires. Maybe this saves us a couple hundred at most since the dealer will mount and balance etc

White Hardtop...I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. I think this will be added back as a DIO. For some reason this may create too many variables at the factory andford may prefer to have the supplier ship the white top directly to the dealer. Meaning the car needs to be shipped from the factory to the dealer with a second top, maybe a soft top, or in the case of a 2 door, a MIC top. So if the white top ends up being DIO it would HAVE to be a dual top option only, and I’d pass. I have no need and no room to store a second top. I would just pay less to have the black hardtop repainted

Was thinking same thing, but read in other posts from TN shindig that Ford said 33” would be a problem.

Plus the initial markup from Ford kind-of negates the free install.
Hasn't it been confirmed that the under invoice dealerships will be selling DIO's at invoice since they are now added to your build sheet?

Nothing. The aftermarket will do it all better and I won't be paying them off for 5 years.
I don't get this argument. Just increase the amount of your down payment to cover the cost of your DIO's. Problem solved.

Edit. And to answer the question.
Tube doors
Rear cargo cover
Sliding tailgate
Winch mount
Roof rails?
And probably a bunch of other stuff

What is the 2.3 tune mentioned above? Do Ford dealers do this on their other vehicles? Any link with more info?

Do you think they will offer a factory lift for those not getting the Sasquatch?
