Are you going to do aftermarket bumpers?

A friend of mine gave me a few more pics of the ARB Bronco build to share. Since it’s a Badlands 2.7, it’s close to my spec.

Here it is with the soft top and their new hydraulic jack interfaced with the rock rail/step (frame mounted)

Here is a rear view of their new bumper:

You can also see the red diff cover poking out there ^

The roof rack with a light bar under looks a little cleaner.

The instrument panel looks cool and their Linx system is slickly mounted to the little point on the dash. I love this pic because it’s a preview of how my build is supposed to be.

If any of you have feedback on these things, it’s all preproduction stuff, but production intent.

Not those bumpers. Also that jack is idiotically expensive.

Definitely getting the twin compressor and mount though.

That's why I didn't order the Yakima rack from Ford. I knew some better options would be along very quickly. Im hoping for a 2dr rear seat delete option and a little shorter storage drawer in the back like that with a platform that goes all the way to the front seats. Be good for the dogs to stand on.

I really like the rear bumper but their front bumper doesn't do it for me.

Honestly there will be so many options for aftermarket bumpers, racks, rails, etc. I'm not sure why anyone is paying so much extra for the limited selection of factory stuff.

This - I think it's super that Ford will carry a lot of the customizations and warranty them, but it's really looking like there's going to be someone making one of everything for the Bronco and for me at least, spending time in my own garage giving some tender love to my vehicle is time well spent. Ford's even gone to make it easy to go to the market and do your own customizations.

And let's face it, mine will be stock for a short time, then I'll make it my own.

I am waiting to see their traditional bumper like the rep mentioned in the video, and a solution for the front camera. They all glossed right over that part, even 4WP. I would also like to see bumpers that are not tied to fender flare width. Nobody wants Squatch width bumpers of you pull or change your flares.

I love the front bumper, but wish the light bar was just an opening so that you can use light bars from Rigid, ADD, etc.

It would also be sweet if ARB made drawer and storage solutions for those planning a back seat delete on the 2 DR! (Although that may be a long shot I know)

I don’t get the impression Ford left them a lot of time for design and fabrication work.
