I don’t care that the brush bar covers the Bronco lettering, but it makes less than no sense for it to be that close to the bodywork it’s supposed to protect. Needs to be angled forward in order to create a larger cone of protected space behind it.

Besides if anything solid pushes against it you’re impacting the grille in just a few inches of movement.

Would imagine it’s so close to meet some weird DOT/class length requirement.

@jewisj41. Thanks for posting this! I think this may have settled it for me and I am getting a white BadLands. I cannot for the life of me decide on a color. I want something sporty and macho but I am not doing black again; gray is gray (I've had many gray vehicles); silver is boring and everywhere; A51 is very cool but kind of a "soft" color; love CO but would tire of it quickly I think, and I just don't care for reds or dark blues ... so white it is! It contrasts very nicely with the grille/roof, and, I am planning to move to Florida in a couple of years. Can any Floridians on here confirm that white or light colors 'work" better in the Florida sun and heat?

Might just be my lack of ability to shop on mobile orrrr they made the right call with the height of it ?
Lol it makes me feel old too. I was three years old when the whole OJ thing happened and I still remember seeing it all over tv for weeks. Sorry if that makes you feel even older lol. I turn 30 early next year. My age group was the last true landline generation and that's something I'm actually very proud of. I still remember a time before the internet and before every household had a pc or cell phone. We had an old CRT TV with a wooden frame and a turn knob for the power and channels. That thing weighed like 250 lbs. Everything was bulky and heavy. I miss our old rotary phone. There is beauty in simplicity and I wish we could go back. Everyone seemed to get along better back then too and there seemed to be less hatred. Maybe I was just young and naïve but that's the way it seemed to me. Thanks for giving me an excuse to go down memory lane.
Did you say you are 30 or 50? I had the exact same conversation with my 19 year old son last week.

The more I see a squatched Bronco, the less I like it. The tires are oversized for the vehicle and the wider fender flares look ridiculous. Going for non-squatched BL for sure. Bring on the haters! ???
It’s not the tires, it’s the flares that make it look off. That pic of the Sasquatch in the dunes with regular flares looks perfect. The flares are too wide but you can thank the govt for those

As much as I generally like white cars, it just doesn't look good on the Bronco to me.

Live in Florida, we have black on black expi, with cooling leather seats. I wouldn't want to have black seats if they couldn't cool. Black also seems to show the dirt from the rains more than some colors. I am leaning toward CO.

I see that the “B.O.” is back. ? That bar makes no sense.
Only thing that might make sense is that the shape makes it fit with the winch.
I don’t know why Ford would build their factory brush guards that hide their brands name on the grill? Or, for that matter, build a winch mount that obstructs their front facing camera they promoted as a trail sight solution?
And when you put the factory guard and winch together you get this...
