The plastic will have texture to it, which they may or may not be able to sand smooth enough to get a good looking paint job. Usually people end up buying the paintable ones from the manufacturer.
Most of the my Ford black mirrors have been a satin finish, perfect for painting?

You don’t even need a lift for 33’s or 34’s. They will nicely fill the wheel wells on the 100% stock suspension. Just be sure to get the shortest gears you can and go bananas with a cool rim/tires package to make her unique.
You think that gonna be easy like this? I lean for a BB with 33!

The ones I saw at CEL were definitely not intended to be painted. They have a subtle texture like most black/grey plastic trim pieces.

I’m not an auto body guy though, so maybe it’s not as big of a deal as I think.

AMB 2 door Sasquatch looks amazing. Going to be super impressive in person.
I’m conflicted. I saw the AMB OBX prototype, and was not that impressed. But it was also horrible parking lot lighting, at night, it looked black basically. In these pictures though it does look really really good.

You can just barely see the color in the picture I took here, it was only noticable with light directly on it.

Uncle Mike posted some pretty cool shots on Twitter of a Bronco he’s testing out.

Thanks for posting the pics with the Bronco and Defender...the defender is one of my dream cars; but, the bronco is the better choice for me...same price (or less) for a brand new vehicle. I’m sure I’m one of the last reservations so it’s going to be a long wait!

I have to say, this thread’s got me all shook up. I was a Badlands guy until I saw this OuterBanks rig 🤤. The more interior options, the better looking front grill and removal of the sway bar disconnect has me thinking this may be a better option for me. The only draw back is I want 33’s instead of 35’s on the Sasquatch.

So that's rock crawling?
Could probably do that in a Honda Civic.
Guess I don't need a Bronco after all. :p
Yup, I call it 'rock posing'.

Blasphemy!!!
Sorry. I should have kept that to myself. Too many flame wars on that topic already. However, other that the overland concept, this is the first time I’ve thought that. I look forward to seeing more pictures of non-preproduction Broncos.
