I’m not too worried about the strength of the safari bar. It’s mostly to prevent soccer moms from backing into my new Bronco at the grocery store. I think it should be able to do that just fine. I’d much rather have a broken bull bar, than a broken front-end.
It might stop a shopping cart. If someone actually backs into it the damage might be worse than if you had nothing. These things are horrible. They offer the appearance of protection but give you none.

Not so sure on that bar. Buddy of mine had a nice ss smitty built that destroyed the whole front clip of his pickup instead of just damaging the bumper.
The RC bar looks like it is from the sxs line. Made from woballoy.
Those are flimsy accessories I would expect your typical jeep guy to buy.

I'd consider non-structural things they sell, that's about it.
I have a set of their neoprene seat covers, they do their job (are waterproof and fit very well) and were not anywhere near the $800 Bartact wanted for theirs.
Lifts and such? Nope.
Steps/rails? Hit and miss. For steps the quality seems ok and they serve the function.
Body Armor, also a pass.
These accessories look pretty anemic against that big vehicle.

Anyone know the tire size?

Also the bottom end of the front bar look like they will catch stuff when backing down things. Guess you just gotta go forward. Light bar up to looks nice. Love the blue. I will likely build a spacer lift unless one impresses me.

Don't know if I like it, but what I do like is that it appears to be for the non-mod bumper. I'm really hoping aftermarket realizes there's a whole bunch of Broncos without the factory mod bumper that want to buy stuff!
This. I'm currently inquiring about tow bar base plates. I make sure they know there are two bumper/bash plate set ups. FWIW, just by looking, I think some accessories for a Ranger will fit on the standard bumper.

Yeahhhh that's gonna be a no from me, dawg. Doesn't look like it's mounted evenly, and doesn't really even look good either.

So besides wheels, tires, lights, bar... what else did they do to fit those 295/70/17 NRG on there?

We are never happy...its too tall, its too short, its made crappy, it makes my butt look big, I cant fit 10 lights on it.

It is what it is...a light bar that makes that stocker bumper look ok.

Perhaps this is a better solution to ward off those pesky soccer moms ???

Just torch a hole in the plow for the camera on your Wildtrak...geesh.

I kinda like the wheels. But what I'd really like to get a look at would be a set of steelies with MT's mounted on them.
Not a big fan of spending money on accessories that will never really serve a practical purpose.

So, reading these responses... there’s no point in making any of the little light bars that folks wanted a while back? Been planning on making a few for a while, just haven’t gotten all my dimensions together yet.
