Just like the grab handles , I believe the netting can be easily swapped out to black ones , they are attached with "bronco bolts"OBX, that is fine with me. Don't touch my BD though. Can't wait for all the blues.
The good ol days when the government, No I'm just gonna stop now!Wait, are you being serious? They used to come color matched to all the cool interiors, the reds, greens, blues, it was glorious.
I felt a more apples to apples comparison is necessary.$40K is not what $40K was even twenty years ago. Adjusting for inflation, a $40K car today was a $26.5K car in the year 2000. I'm assuming we're at least 20 years old here (i'm more than double that).
A Honda Accord v6 MSRP was $22K in 2000. Base Bronco is a cheaper car by comparison.
The dollar is not worth what we think it is. Yes, it's a HUGE expense to sign up for, especially when that monthly payment can be $500, $600, $700. But these aren't "expensive" cars by today's standards. They are "slightly above average" expense vehicles.
If there were 8 interior options, 4 seatbelt color options, 3 gauge font options, etc, then you only need to do the build and price for a Porsche Boxer or 911 and find out what the realistic costs are for that customization.
Getting blue grab handles and investing 3 hours and $12.95 of your own money to change the color is pretty much exactly what the person who spends $40K on a vehicle today will need to do in order to keep that $40K vehicle from being a $50K or $60K vehicle.
Enjoy the process of modifying your vehicle to your hearts content!
