Ive looked at this but without having a Bronco in front of my I can’t 100% confirm. The tabs turn sideways inside the fender to lock in place. My thought would be if you’re worried you can pop off the flare and remove the locking tab. Add a stud inside the inside of the fender: Bolt, lock nut, washer, nut. That way you have a “post” inside the wheel to attach the fender too. Remove the locking tab, add a large enough washer and lock it down with a nut so it takes tools. Flip side, dependent on what the locking mechanism looks like, wondering if you can disassemble it and add a bolt on the side and that tab on the outside. I dunno, I’ll manufacture something up once I get one in my garage.
Interesting! I'm going to hit you up once you get this figured out. In the meantime, I'll throw them all in the backseat if I have to.

Still worried for non-SAS OBX owners and their painted fender flares. The second you leave it unsupervised, boom. Your fender flares are stolen.
I can see white and black being stolen but not the other colors.

Something like this "might" be an option.....

I am constantly amazed by the things people think about being stolen. I know I live in "Maybury" and don't often travel to areas of high crime, but I can't even imagine my fender flares getting swiped at my house or my cabin. I am glad that's not a big issue for me and I hope we all keep our flares!

Looks like this may have been the OBX from the preview event @LadyBronco posted. Nice to see it on the move.

Yep! It sure does. And if you look close enough you can see the black and white checkered faux flannel from a Bronco Marketeer 😆

I may be wrong, but I think people's expectation of fender flair theft on a still low production vehicle is a bit on the high side.

I think Ford puts these Broncos on the road knowing folks will video them, and just make me want mine yesterday. Damnit......o_O 🤪

Those painted fenders and the wee wheels make the truck look pedestrian, just the like the original. FMC did a good job.
Would not be caught dead with those inner tub tires. Hey I have ridden motor cycles that have narrow tires (my Honda GB 500) and I like my Ducati monster better.

Those rims actually look kinda cool when they're spinning. Just wish they were bigger. Would've got OBX non-squatch if they were beefier and saved some cash!! Wildtrak taking bites out of my paycheck!!!
Was thinking the same thing, those look real nice in motion.
