In researching Bronco colors and the 2.3 Ecoboost, I ended up on the Mustang6g forums and eventually into the Shelby GT350 thread and have been having bad thoughts lol. I still want a Bronco, but for $50k, can get a very nice low mileage GT350. Amazing car. The GT500 is just too much.
They are very pretty ponys. I'm always finding myself searching Bronco colors and in awe when a Shelby pic pops up. I've also been eyeing Iconic Silver. 😆

For some reason I wouldn't feel boring behind the wheel of this Shelby.
Even after 5 years. Just my humble opinion 😌.

That Mustang looks sharp but the CG Bronco doesn’t compare.

Just think If Carbonized Gray can make this 1987 Bronco II look good, imagine what it can do for the 2021's. Just need the right stripes, rims and imagination. 😆

AMEN. If I were king I would immediately ban all automotive non-colors (black, white, silver, any of the 5,000 shades of gray). Our roads look like something out of a dystopian sci-fi movie.

Look at this ridiculous "color palette" offered by Volvo on their S90 sedan. These are literally the only "colors" you can choose from:

I agree they could use a couple "colors" but the "colors" would still be non pllsrosing like dark metallic red or blue. Some cars, like the S90 sedan are best left to neutral non polarizing colors. Some cars look good in bright fun colors, like sports cars, others look hideous in the same colors, like sedans and minivans. Bronco can go either way but not many cars can pull off a coolant green color.

it's not really the pictures. If you walk around the vehicle, it will do the same thing just depending on where the light is hitting it. It's really nice in person.

I just walked by a rubicon today with the 33 inch KO2’s and those are some big tires. Definitely bigger in person than what pictures online led me to believe. I really think the 4 door on 33’s or Sasquatch both look really good, just depends on your taste. Here’s two comparable side pics that maybe help?

As someone who has been there done that 33s or 35s dance before...I have 33”MT tires on my camper, 35” MT on both my truck and jeep and wife’s GC runs 32” AT tires. If you have any doubt that you may want 35s down the road or have envy seeing a Bronco in person with 35s, do yourself a favor and just get the 35s from the start.

Since the Bronco will be my wife’s, I’ll be going non-squatch BL and staying with the 33s. That 1” higher w/ 35s is big for her getting in and out without steps and Im not installing steps.

Her BL w/ 33s will be able to tackle 99% of the offroad trails that any bronco with 35s will be running.

4-Door Bronco Badlands in Carbonized Gray 5.jpg


Does anyone else feel like these series stickers appear to cheapen the look of the Bronco .....IMO proper emblems would be better or at least have something embossed with some depth to it .........

Body color “center/b” pillar...? Am I crazy or is this something new? All I’ve ever seen is the crappy faded MIC plastic center pillars.

Hate to say it but if they don’t offer a badge-delete option, I’m getting out the dental floss.
