Makes it feel after market, for OEM that's a miss for me.
Seems like they need some kind of decal or lettering on the bar to take the place of what it being blocked by the grill guard. That could create some interesting possibilities.

I am guessing you haven't had a soft top before? Jeeps are the same way. It's vinyl so its gonna be wavy.
Easy on a warm day, a pain on a cold day when taking off and on.


Yes, living in the upper midwest I have no interest in a soft top if it is to be driven year round. Hard top and add a Sunrider in the summer in place of the hard panels will be my preference.

Love everything about this but that dumb looking brush guard. Can't wait for aftermarket accessories. Maybe even a bumper with winch mount internal to help with visibility of the front facing camera.
At least that one should not be in the way of the front camera

Thanks for the pictures. The Badlands looks perfect with 33” tires, and doesn’t scream brodozer! Stay classy my friends...
This is my thought exactly. Will I feel awkward with 35s driving through the suburbs given this will be my DD? Sasquatch looks great in pics but thinking that 33s are plenty big.

Anyone have thoughts on driveability differences between the two? Are 35s brutal on highways?

I have no idea why people think 35's are awful anywhere.
My truck rides like a limo on the highway, awesome around town, and when you need to pop a curb, you just go.

Result of never having owned an off-road vehicle. I'm upgrading from 17yrs of driving a used '99 dodge intrepid and mazda 6. This is going to be quite the change but I can't wait to have a vehicle I love instead of one that I despise.

I suspect the squatch bilsteins will be very forgiving and those 35's have aLOT of rubber to flex....my Raptor handles speed bumps better at 40mph than 10....and it laughs at potholes.

This pic is making me rethink Badlands. I think I may go back to Black Diamond, as I’m going carbonized gray but the matching grill really doesn’t work with it. The black Diamond grill looks much better.

Everybody will go buy a RONC bar!

Kinda sucks the Bronco logo gets blocked.
This is what stupid looks like. They raised the horizontal bar of the brush guard in order to allow the front camera (which is an option) to be used, perhaps when they realized that the winch option blocks the view of the original position of the camera. Instead of repositioning the camera yet again, they block the "Bronco" emblem with the brush guard in order for the repositioned camera to have a view. This is stupid being covered up with more stupid. There's a lot of this in this whole Bronco program. I'm used to it. As long as you keep your expectations low, they will strive to go below your expectations. Using this simple performance metric, they are succeeding in their program. We should all be happy.

Great! Easy problem to solve and gives me a reason to tinker!
I've never painted wheels. Is this something that could be done easily at home since you can remove them, or would you take it to a shop?
