Whose else do ya recommend?
I have used deAutoLED for my TDI, but like the Diodes they are pricey. As for my Ford Lasfit and Diodes. My office is at 7700ft and I recommend high quality amber LED fogs.

Bliss appears to be stand alone on Badlands. Also the Bliss sensors are in the tail lights.

  • Lane-Keeping System
  • BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert
I found that no where in any of the Ford literature....

BLIS has nothing to do with the headlights.

I suspect that may be the case. It doesn't say anything about mid package under the list of options, but reading between the lines your probably right.

There have been many an argument on this site due to the wording of "optional" that Ford has put out. Hopefully we'll know soon enough but like me, I think many agree instead of saying optional, they should have just put a little * by it with a statement below that says Included in the Optional Yada Package.

In other words... optional does not mean stand alone but in many cases simple means part of an optional package.

Oracle - they do have nice databases but their software....not so much.
Nah.. their databases suck. They are set up wierd, have the worse drivers, and defaults to case sensitive searching.

The only thing they have going for them in more Platforn variety. That's why many go with MS Sql or free versions of things like SqlAnywhere, post gre etc ;)

Well, I was more of a semi-admin person back in another career.

Non led taillights look so much cleaner imo mmmmmmm... Plus I won't mind changing a bulb a couple times if ever.

Sorry, but this doesn't sound correct according the literature that Ford has already put out.

Ford says the BLISS comes with the Mid Package, but the Badlands does not come with the Mid Package yet comes with Signature headlamps... So either the Badlands comes with a non Bliss version of the headlamps, or it gets BLISS because of what you are saying...

but if you look at the Ford literature, it spefically references where the Outer Banks get the BLISS, as well as Signature headlamps whereas the Badlands it makes no mention of Bliss, but says it gets the Signature headlamps...

Also, it's expensive to manufacture two different harnesses for the lights vs just make one harness that can be used for all lights...

My guess is that ALL trims will come with led lights, and if the BLISS is integrated in the headlamps (which I don't think it will be, I think it will be integrated in the rear view mirrors since those change with the mid package anyway whereas the lights do not), then the headlamps will change to include those that have the sensors....

Yes, this is going to be interesting. Ford has not been all that clear about the taillights and BLIS integration. It was much more up-front and transparent with Ranger pre-orders.

However, when Ranger pre-orders were happening, training, literature and internal conferences had already been had with the staff who did the pre-sales. We're currently before that point on the Bronco timeline which means that it may all be transparent and obvious once they push their internal product education.

And all that being said, and in looking at the close-up pics of taillights from the reveals i'm pretty confident it's going to work like this:

LED tail lamps = BLIS requirement (whatever package/trim/standalone that requires)

Bulb tail lamps = no BLIS, no cross-traffic, no back-up sensors (They seem to be integrated into the taillights and back-up genitalia)(Sorry, it looks like a dong sticking out from the spare tire).

If that was the case, how do you think they would handle the Badlands that is listed with Signature LED lighting standard but doesn't have BLISS standard?
