I know that the Bronco uses both Torx and Torx plus. I have read somewhere that Torx plus is only for the bolts on the modular bumper, someone can confirm?
I am not gonna have the modular bumper so I am trying to see if I need Torx Plus bites or not.

All of the "bronco bolts" are torx plus, from what I've read here.

Same question for me. Does Ford provide a tool kit with this stuff?

What size Torx and Torx plus does the Bronco need?

Rather not buy this giant set of each and not use 95% of the sizes.

You're looking at this all wrong.

There is a tool that you do not own. You have an excuse to own the tool. Why is this even a question?

Buy the Torx Plus.


I got a cool American made set off of Amazon. There's actually a lot of these fasteners on Fords.

I haven’t tried all the bolts on my 2dr but the there is a small tool bag that comes with the Bronco and the torx bit in the bag does not work on the modular bumper. It appears to fit but isn’t quite tight enough so it just strips the bolts.

I read that in another thread here and purchased a single Torx+ 40 bit on Amazon and it worked great putting my brush bar on.

Country of origin says China? I am a HUGE USA made buyer.. I wish they were. I bought the OTC brand also made in China.
Was going to mention that. Edited.

Amazon description is incorrect. I bought these over the Neiko because someone on here confirmed they were US-made. He was right.

I bought the set too and noticed "made in china." Pleasant surprise if they are made in the U.S.! Mine should be here by Thursday.

This is the correct answer. Any reason to buy tools is a good reason!

Why does the air filter housing have torx plus bolts? Dropped the damn 30 bit provided in the bronco kit last night in the engine bay. Searched for 45 minutes with a light & mirror and nowhere to be found. Pulled the liners, checked in parts of the frame too.
