My advice if you’re planning to roll that money into the loan is to talk to the shop where you want to do the work - the dealer isn’t actually doing it - find out what they’ll charge you and have your bank isssue guaranteed funds to the dealer for the vehicle and a check to the shop for the upfit. You’ll avoid the dealership tax of going through their aftermarket guy and it being marked up 10%-20% or more.
Does this allow you to maintain factory warranty on these add-on parts, if it is correct Ford warranties add-on parts purchased though them?

(which gets us into the whole discussion about the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and it's impact on the Bronco aftermarket parts, but I'll save that for a future thread, this one is about tires.)

Ford doesn't warranty anything the dealer installs that isn't a Ford part. Ford warranties Ford parts whether your dealer installs them or you do the work yourself. Ford isn't going to warranty a Rubicon Express lift kit whether it was installed by you, your dealer or your local shop. If those parts fail and they cause a failure of something related, you're on the hook. If a Ford part fails and causes a problem, that's what we call a "causual part" so anything that "causual part" takes out as part of the failure is covered. Ford does have QVM parts like a Roush S/C kit that isn't a Ford part, but is certified by Ford not to void the warranty if a powertrain failure is the result of supercharger and the ECM is still running a Roush/Ford certified tune.

96 bronco sport 91 comanche eliminator 93 v8 zj 80 amc eagle 85 cj7 laredo 79 ford quadravan(inoperable due to tragic fire)
I was initially thinking about GtRadial Komodos which ive had on my comanche for a year and a half. they have minimal wear from maximum abuse. I use it on a jungle farm everyday climbing up on a compost pile back in the banana patch 4 days a week. However the sizes available will probably smaller than i run on the bronco. I love all bias swampers and may go with a set of LTB or standard TSLs. But more realisticly I could go with some Goodyear MTRs or Baja Claws both almost as good as a set of half worn Boggers(i ran a half worn set on 3 cjs and a bronco for 6 years and loved em). I hope they come equipped with Duratracs because I've always wanted to try em. Those tires will help me determine which brand to go with for a while. Regular ATs arent really good enough for me BFG KO2 are all over maui and I have found that they wear fast on the edges where all their bite is. But for sure after the warranty is long gone and its lifted I'm gonna get the biggest super swampers I can afford. Boggers are like riding on a magic cushion of confidence. One of my old wheeling spots in ohio had a lot of people dumping there(it was on the edge of a n old dump) every once in a while you'd see a pile of nails from old burnt lumber, never deterred me one bit. If you live somewhere with a lot of hills you may want to groove em to keep from sliding while side hilling. Thats where Baja Claws and Goodyear MTRs are good they have a bogger like pattern but with other features to give you lateral grip.

No Goodyear Wranglers under any circumstance. My work trucks always had Wranglers and frequently got sidewall punctures. I never replaced a set because one at a time they would sidewall puncture and have to be replaced.

No BFG All Terrains, Good enough tread design, but it seemed to me the first half wears quickly and the second half never gives up, leading to a lot of miles on less than optimum tread.

I'm running on Cooper Discoverer AT3's on my F250 and Jeep Lj. Great on road, good in snow and
off road. The XLT version has extra sidewall protection.

I'd run whatever comes on my new Bronco for a while but would probably have to upgrade to the Coopers before the stock tires wore out. I replaced the near drag slick stock Michelin LTX's on my F250 at 20K because I couldn't take having to chain up even in light off road snow or mud anymore.
