@72roadster are you using modified links that are sorta similar to the original round of links that still say access denied? Or did you figure out a new way to view the images?

for the most part it is just modifying the original links to bust the cache in akamai
by add ?1231241234 or something at the end

I have been curious about this for some time. It is highly unusual for a manufacturer to call the exact same paint code different names (total nightmare for the parts department as well!). And have long suspected that there will be a different clear or paint process even if over the same color coat.

This is an interesting development. A few other users and I have gone back and forth about CG and how it has changed appearance based on what was sprayed and when.

Update: FWIW, I reached out to a friend who owns a body shop and they do not have any paint codes from Ford for CG or JFG.

And paint codes have not been uploaded into the database: 2021 Bronco paint codes

And the other thread using the CG "touch up paint" where the paint code was supplied is also not coming up with anything out to the body shops. That is an internal "J" code as best as I can tell. Meaning nobody knows how to mix that paint yet outside of Ford.

Where all this goes, I don't know. Currently the best guess is that we have not seen the production version of cactus gray, but instead we've seen:

1-off hand-painted Showcase model using hand-mixed paint formulation:
7D775A4B-5CFD-4495-9511-54372C9A5CBA.jpeg


And we have seen pre-production paint-booth testing spray, however this does not guarantee that the full production-grade and final paint is being seen here (ie: could be a base layer without tinted clear, but tinted clears are usually "tri-coat" and have an up-charge...)

And we have seen pre-production, Mexican-built Cactus Gray:

And also American-built pre-production pre-early-assembly Cactus Gray testing vehicle:

Same color. Ford gives them different names occasionally, but same paint code. I remember Focus renamed all the colors at launch (pitch black, infra red, cloud 9 white, but all were the same colors)

Yes, have seen that paint card.

If you took that picture yourself that you will attest to the low quality of materials and very high likelihood that the colors won't be turning out anything like those sheets. The code NE also doesn't represent anything outside of "Ford land". Will need to see the exact materials and mixture to make the color(s) to know if they are actually the same.

I can't believe a lot of this is developed on a live site. Even Wordpress is more advanced than this.

Yes, these sheets aren't Representative, but are proof that Fighter Jet and Cactus will be the same color and will get the same touch up paint from Ford.

However, I remember seeing the body shop book for Red Candy years ago and there were like 80 different color mixes for the same color due to production variance so I get where you're coming from.

Can you delete the ugly Wildtrak graphics? No desire to see that crap on my Bronco.

Peak at wildtrack graphics

each trim old vs new, until the original cache clears anyway




I swear the offset on these wheels/tires on Sasquatched models on Ford site is different and looks way better than they look in person.

In these pics, the wheel/tire is either wider, or more offset, and gives it a wider stance.

In photos of Squatches in person, the wheel/tire is not even flush with the edge of the flare.

I liked the old Navy Pier! This interior looks terrible! The blue is darker and the gray is lighter!

The interior clashes with ITSELF!

Surely this pic is off
Perhaps the designer is a Civil War buff.
