Was thinking of putting these on the side quarter panel but wonder if they may be a little cramped looking, especially if you add a side stripe.
here it is on an old one and here is a pic of a new bronco to see how much room there is on that quarter panel
I think it works - thoughts?
i already have them sitting on my workbench waiting on my Bronco
I was suspicious they wouldn’t fit. Now that I have them in hand.... I’m REALLY worried they won’t fit. Bigger than I remembered on my 72

Thanks for the info. That’s not what I want to hear. I’ve been worried about it too. That’s why I haven’t ordered them yet. Thinking aftermarket will surly have them designed and sized to fit this Gen.

I believe the first company to take this old badge style and change "Sport" to Badlands, BD, Base, OBX, Squatch, etc. would make a lot of money.

I wonder if a heavy duty magnet backing would work in place of screws or two sided tape? Aftermarket, I am looking at you.

It would work on the old ones, but I am not sure about the body composition on the '21 - I would suspect it has more aluminum than steel. It might be thin enough to have a magnet on the back side of the fender! :)

Ah, good point. I didn't think about the aluminium body - magnet on the back might work if it's accessible and thin enough - good idea. Do we know what the current emblem option is made out of?

This was my plan... to match my old '73.

Find someone with a 3d printer? Or trace one of them into some steel cut it, dremel it, get it plated or painted.
