While we await the arrival of the full-size Bronco, Ford has announced partnerships with aftermarket suppliers RTR Vehicles, ARB 4×4 Accessories, and 4 Wheel Parts to bring customization goodies to the Bronco and Bronco Sport. Though these are the first third-party collaborations for the Bronco line, Ford says they won’t be the last.
Options on the table include suspension and lift kits, custom wheels and body components, performance driveline parts, and accessories like tents, lighting, and storage racks. And while the full-size Bronco won’t arrive at dealers until this summer, each supplier is already offering accessories for the Sport that’s been on sale since the Fall.
Every supplier brought a unique 4-door Bronco to this week’s Easter Jeep Safari to join Ford’s own custom build. Ford prefers to refer to this event as the “Easter Safari.” No surprise, considering the Jeep Wrangler is the Ford Bronco‘s biggest off-road rival.
4 Wheel Parts gave its truck a new front bumper, skid plate, and winch platform, a roof rack with light mounts, 37-inch tires, and a rooftop tent, among other upgrades. ARB 4×4 Accessories’ upgrades include new front and rear bumpers, heavy-duty rock sliders, a differential cover, and an onboard refrigerator. RTR Vehicles gave its Bronco a refrigerator, too, along with a new 3-D printed grille, custom rock sliders and rear bumper, 35-inch tires, and a light bar.
ARB 4×4 Accessories also kitted out a Bronco with rock sliders, new front and rear bumpers, a new differential cover, an air compressor, and a fridge.
RTR Vehicles will offer a bumper with optional tire swing-out for up to 40-inch tires, rock sliders, both beadlock and non-beadlock wheel offerings, suspension enhancements supporting up to 37” tires, RTR grille with lighting, and a light bar ready to receive various lighting configurations.
Whatever your flavor of “Built Wild,” there will be a Bronco accessory to match.
