Ford Partners With Aftermarket Tuners for Series of Rugged Bronco 4x4s
The Ford Bronco‘s release is just a matter of months away with many already sold out, but that hasn’t stopped the Bronco team from collaborating with some of the finest tuners around on a series of special Bronco upgrades.
Partnering with RTR Vehicles, ARB 4×4 Accessories, and 4 Wheel Parts, the Bronco now comes in a variety of options that enhance its off-roading credentials and aesthetic. For example, RTR Vehicles — helmed by Vaughn Gittin Jr. no less — takes on the heavy-duty four-door Badlands edition and gives it custom RTR rock sliders and a new rear bumper, an RTR 3D-printed grille with simulated accent lights, plus 35” Nitto Ridge Grappler tires mounted to RTR Tech-6 wheels. This is complemented by the new roof-mounted Project X lightbar, custom RTR graphics, and the 12-volt “Type S Blizzard Box” refrigerator/freeze inside the SUV, the latter of which adds some luxurious creature comforts to the rugged off-roader.
As for ARB 4×4 Accessories, it has equipped the Bronco with a new set of bumpers at the front and rear, heavy-duty rock sliders and a differential cover, but it has also put a bigger focus on going off the beaten track with its additional ARB twin compressor, jack and “Zero” refrigerator/freezer.
Rounding out the aftermarket series is 4 Wheel Parts, which takes the four-door Black Diamond series and applies a modular front bumper, skid plates and a winch platform, heavy-duty suspension components, custom roof rack and light mounts, plus a Smittybilt overhead tent and camping gear, awning and refrigerator/air system, all alongside a new set of 37” BFGoodrich mud-terrain tires that are paired with 17” Method alloy wheels.
Speaking on the collaborations, Jeff Seaman, Ford icons regional product line manager, said, “We’ve brought more companies into the personalization process a lot earlier than in the past to take advantage of the unique design aspects of Bronco and Bronco Sport, all aimed at making customization more accessible to a wider range of off-road enthusiasts — from hobbyists to professional off-roaders… In the end, no two Bronco SUVs should ever need to be the same. They can be as diverse as our customers are.”
