So we haven't seen much of the Base Bronco. Here's one in Rapid Red without the Sasquatch package. Interestingly, this 2-Door Base has a painted hard top installed and that hardtop is missing the rear side windows. While I like the steelies, the smaller tires are less to my liking. What do y'all think‽

This is exactly what I ordered. New tires will be definitely going on mine. Thank you for posting. The pictures are great!

Hm. What are we thinking of the comparison here?
My order is 2-door BD in Iconic...in large part because of the blue interior accents. But thinking of changing to the Rapid Red.

I know the grab handles are interchangeable...but it seems the tops of the grab handles have the same color as the dash, Dark Space Grey in BD. Do any of the Black grab handles from other trims carry the dark space grey tops???

I did not clearly read if this is a Black Shadow modular top. I think it is because the rear windows are out. Is that correct?

Boggles the mind why they would even put 30" tires on there. Who's going off road with those? And they are only all season. Why push the off road capabilities of a vehicle and then slap on some street tires that look like they belong on an economy car.
Yeah, those are just some rollers to get it to your house. Everyone, including Ford, fully expects you to change those tires out just as soon as you can. Those were not designed to stay.

The base is set up for customization. It's a BYOT (bring your own tire) vehicle.
Fully get that the base is a blank slate for someone wanting to do their own thing. But when you tout the offroad capabilities of a vehicle, showing it taking on all kinds of environmental obstacles, at least make even the base model have the ability to do at least some fun off road stuff out of the box.

I think it will still handle quite a bit. Those tires look tiny compared to the other models, but they are actually about one inch taller and about 3/4 inch wider than the stock size tires on my 91 full size Bronco (235/75R15).

If you want to build a ride to your specific needs, you will save a lot of money. Buying the vehicle with larger tires and then replacing them is a waste of money...been there and done that with a Jeep.

Wow, that’s a throw back, I took my driving test in a “new” ‘75 Pinto. :oops:
LOL, mine was taken in a new '76. Was the sporty version in bright Orange. Didn't have the nasty hubcaps, they were more like the Mustang Magnum style rims. For the time, it was a good car that got great MPG. We had 2 and no issues whatsoever. Sure was much better to have a hatch for hauling than an ugly plastic wood sticker clad station wagon.
