Ford and Jeep aren’t exactly on the best of terms as of late. Ever since the 2021 Ford Bronco made its debut, the Blue Oval has gone all in on trying to capture customers away from the all-mighty Wrangler. Based on the sheer number of orders that Ford has received for the reborn 4×4, it’s safe to say this is working to some extent at the very least. In order to truly capture the hearts of off-road enthusiasts, a vehicle needs to be supported by tons of aftermarket accessories to make life easier out on the trails. Going full troll, Ford showed fans exactly what sort of parts they can expect to see by releasing four unique Broncos in the middle of Jeep’s annual Moab Easter Safari. We’ve already highlighted the build done by Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s RTR, so now it’s time to breakdown 4 Wheel Parts’ 4WP Ford Bronco.
4 Wheel Parts has been a part of the off-roading community since 1961, and knows a thing or two about providing customers with quality components. Take one look at their Black Diamond Ford Bronco build, and this becomes evident. The SUV features a mix of 4 Wheel Parts Factory accessories, as well as parts selected from other trusted aftermarket suppliers. Starting with the basics, this 4WP Ford Bronco now rides on a set of 2.5 VST adjustable coilovers, providing 3.5-inches of lift of the standard suspension. This kit allows for anywhere from 1-inch to 3.5-inches of lift, which gives customers to run tires anywhere from 33-inches to 37-inches in diameter. This particular build utilizes some chunky 37-inch BFGoodrich KM3’s, wrapped around 17×8-inch Method 310 wheels. Keeping that suspension in check are some 4WP upper control arms, and an adjustable rear track bar.
Any off-road vehicle needs a bit of extra protection for some added peace of mind. 4 Wheel Parts understands this, and designed some pretty slick armor pieces for this particular 4WP Ford Bronco. The kit starts with the 4WP front and rear bumper treatments, which have been designed with some additional clearance over the stock units. The front bumper also comes complete with two 2-inch Rigid quads lights, six-inch LED bars, a custom welded bull bar, and a 4WP 12,000 lb winch plate. Better yet, this upgraded bumper retains the function of the 2021 Ford Bronco’s adaptive cruise control and factory parking sensors. Out back, you’ll notice a spare tire relocation kit with license plate mount, as well as a new third brake light. Underneath the truck sits five skid plates and a set of 4WP rock sliders.
In terms of visual tweaks, the 4WP Ford Bronco brings a bit of retro-flair to the new-age 4×4. Gone are the factory fender flares, replaced by the brand’s new flare delete kit. This helps keep the truck narrow for when you’re out on the tight trails, and harks back to the narrow-body first-gen SUV. 4 Wheel Parts has also taken advantage of Ford’s factory mounting points and installed some unique A-pillar light pods. On the roof you’ll find a Smittybilt overhead tent and awning, as well as a massive light bar. Other modification highlights include a rear sliding tray with a mounted fridge, a rear folding tailgate tray, and an interior accessories rack installed on the dash.
While there is still going to be some time before 2021 Ford Bronco customers start to take delivery of their new SUVs, this build has us pumped. If I had a deposit down on one of these iconic 4x4s, this is exactly the sort of look I’d want it to have. It’s so perfectly old-school while providing all of the modern amenities we like to have for an afternoon of off-road wheeling. Which build do you prefer, the 4WP Ford Bronco or the RTR offering?
