You’ve taken delivery of your Bronco and you want to add some personal flair. Vaughn Gittin Jr’s Ford Bronco RTR parts will become available this week. There is limited stock of each item, and doors open to the online store Friday March 11th at 6 PM, EST.
Ford and Vaughn Gittin Jr have an amicable relationship. MC&T previously reported that Ford tabbed him as a strategic aftermarket partner for the Bronco, presumably as a result of nabbing a 5th overall in King of The Hammers driving the Bronco 4400. Gittin has souped-up Broncos before, he previously showed off his RTR Bronco in a walk around video showcasing the off-road SUV’s upgrades last year in Moab, Utah.
As of right now there are four new parts teased to be added to the RTR catalog. Those new additions include a light bar (lights sold separately) that will run $249.99. Also featured on the RTR website is a Molle Accessory Plate which is compatible with their spare tire carrier which comes in at $149.99. Additionally Bronco footrests and an adjustable tailgate stop will be available running $184.99 and $149.99 respectively. Actual in-stock quantities are unknown at this time.
The RTR website has a countdown clock under the “view details” portion of what will presumably be the online shopping page as of right now. Also featured under the Bronco tab on RTR’s website is a video breakdown of differences between the Bronco Fun-Haver off-road and the RTR Bronco. The main takeaway from that is the Fun-haver is for hardcore enthusiasts that like to push the limits whereas the RTR is geared toward the “everyday enthusiast” looking for a casual uptick in style and performance.
Vaughn Gittin Jr’s RTR company started in 2007 and works closely with Ford Performance, with the first RTR Ford Mustang debuting in 2009. But with customer tastes shifting, the Ford Bronco presented an opportunity to expand the company’s current product lineup.
