The silver doesn’t bother me.

My first mods will to powder coat the bead locks on the forged wheels code orange (I’m going with white paint) and some code orange tow hooks. White trimmed in code orange.
You might consider orange synthetic towing shackles. They won't clank on the bumper like the metal shackles.

I wonder how an Xpel Stealth PPF wrapped Shadow Black Bronco Raptor would look? It would either blend with the aggressive fenders well or it wouldn't...

I will probably do something about those gynormous fenders. Thinking about either painting them to match the body color or wait a while to see what aftermarket options materialize. Any ideas on what painting them would run?

I bet that would look sick. Im definitely considering doing xpel stealth on mine ( ordering Oxford white ).
My GLC63 has Xpel stealth ( its originally gloss black ) and it looks insane

Of my GLC ?
of course man

The areas all around the bottom trim is a plastic kinda trim. It looks so good next to that trim so I doubt it would nothing but awesome against the fenders etc

xpel stealth is wicked expensive but well worth it in my eyes.

That looks wicked! I love those wheels as well! I think I'm going to have to go with a satin wrap on my Bronco Raptor after seeing your GLC.

Xpel is pricey, but it's definitely worth it to me. Especially, on black cars! I had my GT4 wrapped in PPF and it was the best decision I ever made. The car always looked great and I never worried about causing swirls in the paint or having other people wash it after it was wrapped.

wow. that is BEAUUUUTIFULLLLL.
Ya the PPFs are awesome.
mine is Xpel Stealth with ceramic coating.
Its hard after doing it to a car to not at least PPF it and ceramic it.
No rock pits, etc

Bestop site said they are backordered last night :(

Yeah, they were with mine, I ordered one for mine a week or so ago, and now they are prepped for shipping. Now, if they are backordered you still avoid the 7-10% price increase. Now, if my dealer can put in the order......... sent it over to them and met with them on Friday.

Anyone contact their dealer about soft top options? Thats the 1st thing I want to add, but not sure if it will be added before build happens, or should I, or can I just buy an aftermarket top?

Bestop gets a lot of good remarks in the wrangler world. The Slant back would look good on the BRaptor.

Ford has the Trektop Soft Twill Retractable on their website:

I think a pretty hefty order for baja designs is in my future. Hybrid laser bar up top and a few other flame throwers to go with it on the pillars, front bumper, etc.
