Since the end of last week, it has been possible to . Whether you’re seriously intending to purchase on or not, with all the customization possibilities, lending yourself to the exercise is somewhat more fun than building your next… EcoSport, let’s say.
The hardest part is of course to choose one of the six versions offered. Those would be the basic model, Big Bend, Black Diamond, Outer Banks, Badlands and Wildtrak. We have to say that this here is the most interesting selection of model names around, with all due respect to Jeep and its Willys, Rubicon, Sahara, etc.
For the fun of it, I chose a two-door Outer Banks version. Base price: $46,999. The first operation was then the choice of a colour. I opted for Cactus Grey; it s different and anyways I wouldn t want to come across another yellow Bronco on an off-road trip.

I then decided to keep the original wheels. 35-inch tires are nice, but for everyday life, I’m not so sure they’re wise. Also, at $7000...
I then opted for the $1,000 modular front bumper. Because it gives the Bronco a more rugged look, but also because I m just playing with Monopoly money here. Next came the selection of the $300 mudguards and the $495 roof rails. Useful, in both cases.

I passed on the protective front grille because it would undo the look of the front end. It will be useful for some though and at $150, it s not too much to ask.
