Ford set the stage, Archetype Racing added the spark – together, they're turning your Bronco into the ultimate road companion. Buckle up and let’s roll!

Inside the “Accessory Ready” Mindset

For passionate off-roaders, customization is not just a luxury; it is an expectation. Ford has been at the forefront with their "Accessory Ready" philosophy for its iconic Bronco. But what exactly does "Accessory Ready" mean?

"Accessory Ready" is Ford's answer to personalized adaptability. The Bronco, beyond its rugged charm and performance, has been intricately designed with strategic mount points across its structure. 

These aren't just random placements; they've been engineered with a purpose – to allow owners like you to easily attach a plethora of third-party accessories without the need for disruptive modifications or complex installations.

With "Accessory Ready" features, Ford is not just selling a vehicle; it's offering a canvas. A canvas that Bronco aficionados can paint with their own adventures, tastes, and needs.

And the beauty of this philosophy? It extends beyond mere utility. It's about the freedom to curate your Bronco experience, to craft a vehicle that isn’t just a mode of transport but an extension of your personality and passion.

Tailoring Your Bronco With Archetype Racing

With Archetype Racing’s innovative solutions, you have endless customization possibilities for your Bronco’s strategically designed mount points.

Dash Mount

The modern adventurer demands more from their vehicle than just raw power and rugged looks; they want a seamless integration of technology, ensuring every device has its place. 

The Ford Bronco offers a taste of this with its standard dash mount - a solo ¼-20 threaded hole designed for a singular accessory. While useful, it poses a challenge for the tech-driven traveler.

Crafted exclusively for the 6th Gen (2021+) Ford Bronco, Archetype Racing’s BAM rail expands your dashboard's potential. Made from a robust 6061 aluminum alloy billet, it's the epitome of durability meets design.

While the default dash mount is ideal for a single device, the BAM rail stretches a generous 30 inches, creating space for up to 15 devices. Whether it's GoPros, cell phones, or dash cams, the BAM ensures every device has its rightful spot.

Grab Handle

The Ford Bronco has some design features that often go unnoticed in their potential. One such piece is the lower right handle, a design element that, while adding to the Bronco's tough look, is left largely unused by even the most ardent off-road enthusiasts. Here’s where Archetype Racing's D + M.O.S.H. assembly takes your off-roading to a new level.

While the handle's primary role might be for occasional grips during rocky terrains, Archetype saw the potential for much more. That this could be the perfect spot for accessories that you want within reach, but not obstructing your view. Especially when you've already optimized your dash with the BAM or TAP rails.

  • Flashlight Holder: Have a Picatinny rail-mounted flashlight? The D provides a sturdy spot ensuring it's always within reach.
  • Phone Mount: If you're the kind who prefers their phone screen away from the direct line of sight, yet accessible, this is your go-to spot as a phone holder.
  • Additional Picatinny Option: As a bonus, Archetype offers an option to fit the Picatinny rail from the TAP as a side-mounted rail. This added versatility means you can customize how and where you want your accessories.

Center Roll Bar Mount

Central to the Bronco's interior structure is the center roll bar. While this sturdy bar primarily ensures safety and rigidity, Ford has also incorporated mount points. These mount points cater to those looking to personalize and expand the utility of their Bronco in the rear. For the center roll bar mount, the B.A.L.L.S. system offers unparalleled flexibility.

Machined to perfection from 6061-T6 billet aluminum, the B.A.L.L.S. system offers a smooth, rounded, modular ball-and-socket base mount. 

Unlike standard plastic mounts with embedded threaded studs, these B.A.L.L.S. are crafted to withstand the toughest conditions, thanks to the use of 316 stainless steel hardware that bolts through the meticulously designed 6061 machined billet ball mount.

Whether you're looking to attach a dome light or a sound bar, our B.A.L.L.S. provides the perfect 1” ball surface for your off-road adventures. 

More Ideas for Accessory Ready Mounts

Rack Mounting on Rear Windows

These mounts are strategically positioned for the attachment of robust storage solutions, particularly roof racks. Whether it's for a weekend getaway or an off-road adventure, this feature ensures that Bronco owners have the flexibility to carry what they need without compromising on space or style.

Consider additions like wind deflectors, which can reduce wind noise and improve fuel efficiency. The rear window mounting locations can also accommodate awning attachments, providing Bronco adventurers with shade and shelter during their outdoor escapades.

Light Mount by Rear View Mirrors

The Ford Bronco brilliantly integrates functionality into its design, and the light mount locations by the rear view mirrors are a shining example. Primarily intended for auxiliary lights, these mounts enhance visibility during low-light conditions or off-road escapades.

These mount locations are compatible with a range of lighting solutions. From spotlight beams for focused illumination to floodlights for wider coverage, there's a light to match every driving condition.

Beyond lighting, these mounts can serve other practical purposes for off-roading. They're ideal for attaching side-mirror extenders for those pulling trailers, or even mounting action cameras to capture those thrilling drives from a unique perspective.

Front Corners Above Windshield

Positioned strategically at the front corners above the windshield, Ford Bronco's mount points offer drivers an exciting opportunity for enhancements. These points are designed for adaptability, catering to diverse accessory needs.

One of the most popular additions for these mount points, off-road lights can drastically improve visibility during nighttime expeditions or when navigating through foggy terrains. There's a wide range of lighting systems available, from LED bars to spotlights, all designed to ensure you never lose your way.

For those who regularly drive in regions with strong sunlight or rain, adding a visor or shield can help in deflecting direct sunlight or rain, enhancing driving comfort.
