The brand new Bronco’s extremely modular body design has drawn comparisons to Lego kits and that notion is just additional cemented by how completely these builds work. The kits exhibit particulars just like the manufacturing unit fender flares, rock rails and hood-mounted “path sights,” swinging tailgates and even detachable roof panels, identical to the actual deal.
