What Do You Think of this Plate?

Other than the extremely bright paint job, what do you think of the "NOTAJEP" (Not a Jeep) Plate ? Doubt it'll be necessary because of the big ford logo but think it's necessary?

To the average person out there it's a Jeep, not that many people knew about the Bronco especially these days. Maybe 10, 15, 20 years ago you could find people that were aware but going with that, you can see how this plate is fitting.

Lol, these days if a vehicle is square like a Wrangler and looks off-road capable, most would assume it's a Jeep. That custom green Bronco needs a giant Bronco badge on the rear if being mistaken for a Jeep is really that big of a concern.

As least the new Bronco shouldn't be mistaken for one.

I find a lot of people also call any SUV a Jeep automatically. Like when people call all bandages a Band-Aid. Or tissues as Kleenex.

Some brands are just that iconic and well known that the name itself becomes associated with certain items and models. Maybe someone will get a custom license plate for their Bronco and have it spell out "A Bronco". That should fit the license plate letter limit perfectly.

It's because they've been around so long and left that ever lasting impression. I'm sure "Bronco" would suffice as well, but I don't really mind.. Paying extra money just to let people know it's not a "Jeep" is a bit excessive

It's also good branding, that's how people have come to call things by that and not what it actually is. Like photocopies, they used to be called xerox "go xerox it", but decades later people get it, who calls it a xerox these days? Same thing happening here. People now know what a crossover is, what a CUV is, etc. Even if they don't know it as a "crossover" the idea is it isn't a Jeep like they used to call it back in the day.

I didn't even know that they were called Xerox before... that's intense. But in all fairness, a lot of people don't exactly know what a Crossover is right now. They can't really explain it unless they know that the vehicle has been classified as a crossover lol.

There's always the more economical approach of just getting a bronco decal or badge if it's really that important.
Around my area it's not too expensive to get a custom plate, the problem will be trying to come up with something to put on it.

Your initial idea of "A BRONCO" would be great if it isn't taken! But I think people would be coming up with different variations of Bronco as well though. "BR0NC0" etc.
