Hi I purchased a Bronco Sport Big Bend. Super happy with it so far. Question. I noticed that the rear seat backs are not rubberized only the floor and the flat part of the cargo...is that in all. the models? Can I purchase them aftermarket?

Thank you!
I picked up my BB on 5/10 and the dealer had installed the rubber seat backs for me. So happy with them and the rubber cargo mat. My dogs are like oinker dogs, so it saves me a lot of headache. :p

Hello everyone, I just got an Area 51 big bend on wed. And I’m loving it . Can someone post a picture of the rubber seat backs after install? Having a little trouble with them and I’m not sure they sent me all of them . Thank you!

Does anyone know if you can order these after market? I thought you could because my 2022 Big Bend didn't come with them but has the buttons to snap in. The guy at my dealership is saying that he can't locate them to order. Does anyone have any info on this??

I didn't realize these were snapped on until recently when a slight rattle developed in the luggage compartment. The only snaps holding them in place were along the top. It was a pain to get them all snapped back into place...in fact I had to use a soft-blow hammer to tap the last one in place on the driver's side. It was cold out so I imagine it would be easier when warmer. Sounds like this is something the installers need to pay closer attention to.

It's common -- very hard to get ALL of the snaps snapped! I'm suspicious they might be coming unsnapped on their own from time-to-time as well, they're stiff but also under a lot of tension.

If you don't have them already, you also won't have the snaps mounted in the exact spots needed across your rear setbacks to accept these. Will require good technique to install all of those accurately first, presuming they are included.

I had the same thought - maybe the below zero weather caused them to pull apart. I know for a fact they are snapped now so time will tell.

Also, We haven't slid anything large into the cargo area with the seats folded, but I can see where if not careful, a lip could get snagged and cause it to come unsnapped.

It was tough to snap everyone on but I manage to do it. I figured maybe because it was the cold winter weather that caused the plastic to shrink but now I'm thinking it is just the weird snap design that does not allow for error. All the buttons were in proximity to where it needed to be but was just very hard to push them down.

It took longer than I anticipated but they do fit. Take your time with the difficult ones and be patient.

I haul a Terra Trike Rambler All Terrain in the back of my base model.
It just fits with the back tire and wheel sticking just over my center console, I can only open the lid part way.
I come off the two track trails sometimes with one wet muddy trike.
Don’t want my base seat back dirty so I have a very sturdy rather thick plastic tarp all folded to cover up everything.
It cost me 12 bucks at Wally World, covers everything nicely.
Tarp then trike then I fold the back longer flap that protects the bumper in and close the back hatch. All my sometimes muddy shoes and wet clothes get piled in under the trike.
I get home trike and tarp come out and I hose of the tarp, hang it to dry.
Then in goes my padded moving blanket. It stays in the Bronco, seat backs up.
No mess in my BS at all.
The coolest part. That folded into a quarter size padded moving blanket further quiets down the road noise. My B S base sounds like a Cadillac going down the highway.
