This is some seriously good advice, as far as tackling the interior choices goes. If you're concern is that it isn't dark enough you can have the dash treated with dyes, heat soaks, or painted, depending on how much you want to spend.
Sandstone on the dash and doors is going to be...
I can't recall who told the number in inches, but I jotted it down at the time. I think it was a Ford Marketing rep on a Q&A live stream for Bronco Nation.
Here's the Q&A from SEMA queued to the part where he talks about the lift and suspension.
I believe the suspension travel, ergo the wheel travel on a Badlands is 9.45 inches on the front axle and 10.25 for the rear axle.
Base is 7.88 inches front and rear is 8.46 inches.
Sasquatch package travel is 9.05 inches for the front axle and 9.88 inches for the rear axel.
I think, repeat...
I love the color. It looks great in person. My old ranger was Panther Black Metallic with orange pinstripes. Loved it. It was a bitch to keep clean though. Even on days I wasn't using it to wheel around the property.
I would go with Shadow Black, dirt be damned, since I live in the city...
If it were me, I'd accent it with Carbon Grey/Black and Orange decals. You can get all kinds of vinyl decals custom made for your rig. It wouldn't be too expensive to have them made and applied professionally.
Fast and dirty mock-up, but you get the idea.
Start deleting non essential equipment. Rear seats, hard tops, doors, spare tire and tire mount. Should lighten it up a bit. Maybe?
Wife only weighs 105, but I'm 230. She might have to watch from the spectator stands, for weight reasons, I mean. 😏
Oh, yeah, the 2020 F-150 is no doubt bigger. Keep your eyes peeled for one of those 11th gen F-150 (they're everywhere) on the road. It'll blow your mind how much smaller they are than today's full size model.
Like you, I want to swing big tires on small wheels. I just can't get enough information about the brake system to see where I land.
I'd really like to put 16's on if the brake system could handle it. Since I live so close to the Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas, I might just see about having...
This is always an option:
I believe Ford has nix'd the lighter in all new vehicles. The might be something offered directly from Ford. But I wouldn't know about that.
None of the measurements are for Crew Cab. It's virtually impossible to find 2020 Ranger in Regular Cab. I measured like for like on all of these. LT Regular/Extended cab vs. XL Extended Cab. As you know the frame on an LT Regular Cab and Extended are the same. They just change the bed...
I'm sorry to have to tell you, you're completely wrong. I have a tendency to not speak on things I don't know about. And I know first hand how these two trucks compare in size.
I literally went to the dealership in a 2012 that I was working on and parked it next to the new Ranger, they are...
You know, I've never had a problem with bright colors and cops. Must be the area I live in, there are tons of bright red and super lime green vehicles in my area.
And as far as highway driving... Well, that adaptive cruise control is there for a reason. Heh.
Nice, we've been debating colors a lot in my house. I'm 85-15 on either just getting a an Oxford White Badlands and custom painting it or just going with Cyber Orange and saving myself nearly $6500 for accessories and aftermarket.
I still haven't gotten to see CO in person, once I do, though...
I skipped out on getting a Ranger in order to wait on the Bronco. Am I regretting that decision? No.
For what it's worth, I may try to find myself a 2012 Ranger to tinker with while I wait for the Bronco rollout. These new Rangers are literally the size of a 2012 F150. I know it's due to...
