The height of the axle probably isn't right in my quickie Photoshop, and the perspective is downward making them look marginally smaller too.

I get all that but even discounting that, doesn't seem proportional to this.

That last picture is really 40's, proportionally?? The new bronco must be bigger than a 1 ton then.
IE, 40's on a Raptor
Yeah, they don't look proportional at all... heh. But I think some of that is because he didn't lift it enough to make it look right - he only moved the wheels down just a tad; and with the snow you don't really get a frame of reference compared to the other pics.

He also enlarged the rim, so if that was a 31 on a 18" rim, then when you crank that up another ~1/3, it makes the rim look like a 24" rim... that adds to the proportion not looking right. That JK is on 17" rims.

A little birdy once told me ...

Let me just tell you 2 things I know for a fact that I don't want to share on the forum right now.
...
2: ... They have been beating the hell out of the Bronco with 35's AND 37's
Funny you say this. I had this same info come up in conversation last night as well.

With a 6" shorter wheelbase on the 4-door, it could be at some advantage. We'll probably need to see a better side profile to see where things line up in between though.

cant get past the 4 doors to decide what my soccer mom wife would want , stock I guess,
2 door and lots of power as big as I can get without a lift. And has to have the power to clean mud out of them. of course the new 10 speed proabibly wont let you spin a tire anyway. lol

I think in light of the prototype running around with 34s we may want an option for those here too

33's are fine for me but having the room for 35's and keeping it reasonable to drive is more important. 35's will just barely fit my stock JK and I haven't upgraded. I'm more about reducing unsprung weight and rotational mass. I like being able to stop just as well as I go.

nice thing about having someone engineer the suspension to handle big tires and having to conform to quality control. That way when I put 37's on it won't ride as bad as a Wrangler with 37's on it. HAHA.
