These wheels are 17x8.5 + 30 vs. 17x7.5 + 55. There is a small amount of additional poke vs. Big Bend but not much. Just looks slightly more aggressive in my opinion and no additional modifications are required.
What is the exact size of the tire?
What brand are the wheels?

I hope to imitate your look when I order my Badlands!

Looks great! Those wheels along with the optional Badlands wheels are definitely the best looking.

The tires are 285/70 r17 BFG KO2’s.

The wheels came off another new First Edition Bronco. They are the factory SAS wheels but with black rings

looking good, congrats! I like the red, but not enough own it.

I like the stripes too, but I think it looks odd that it goes across the hood (just my opinion, I understand it's been around a lot longer than me).

Stopping at the fenders would be fine, similar to those vintage corvette GS stripes (gasp, how dare he mention chevy?!)

Are you plan on getting a 1" level kit. If you are, do you know if a dealer can install them?

For now I’m not planning to level. I’ve measured and mine sits at just under 3/4” lower in front, so I’m not convinced I need it as in most settings it’s not too obvious to me. That being said, I may end up changing my mind in the future.

As for dealer installs, I’d guess that it really just depends on the dealer. If not, there are plenty of tire shops that would do that for you. I’d just ask around…

Happy to say that I’m officially a member of the Race Red and Two Door clubs. Picked up my non-SAS Big Bend from Two Rivers Ford in Nashville on Saturday. Shout out to Matthew, Jay, and Carl at the dealership, who made the purchase super easy and definitely worth the two hour drive.

They also connected me with fellow forum member @Greenbrick,
who graciously sold me his takeoff FE tires and wheels. Thank you, sir, for the great deal and vintage stripe inspiration!

I ended up deciding that 33’s were a better fit for my taste on the smaller two door wheelbase, here’s the final result. I’m very pleased with the outcome!

No lift or other modifications were required.

Agreed. For this specific build, I think a carb gray beauty ring would pull this package together with the grill and top.

I get exactly what you mean… Initially I considered alternative designs across the hood but ended up feeling they were more disjointed, so I stuck with the tried and true. Since then I’ve really grown to love it!
