typos, incorrectly spelled model names, and in house names that don’t match the actual package names…ROCKSTARS!? The lack of attention to detail in documentation would result in “a new line of work” in my industry.
Ford does little to dispel the theory they are a bunch of stumbling, bumbling temp workers. Pro Tip: sloppy work is neither covid nor chip shortage related

I'm trying to understand what this is all about. When they say 8mm of 'lean', is that with Bronco totally empty? Is it possible the driver's side purposely sits higher empty so it will level out with a driver sitting in it?
Given the tank is on the passenger side, probably a little.

Several of us believe this may simply be allowable tolerance. Looking at the document it shows how to measure so it may be used to check vehicles after and accident to see it they are within spec.

My old truck has the engine offset to the passenger side, which makes it sit higher on the drivers side. As best I know most all older vehicles were this way. My interpretation of it has always been that it was done this way because for the majority of the vehicles life, it would only have the driver in it and would level it out so the suspension would work and wear evenly. I’m probably wrong, and it’s likely just folklore ... lol. However, being around some circle track folks and a bunch of drag racing folks, I know the ratio of preload on each corner drastically affects how they drive.

So this confirms a 0.4” difference between base Badlands and SAS Badlands?
LOL, it would appear that this is where engineers and politicians collide ....there are 36 pages of info but the simple question of "how much lift" each model has compared to the others remains unanswered.
...or this stuff is so complex, the answer is right there but I cannot understand it.
The math guys will probably be along here shortly...

Am I the only one that saw the possibility of different colors? Absolute Black, Signature Navy, and Silver Radiance.

Paint Code
Paint codes may be listed as a 2-part code. The first set of paint code numbers/letters indicate the vehicle primary body color. The second set of letters/numbers (if applicable) indicate a 2-tone or accent body color. All paint codes are a base coat/clear coat finish.
• D4 - Rapid Red Metallic (tinted clearcoat)
• E7 - Velocity Blue Metallic
• G1 - Shadow Black/Absolute Black
• HX - Antimatter Blue/Signature Navy
• JS - Iconic Silver/Silver Radiance
• KU-Area51
• M7 - Carbonized Gray Metallic
• N6 - Lightning Blue (First Edition only)
• NE - Cactus Gray
• PQ - Race Red
• SB - Cyber Orange Metallic (tri-coat)
• YZ - Oxford White
