I don't remember saying it wasn't your right to do so. I never said anything about legalities either, I think it is perfectly legal here in TX. I was just wondering when just being considerate to others quit being a thing. That's all.

The flares do look quick and easy to remove on the Bronco. That does look like a bonus.
Sorry it wasn't clear; I agree with you.

so you think going with the standard 4.46 gears would be better for the 37's than the 4.7?
4.46:1 will still prob do ok, but I’d much rather have 4.7. I’m a manual only type. Forgot the auto only came with 4.46...

Roads here are paved also. They use a mix that includes gravel so rocks do show up on the road. I am also rural and we have a lot of dirt roads. I have a windshield full of rock chips. A few rocks are from some of our locals that have tires that stick outside of all fenders and flares and the rest are normal. It is the ones that are preventable that upset me. This isn't mentioning all the paint chips from debris. It is legal and their/your right to do this. I just know how much I work to pay for my vehicle and I try to be considerate of others. Guess I'm just old or missed out on the it's all about me generation.
In that scenario, I would keep them at the fender line too. In my area, I would consider others if there was anything to consider. We just don’t have widespread rock issues. Hope your Bronco windshield stays chip free for at least a little while.

I know what you mean. Of course, that would make Ford have to put wider flares on it (like Sasquatch), which would suck. This way, you can upgrade the tire and poke outside the flares.
Saw a set of these 33's the other day. Looked much better in person and would look great on a 2D

So that I’m clear too. The 4.70 rear end comes as a part of the Sasquatch package which also includes the 2.7 and 10sp automatic. It would surprise me if you couldn’t get the 4.70 diff as an add on to any package but who knows .
I personally would t get a Bronco at all without the 4.70 if I was going to put anything larger than 33” on it.

Yeah that’s what I’m thinking. Hopefully they let us in the build and price tool select different rims. I’m not a big fan of the headlock wheels they are going to put on the squatch package. I want to get some methods

Can also get 4.7 with badlands manual, which is my most likely choice. There will be plenty of outer banks driving around with 3.73’s and 35’s, which will be much worse than 37’s and 4.7 (and prob 4.46, but I don’t want to do math).

I want smoothies, steelies on the squatch. Still figuring that one out. Dont want the weight of the actual steelies (done tons of personal experimentation with rotational weight) so looking for an alloy alternative. Yes, I know about the fifteen52’s.

Great representation! Thanks for this. It's been a while since I drove on large tires. Comfort wise and highway driving wise. How much difference is there honestly between the 33's and 35's? Love the look of 35's but am wondering about daily driving.

Ford shouldn't even bother with any of the 255 tire variations. Lame and the look is terrible. The 265/70/17 tire should be the base apparatus. Then offer the 33's (on more models besides the Badlands), and end with Sasquatch.

i wish for BFG AT on Sasquatch and I’ll add 37’s as my off-road shoes. The AT’s should be fine for everyday stuff.

Appreciate that. Good info. But what I'm wondering is what size tires we were seeing on all the models in the pics and vidoes released yesterday. Pretty sure the yellow/orange 2 door has the 35's with the sasquatch package. Not confirmed though. Wondering how the Black Diamond looks on the stock 32's and the Badlands looks on stock 33's.
That one has a 2" lift w/ 37s.
