Not really, my SUV has a 14 bolt rear and a 9.25 front ring gear size, 37s and 38s are well within the scope of reliable off-roading.

Lifting a truck but not putting the requisite size tires on it isn’t just a cosmetic issue its making the COG higher without giving it the advantages provided by properly sized tires.

Minimum lift necessary to maintain COG while the largest size tire that can fit within those parameters puts you at a huge advantage.

Now for the Bronco 37s May be the max reasonable size, but I certainly wouldn’t want to be running 6” of lift with the diffs still as low to the ground as a stock truck, that seems pointless.
Where in OBX are you?

I’m just east of Wake County, not actually at the OBX per se, but Corova is dear to me.

Stationed at Norfolk I assume? I applied for a job at the shipyard several years back and was surprised to hear the interviewer tell me he drove back and forth from N.C. everyday. Especially that portion of N.C. being as desolate as it is.

But yes, I love PCB water but for everything else the northern Outerbanks is heaven for me.

Yup! I moved down here to get away from everything there. I use my drive to decompress before getting home....where it’s time to relax!

The JL Rubi can go 35 w/o lift and not rub, barely. 37s w/a 2.5 MC or RK lift really easy.... but the catch in that is the gears 99% of the time. The 4.10s won’t use 8th in the auto, 6th in the manual. At a minimum, 4.55s will get those gears back, while 4.88 gets you better RPMs at most speeds.
A lot of the folks a doing builds went 5.13 “for the rocks”. Don’t remember how that all turned out.

did a lot of reading/research on deployment lol
[Indian Jones voice] "Gears... Why does it always have to be gears?" :LOL:

Yeah, going 37s is expensive – lift, tires, gears, upgraded axles o_O Will be interesting to see what's required on the Bronco. Hard to imagine the stock IFS will hold up to 37s locked up on the rocks, but maybe we'll be surprised.

Tire Size is directly related to what you want to do with your rig.

For me and for where I'll do most of my off-roading (family farm in south central N.C.) 33" will be my choice, as there will be tree branches and other overhangs that I will need to navigate under. This was proven to me over July 4th as I rode with my son in his 2019 4D Rubicon (I don't know or care to know which model J) around the family 3.5 acre pond, as we were pushing under & through low hanging limbs in one area.

Do we have a total height on the Sasquatch package setup?

Ive read every post in this thread and something still escapes me.

Is this a "non Sasquatch" truck with a 2" lift as a factory option with 37s.

Will this 2" lift be available with Sasquatch or am I dumb and its completely incompatible and different and unnecessary.

If the prior is the case I may not even need squatch. Just the 2" and 37s and save some cash.

At best it would be a Ford Performance lift kit that was dealer installed. But people just think it could be available because that's the setup that was on the yellow launch Bronco with the holes in the doors and some pre-launch rumors. Ford hasn't said squat.

The 2" lift and 37" tires are vaporware, a show concept only at this point, using a Raptor read end, please see this thread where the conversation continued, stating at this post:

For those of you unaware, this is just a one-off custom build with a Raptor rear end.

This is not just a simple dealer installed accessory.

Future concept, maybe, aftermarket, probably, 37's direct from Ford, don't hold your breath for the first year.

I've been rolling my eyes every time someone mentions getting the "factory" 2" lift for 37s. Like you said, at best it will be a dealer installed option.
