Hello, my name is Kyle and I live in Virginia. I was a 7/19/2021 build date and received my Bronco on 7/30. I plan on doing some casual off-roading on the eastern shore and out in West Virginia. I will use this thread to post what I have already done to the bronco and update it as I modify it. Once I get her dirty, I will get some good off-road pics. Enjoy :)

seems like people are digging deep for their preferred wheelset and tires.

cost is over 3k for four of them not including the spare, tax, or installation

the other guy from larchmont is also into his for $3500 for his BD


if i get the BD i will be looking to keep grabbers until they wear out and find an awesome wheelset for under 1k.

i'm in the "i mostly hate all black wheels" camp

It’s definitely not cheap and retrospect it makes sense to do the Sasquatch package but I had to have a manual so I am happy with my decision. Future bronco owners that will have the option to do the Mansquatch are lucky.

I mean if you plan to put custom wheels and not look like every other SAS it makes sense to build it your way. Looks good. I plan to follow your route with my OBX. I hate factory wheels.

Agreed, I want to stand out a bit from the sea of sasquatches.

Looks great! I really hope Ford doesn't kill off VB at least until they finish all the reservations.

The pics look like you are in the HR area. I'd love to get a chance to see your rig in person. It will be the first 2DR AND VB I've gotten to see in person. VB is my wife's preferred color, where I'm leaning more toward the Rapid Red..... but both are awesome.

Damn that looks good! Something I might do down the road, lift and bigger tires on my 2 door BD. Probably won’t right away, just enjoy it and see what it can do bone stock. Lucky you got yours already (y)
