Like, "I need a step to get in" elevated? I need to be very careful about my build. I want it as tall as possible without being so tall that my wife doesn't want to ever use the rig.
You probably won't need a step, but one will help. When I saw the 2-door Badlands with stock suspension, it was about the same height as the 2018 F-150 Lariat I was driving. I believe the factory tires on it are 31's. You can easily step in and out without a step, but one can be nice at times. With Sasquatch you might need to hop a bit, but shouldn't be too bad if those grab handles are placed well. I am 5'6" for reference and have no steps on my Jeep with 35's and a 2.5" lift.

Yeah, I knew that was coming. I almost added a note. :D

It's either she drives it or I have to go "foraging" with her. Now what do you think of my decision?

Like “I welcome the challenge” elevated ? honestly, it wasn’t bad at all. I loved the height. That’s what the grab bars are for anyway right? LOL

WOW those are 33"'s? The non SASQ argument is well made with this example.
Thank you Lady Bronco for the great pixs. And, to think the SASQ version is 1" taller with 35's.
What a world!!!! Is the extra $1500 for the tires and wider flares really worth it???
decisions? decisions??

I love this build and am planning a 2dr BL on 33s. So many people constantly questioning whether certain builds are 33s or 35s convinced me 33s are big enough (for now).
A 305/70 will be a perfect match for those fender flares when the stock tires wear out.

I think the slightly narrower (non-Squatch) flares have more flair.
