Everything that's "good news" is fiction. Everything that has been bad news concerning the Bronco is normally "fact".
That's the thing...the 2 inch lift and 37's has always been fiction..for fuck sakes it has no motor.
I presume Ford had the intention to bring the 2 inch lift to market and either ran into testing issues and or couldn't get green lit by the lawyers and decided they had bigger fish to try at the moment and back burnered the whole thing.

I could very well be wrong and eat humble pie when the B&P comes out, but those are my thoughts on it.

For my sake and yours, I hope we are both wrong lol, but I doubt we will be. I can put a 2 inch level on it myself easy enough.

I thought a 2" lift kit was being offered through the 200 accessories? That dud 2 door cyber orange bronco (the one Doug Demuro reviewed) was showing off the 2" lift and optional 37's. Am I mistaken and is it no longer availabe?
Anyone thinking that is only 2"s of lift is under the wrong impression. Both the Badlands & Sasquatch package are already lifted over say a base.

How much lift do you think is under the CO on 37's?
Hope it's under 3 inches not factoring in .6 for the sas lift because it sounded like the CO on 37's had different suspension anyhow.

In other words...how much lift is there on the CO/37s (IYO) in relation to a base model do you figure?

Just going off vehicles I've lifted in the past & looking at pictures of say F-150 & the like, I would say at least 4" (over stock no Sasquatch). That truck gains 1" from the tires everything else is in the suspension or body mount & that truck towers over the Sasquatch CG Vehicle.

Thanks for the input.
I was hoping to be under 3 inches of suspension lift to fit 37's.
Time will tell.

Yes it will see high end of moderate trails off road. I need the 37's for clearance, but I don't drive fast off road and will not be a DD.

I mostly want the sas package for gearing for 37's, but it may be cheaper to go non-sas and just have it re geared seeing as how I'd likely be replacing shocks anyway.

I'd wait for the Warthog but it looks very wide..and I'd wipe out the fenders in no time in tress.

Body lift still sucks because you may need a steering extension and adapter kits for crap like the t-case and shifter... not mentioning worrying if any wires may get stretched depending on how much you lift.

I will not be towing, but will be loaded up with 200-300 pounds of gear when loaded out.
Want to go 37's and my on road drive to trails and remote areas off grid are an honest 600 miles round trip drive.
Are far off would the 4.7 be from optimal? Or what would you suggest?
