Are they All Season or All Terrain? I found All Season which looks like All Terrain in Walmart for $74.00

I just put a set of Nitto Ridge Grapplers (285/70/r17) on the wife's Jeep last winter. So far she likes them. Depending whether or not on sale, run in the $180-$220 range for that size (the wider 33's) and they look good. So far handle good as well, they are more of a hybrid between AT & MT. I'd probably run them or some BFG's MT's or AT's. A lot of people also mention the Faulken Wildpeaks.

4door 7 speed Big Bend for me.

I want the mid package, as this will be a daily driver. Base doesn't have it. Also I believe Area 51 doesn't come in Base.

I don't need any fancy off-road stuff but I'd like enough to go overlanding, or just trails. I'd love a Badlands, but I know I'd be a poser, because I wouldn't use the steel bumpers, or added tech/mechanical things... plus its an extra 10-15k more.

At most I'd change out the wheels or just powdercoat the stock things to black.

Okay....here is my Big Bend versus BaseSquatch build. If I look at it this way, the BB doesn't cost me more to get to my preferred color (Cactus Gray). Also on the BB, I don't feel obliged to get the 2.7 like I do on the BaseSquatch. The prices on the locker and aux switches are just hopeful guesses.

Ugh...where is B&P???????

Not sure how many of you saw or heard....apparently the Base 4DR does not come standard with the automatic. Thread is here:

https://www.bronco6g.com/forum/threads/what-the-fluff-did-ford-change-the-specs-on-base.5446/

It gets really interesting if the 2DR to 4DR price increase matches the rest of trims ($2495 bump). With current known prices you could end up with a BaseSquatch 4DR auto 2.7 aux switches for around $41K. That appears to be about $1k lower than with the auto included price!

Ford Canada is still showing Base 4DR as auto standard.

If price drops and a la cart lockers are available I might have a build around $38K for a Base 4DR 2.7 Auto Aux Switches and lockers/LSD.

100% agree. The 4-DR BASE with auto standard is a huge value. Even if you get top of the line aftermarket tires you'll have savings. Add individual features from Mid-Package and higher trims and it is THE trim to get.
automatic is not standard. Ford updated the page. It was a mistake. It will cost more to get the auto w/ base now.

Yes. I was mistakenly going off of the Ford website that was changed today. I'm probably 90% Big Bend now. Not much of a value to do a 4DR BASE anymore.

Hopefully they don't screw up on the accessories prices when the b&p comes out cause that change with the base really pissed a lot of people off. I was always looking at the 2 door, but that sucks for those that wanted the 4 door and now have to drop more money.

If they are truly adding 200 accessories and options to B&P. I'm cool with them taking their time. I'd hate to configure a vehicle and be off the actual price $1600+ when it's time to order.

Dont bet on it about the screwup. It's Ford we are talking about, they can do anything and get away with it.
