Doesn't the BL make more sense in this scenario? It has everything from the sasquatch as well as the front sway bar disconnect and you'll be able to get the high or lux packages if any of that is desirable to you.
In a sense, yes. However, I have no interest in high or lux packages, and the there's no way I'm paying $50k+ for a vehicle with all black interior and bright orange accents. :LOL:

I am confused about the upper dash color on the BD. The video states it is Dark Space Gray however pictures look more like the cactus gray which is on the Bandlands. Any additional information on this?
I believe it is the same upper dash as Badlands. You can see in these screen captures from the materials video that it is a shade of lighter gray. Note in one of the pictures it looks extremely light because it is in direct sunlight.

Little better image of a stock BD tire

The more I read about this tire, the more stoked I am. What a tire. But when I switch to the aluminum, nice-looking rims, which are the SAME SIZE, it switches to a M/T tire? Any idea why or what tire that is? I don't want to pick between the great tire and the crappy rims.

Yeah, let's hope they don't switch out the tire supplier between now and then.

I think B&P thinks by going to that particular rim you want Sasquatch.

This photo seems to do the stock 265 tires more justice than the standard B&P CGI. I’ll be rolling aluminums right now but as mine is priced right now, it’s about 3500 for Sasquatch...... worth? This will be my first real DD + off-roader

You know, I guess I just jumped at the chance to dump those ugly stock rims....is there some reason I'd prefer them?

Steel rims will bend but seldom break. That means they may be repairable on the trail, and might I add that they are lovably ugly. To me the whole Black Diamond theme is understated capability. This trim is not flashy; it is the embodiment of practicality. Just my $.02, hope it helps.

I was always a "pretty rims" guy but reading posts out here I decided to stick with the stock steelies on BD. Kind of a retro, rugged look.

You guys had me excited for a minute on the optional wheels getting the multi terrains. Look closely.
