We need the damn build and price. It’d be interesting if ford kept track of how many different configurations were built, I bet it hits a million really quick once it goes live. I’m going to build multiple options between big bend and badlands. Staying away from base and wildtrak.
I'm looking forward to the inevitable post with a spreadsheet of every possible configuration of every option on every trim with every possible price.

There is more to the squatch than just 35's. To me, if you plan to go to the 35's on your own you have money better spent getting the package from Ford. Better shocks, gears, front locker, higher clearance fenders and all under warranty with trans/engine/speedo calibrated for it.
Would you say BD+ mid + Sasquatch is a good way to go? Price in your opinion ?
I would love the 12 inch much screen and some other goodies... but I’ll stay more functional I suppose.
it’s either that or a badlands with the mid or high...

I've been contemplating moving up from the BB to BD recently. I hadn't realized the BD gives me sone of the stuff I would have optioned in the BB plus a little more. This model seems to be aimed at those who want some off-road capability right off the bat without spending too much.

All I want is the base BD with 4.70 gears, M210 axle. I don’t want to squatch or go to Badlands to get it. Hopefully I can, but won’t be surprised if I can’t. Then I really have to decide if I want to pay for a base Badlands.

Gonna be a few fun months building and rebuilding this Bronco.

That would be nice. Unfortunately as of now you have to get the Sasquatch Package to get that in the front end. Which makes no sense. Which is why im probably sticking to my original plan and going Base + Sasquatch.

Unless Ford changes their mind, the Badlands is the only way to get everything in the Sasquatch package minus 35's with the 7 speed manual. I expect the Black Diamond with Sasquatch to come in at around $2,000 more than the base Badlands because of needing to add automatic. These can get expensive quick, I believe a Black Diamond 2 door will top out at $48,000 with Sasquatch, Mid Package, 2.7, and Auto. For me, I plan to get a 2 door Black Diamond 7 speed manual without any options except the rook rack, tow package, and maybe the upgraded wheels: this should easily get me anywhere I might go and carry all my toys.
+1 My thinking/plan as well

Only thing stopping me from going this route is the mid package is a high as you can go. If the high package was available on the Black diamond, I would go for it.
Exactly, no high or lux package plus you’re stuck with that grey top!

THat's what I'm getting! I'm getting a Cactus Badsquatch 2 door. Comes with everything I wanted, without the electronic disconnect thing which I don't think I need.

Plus rubber floors and marine vinyl seats.

The only 2 things I really want on top are the wireless phone charging, and full keyless entry, so i might need to Lux too...
Can’t get Lux with BD.

I have a reserve for Badlands now - but strongly considering this Black Diamond idea with squash. I hate the Black Diamond name. I have to get that out there. So I will probably debadge it. Otherwise it will be cactus with white top if available. I do not need the sway bar disconnect for the wheeling I do, which is not much really.
At this time can only get grey top with BD.

Sas with manual has be back at the BD. Was pricing out using the xplan pricing sheet and comparing...come on B&P.

BD with Mid and Sas only loosing the hydro SBD (will just pick up a manual disco) is a VERY interesting package compared to the BL all std.

I am mildly interested in the sas wheels not because of beadlock but because they are forged and 8.5 wide. Having the ability to beadlock is kind of cool but meh.

Between the odd packages and Modular top not having removable windows on the 2 door, the Badlands looks less and less appealing since the Squatch can come with a manual now. I just have to decide if waiting longer is worth the savings.

I think it's stupid that Ford limits the options like this. If you want the sway disco, the you have to upgrade trims... But don't make us upgrade because we can't get heated seats or mirrors. Lol

Is the lift on BD Squatch more than if I bought 35-inch tires and put them on the Badlands without Squatch? I am under the impression that the only real difference with the Squatch is wider fender flares, rims, and tires. Am I missing something that Squatch gives me more than what I mentioned?
