Width is my concern too, here in the Pacific Northwest the trails are tight. It looks like the tires stick out enough that by removing fenders and with some better rock sliders we can ignore the body width and just look at the width across the outside of the tires.

The Sasquatch models have a track with 4" wider (66.9") than the JL Rubicon (62.9"), and the tires are 1.2" wider (12.4" vs 11.2") as well. Since track width is the center of the tire that should be a total of 5.2" wider than a JL Rubicon if I am doing the math right. That is HUGE on tight trails. This pic below is from the Naches trail, 2nd gen Tacoma, I don't think there is an extra ~5" there.

Most of the Jeeps are on 35's or larger on these trails and push the tires out considerably, does anyone know how wide they end up at the outside of the tires typically?

Are these height values for 2 and 4 door Bronco's (78.9/78.7) with the Sasquatch package or without?
- Critical for whether I can get it into my garage.

These were the earliest available numbers before anyone had seen one in person. I'd check more recent threads for better info on height.

The body length is including the rear tire on the back, correct?

Our Highlander is 192”.... and the interior capacities are much greater.

Thanks.
Yea, measures to the back of the tire. Bronco is not in same class as Highlander. The Toyota competitor with the Bronco is the 4Runner. The Highlander matches with the Explorer.

Odd query, but has anyone seen info on the size of the window opening, particularly the height? Might be an optical illusion, but the height of the door makes things look a little claustrophobic to me.

As a point of comparison, my Jeep's half doors (which I love) vs its full doors (which I do not love). Again, maybe an optical illusion, but the Bronco windows look even shorter to me than Wrangler windows.

Has anybody sat in the Bronco compared to the Wrangler. I'd really just like to know how the room feels compared to how it feels in a Wrangler? Sometimes I feel a little compacted on long trips in my jeep.

Here's what I see in an online measurement tool:
