So with 32" tires, we'll have 9.4" of ground clearance, and with 33's only 9.9"!
Even with 35's it only goes up to 10.8 inches on the 4 door, because the high clearance suspension on the Sasquatch adds an inch of lift

I wonder about those numbers. Base to squatch is a gain of 3.2 inches. That's basically going from a 30 inch tire to a 36.4 inch tire. The tire listed for the base per manufacturer specs is 30.5 inches. The squatch tire is around 34.5 inches. That would only give 2 inches more clearance. What am I missing? What does the quatch package change other than tire size to gain that extra clearance?

I've wondered if it is the squatch suspension that actually ENABLES 35" tires. So for example, could you replace 32s with 35s on a non-squatch?
My guess would be that the stock suspension can fit up to 32s. The badlands suspension looks to be the same suspension as the Sasquatch and it is needed to fit 33-35’s.

I'm sure every automaker measures differently...and with full IFS/IRS you can mess with angles like you can't on solid axles

In comparison, my Rubicon comes with a extra 1 inch of lift from the factory compared to the other models. Standard tire 33 but can jump up to 35s without any suspension modification. I imagine Ford Badlands and above models have the extra 1 inch lift over lower models.

I’m not sure that is the case. The Sasquatch package adds a 1.2” front and 1” rear lift. The badlands pacakage has a “unique” suspension. My guess is up to a 33” will fit fine with full articulation on any model, but a lift or Sasquatch will be required to go any bigger. If it is a mall crawler 35’s will probably fit fine.

The BASE Bronco should at the very least have more ground clearance than all these baby dick peasants!

This just pretty much makes the Sasquatch package a must have if you want to look like you have the big dick they advertise on TV
is this actually Rusty Shackleford?

This seems a little hysterical to me. F150 4x4 has a little more clearance than the base too. We should do a whole thread about that.

Also, you realize that people don't actually buy 4x4s as a substitute for manhood, right? Not everyone on this forum is a man, anyway.

The clearance means something to me based on my living situation which is back in the woods over hill and dale, sugar sand and very often very deep water during rainy season. We regularly see bumpers left on the road out here by unsuspecting visitors. :LOL: #sasquatch
