the site says there are no soft top options for 2dr versions. is that something that will be available later or strictly aftermarket?

What will it take to #SaveTheMansquatch?

Also, if the 7 speed manual can't take the torque of the 2.7 V6, why didn't they get a stronger 7 speed manual?

do you recommend the 2.3L or the 2.7L?
I personally reserved a 2.7 liter. I have driven many 2.3 liters in the Ranger and it is more than capable. Plenty of power and outstanding torque. I also however love the 2.7. I have driven many F150's with this engine. If you ask me, It is seriously underrated. It really boils down to personal choice. I'm getting older, not sure I want to shift any more, lol My opinion, you can't go wrong with either. I know that's not really an answer. If I were going to do some serious off-roading or over landing, I would probably go with a manual for the crawl gear ratio.

Are there any significant components of this vehicle sourced from outside the USA?

Awesome! I've got several questions!

Is the rubber flooring/drain plugs something that can be installed at a later date? (Say on the base model)

What is the maximum tire size for reliable use on the m190 front differential?

Will 33s require a lift to fit?

Are the rear quarter windows in the hardtop removable from all hardtops, or only the painted ones?

And lastly, the question I'm guessing you're not allowed to answer yet (hopefully I'm wrong on that) is the sasquatch package with the 2.7 going to make the base model $40k?

As a Ford employee, did you play any role in its development, marketing, or ??

Not sure that they didn't offer the manual in the 2.7 due to its tolerance. The 2.3 is still putting out 310lb ft. I haven't heard that was a reason anyway. Sometimes Ford is silly. Maybe they are testing the waters, maybe its a supply issue. Unfortunately the good old manual tranny is a dying breed. I will research and see if I can find the answer. They are probably worried that too many people can't drive a stick, lol

Can you remove (easily) the back seats on the 2 door or do they just fold down?

Any option to get the rubber flooring in the Outer Banks?
From the latest pictures it looks like they fold down easily pretty flush. I’m not sure about removal though.
