Bigger is better
Bigger also puts out a whole lot more light when it is dark. My 7" screen is too bright for me at night, I can't imagine the light the 12" puts out.
My 2011 F-150s screen has a night mode and it's not bright at nite so I'm sure both Bronco screens will dim at nite automatically or manually like my F-150

Nope. One of these rims is the BD, one is a spare, can you tell the difference? They’re cheap and ugly.

Yes sir, that is the way it is on my F150 too and it will be the same on the Bronco.

I thought we could get the 12” screen with BD? Anyway, I kept going back and forth and settled on a Badlands build. Not much more money and the LED lights and few other things are pulling me that way. I would prefer the black/grey MGV seats in the BD, but all black is OK I guess since I can’t get that black/roast or white interior shown on those concept Broncos. The other factor I’m trying to deal with is the wife wants power seats. But that becomes a $2100 upgrade on the BL and all I get for the price is the all black leather trimmed power seats. Don’t want to do it, but I might have to as it will fall into the happy wife category...

My biggest dilemmas are the painted modular top (or lack thereof) and which exterior color. I think I decided on A51, but it seems everyone else has too so now I’m back to contemplating that.

These are the two I keep alternating between as well. I like the BD interior, but I like the 12" (optional) screen and better 'stance' (due to chunkier tires) of the BL. $ difference doesn't seem to be that big since I would be going with the upgraded BD wheels anyways (the shiny black steelies look even more like spare tire donuts than the Base - not a good look). But still don't know which is my leading choice right now... still want/need to see these in person.

Why are you worried what color others are choosing? Pick what you like. Remember, this site represents about 5% of Bronco buyers. The "normal" customer will mostly go for black, white or silver.

You said “Come on Ford: Why I am Changing from Badlands to Black Diamond”. Actually Ford offered you options and BD is a better fit for you. That sound kind if perfect doesn’t it?

The point I was trying to make I look at the BD as an alternative, but not my first choice. I live in the high desert and having all black seats in the BL is no bueno. The BD has grey and black seats. My Ford dig is for not offering light colored seats like grey...

I am wondering what the value proposition is on the BD? I do like the look and I do like the look, but I can get the same options, less the vinyl seat and rubber floor (floor yes, seats. I got me) sasquathed for 2k more. WT makes sense, with the suspension changes and transfer case. I do think 33” is the sweet spot for me size wise, but the BB Sasquatch optioned close to the BD is a bit cheaper and gives me 35s. I lose a Goat mode and the washout interior I think. It’s really hard to decide!
