Thanks for proving my point ;)
Sigh..not at all. You go on trying to convince others that the 4.7 discussion is "long in the tooth".
I know better than to skimp on gearing when going with big tires and heavy loads.

I really thought it would be at least a year before there would be good support in the aftermarket. But it looks like there will really be options from day one. This is great news.

This is one of the Wranglers strong points. The aftermarket has everything you can imagine and more.
I think the aftermarket will be massive after a year. So you are sort of correct. Ford will have their stuff at launch and these companies who've had access to pre-prod vehicles. But once the rest of the aftermarket gets their hands on the Bronco it's just going to explode.

The excuse that you need Sasquatch with 4.7's to run a 35 is what is getting long in the tooth. A BD or BL with a 4.46 auto or 4.7 manual will be just fine for the vast majority of people wanting the 35" tire look. What ratio is the manual Sasquatch going to come with? Those 5.13's? Those like yourself who will be swapping out gears for even higher ratios are not in the vast majority of owners.

I'm sure the lights are very useful, but am I the only guy that thinks the big row of them at the top of the windshield looks butt ugly?

Yes! The 4WP light bar looks much better.

The 4.7 gears is the Sasquatch/35s gearing. My theory is they gave those gears to the manual Badlands because pairing them with the advanced T-case got them their "best in class" crawl ratio.

People just need to understand that a shorter gear with larger tires will affect performance. If they're fine with that, great. Buy a lower trim and throw 35s/rims on it and they're golden. If they want to maintain stock performance while running 35s, Ford has already given us that answer.

Definitely looking to add a decal like that. not sure how it'll look on Rapid Red. Perhaps another color ?

They need to start selling this shit now. I need to get a pile of goodies going in my garage for launch, including wheels and tires.

If anyone wants the 35" GY's from a Sas, I'll have them for sale.
