I'm going to make a really unpopular statement, but I think the 2dr Sasquatch looks ridiculous. I'm sure it's a great off-road rig but just not for me. The Badlands with 33's is perfect for the 2dr. The 4dr look more proportional with Sasquatch though. Don't @ me.

As an FE holder, I thought it was going to be washout. I thought the spec sheet labeled it as such, but someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

You know what else I keep thinking? Why is carpet in vehicles anymore any? Why are carpeted mats a thing? Why aren't all vehicles given all-weather floormats as standard? Carpet doesn't look that good and I can only imagine it mattering if you're barefoot. And how often is that happening?

I dunno. I think in any car, you'd want it to be as easily cleanable as possible given it's a thing that lives in the elements. And this one, specifically, has a detachable roof and is made for the outdoors. Feel like I'm on crazy pills over here.

My Merc doesn't have carpet. It's all rubberized! I know no really the topic. But being luxury driven. It's got things covered and I'm always out about about getting dirty.

Man, I swear, at one point in time, it said rubberized with mats. SOMEONE COME TO MY RESCUE. I seriously feel like I'm on acid.

As someone who works in construction... I completely agree. I SWEAR I read or heard somewhere that all bronco's get drains but only the rubberized flooring has active drains/plugs... whatever that means.

All I can say is that the vitriolic posters a few months back were absolutely right!!!

I stand corrected and with egg on my face.

Ford absolutely cannot figure out how to make black plastics. Everything is mis-matched. Ford has lost me. Ford has lost their comprehension of how to build a vehicle. People on forums know more about making products than this massive global manufacturing company.

AM I RIGHT!!!!!!!!

Uhhhhh, wait. Everything seems to match as they get these ready for manufacturing a hundred thousand units a year.....

Okay, I rescind my previous statement. All the people bitching and moaning on here months ago were wrong. Who would have guessed? Certainly not the people who said "why don't you wait until Ford starts production to complain".

Anyway, on topic, Lightning Blue is such a beautiful color. Really glad we have a Lightning Blue Ranger in our driveway as I would be super upset at only having access to VB for Bronco.

Need to change their plastics formula and compounds. Need more carbon/pigment to make it look black instead of charcoal. Several others plasti manufacturers out there.

That's what I remember hearing, that it would have removable carpet over the washout flooring with the active drains. I just wrote off the equipment listing as a misinterpretation.

As someone who works in construction... I completely agree. I SWEAR I read or heard somewhere that all bronco's get drains but only the rubberized flooring has active drains/plugs... whatever that means.
All of them have passive drains and apparently only BD and BL have the active drains. I believe you have to open some plug or something for the passive drains to function.

Not going to happen. Pure black plastics had their day in the sun during the late 80's and early 90's.

You don't see many of them around as the plastics faded badly and minor impacts caused too much distortion in the plastics. For automotive purposes, there won't be pure black plastic from molded components again. Vinyl suits it's purpose as a decorative covering when pure black is needs to look weathered in a few years.
