My friend, you are not the only one. I too will be basically getting a lux Badlands SAS'd, etc for basically the same reasons. Hopefully, it will be a quality truck and in a couple of years it will be paid off and we'll just enjoy it.My dream build from what I’ve been given is a BD Sasquatch V6.
But wife wants the 12 inch screen and some tech. I would love to have heated seats, heated steering wheel , and remote start as one package.
To get a “cold weather package” you have to get lux. Which means you have to go badlands.
And spend thousands on other stuff I don’t want.
It’s unfortunate, but business as usual by ford. I guess. I’m buying a bronco no matter what. But I wish I wouldn’t get killed for what I want
