If you were looking for the most expensive way to add Sasquatch to your Bronco while getting only half the parts you get with Sasquatch.....here you go. I would guess this kit, plus installation, 35" tires and rims with the correct offset, $6k easy. You still don't have 4.70s, skid plates, larger front axle, or front locker.

SAS is a great package. If you try to duplicate it after the fact then it will be more costly and some aspects will not be covered under warranty.

If I’ve learned anything here it’s:

Be wary of unintended consequences when “improving” with these sort of things.

These would be a bit of a downgrade on the Wildtrack/Badlands no? I realize they give height but they lose the remote reservoir and the better damping.
Probably won't know that for a bit. Non-Sas BL seems to have a different shock part number so they may be better than those. WT has the same suspension as a Base Sas, nothing special about it, and again probably won't know for a bit if the Ford performance shocks are "better". I doubt it, time will tell.

No. These shocks states they are 2.65". I don't think the SAS shocks are this big

The remote reservoir are important as they provide more fluid BUT don't forget at 2.65" they are a very big shock and thus hold a fair amount of fluid/gas.

For comparisons, the Gen1 Raptor was only 2.5" so these shocks are bigger then the GEN1 Raptor shocks.

I just bought the badlands bilsteins and springs for all four corners for around $1300 shipped from Ford to go on my BD. Maybe I should have waited, but doubt they have the amount of travel the Badlands will.

Doesn't help that just about every time someone announces a product related to suspension, they only mention the standard suspension (for Base through OBX) and Sasquatch. Doesn't seem like anyone ever remembers that Badlands has its own suspension. (Though admittedly it's like 90% Sasquatch.)
That why I'm waiting on fun haver stuff they have bandlands they been upgrading. Fox suspension is going to work with the bandlands.

Non squach Badlands setup? If so, would you be willing to share the part numbers you purchased?

Looks like my sources were correct back in May, but of course Ford never keeps a schedule, so it looks like they have slipped to "Q1 of 2022".
What do your sources say about a 3" lift kit from SAS by bilstein and ford performance???

Interesting it lists everything but the Badlands and WT. Just not compatible or necessary?
The badlands and WT are already lifted and have external reservoir shocks. This would take off the lift springs and shocks on the WT and replace them with the springs already on the WT and then you lose the external reservoir shocks. So not really an upgrade with the loss of the external reservoir shocks. Badlands will have more travel then these. This is Ford trying to make money on the aftermarket.

If your ordering a bronco from the factory you are better off getting sasquatch but if your buying a used bronco or one on a dealer lot and it does not have sasquatch this would be one step in getting to 35's like the sasquatch, you would still need rims, tires, gears, and lockers but at least you have the option.
