If you look at the sheet ford puts out it doesn't say "included with sasquatch package" which makes me think it's available independently. Hence why i will get it on the BD and save money and later i can have a front locker installed after its paid off with axle already installed

We are all just guessing and wishing for now since B&P doesn’t exist. I think 210 will not be a possible one item upgrade. Available if you squash it as a package.

Jake, how does the Jeep hold up to the crappy PR roads? I left the island in 2014, but did not own a Jeep when I lived there. I miss the lechon and the Ceviche House in Isla Verde.
Been holding up well, it has almost 190 k on it. Luckily my 1997 was built when Jeep still understood that steering was important (if you don't follow Jeep forums the new JL apparently has a lot of steering issues) so I can dodge the larger pot holes. I'll have an extra bowl of shrimp and octopus ceviche, my personal favorite, for you this week.

The factory tires are only 30".
Same as the Base Bronco.
33" tires will barely fit with some mods.
32" just happens to be the biggest factory tire Ford puts on the M190 and 2.7L V6.
So besides being a bit undergeared, the base with m190 should be able to handle 32”s?

I don't see why not. I believe that is the stock Black Diamond setup.

2.3L stick will not be under geared at 4.46 and 32"s
2.7L will have plenty of power with the 3.73 gears.
2.3L / 10A is the only one that will be on the weak side.

I would think that 33's are about the limit for the M190, based on everything I've heard to this point. Even then, I there'll probably be asterisk on "how you drive it".

Bronco looks to need big tires to fill those wheel wells. I was all for 33s, but am now wondering if it needs 35s to look good. If the M190 can’t handle 35s, that would suck.

So, the m210 has a steel housing, is significantly stronger with a 210mm ring gear, and always comes with a locker (it is only on Sasquatch, badlands, wildtrak, and first edition)

the m190 is the same as the ranger, has an aluminum housing, a weaker (but not weak) 190mm ring gear, and never comes with a locker.

we have no indication that the m210 will be available as an option without Sasquatch on any trim that it’s not standard on, so I would not bet on that being available.

in an older thread I went on a bourbon-fueled all out analysis of them and their strength, so here’s a link to my old post.

Personally, I think the 33s look great and the 35s look overstuffed. At least at the stock ride height, they just don't look they could possibly articulate well under those flares. That looks fine on a Unimog, but somewhat comical here IMHO.
