the Ford guy at super cell told me when I asked if it had the sas package said no lift and aftermarket wheels and sas only added about 1” of lift. I thought he was saying all Sas had 1” of lift but maybe not.... confused.OR...because it's a prototype... It doesn't have the same ride height as the final production version.
I'll believe my eyes over Ford at this point in time. It's easily discernible that the Sasquatch Broncos have more clearance under the fenders then this rig does. It could potentially be the weight but I doubt it. The bump stops do not increase fender clearance, they just decrease travel. At this point i'm expecting some type of spacer creating the extra space.
this Bronco had 315s on it at super cel... looks like the same tires to me. I was told Sas added 1” of lift plus 1” more for 35s over 33s. so 2” higher ride height. Just what Ford rep said.Yes this overland Bronco has less space in the fender wells. But those tires are a bit bigger (not 315s) and it's possible that it's a frankenbronco that doesn't resemble production height. But based off of the stats if they are accurate. The only difference between a non Sasquatch Badlands and a Sasquatch Badlands is tires when it comes to ride height. Yes I know the bump stops don't increase anything. They decrease travel at the top.
I made the exact same argument on volume button placement on my Benz... why put the buttons 8” from the damn radio knob. Glad to see I’m not alone.I was lucky enough to be invited by Ford to hang out with the Badlands Overland Concept at the Moab4x4 Expo. They gave me a whopping 30 minutes with it (that I turned into 45 minutes) and this video is the result.
CORRECTION TO EVERYBODY SAYING IT DOSN'T HAVE THE SASQUATCH
It does, it is a prototype. The front and rear lockers are on this, and it is also a manual transmission so there are a lot of mismatched parts here (including the roof rack everybody keeps mentioning). Yes, I was told the morning I filmed this by the Ford handler that it IS a Prototype Sasquatch. They referenced the Filson as having the more up-to-date version of the Sasquatch goodies, so maybe get a look at that one for more details on what the Sasquatch will really look like.
Pretty sure its not lying but just hiring people who do not know off road cars and not training them well. Also a lot of confusion for them over Badlands suspension\Sasquatch suspension where they overlap like 80%.Jus want to be one more person to add that i was at the Tennessee event.
The ford reps also told me that it is NOT Sasquatch.
so that’s great that they told Justin that it was Sasquatch.
but ford told many of us other wise.
I guess take it for what it is worth.
Ford just lies?
and from seeing it in person, it is clearly a different height than all the other Sasquatch pictures.
The New Goodyear Territory M/T is not a Mud Tire, the M/T stands for Max Traction, Goodyear has a video on the New tire somewhere ?I would really appreciate clarity on this as well... I have been stuck between getting a Black Diamond with a squatch or a Badlands with no squatch.
I really don't want mudtires...
