These pics from another thread really show how good the regular fenders look with 35s. So, i would love to order the squatch package but get the regular fenders. If not, I now have to debate ordering non sqautch to get the regular fenders but I want the 4.7. But the more I think about it, I would be fine with the 4.46 rear end when I add 35s. My prior Jeeps has 4.10 gears and we’re totally fine with 35s.

any reason to squatch other than gearing?

anyone think we’ll be able to order the squatch with regular fenders? Probably not As the tires will stick it and that’s a no-no in some states.

That's not going to happen. Tires sticking past the body are illegal in some states and Ford won't skirt that.

It'll be easy to change at home though.

Nope, you wouldn't be able to get that from the factory. But, given they're removable, I'm sure you could just purchase a set of the narrower ones from your local dealer/parts department and just swap the narrower ones on yourself at a later date (you may not be able to order them right away).

I'm not convinced that the tires on that Badlands 4-door are 35" because they are similar in size to the 33". The spare is the same size as what's on the Bronco, and it's a test vehicle. They don't leave the test track with possible street illegal modifications (fenders not covering the whole tire).

Thanks - this shows me I should be totally fine with 35s with the regular fenders, only sticking out .6” each side past whee the standard 33s would be. Now just hoping they won’t rub intil I can get a 2 Or 2.5” aftermarket lift

They aren't going to sell you a vehicle with flares that don't cover the tires. There's this little thing called regulations. The general public doesn't appreciate rock chips and broken windshields.

I like the look of the narrow but like my paint better. These kind of tires will throw up rocks and mud everywhere. Other people’s cars will take damage as well with the small fenders

Oh man, OP, you just called in the brigade of people who act like the majority of off-roaders out there don’t already have tires slightly sticking out.

They’ll wag their fingers at you in disgust and cite the (unenforced) regulations for each jurisdictions before you can even blink.

Then they’ll tell you about rocks flying like JFK’s magic bullet until you’re beaten into submission.

Don’t listen to these people; do you, OP.
