I saw it on the parts list before i ordered with the Sasquatch package, but it just doesn’t make sense NOT to order a trim level that has it already at this point. Labor intensive and it’s not going to be cheap when it’s all said and done.

That being said, it’s awesome that Ford is offering this for those that messed up, or just bought what they could get at the time.

  • If upgrading from M190 FDU, M210 half shafts and M210 front driveshaft required

and when they are done upgrading they will hate themselves for not ordering from the factory to begin with.

It only makes sense to upgrade to 5.13 and 5.38 as it did not come from the factory with these gear choices


Wow!

That's actually really cool that they offer it after market. The guys ordering base and lower trims without Sasquatch have a LOT of upgrade paths now.

I'm most curious to find out if they still have the welded ring gear on these units. As-is, there are limitations on what you can slap in there.

@Rocketeer Rick had a much better and technical understanding of what would be needed/required, i'm still on the uphill slope of having to learn/remember the details on this.

Just noticed this on the Ford Performance website, had not seen it posted on here or Facebook yet. Looks like they're offering the complete M210 diff (with 4.70 or 4.46 gears AND locker) for $1800 đź‘€
Don't forget that if upgrading from m190 to m210 you have to upgrade driveshaft & half-shafts...

$1800 and you still need half shafts, different front driveshaft, and you still have the entire rear axle with a different gearset (and potentially no locker) to deal with. You're probably looking at an easy $3000-3500 + labor. Just Sasquatch it from the factory and be done with it

How about wiring it to the hero-switch? Then you still need the Billsteins, wheels, tires and lift. Sasquatch is an AMAZING deal!

I've got open rear differentials and 3.73 gears and realized I've screwed up majorly lol.

Would these fix that issue?
Still need half shafts, new front driveshaft, and some way to wire in the locker. And that only takes care of the front. Then you need to either re-gear the rear with locker or not, or buy a complete assembly. And again, wire in the locker there.

Does anyone have a spec sheet that shows F/R gear ratios, diff choices, etc. for each trim? Curious to know if the Badlands uses the same Sasquatch front diff when you have the 4.7 rear locker.
