Black Diamond non-sasquatch 2.3 manual.
Installed Rough Country 2 inch spacers, 4WP upper control arms and rear track bar.
37x13.50x17 cooper discoverer stt pro tires
Method 701 17x8.5 0 offset

These tires were off my 2016 ram 2500 and just barely rub. I would much rather have 35s but wasn't buying a whole new set of tires.

I have king shocks on pre-order and was impatient so ordered the spacers to install the arms and track bar. Everything installed fairly easy and the 4wp stuff is decent quality. As for spacers, I'm not a fan of them, but that's what's out right now.

The ride pretty much feels the same if not a little better from the tires absorbing some hits.

I didn't order sas package because I took a chance of getting my bronco early. My reservation was 7/28. But I do regret not moving up to badlands. it is what it is.

Looks fantastic!! I was curious about the front license plate mount... Is it the shackle mount? Which one did you order? Can you take a pic if you can of how the mount looks from the side? Thanks!

Yea its the kentrol shackle mount. It mounts good just not sure of it yet. I may drill through the bumper to center mount it over the 4wp logo. So the mount might be for sale.

What lights are you using on the rear bumper? Thinking about getting the 4WP rear once my Bronco gets a legitimate date

Just watched TCC’s latest video where he took his non-Sas badlands with the 2” lift from 4wp and running 37s. He was rubbing a lot especially when running fast in Baja mode and using TTA. Wonder if you will see the same.

What are your regrets with Black Diamond over Badlands? Just the disconnect? I'm thinking about that too, but for me the disconnect (and lights) are $3,000 I'm not sure I can justify.

the bigger front dif, locker, gears. But I liked the black diamond interior way better.
Disconnect I could care less, as you can tell I took the sway bar out lol. If I break something down the road I can always upgrade

Got it. Makes sense. I'm getting sasquatch regardless so I wasn't thinking about the diffs and lockers.

Cruising around town is good, feels about the same. Decrease in highway speeds. 6th gear is cruise control speed now. Before I had good acceleration with the 32s in 6th. Mileage before I was 18-19 mixed. Down to 16-17

And you also get the steel M210 front diff with locker, and the position sensitive shocks with the BL over the BD.
