The Outer Banks fishing rig pics recently posted show several shots of the manual seat controls.
Guys, help me out here. The wheels and tires on this Bronco look fantastic! This is exactly what the Badlands with Sasquatch looks like when I built it at Ford's website (albeit in 2-door, attached). But in most pics I see, the tires look way too skinny and are practically flush with the wheel - that great looking sidewall bulge (that I like) isn't there (see the attached 4-door pic from this website). Is it a trick of the light and angle? So, I guess the simple question is, will the Sasquatch package look like above or not?

Also, there is a 2" lift and 37s" coming out, this year?

Finally, do you think you could get 37s" on a stock Badlands Sasquatch (without major rubbing issues, etc.)?

(I've had 2 Broncos but all stock and that was a decade ago at least (5.0s and an MKS/MKC now) so I'm out of the loop).

Thank you!!

Don't base anything on the B&P image - for whatever reason, the tires always look more chunky than they are in real life on Ford's B&P (of any vehicle).

man, the more I see of the FE the more underwhelmed I am. I hate to be negative.
Yep that ship has sailed for me. I'll be downgrading to a blown out Badlands with Soft Top

The best looking wheels imo. I suppose it won’t cost too much to get black beadlocks at least.

I'm assuming Ford will be selling FE and Wildtrak decals. So in theory you might be able to get a FE in your choice of extetior and interior colors. I'm thinking Carbonized Gray with Sandstone First Edition. 🤣

I'm still not seeing any advantage to FE or Wildtrak over a Badlands with or without Squatch.

It really comes down to interior colors, unless you need the swaybar disconnect which Badlands and FE have. I'm probably going Wildtrak as I don't need disconnect and prefer the Sandstone leather, plus I like the look of the matching Black Mod Hardtop, Black Grille, Black Mirrors & Black Trim Rings . Wildtrak and Badlands are close to same price on comparable equipment. FE seems to be approximately $3,000 more comparable equipment. I guess you have to pay the extra $3k to be in the 7000 limited production club.

I like the tire sticking out from the fender as well. I bet it Sasquatch would look good with the regular badlands fender flares on them. It would be easy enough to do.
