hmmm

i like those 33's

however I think i might just get a 2 inch lift with the sasquach to get more articulation
Supposedly, we're set up right with the 33's as-is. Articulation would of course be hindered by the 35" tires on the stock suspension, if that was available..

I must be the only one who doesnt like the 2dr at all really. So glad I went 4dr.
I think the 2 door looks really good, especially when the top and doors are off. But I am with you I think the 4 door looks better.

I remember when the 4 door wrangler first came out, out of my car guy friends I was the only one who loved it and now I would say almost every wrangler I see is a 4 door lol

I wonder what happened to the rear fender flare on the jeep
Probably about the same thing as me. I took my Rubicon up to Green Pass in WA and caught the back fender on a stump. It popped right off. I jogged back, picked it up off the trail, and threw it in the back, put it back on when I got home. They just snap in.

My wife was freaking out, either about that or the 1,000 foot drop on the right side of the trail. I told her we were guaranteed to bounce once before hitting the bottom.

Looks like the underside of the 4-door took a real beating on the trail.
I want to see the underside of the 2-door as a comparison.

Say what you will about that poor beat up Jeep, but it earned it's badge.

Damn that is disappointing.

I will admit, I was wrong. I still don’t think they’d take the same approach on anything that isn’t a leaf spring. Even the front on the same truck uses different springs and shocks, not spacers.
Oh - I agree with you in regard to the Bronco. I can't imagine that Ford will use spacers/blocks. I think they are treating the Bronco more like the Raptor, because they want to take it to Jeep, and be competitive. The Raptor suspension from the factory is pretty mind-blowing - a real suspension lift and massive off-road upgrade over the regular F150. I was just surprised that they didn't use the Tremor to go after the Power Wagon a bit more. I was epxecting a unique leaf spring pack in the rear that provided both lift and a little more articulation. Clearly, they want the Tremor to be more tilted toward heavy duty towing and hauling, so they didn't produce it with softer rear springs (like the Deaver springs that Carli uses).

Seating position that low is a no go for me. Pre 2020 Tacoma’s have a low position to compensate for the high clearance and low roofline. Don’t want to see that on the Bronco.
My 2013 Explorer seat was ridiculously low, felt like sitting in a bucket. I bought some 1 1/4" spacers and longer grade 8 bolts, problem solved.
