Yes, I think so. I can go down a trim level, add squatch, keep the manual and be very happy.
For me I'll probably end up ordering the Black Diamond with manual and if Ford makes the Sasquatch package possible with the manual I'd really consider it. it looks great with the 35s but do you think it will still preform well with the bigger tires?

I ran my ‘99 Ram 1500 with the 5.2 5 speed 3.73 rear end with 35” tires. It was always fine just my speedo was off.

I'm pretty sure at this point I'm going with the manual but if the Sasquatch package ends up being a possibility with the manual I may just have to go for it.

For the people that were still planning on get the manual, would you add the Sasquatch package to your Bronco if Ford makes this happen?
The orginal plan was a base mansquatch, but I've fallen in love with the Badlands and squatch adds no value to it imo, so I doubt it at this time.

Absolutely, it may cause me to change trim levels. A Base/Big Bend Mansquatch pretty much negates the need for a Black Diamond or Badlands ....for me. But still, price -wise, it may still make sense to just get the Badlands non-Squatch.
It all brings us right back to the B&P and whatever inclusions/exclusions in the options are.

I look at what I’m getting. Front M210 with locker, better suspension, lower gears, bigger tires, and I get to keep the manual.

I am manual only, so some of those I figured I’d be paying for aftermarket anyway. Performance is related to gearing. Should be fine.

I was getting the BD, but will probably drop to the BB if manual squatch is a thing. I’ll add the aux switches and have e everything I need. I was originally in for the rubber floor, but not as high on it now having seen it. The BB with man squatch will be great.

Yep , it's the running gear that interests me.

Now that we are starting to realize the marketing genius of making vinyl an upscale option....kinda loses its novelty. LOL

Thanks for your input its much appreciated. I'm looking into getting into the manual scene and it will be my first as a DD. I reserved a two door OB but like you will probably drop down to the BD. I was considering the Sasquatch until we learned it wasn't available with the manual but if they change that I might just go for it.

I'm still on the edge of the rubber floor, I like the idea of it just on how useful it will be. I normally add Weather tech mats in my vehicles just because the carpet flooring doesn't seem to get clean enough for me. I haven't really looked at the pictures of the rubber floors but when I get to build mine I probably will before I finalize my build.

I agree it all comes down to the B&P tool whenever if ever they launch it lol. I think the BD w/ Sasquatch package will be a winning common combination, but more people will still probably go for the BL regardless of price.

That's potentially neat. I likely won't be getting a squatch, as it'll be a DD, but time will tell

Just to confirm the m210 axles are included in the sasquatch ? Those are the steel ones right?

22K is probably is underpriced for the Bandlands. Currently you can buy a 2016 4 door rubicon for 15K less than a 2020 (30K vs. 45K), which is still amazing resale relative to most cars, but also far from being "similar price to what you can get a new one for." The 4 year and 10 year marks are usually the sweet spots to buy a used car.
Come to California and prepare for sticker shock. Using Autotrader.com and starting with a 2015 Rubicon Unltd, the minimum asking price starts at $30,000. I assume the Bronco will be in the same pricing territory. Go figure!
That would be awesome if true! Now we just need the manual with the 2.7L and I will be set!
But that would be with the 2.3, right? Not the 2.7?
How hard is it to slap some 35s on a 2.3 manual?
Mating a manual to the 2.7 is the news I want to hear about.
This would be cool if it was being offered with the 2.7... if not it changes...nothing... for me
I doubt we get the 2.7 paired with the manual for initial launch, but if we pedal hard enough, we might make it a reality for future iterations.
Seems like 2.7L with a manual would be a bigger headline than 2.3L w/ manual + Sasquatch package. But we know a manual won't be coming at launch for the 2.7L.
What all of you said. This is cool, but for my money I'd rather have the 2.7 with the manual... With the 35s that's just even more rubber to spin with the 2.3.

Saw on Broncnation, someone spoke with a Ford rep at the Celebration and they said the Mansquatch will probably be 2022 if it’s offered. Also read that the 4 Door Base will come with Manual. Who knows what’s true at this point. Would like a Base 4 Door ManSquatch. A great deal under $40k.
