Will the 2.3 EcoBoost with the 10 speed auto have enough power to run 35 inch tires from the Sasquatch package? Will it be better if I tune it?

Our Ranger is running 35's and has no problems. More power than a Jeep for sure. We are leaning toward the 2.7 on the Bronco, but would go 2.3 if the price is too much.

What MPG's do you get with the 35 inch tires on the Ranger?
Interested to know this as well. While I likely will not go with the Sasquatch package, I will certainly get 34-35 inch tires. So with the weight of the 2 door being similar to the ranger along with 3.73 rear gears, this should be a good indication about my expected MPG.

Also @BAJA FORGED

Does at any point the 2.3 seem sluggish in a heavier vehicle like the Ranger? My decision tree is base model 2.7 auto or big bend 2.3 auto.

We are averaging about 15 MPG on the Ranger. We frequently drive from our shop in San Dimas out to Johnson Valley (KOH area), about 100 miles of freeway and highway roads. We will get somewhere in the neighborhood of 250 miles per tank depending on what we are doing of course.

When we built it for SEMA 2018, it was under a major time crunch, and didn't have time to deal with it. Then we started using it, and never really worried about it.
Once the Broncos come out, we will probably end up selling it anyway.
