I read a lot about how SAS setup/tires are perfect for rock crawling and sand but how will it hold up in the Northeast winter trails? Downed trees, snow slushing into mud etc. Thanks for the input!
You just described the other perfect scenario for Squatch!I read a lot about how SAS setup/tires are perfect for rock crawling and sand but how will it hold up in the Northeast winter trails? Downed trees, snow slushing into mud etc. Thanks for the input!
This thread can help you out on your consideration of adding 35s to the optional Badlands wheel.Thinking of skipping Squatch and getting the optional wheels, possibly adding A/T 35s later. I know the wheel itself can accommodate them but does anyone know if these KO2 35s (34.4) will fit on a non-Squatched BL without rubbing when turning? Seeing as true 35s fit on the Overland Build, I don't think they will look too stuffed.

My 2 cents - First, a BD non Sasquatch is a great rig and like others said, will get you most places. But to answer your question, it depends on what type of trails you think you may want to run. The non Squatch BD will do fine on all easy and Moderate trails but if you want to do more than that, you will likely need to add bigger tires, a little more clearance and in some cases a front locker. On a number of Moab trails, the 32s would be fine for much of the trail but On a number of the great trails in Moab and elsewhere, there are like 1 or 2 obstacles (with no bypass)which having the Sas setup would make it much easier and get you over/through very easily. Without a Sas type setup on those obstacles, you might have to turn back there or park and ride in someone else’s rig beyond that obstacle. But, what’s nice w the BD is you can add these mods if you want in the future - so get what you want and then mod based on what you want to do with the rig. Modding your rig will be fun and addictive.if I were going to MOAB or Canyonands wheeling, how upset would I be with the unsquatched BD? Would I be frustrated at all? Maybe the unsquatched Bronco is totally a fun rig.. Maybe a lift and 32s could get me 90% of the way there.
