They probably just put a spacer under the jounce bumper. Or above I guess depending on perspective. You could probably get 33s and remove the spacer keeping the lift. Just my guess.

Does less than half an inch matter at all?
In this case, I’d say absolutely not. More or less saying the suspension is identical to the badlands besides the bump travel 1cm limiter. No ride height gain or loss.

Agreed.. sounds like they are identical but because SASQUATCH comes with larger tires, they have to put a bump stop as to not trash the fenders or they would have warranty claims.

What matters to me is how it's done. He said similar setups. What does that mean? In my vernacular, similar and same aren't used interchangeably. Same shock and coil, but one has more preload than the other? That can be a way that limits travel, but also gives a harsher ride. Do they both use the same control arms and are those control arms the same as the base suspension? What exactly is this limiter? Is it just a taller bump stop that has no affect on droop? If so I would probably get rid of it and just trim the wheelwell where needed.

To me, there are still a lot of unanswered questions, because I want specifics to make an informed decision. I most likely will end up replacing some or all of the suspension at some point, but I would like to know what I'm starting with and what my options are. Vague answers don't give me the information I'm looking for.

So to answer your question, I don't know if half an inch matters at this point. I guess if I was interested in running a stock 4WD, I'd have a better answer for you.

I think the most important question is this; how easy is it to disco the sway bar manually? If it’s difficult or impossible that’s a pretty huge disadvantage for the Sasquatch non badlands Broncos.

I couldn't find if somebody has already answered this but, if I understand correctly, the sasquatch suspension comes with limiters preventing full upward travel of shocks to keep tires from hitting the tire wells. Does anybody know what the limiter actually is? Is it just a longer bump stop? If so, would it be somewhat easily removed?

The reason I'm wondering is say I end up going with the Black Diamond w/ sasquatch mostly for the lockers and better shocks etc, but I wanted to put 33s on it, could I remove the bumpers and regain full articulation?

Agree that’s more important. But I would be surprised if there weren’t affordable after market options for at least easier/quicker manual disconnect. I know it may be more complicated for IFS, but there are many cheap aftermarket options for the wrangler.
