You make a good point with the diff...that is how they get you! While a lot is easily changed or added aftermarket some things are not so easy or cheap. The big question is what does a Sasquatch cost?

Even that said I have 2 JK Saharas, both on 35s, both with stock gears and axles. For the types of offroading I do here in Oregon...lockers are cool but not necessary. Lower gears would be ideal but again, even the 3.6 pentastar has enough power to make it totally livable in normal driving. But if they are priced similarly a 2.3 Sasquatch would be the way to go IMO vs 2.7 with aftermarket stuff.

C'mon Ford, just let us have it already!!!
All I ever needed back when I used to run around Brown's camp in my FJ was 4lo and that rear locker on occasion

I originally wasn’t going to do the Sas on my Badlands, but an leaning towards it now for warranty. I have put high-end aftermarket Icon suspension on both my Raptor and Land Cruiser and each has had leaky shocks within a few thousand miles of install. There’s going to be a substantial cost in fixing both of those shock leaks, mostly in the labor to remove and then re-install.

I know function matters as well as looks, but why aren’t we seeing some clear quality photos of broncos on 33s and 35s? The 2 broncos I have seen that for sure look badass are the orange and cactus from the debut, on fords website it says both have aftermarket parts. Show me good pics of a real car so I can tell what I would get. Not aftermarket equipped, not cgi, not 20 painted black ones that make it harder to see. Rant over...

There is at least one vehicle with Sasquatch in the Rubicon/Moab videos and the rest are on 33s.

i know I’m complaining and it will eventually come out and you are correct. But I want to see this but not cgi, not Aftermarket and not black. This to me, is more useful in determining 33 or 35 because I def don’t “need” 35s for function. Want to know if I like the stance of 35 that much more

That’s kind of my thinking. I would rather get the more powerful drivetrain and then upgrade suspension/wheels/tires aftermarket which is sure to be plentiful. The 2.7 should have no problem with 35’s. I don’t think the gearing and tranny will be a problem eitherI’ve owned a 92 4cyl YJ at one point with 35’s and it managed to do alright on the freeway and the bronco numbers blow them out of the water.

The biggie swaying me is front diff housing. The aluminum concerns me and I would rather have the strength of the cast. I can do lockers later on if need be, but I’m not going to be able to easily swap out that front diff.

It certainly is convenient to get it all from the factory and be able to have those goodies rolled into the monthly payment.

ugh... decisions decisions.
Hopefully we get some pricing soon!
Sasquatch comes with different gears in the rear end.

Does that plan assume the rubberized floor is a part and not spray in from factory? Do we know this?
I read from the Q&A I believe, that the stamping process for the rubberized floor is different than the carpeted floor because of the drains
