How much would it cost to install similar suspension and shocks to a regular Bronco?
$20k from whatever off road shop in SoCal comes up with it 😉

Are you saying the WildTrak will depreciate the fastest and won't be worth much as a trade in a couple years after purchase? Grim!
Nothing too special about the Wildtrak, you can get essentially the same thing in a Base/2.7L/Squatch for $10k less.

It looks so much better with some tire gap. And those are definitely hoses. I seriously doubt they'll want to make this thing even heavier with a hybrid. And there is zero floor space for any batteries and motors. It's just very unlikely to be a thing.

Assuming someone doesn't want package options. If they do, this is not relevant.

Now this is pretty awesome and all but can we get like a souped up trail rig with a higher pay load, winch, better tow rating, maybe open hard rooftop tent, snorkel and dare I say SFA😬. . . ?

You know, something to flex what it’s really designed for.

I guess I can make a Badlands close to that but still. I never really quite got the go fast Raptor idea for a Bronco but it is pretty bitchin though doubt they make a 2d cause what’s the point.

Those are the exact wheels I'm wanting to put on my Badlands. Hopefully, they'll be offered thru Ford Performance or I can snag a set from a Warthog owner looking to upgrade.
Or get them on e-bay as Raptor take-offs

realistically 2500-3500 plus control arms if needed. of course they wont be live valve but i dont think any one really gives a shit about that. seems like something that would eventually become a problem and potentially make rebuilding the shocks a PITA

Over on the FRF forum there are plenty of take-off wheels and tires for cheap. Raptor wheels are a 6x135 bolt pattern. I don't think they are compatible.

Sure, if you ignore the other features it comes with and options it has available.

I hear there's 4" of space in the cargo area ;)

3.0 shocks will run you more than 2500-3500 all the way around easily.

Shocks, uppers control arms, lower control arms, tie rods, axles, and rear axle housing to match the front width I would bet you’re in the $10K range pretty easily. $15K if you have a shop do all the work.

Just remember, when you start changing suspension and putting 1” FK Heims and rod ends and the like, maintenance and NVH go way up.

As I’ve been told before, “Trophy Truck parts, Trophy Truck problems.”
