I was actually thinking those were the smaller ones. Which would lead me to believe that the standard ones are the correct flairs for anything up to a 285 tire, and the 315s need the wider ones.

Here's a picture of a squatched bronco with what I assume are the wide flairs, and look wider than the ones in these shots.

You're right, once you put them next to each other it's obvious. It's what I thought was the case all along. Guess I'll be getting the bigger flares and 35's for my manual Badlands...

I'm with you on this... I just can't understand all this desire to be black-on-black-on-black. It reminds me of someone running to walmart and buying a bunch of spray cans and painting their car.... total lack of any style.

But each to their own I guess...
So is Gray or White while we’re at it ....

This is probably a stupid detail to notice, but I see in the interior photo that all the controls are backlit in blue, and it appears this may have some version of the ambient foot well lighting from the Mid package (also in blue).

I originally just assumed that the ambient lighting could be user-adjusted - only because that's how I've always seen it that way in other vehicles. But this got me thinking that might not be the case.

If the ambient lighting is not adjustable, that might impact what color interior people want.
If it is adjustable, I wonder if any of the control backlighting will also be adjustable to match?

“Unique Badlands suspension”
Does anyone know what this means? I’m getting an OBX and it only comes with 32’s. I figured at the first change of tires I could jump to 33’s no problem unless there’s some more clearance with the Badlands. Thoughts.
I haven’t done the math, but the Bilsteins add lift.

thanks,
so the Badlands has different bilsteins or does the OBX just not have bilsteins?
A non-Squatch OBX will not have the Position Sensitive Bilsteins. Has to have the Squatch to get them. Badlands is the only model without Sasquatch that has those. (FE and WT both come stock with Sasquatch.)

I suspect that is the cutoff for the beefier IFS components too.

Administrator update: added photos from factory.

Keep in mind these are preproduction vehicles and aren’t fitted with all the parts we’ll see on the production Badlands.

Good look at the dashboard, center console and leather seats.

Are you sure this is the badlands? Looks like the marine grade seats that had been “confirmed” on this site. Also the badlands does not have carpet. Can we get some clarification?

Ok, thanks for the clarification. Guess I'll get good at leaning over to pull in the passenger side. Pretty sure I won't be able to train the dog to do it for me. Haha
My understanding is they are automatic...the automatically fold at the first tree you hit.

I don’t like how the leather is not tight on the seat looks like

a seat that’s been sat on for 3 years already
Again, keep in mind these are prototypes. Either the process wasn't nailed down 100 percent yet or they just didn't care about that aspect of the product just yet because they were tinkering with other things.

I doubt they'll let things like this go out the door in 2020 especially with this much demand and excitement over their product.

I had a bad experience with Ford Leather on my 2015 F-150. Not the back like this, but the seat portion was fairly stretched/loose with indents after only 3-4 months of use. I had to live with it... For reference I weigh about 210 lbs, which I wouldn't consider to be outside of a tolerable range for the leather/seats to handle. I will say it didn't really continue to get worse. Looked about the same after 3 years as it did at 4 months of ownership.

A lot can change in 5 years in terms of materials/processes used, but I am going to try the vinyl seats this time around.

Ambient lighting is adjustable (usually 7 colors or so), but the controls on the dash aren't changed.
