Like most here, these were the first pics i've seen of the Bronco where I was unimpressed by what we were looking at.EH, looks about the same to me.
hopefully most of us will be able to get what we want and not be influenced by what othersIf I remember correctly the BD tires measure in around 32", maybe a little under (31.7" I think).
I agree the small tires look like shit, but Race Red
and risk having pictures taken and posted online not following company policy. Then the company is taken to task for not following local guidelines for back-to-work risking penalties or shutdowns.Can we quit this yet? It's likely company policy. We've seen a number of photos of Ford employees doing the the same in the past.
Even if it's not let's not call them idiots just for wearing a mask despite how you may feel about it.

'"need" or thinks looks better. Eventually there is a coolness factor to the basics and maybe others will not feel the need to touch it or borrow from it. From the drivers seat I will feel as cool as everyone else. I can be this guy and to outsiders (non-Bronco crowd) we are one in the same. Yes, Race Red from day one.
Amen brother. I'm in the same boat. I'd love BD, but love the look of the SAS too much. I think I'd have to at least buy the 33s upon delivery if I went without SAS, but BD is a really good rig to give you just enough of what most people love without a crazy sticker price. I assumed I'd put up the money for BL, but Ford sucks you in with all the option packaging schemes and the price goes north of $50k every time I build one, so BD is looking better every day. I need to make up my mind quick though...This ^^^
For me, it is about optimizing performance for the dollar. For me, this performance will be every thing from daily driving, to long trips that go through the mountains of NC, to fire roads in WI and MI, to the at times nasty rutted, muddy roads that can be found on Edisto Island, to Manitoba in the winter. This means balancing on-road acceleration, braking and cornering, mileage, winter performance and off road capability. I want equal or better off-highway performance to my '05 Xterra Off Road. (I actually don't need quite that capability as I got by with an '88 XJ --29" tires, limited slip -- and a '96 2 door Explorer Sport -- 31" tires, limited slip -- before the Xterra.) For me, the 2.3 7M Black Diamond 4 door fills this niche perfectly. (I'd rather have a 2 door but family + dogs don't allow it.)
Back in July I would have said I want a 2.7 7M Sasquatch but once I realized this wasn't happening I started to think about how I use the vehicles I have now and the BD was perfect. It may end up with 33's for the summer when it is time to replace the original tires...
Race red or cactus grey for me right now.
