I built and priced a base 2 door Bronco with Sasquatch. The cost didn't warrant what I get for my money. I've been waiting for the Bronco for 5 years. Kind of heartbreaking.
I'm going with Ranger extended cab XLT with FX4 package. Possibly a leveling kit. It'll do I anything I need need it to do, plus I'll have room to actually take fishing/hunting/camping with me. This video sold me on the FX4, and forgot about a Bronco......
Which model did you build out?

I was all for a manual 2D Badlands or Black Diamond but arrived at the same conclusion you did..... I can get a whole hell of a lot more vehicle for $46 to 50k by going several different routes.
Tacoma , 4runner, Ranger ... even a "loaded" F250 XL crew cab with the 7.3L FX4 is cheaper. ( No new diesels for me...no way....nothing but trouble brewing with those)


Then I priced out a 2D BaseManSquatch and found the value leader of the bunch, and it will work for me. Only thing I can't get is heated seats and hitch and I can do both of those myself.

Surprisingly, or maybe not, the F150 I built was HUGE $$$$$ ....again, the more capable, better equipped F250 was cheaper.

My backup bronco plan is base bronco + squatch (probably) and then aftermarket all the other things. It's kinda sad that options are so limited on packages and interior but i bet we will be able to individually add better quality options than fomoco in the next 18-24 months.

Both an XL and XLT. Likely just get an XL. I don't need all that fancy XLT stuff. I don't even want the stuff that comes on an XL lol. I want metal floor, metal ceiling, am/FM radio, crank windows, and manual locking hubs.
I may splurge a bit, and get a black XLT with the blackout package.......sweet looking ride!!!
XLT FX4 blackout package.......dollar wise I'm still a lot cheaper than a base Bronco with Sasquatch.

The new Willy’s Gladiator looks like a phenomenal value for the price.
If only they gave it the Sarge Green color option ! .. offered on the wrangler willys but not the gladiator, also no LED light option unlike the Wrangler willys it is standard ..

If you are looking to buy new, the STX Special Edition Package gets you a nice looking truck with some nice upgrades on the XL.

So, honest question, who else is impatient and looking at other things? Not pulling any trigger's until my birthday (12/12), but after that Mustang test drive...

I'm looking mostly at F-150, but will wait to see what my Bronco is like and then decide or if the black modular top pushes delivery beyond August.

The interior for the Badlands doesn't impress me. Although I am locked in, this will be a vehicle I plan on driving until the wheels fall off ???

Backup plan? Cancel reservation, save my money and prepare for a dark winter. Play with the toys I already have
