Best maybe not. Cheapest capable rig out there for sure. I would be satisfied with it.

Not too me, at least not the 2-door. I want to get back to basics, and this is perfect for me.

I’ll run the highway tires from Granger in Iowa back to my home in Idaho, and then swap over some slightly taller all-terrains.
i have the same plan, love the simple look and with a taller tire it will have an old school look.

Can you explain how the remote start can be purchased separately through the app ?
You can download the Fordpass app on your phone, and connect it to your car by putting in you vin # and whatnot. Once your car and phone are connected you can do all sorts of things with the app, including remote start, lock/unlock, check oil levels, tire pressure, vehicle location etc.

The remote start you pay for with the mid pkg, is on your keyfob. Which is cool, but not a total deal breaker without it because of Fordpass.

To add to that... people don't realize how much is actually included in the Base. Sneaky stuff that you might have to dig to find

why do you need advanced 4WD? It’s quick switch/button while moving. If it snowy or icy, keep it in 4 Hi.
I just like the security of knowing it will do it for me in the whole year when needed the most. When off road I can obviously do it but when on snow and ice thought it would be a key feature to have

That’s fair. I once had an auto-4WD system (Exploder) and I felt it was jerky or too reactive for the situation. Horses for courses...

You aren't off. Best value off roader. For me I was sniffing around the lux SUV market before this dropped. I'm not sure your age but I'm 50's looking to retire soon. I would like to explore off roading but I may just end up having some beers and decide to drive over the ditch in my front yard so this thing gets some suspension travel. I like the capabilities but want some upgrades. Love the way this looks. I may be wanting a Wrangler and Audi Q7 that had one hell of a night together. You will probably be more satisfied with that build. I'm probably not going to come close to using the potential and falling short of creature comforts. Oh well I'm still going to do it.
That's so good (coming from a 50's-on-the-high-end). Go lux.

I’m guess it’s a lot different than AWD vehicles ? I’ve never had auto 4x4 but only driven AWD

Advanced 4x4 has lower gearing in the low range of the transfer case (3.06:1 vs 2.72:1). Makes a bigger difference than the differential gears.

Well, that makes a difference then. Thanks for the clarification!

Fiddled with the idea of getting a basesquatch. No CG takes me out of it. Then I get to BBsquatch, then I add the signature lights and mid and all of a sudden I’m in badlands territory.
