They'll claim it's a GVWR issue....seems lame to me since you can add lots of other heavy stuff! Like the towing package!

WHAT?!

This is the first I'm hearing about this!

That's it. Bait and switch, if you ask me. Land Rover Defender here I come!

v6 is more quiet? 🤨

Edit: v6 must overheat more as winch is not allowed in front on the grille!

You will not be allowed to put a pillow or a blankie in the backseat either

It will put the whole rig off balance and it might tip...

What weighs more, a winch and mount or headliners? Something is not right with B&P.
Well, one sits low and one sits high, and high weight has a big effect on rollover potential. It may be a matter of just testing it with rollover before it is cleared. It can't be that heavy.

Apparently, everyone of you are going for the 4door because all of these options work on the 2door w/2.7 & 2.3 Badlands! So, I’m thinking its more of a B&P issue that will get fixed! However, it does look like some accessories with certain packages will not be allowed due to GVWR & center of gravity issues that would make Ford liable when selling them as factory options! Just buy & put those on aftermarket!

Gotta get those back doors off, then.
