pretty much could go any way at this point.

color unsure.

I may need some counseling by the time I order.

Or

I've gone from Black Diamond to OBX, to BB and back to BD. I've pretty much settled into this build.

Big Bend 4dr
2.7/auto
MIC top
Mid package
Switches
Towing package

Gives me almost every single thing I want and nothing that I don't.

Fair price for something that's as close to perfect for me as possible.

My only holdback in buying now is color. This will be my forever vehicle and I want a color that I will love as much in ten years as I do day one. So I'll wait it out.

this made me laugh, I’ve been doing the same with builds between BB and BD. Ultimately BD with mid is so close in price and comes with a handful of things that will be more desirable whenever it’s resold (aux switches, solid bumper, wash floors, MGV) assuming the used market down the road is likely to be largely off-roaders that I have decided BD. Subject to change of course...

Build took just a couple passes through, the color choice with swapping from interior to exterior 400 plus times to try to get it all to work with the moronic (would have been brilliant with neutral interiors and complimentary accents tied to paint color...) idea to carry paint colors inside the door is still in process. Trying to match the paint to the jarring interior and the various mismatched Gray's on the outside makes me understand the plethoric of soft/pastel/neutral paint colors. Everything else clashes too much, even for the former rock star musicians that Ford hired as designers. They seem stuck in the psychedelic haze of the late '60s. LSD flashback interior aside, the mechanicals are locked in, hoping for a well integrated factory fog light solution for the HD bumper is all.

I'll just pick a color at order time and hope color options get less terrible on the inside or outside before my order is VIN locked.

Badlands, 2-door, manual, lux, optional painted wheels. With Grangetober discount, plus taxes and title, is just a hair below $50K out the door.

Honestly I can't decide on anything! I'm all over the place ... if I look at money then I'm with the BaseSquatch. When not thinking economically then it's Badlands loaded, anywhere in between is frustrating !

I've built every single model and have narrowed it down to two. The BL which was my original and the BD. Mine will be a MY22 so I want to see these in person before laying out an additional $7K for the BL. As much as I really like the BL there is so much on there I'll never use and the BD will get me everywhere and more than I've been in my Ranger. I really want the High package and hoping Ford adds this to other models but I doubt it.

I’m torn between a base 2 door Sasquatch to a 4 door badlands auto/2.7 and every combo in between. Except for outer banks. Really don’t like so many things about the obx

Down to two builds for me. BL with High and Squatch or BL with lux.

I need to definitively know the difference between SAS and BL suspension. If the squatch adds only wheels and tires then I’ll do lux and add some method wheels and tires after the fact.

Been going thru some sticker shock with the higher end models as this is a toy not a DD
Badlands 2.3 manual 2dr. No options
Base SAS 2.7 auto 2dr.

Quite the price difference and carbonized grey was on my color list

Good thing I another month to think it over
