You can get the Black Diamond, marine grade vinyl seats getting rave reviews, I'm at 46k with soft top before taxes, but I added the auto auto since I'm in the midwest. Delete that and you're another 1k less I think....sweet ride for 45k.

Cloth is OK. But white dog hair is a bitch. Wash out interior would be great. Didn’t even know that was an option. I’d probably just get seat covers.
trying to keep the purchase price down and do wheels and accessories after. Ford prices seem a little crazy and make you buy the whole package. I can build it to spec for cheaper with a better selection of aftermarket parts.
Looks like a Black Diamond 2.7 auto.
Cheapest one they have with the washout interior, blank canvas for future upgrades. And by cheapest, it does not mean it's wimpy or substandard.
BD is a great deal at the price point it is without the Sasquatch package.

Highest number/smallest gear in the rear and it will go the quickest in and out of the crazies and around all of the Nor'easters and snowbirds that clog up our roads periodically.
Recommendation for going over aforementioned crazies?

Just too much for the BD. Base model with 2.7 and aux switches is 34k. I’m trying to keep it there. That’s already more than I want to spend.

Do the Big Bend and option the 4.27 locker in the rear. Tires are taller and should only need to be replaced for better tread. Should be more than enough unless you get into that gumbo mud.

I live in south Florida. Don’t ever do any off roading.
my main considerations for building my Bronco are utility, AWD, ecoboost power, room for dogs and guns/gear.
since I’m not planning on doing any crawling, what’s the best gearing solution for a streetable bronco to get the best performance/drivability balance?
southwest coast florida here. i have been through multiple fires, floods, hurricanes, so i must have vehicle that can get me where i need to be. no plans to beat up it up. i went 2.7L outer banks b/c interior choices better, high pkg, and most importantly , i wanted the advanced AWD system for the rain soaked roads. i believe with big bend have to have sasquatch to get the advanced system. can order adv awd system with black diamond but high pkg n/a. gearing shouldn't be an issue, traction on asphalt will be.

I’m a firm believer in AWD. I come from owning audis. So I totally want the best handling for the wet. Especially with Florida wet roads. Need all the help I can get. I’m just trying to keep the cost down. The base model is normally in front wheel, and selectable 4WD ?

Bronco has no option for AWD, auto 4wd engages a temporary 50:50 split after slip has been detected, its reactive, different than a proactive AWD system.
