So here's a question...

Assuming you get the lift and the 31's... will a spare of that size still fit inside? Maybe @Granger Ford might know..

it appears the wheel storage only fits the 29.5”. Might need to modify box to make it fit. Need another 1.5” to clear.

If not, it won’t look bad on a cargo platform on the roof. You can use the spare tire compartment to store other things.

The 31" actual size is 30.5" so we only need and extra 1/2" per side to fit.

If not , we could carry it with low air pressure along with an air compressor.

That’s true, always have a compressor handy.

Very astute! Since they displayed this as a concept, you’d think/hope they would have considered this.

question: do you have a compressor you like? Deflator?

Not yet, let us know if you find any quality compact units?

Really great thread post... love that photo of the tire space... I was already mentally pondering the spare tire well as opportunity for varied packing needs... have to get hands on it first to really see options of course. Tons of videos on youtube for spare mounts on the hitch, but here's one on a 4 Runner...

Can someone explain the benefit of doing a 1” lift? Is this an option you can select or something you’d do after you get it? And why?

The main benefit to an off-road vehicle is when you have a lift it gives you additional ground clearance to help avoid and drive over obstacles. The second reason is simply to give a lifted vehicle a more rugged appearance.

The only way I would do this if in fact Ford carries through and takes these teaser show vehicle options to production, if they do, and you select it, it may be a factory install or it maybe a dealer installed option. If it is one of those your factory warranty stays intact. If you go aftermarket, there is a chance Ford could deny a warranty claim if you need something repaired that they say was damaged by the lift. For example, your axle CV joints will be running at greater angle then original, this could put additional wear on them. By going with the factory lift, you would know the Ford engineers designed the lift to stay within the original design limits of the axle CV joints.

In this photo, starting from the right, the red and cyber orange Bronco Sports have the 1" lift. The third one in, Area 51 (bluish) is stock, without the lift.
