392
Besides the upgrade from 285s to 315s, does anyone know the difference between a 392 and a 392 XR?

XR has 456 gears compared to non XR having 373’s.
Tailgate reinforcement is standard due to 35” tires. A few other small things but that’s primary difference.
Hope that helps.
 
35” Tires
Wider Wheels
4:56 Gears
Shocks/springs(same height)
Sway bar links
Tailgate reinforcement
Spare tire relocation kit
Spare tire carrier
E-Assist Brake Vacuum Booster
Tail lamp extensions
Fender extensions
Jack Spacer
110 mph speed limiter versus 99
Bump stops
Steering box
Steering pump calibration
Blind spot/backup sensor calibrations are different
 
E-Assist Brake Vacuum Booster
Good list; but I think this one is total mythical BS. This is not meant in anyway to throw shade on you list but the brakes are the exact same. Same master cylinder, same vacuume booster, same calipers, same rotors, the part numbers match.
"E-Assist" references the fact that there is an Electronic Braking system, that is true of all 392's. Vacuum assisted brake booster or "Power Brakes" has been standard for decades on all vehicles and are the same on all 392.
If you look at the official XR press release upgrade list it's basically a wheel and axle upgrade with the associated elements (jack spacer, tail lights, fender trim, etc) as @392Stinger said. That is why it cost $3,995 and not $9,995. Nothing is free and they would not upgrade everything under the hood for only $3,995. It makes no mention of brakes or steering upgrades. Someone on a facebook group added these mythical differences later and people keep referencing this info. In engineering there is only shit and shinola, if you can keep 'em straight you'll be all right.

I would love for someone to explain to me what an:
E-Assist Brake Vacuum Booster

Is and exactly how it works. Electronically controlled engine vacuum to the brake booster? 😂

Agreed with your assessment and recon package is available on more than just 392’s so some of that other non essential stuff applies to other trim versions.
I’m no hater either but for me, XR package wasn’t available when I ordered mine and wouldn’t have ordered it even if it was. I don’t like stock wheels and tires anyway so my 35’ With 373 gears are perfect for me.
 
Agree about the wheels. I like the non-XR wheels better. However, I would have gone XR if I could have.

I got my non-XR order in at the end of April, but nothing on cryptostickers yet. I'm seeing regular Rubis ordered around then showing up with builds already. I wonder if some of the later order 392's might be pushed over to 2023 (or offered to be pushed over) like what happened with the XR folks.
