Soooo...how difficult would it be for a wildtrak to do this or any other Bronco without the sway bar disconnect?
The only thing you need is a rear locker. The bronco sport badlands has a diff lock and made the climb so any full size bronco could do it.

I saw a Jeep Renegade make it up Hell's Revenge. But I've also seen decked out rigs go flipping down it.

Found it:
this is the most torque converter abuse I’ve seen in quite some time...those poor things don’t have low range

Where there are rocks you will find geologists. I didn't know that Bert Kibbler from Big Bang Theory did 4wd videos. Cool....

I don't believe the guy from Our Bronco Life has a beard.
You're probably right. With so much access to Broncos though I would think a beard would grow pretty fast.

I don't know OBL was sporting some decent facial hair here. Still think that was him.

It is interesting that the Bronco's built by 4 wheel parts or ARB did the bypass while the stock Bronco went up Hells gate.
Wonder if Ford asked them not to run it due to GVWR. Hmmm.

Here’s another video with some different footage and interesting comparison of the fun haver ranger to what RTR will have available for Bronco (40s?)

In one of the ride alongs Brad Lovell says that he knows people are going to rip apart the suspension, 37’s, etc. but that he’d personally recommend keeping it stock due to all the tuning Ford has done.
I had that same conversation with him. Still wanting to go 37s, but will wait to see how good the aftermarket setup is. The factory shock tuning was pretty damn nice!

Sweet Zeus that was a great video. Loved the drone shots (photographer for hire here).

Me, I'll never understand the thrill of inching (literally) up treacherous terrain, one errant move away from uninsurable calamitous damage to a $30k-$70k+ vehicle

while a group of people spectate over your impending victory/defeat (and a handful yelling out helpful or unhelpful instructions), but I guess it's nice to know the Bronco is capable of this for the day we finally reach the Apocalypse.

I just want to be able to get to some high-mountain lakes without fear of being stranded, but will be sticking to more reasonable off-road "roads" to do so.
Me, personally, I prefer two tracking in the woods. Couple little mud holes and some rocky-rough terrain, but nothing you couldn't bang a beater car over. I don't get a thrill from rock crawling. More about sight seeing for me. Load the kids and dog up, get my better 3/4's out of the house. Stop at a gas station for some snacks. Then hit the unbeaten paths a bit. Good way to get out for a few hours. Still less than going to a movie. When I was a kid, we did that in my dad's 79 bronco. We went 150 miles without touching pavement once, heading up to mackinaw. Some of my most fond memories doing that stuff.

I have been waiting to see videos of Broncos doing hells gate, wondering how well it would do. I have to say, I am genuinely impressed. Looked pretty effortless in fact! I am also super impressed that the baby bronco was able to do it as well. In any case, this is making me much more excited for my first Moab trip when I get my BadSquatch!
