Anybody else new to the offroad scene like I am see these videos and just in awe that people actually do this stuff in brand new vehicles lol
I think you can rent from the likes of Twisted Jeeps in Moab - perhaps they add a dozen or so Broncos to their fleet in the coming years. Remember to add accidental coverage!

Most of these trails have bypasses for the realy difficult/technical parts.

An anemic 4 banger can make it through with proper gearing, technique and tires. Whilst, I am happily awaiting my 4 Door BL. Great video.

I couldn't find any stock Jeeps going through it on video...even the heavily modded ones with 37s+ were struggling. I did see one Jeep on 33s make it up after struggling, but it had a big lift and was modded. Tons of videos of the place...none I looked at made it look easy.
How about an Xterra on 33's backwards.

While we're getting off topic, this is an oldy but goodie for those new to the off-road scene. For anyone struggling about how hard core your Bronco needs to be to handle your trails.

I don't think that's Mickeys Hot tub there's a few out there and by the looks of it he went down the steeper of the two side. Well done none the less.

Incorrect. The four-door doesn't look nearly as good as the two-door. :p
I think they both look pretty sick, but the only reason I'm choosing 4-door is because I'm a family man now aka it will be much easier getting my 20 month old in and out of her carseat, than it would with a 2- door.

Having never done any rock crawling is this something that a stock Rubicon would get through as easily? Just wondering as it looks pretty amazing and every video I have found shows Jeeps with lifts and 37's going through it.
here's a video of a rubicon with 33s doing it

Am I the only one thinking how EVEN MORE capable these things would be with legit tires? These manufacturers pandering to jackwagons who will complain when their off-roader doesn't handle perfectly on the highway, with severely watered down factory tires, just drives me insane. Go ahead with these Goodyear's, or a bfg ta ko, on the base models, but if somebody is willing to buy an off road model like Badlands, Wildtrak, or anything with Bigfoot, put some legit knobbies on it. Heck, Trump even just gave you an out from this Goodyear deal by riling up half your potential customers:

33s....but not stock,. He has a good size lift on that truck.
So the flat fenders make it look more lifted than it is. Guessing that is a 2-3” lift.

Here’s mine - imagine with 1” smaller tires and flat fenders at the top of the flares:
This is mine on a 2-1/2' lift and 34" tires.

I haven’t found a stock Rubi doing Mickey’s though.
