Awesome! Correct me if I'm wrong...the third video shows the bronco actually making it up the same spot as the first rubicon post?

Yes my take as well (y)

WRANGLER PROBABLY TOTALED SEARCHING FOR SHITBOX
Am I the only one that watches the videos and think "meh"? Kind of just looks like a slightly less capable Jeep.
As has been discussed, we have known that Bronco will not be as capable in the rocks as a wrangler rubicon stock vs stock purely due to the IFS. What we haven’t seen is how close to the Jeep it will be, which IMO these videos shows it to be pretty darn close to a rubicon. But if it does indeed drive way better, does better at speed and washboarded roads... that’s gonna be a huge advantage.

The fact that all of these had 33"s on just makes me want to see how it would perform with the 35" tires on the sasquatch package
35” tires will be a double edge sword. The ability to air down more and additional traction/ground clearance provided will of course be a big advantage. However, Sasquatch broncos are limited in articulation. Hence why these guys were running the 33’s.

Hmm were they using the trail turn control on some of the runs? Just watch the last vid he made it look easy.
once he turned "passenger"

This....being capable in the rocks is one thing but this is going to be my DD. I nearly put my Ranger into a corn field this morning running a little too quick across some washboard....the rear end just said "I'm out." I was daydreaming about a Bronco the rest of the day.

in the first two videos when they're climbing up i was like, i can't believe any car can do stuff like this!! and then they had to go down the other side 😱
to me that looked like it was a say-a-prayer-and-go kind of moment 💀

no i haven't watched offroading videos before the bronco so yes it all feels very dramatic

I knew it would be hanging those tires a lot, but as long as you got lockers and a tire on the ground you can make it. AWESOME VIDs !!!
