Trail Turn Assist (TTA) is a switch (on/off) located on the Hero Bank Switches. It is a function of the 10sp Auto. It can be turned on and left on. It will only engage at slow speeds (I think 10mph or below) and with the the steering wheel turned full lock. No additional buttons on the steering wheel are needed.
is there a picture of the badland with this switch, building it on website does not add. I saw a video of the driving using the steering wheel buttons to turn on. or did I eat too much and was dreaming this.

You are dreaming it. The driver was setting the Trail Control (left side of the air bag) settings (increase/decrease). The TTA Hero Switch has been located on the far right of the Hero Switches. It can be turned on ahead of time. It doesn't need to be "turned on" for each TTA that is being executed. If it is on, then whenever the steering is full lock below 10mph, it will engage the TTA.

During our ride on 2/3, I noticed the clunking noise also. What I saw was the rear hardtop window moving during the Baja mode demo at speed. Looked to be slightly opening /closing on passenger side. The rest seemed pretty solid and we did bang the skid plates at least a couple times

I haven't seen this video posted on here yet. Not my video, but popped up on my YouTube.

Some cool shots of the trail cam functionality that I hadn't seen before. And they get up to 70!!!

By far, the best example of one in motion, in real world. God bless you sir. Simply amazing. We all thank you 🍻

They’ve been beating the snot out of these Broncos for several days now on that course, even before us schlubs got there. One guy said they broke some things pushing one hard, but what do you expect in that terrain, especially the way they’re driving these Broncos unlike any of us will do to a $50k daily. And outside of that one breakage when it’s being pushed hard by pros repeatedly in that terrain, I’m thinking anything comes apart is on the driver for going too far in a production vehicle. Those dune buggies are spendy btw.
Knowing FORD they are including these rides in their durability testing. Still testing, verifying, and upgrading.

Wasn’t there a question previously if you could turn off rear lockers in Baja mode? In the video it sounds like the guy says “lockers off, sway bar reconnected” when he switches back to Baja. So essentially it becomes the same/similar to Sport right?

So in my ride-along, as well as a couple other ride-along videos I can't help but notice these drivers making these comments to the effect of "these things are so easy to use even a woman can do it". Basically saying that the technology is so dialed in and so simple to use that even a dumb broad can hang with the guys. I don't know about the rest of you, but it's annoying & gross. There's a decent amount of women that off-road more regularly than a lot of the newbies on here. It's not new either, I remember a girlfriend in high school reminding me to lock my hubs one time. I almost proposed right then haha. Anyway, just a gripe of mine as I see a lot of those stupid comments here as well. I'm getting dizzy up here on my soapbox but had to say it. Happy trails.

All of this has me strongly considering changing my order from BD to BL, I think I’ll drive it on the beach maybe for a total of 7-8 times a year but the bigger tires look better, I’d love the 12 inch screen, and Baja on the beach.
