Can someone confirm or disprove, was the 2-door riding on 33’s or 35’s?

Cool videos and pics. Thanks for sharing! I'm not going to be into the rock climbing aspect as I plan on getting the Bronco for the use of overlanding and camping in off-the-beaten path spots. Curious though, did they end up making it up the rocks?

Lol..
I guess these modified jeeps that couldnt make it in the same spot must've used open differential.vs the "solid front differential" you mentioned? Go to 29:00 in the video, you see a modified jeep not able to get up the same spot and was winched up. In another video someone here attached, that group of jeeps did make it...
Shows there are a lot more factors that determine your success at a given obstacle than a vehicle.
actually like that channel. he's really informative and seems to know his stuff. kinda binge watching it lately.

Did anyone notice the trail camera? Looks like they copied the new Jeep Gladiator.

I haven't invested enough time to read all 17 pages of comments but it looks to me like they are running street tire pressure. The tires should be folding over the rocks and in both videos and all of the pictures they look fully inflated.

To me the fact that they’re even trying to do the rubicon is all I need to see. As has been discussed ad nauseum, the wrangler will be better in the rocks just due to the SFA. But If Bronco can at least keep up that’s all I need to see.

The rubicon is probably a harder trail than 95% of Bronco owners will ever attempt.
Yes I appreciate the effort of Ford going at that trail. The photo below is similar to the sort of trails I was running every other weekend while living out west in the Rockies. If the new Bronco can handle those, then I would be happy. I do think the IFS will represent a compromise, but hopefully as a package it does well.
