It looks like that it had 35" A/T tires and full pressure to me. The treads do not look like M/T. Those tires had no flexibility on that rock.
Yessir.So take a little more speed (not much) and hope to get on top of the rocks that slowed them down in the initial run?
100% agree. Rubicon usually known to eat vehicles! As for running them stock is def bold considering most ppl who run the rubicon are riding on tons, 40s, and LS swaps! I def think though Moab be where it’s at I think a badlands Sasquatch will be able to do 70-80% of the trails even with IFS. Then anything with 33s MTs or ATs be able to tackle 30-50% depending on driving ability! I wonder who all will take their broncos to Easter Jeep Safari in 22!! They welcome all vehicles!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.
Pretty sure they all have the Sasquatch package and you can get A/T 35 inch on that package so maybe that’s why.It’s interesting they’re testing the stock 33” A/T on the Badlands on the Rubicon instead of the 35” M/T Sasquatch. I wonder if any of them had the larger M/Ts?
The breakover angle on the 4 door is going to make stuff like this inherently way harder. But the 4 door will also be way better in the dunes. It’s all trade offs.I must say that 2 dr looks comfortable and in its element on the rocks but the 4 dr just seems like it’s stretching it a bit.
Awesome pictures and good to see Ford putting the thoroughbreds through this
Going up the side of that boulder is not an experienced crawler move. I think that's Gatekeeper. It's a tough spot.All terrains on rocks like that? Are they even aired down? I wonder if they had anyone with experience drive on those things are if they're just Ford pencil pushers.
