even though it didn't look like it was disconnected. he had the rubicon which has them. the bronco would have done the same with the same driver. just because the bronco will ride down the road better then a jeep, doesn't mean it will out handle a jeep on the rocks. know the limitations to your vehicle.
Yeah, but, it didn't have G.O.A.T. modes, right?

GOAT mode puts the vehicle in optimal drive for the condition. The driver still has to manage not to roll it.

Why would you think any vehicle would or should make up for the drivers stupidity?

You keep wanting the Bronco to solve all off-road situations, the driver is required to be responsible and gain experience in dangerous or risky situations.

Always remember to keep your arms/legs inside if this ever happens to you and always wear your seatbelt off road. Example of driver error in line choice and this an extreme situation of where a manual offroad can potentially save you in a case like this *if* you’re prepared for it. You’ve got more control with an auto and that’s why they’re generally preferred for rock crawling. However, unless you have your hand on the shifter ready to pop it into neutral when you get too far off camber, you can end up in situations like this while doing serious crawling. With a manual, you can depress the clutch to let it freewheel and you might be able to save it. Stock roll cage thankfully held up very well. No injuries. Anyways, here it is:

Even though it's exciting to watch I always feel bad for people when seeing those expensive vehicles go ass over tea kettle.

That's my point, and you're eloquent in its delivery. Thank you.

AGM batteries are are a great upgrade and your story is a great reason why.
