Came across this, first one I've seen someone actually take this up on the ramp and measure the articulation.

Summary of RTI figures by @Spooled

522 with the sta-bar connected
648 disconnected
Compared to others he has tested
KDSS Equipped 4Runner: 555
KDSS equipped Land Cruiser: 661
Ford quotes the standard 2-Door Badlands as having an RTI score of 700.

But my dealer said disconnecting the sway bar doesn't make that much difference!

LOL!!!

Nice vid and comparison. Especially his wall of fame at the end.

Good video. I also like his callout of the sight-lines on the Bronco. I love the way it looks but the Jeep has always looked a lot easier to see around in the front. 360 cameras might mitigate a bit.

From what I have read, adding the Sasquatch package to a Badlands limits the suspension travel slightly so that the tires don’t rub when fully compressed. So it is likely due to that.

We picked our bronco yesterday. The hood is a massive land mass on the front of it. Don’t get me wrong I love this thing. But for technical off roading the Jeep hood is much better. My wife won’t be hitting the rubicon any time soon, so we should be good.

I'd agree with this. In general, without cameras, the visibility in the Bronco is kindof poor. I haven't been in a Jeep in a long time, it wasn't great there either, but definitely a little better.

Saw this late last night. Very nice numbers. I'm hoping he will do a 4 door Badlands on the 33s at some point.
4 door Badlands is supposed to score out around 620

I feel the opposite. The Bronco I have a great sense of where the vehicle starts and stops, where as our rubicon I'm always guessing. A matter of opinion I suppose.
