I wonder what Bronco was filming this Bronco! Camera looks pretty smooth (thought I'm sure some video motion smoothing is happening). lol

If you get a Badlands with the 2.7 and Sasquatch, is it going to have the same suspension underneath as the Wildtrac? Just wondering if you run the badlands like this over the same terrain if it’s going to float like this video.

Yup. Just has the sway bar disco too so will have that advantage at lower speeds.

Great to hear! Wasn’t sure if the suspension was tuned differently or not between the two. That two door in this video is floating across that terrain! Looks impressive! Maybe I will be able to just get rid of my RZR Pro Xp after all.

One of the RTR guys described driving the Bronco as “Equal parts Raptor, old school Bronco, and side by side” so take that as you will.

hadnt seen that video in a while! Looks like BD wheels but do we know if it’s stock suspension or the badlands/Sas suspension?

B-roll is just stock HOSS.

No Bilsteins.

Awesome! That’s encouraging that even the stock HOSS is that good!

HOSS is 4 coil over shocks with IFS front axle and Live/Solid axle rear.

Dayum, that suspension is amazing. My Jeep would beat you to death on a run like that.

I wish I had the video equipment to capture shots like this.

It’s kind of hard to find videos of jeeps doing anything similar stock because you just really can’t. But here’s a Jeep with a $5k+ coilover conversion doing some similar running:

Another take away from the original post, the stock tire carrier looks really robust. There's barely any movement from the 35 spare on the bronco. The suspension helps a bit, but the stock carrier is definitely holding its weight compared to the built wrangler. I'm glad to see ford didn't over look this detail.

Is it just me or does the front axle look like its broken or something? So much wobble.
