No, this is EXACTLY what they should do. Or, anywhere with wide open expanses of desert running.

This is where the IFS Bronco would excel at and beat the Jeep, no doubt. They need to take these three to Baja and do some hardcore, high speed desert running, with smaller-sized rock gardens, similar to what they did in the launch video, just more of it.

That's where the Bronco shines and it would literally leave Jeeps in the dust.
I’m guessing this is why Jeep released the Mojave edition Gladiator recently. They probably have better intel than we did or do, and knew Ford was going to smoke them in the open dessert and at speed on the trails. They wanted to try and get ahead of the curve, or as much as possible anyway.

My prediction is we see pics, get excited
See 14 seconds of video with a failed attempt, meltdown
See 6 minutes of video with successful attempts, jubilation

Also... isn't the 4 door also the test truck from Johnson Valley that put on a bunch of high speed desert miles?

EVO has a Mojave Gladiator at the moment they have been sharing their adventure! It’s been a good one! I’m def not biased either EVO knows what they are doing they build some amazing rigs! So def cool see both the adventures happening. Maybe they will cross paths!!

Which I’m thinking if the try to cross paths have to be at Bonneville. Evo is headed CA, Bonneville, then to Sturgis! I’d love to see EVO get in on the Bronco aftermarket too!!

I wish I had that job. I wonder if they think of it as "work?"
this is all a part of testing it. hit every big off roading place to make sure it's built tough. and i'm sure they will make it to california or new mexico soon for baja style/higher speed off road testing.

Yup. These guys get to do this type of super fun stuff but there’s a lot of grind I’m sure too.
Yep. Ford is doing this to get data. Lots of it. I'm sure these guys are cranking reports at least daily.

I like the Bronco and I think Ford did a great job....but I’m the boomer that parks at the end of the parking lot avoiding a door ding, so I don’t think I would be rock climbing inches from a boulder...lol.

That being said, I enjoy learning about the lifestyle and tracking the test Broncos out West. I’m waiting for this to turn into something like deadheads going from concert to concert....ha.
