LOL...Imagine my surprise when he sent me this video. I immediately asked why he didn't make a U-turn and follow those Bronco's!!! :)
Was he in a Jeep? I wouldn't try either.

Checked AllTrails. UT 279 deadends into a potash plant. Only trails listed past where they are headed, going south, is the Long Canyon/Gold Bar Rim trail or the Day Canyon trail. If I was out there, I'd be scouting. But alas, I'm stuck in Virginia.
That also takes you into CanyonLands up Shafer or to White Rim Trail? Or am I wrong I could be been a few summers since I was in Moab. I ran all over Shafer those switchbacks are fun lol

I looked closer at the map. It does go into Canyonlands.

Would be interesting to learn what repairs, if any, they underwent between Rubicon and Moab.
THIS is what has me so damn excited right now!

They were filmed dragging themselves over boulders on the Rubicon trail 2 days ago and then parked in front of a hotel. NOW, they are heading to Moab.

If they did sustain any damage it was absolutely minimal. These Bronco's are frikkin serious!

Heck the Corona Arch trailhead is on that road maybe they are stopping for a hike. Right across from that is the river nice sandy spot to picnic and take the scenery in! Never know! I’d def make the most of it out in that area! I bet it’s hot as balls though! Be cool they packed their tents got a permit to run the 100 miles or WR!

I hope they head east and then up north, a bit.

If I have to head to PA to see one in person, then I'll make whatever excuse I'll have to take a trip to see it

I had a great conversation with a GM Corvette engineer at the C8 intro at Corvette at Carlisle. He explained that GM had requirements for all new series test vehicles, hot, cold, etc. that involved say (I don't recall the exact numbers, but they involved big miles) 100 K, with another 50 K going into more specialized activity's, towing for trucks, track for 'vette.
It was jaw-dropping tough. and my guess is this little trio all has 6 figures of the basics on it now as they are pounding them with the specialized.
Later we will see shiny new per-production press cars, while these and other coma-hanging-off war horses will be sent off to pile up huge additional mundane miles to check squeaks and rattles.

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.
It all depends on if your going to leave yours stock or not, if your planning on adding sliders or metal bumpers, the works...so to speak. If your gonna give it the works with the traditional after market stuff, the only doors the will get dinged are the people of the other car...I love it when an overzealous person opens their door on my Jeep too wide and I hear a noise...Ooops should have been more careful there Karen..
