Nice Omar Little drop
Great video, as usual.
The Defender's 20" wheels see two flat tires within about 50 yards. Gets left for dead. Womp womp.
The Bronco is noticeably bigger than the Wrangler, can't choose its lines as carefully due to its size, and doesn't articulate as well.
The 4xe puts in a strong showing by running battery only for 3.1 miles of very gnarly trail. With 35s on the Wrangler, it clearly would have been the walk-away winner. The Bronco seems like a great competitor, but...
MEGA SPOILER ALERT! Tommy drops an F-bomb.
IMHO 100% stock the Bronco is the winner. The factory 35's on the Bronco equaled the Wrangler on this rocky slow trail. They didn't show how the Bronco is far more capable on higher speed trails.Enjoyed that video a lot. The Bronco is clearly a contender with the Jeep which is great.
My JLURD is still on order, but I’ll be new to off roading (with a Jeep). I’ve took my super duty wheeling in Southern California when I lived in California but it had a 12” lift and 38s. I mostly race Hare scrambles and enduros here in N.C. so I’m not really new to the concept of roading but I mainly race dirt bikes so it a whole different world.Great video! The Jeep and Bronco did great. I mostly off-road in Uwharrie here in NC and I would be worried about having a wider vehicle. Even my JLU has cut it very close many times.
Also, someone should make Bronco trailing arm protection plates stat! It seems they hang pretty low.
Who off-roads trails at high speeds? Unless you want to destroy the trail that is pointless. Guess you mean like sand/dirt tracks? Even at those the 4xE would clearly win as it is simply faster. The Bronco is a competitor but definitely doesn't unseat the Wrangler IMO. And in 12 months when the Recon package is released, the Bronco loses all advantages it currently has. I like the Bronco for what it is, a roomy off-roader with creature comforts but it certainly didn't move a bar in off-road work. It does provide a 'boxier' feel that you would find in a F-series truck and the comfortability of IFS on the street which is 100% a win over a Wrangler. That said, off-road..again..didn't move any bars (let's not forget what happened to the rear control arm when it found a rock even with 35s)IMHO 100% stock the Bronco is the winner. The factory 35's on the Bronco equaled the Wrangler on this rocky slow trail. They didn't show how the Bronco is far more capable on higher speed trails.
Jeep Mohave trim (is that available in the JL yet?) does better than the Bronco on such activitiesUntil it’s time to go through some whoops or catch some air… then Bronco dominates. Is wrangler going to be better in the rocks? Absolutely. But Bronco is WAY better in the desert running stuff. It’s all trade offs.
"Catching air" is a great way to break shit off-road.Until it’s time to go through some whoops or catch some air… then Bronco dominates. Is wrangler going to be better in the rocks? Absolutely. But Bronco is WAY better in the desert running stuff. It’s all trade offs.
It's Fauci math.It’s odd that it was only showing 8 miles of range at the start of the trail? Was it only partially charged to start? I could see losing 50% of the range in low range, but 85%? Something doesn’t add up. The only thing the bronco did better was having 35’s and comfier seats. How Ford claims more articulation is beyond me.
I guess you've never been to the great expanses of the SouthWest. There are miles and miles of wash boards dirt/gravel roads/trails, where I'd take the Broncos suspension any day.Who off-roads trails at high speeds?
