On the previous episode of TFLoffroad, we compared the new 2021 Ford Bronco First Edition versus a stock Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and a Land Defender 110. As you may have seen the stock Defender lost two tires and needed to be rescued. We showed you that on another previous episode. This time, the new Bronco is tackling another difficult Rocky Mountain trail against a modified Defender with a lift and 35-inch Toyo Open Country M/T tires. The third vehicle is a new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 V8 that is modified and is riding on 39-inch BFGoodrich KM3 tires.
The trail is Wheeler Lake, and onX Offroad maps rates it as a 7 out of 10 difficulty trail. If you use code “TFL”, you can get a 20% discount for an annual membership of onX Offroad. When we go off-roading – we do not leave home without onX Offroad on our devices.
The Defender and the Wrangler you see in this comparison have approximately $15K-$20K worth of modifications that include a suspension lift, skid plates, tires, and more. The 2021 Ford Bronco Sasquatch is bone stock. It’s the way we purchased it at a dealership. This Bronco is riding on 35-inch Goodyear Territory AT tires.
What happens in this episode? Well, the Defender almost rolls on one of the obstacles near the beginning of the trail. Yikes! Check out the full episode below.
