Beast! Looking into a lift myself but want to let the market develop itself a little more first. Maybe in a year or so.

honestly that was really impressive. The Badlands seemed to hang right in there. That's a bit above my intentions, but good to know it's capable with really very little modifications.

More options are continually being developed -- everybody wants *in* on the Bronco Sport! There will be failures, and some will rise above, so waiting is not a bad strategy. I'm a little wary of the "level lift" that barely lifts the back end, as you need full articulation back there as well, even thought no steering is involved. Some lift the rear only 3/4" and still they're mounting big tires all around, I worry about that. I'm thinking a 1" lift (someday, maybe) and either 245/65-17's or 245/70-17 -- that's it. It can get a little ridiculous far beyond that for this little SUV -- IMHO.

I never bought in on the level lift fixation. If I lift it will be for ground clearance exclusively and won't "short" myself at the rear when loaded or towing. An inch of body lift and a half inch of tire lift would do me fine and should be everyday drive-able with minimal bad habits.
There's this one rocky stream I need to cross ;) It's a non event in my Raptor but will sell that some day.

Love how genuinely enthusiastic Vaughn and Eric are about the BS and pushing capability outside of what everyone is expecting out of it. I think the challenge of pushing something less capable through more difficult terrain is more fun than just taking the most capable, tricked out off roader to cruise through trails. At the end of the day it's all about having fun in what you have!

I feel this was the first good video that actually showed what the BL can do.
When it waved, lifted the right front I would have feared a roll over and steered left but that driver had no issue.
Great video.

A friend forwarded me this link and it sealed my desire to get one of these. I’d like to do a small net lift like this and the a tune. I don’t want to diminish the ride quality too much after ditching my Jeep for the FE because the wandering ride was awful—there were other reasons too.

I knew these small SUVs would be capable but not quite like this.
