Thanks for demystifying black bear for those that have never run it👍
Opposite for me, made it more mystifying. It’s a must do for me. Can’t wait to get up there and give it a shot.

In Wv this is just called.

“the road”.
Haha I’ve been on some of the backroads in the mid west and south and I don’t disagree. The real big difference is the fall should you screw it all up.

Bronco trail turn assist. On one hand it's cool to make it a 0 point turn, on the other hand that trail will be closed fairly quickly if they all use it.

I was in Telluride last weekend in my JT. Hiked up to Bridal Veil falls and took Last Dollar Road back to Ridgway on Sunday. The colors were amazing.

The trail assist is definitely a cool feature. There are times it would come in handy with our long wheelbase.

Haha 😂 yes, the very same road/pass. I believe there are Jeep’s on the album cover.

Tried out trail turn assist on some gravel. Dealer demo only car so couldn't do much else. Dragging that tire is definitely cool and cuts that turn radius down like crazy, but as you've said it's not free. The downside is it leaves a mark on the trail. Once or twice who cares, but if everyone did it... it doesn't tread lightly.

Which leaves the question, where is it really usable? Some people have said "just use it on sand" but bogging one tire on purpose just sounds like you're asking for trouble. It's more an answer in search of a question.
