I meant to qualify that by saying what COULD be done, and not necessarily what Bronco has. On paper, Bronco has impressive numbers with more wheel travel than a Wrangler, a better RTI score, and according to Bob S a better VCI. Any vehicle is only as strong as it’s parts though, and typically solid axles are more durable...but it depends on design and quality of parts. Jeep has been lacking in the parts department of late, and Ford has been having quality issues so perhaps it’s a dead heat....with the emphasis on “dead”. Lol.While that is true, that's not what Ford did. They used the same basic coil-over shock design used by most other 4x4 trucks, with certain modifications.
So the limiting factors are still differential clearance and the angles that the CV joints have to cycle through when the suspension compresses and unloads.
These two issues do not affect the articulation of a live axle, the limit is how much the driveshaft double cardan joints can articulate.
Personally, I like the idea of an IFS. It’s a more comfortable ride, especially on my commute over the pothole covered roads into Philly. My Liberty was much more comfortable to drive than my TJ, though the longer wheelbase helped too. But we all know about the crappy IFS used in Liberty....
