Yup that was us, 2 mogs, The deuce, and a few smaller trucks. We stayed on the main trail, and kept things simple.
Some of the switch backs were a tough go for me, the front axle kept locking up . Sending tremendous feed back to the steering wheel. Without power steering and these big tires, if your slack it will twizzler your arm without warning....I was in bed by 8 the days I was driving. You do get used to it however.
As for wheeling in general the truck is not ideal, it`s takes effort to get this thing to do what it`s told. That being said, whipsaw main trail presented little challenge for the truck, having the duel drive axles in the rear really helps in the traction departmnt. I don`t think I spun a tire on the whole trail. I could have done the trail with 6000+ pounds in the bed.
It`s heavy, slow, and uncomfortable....but I kind of enjoy it.
school of hard knocks right.
