I don't normally post, but I thought I'd throw this out because of the good group that tend to use this site. I just returned from Moab, had to take the Xterra because the wife made me compromise on comfort. So the Jeep was home in the garage.
I was in Canyonlands on the White Rim Road and decided to take Lathrop Canyon to the river for lunch. On the way down I saw the trail and decided to walk it for a ways just as a recon. I saw a group coming up the trail and asked them what it was like. They were running moderately modified vehicles, but the smallest tires looked to be 35's. I got replies that surprised me. "Don't take you rig down there it won't make it back up," and "walk it, you'll find it more enjoyable." Well I walked a little further and saw the trail wasn't that bad. I was able to get the Xterra down and up again with little problem.
My question is this... has the 4x4 world been modified so much that there are no drivers who can capably drive a stock vehicle? Thought I'd throw that out to ya'll since because most here seem grounded in reality.
Anyways had a great time. Later
