That was far from abuse.

What are you some old grump lol My trip to death valley and this is no where near abuse. If you don't want to see these trucks offroading I'd suggest you stay out of the OFFROADING section!

What is abuse? What exactly do you suppose a 4wd truck is supposed to be used for?

Heck, I have probably taken 2WD vehicles through worse conditions. You would have been appalled with the time I drove my 1985 2WD S-10 Blazer through that creek at a fast enough speed to avoid getting stuck.

My biggest concern with the drive was how deep the water seemed to get. One of the things that most people failed to understand with offroad driving is that prior to driving over many areas of a course, you have to get out and survey it to determine if there are any issues to worry about.

Don't go look at any of the offroad magazines I get everytime I purchase a part for my Wrangler...

Heck, my strongest comment to this trail ride: How the heck did you manage to keep a white truck so clean?

If you post a lot of pics it definitely is beneficial to use a hosting site and then post them instead of the small amount you can have per profile here.
Imageshack, imgur or photobucket, anything like that.


Looks like you had some fun! I really want to try some easy trails or anything off an actual road but I have no idea about anything around NH/MA

This is the only thing I miss about California. I used to ride my motorcycles all over Mendocino National Forest. I grew up in Corning (120 Miles north of Sacramento).
