This road was the reason we went the way we did with a shuttle truck.
The road to the crystal kicked the shit out of our astro van, and it was then I vowed to get a better rig.
We bought that truck you saw. and I will never take it to the crystal or to obj.
Our new approach is to take a 4wheeler with us for roads like that.
When we go up to crystal this year, the truck will stay parked at a buddys in marble and we will ride in on utvs and dirtbikes.
1. It is hard to drive 200 road miles and then subject your truck to a rough 4x4 road, if you hook a brake line or bust a drive shaft you will not be going home that night
2. We came to terms with; yes, we want to huck our stuff, but we need to get home, and it was the crystal that put it all in perspective.
3. use truck to get there, then use quad or dirtbike to get back there.
Stoked for you on your new truck!!!! take the scooter and lets go to gore this weekend and break it in, no pun intended!!
