Wet packed black dirt.... How nasty will it be?
 
The access road to where I need to go today is about 300m of black dirt that was packed with a D8 bulldozer on friday. Yesterday I could drive my 2500HD without even making a mark in the dirt really.

But last night it rained, a lot. I'm wondering how nasty it will be taking my jeep. I've never tried going through wet black dirt before.

Give her the onion. Should be no problem for a Jeep.

Well I gave er tits and tried it. Not very good results, about 20' is all I made it, there was standing water that made the ground like a soup. Although the 2500hd pulled me out with ease. Double the weight of my jeep and pulling from on the pavement though.

I think a vibrator pack would have helped a lot.
