Expect lots of scratches and potential body damage. Cut sidewalls and bent rims are possible as well.

JK!!! This is a very easy run. I can think of only 4 places you'll need 4lo and 3 of them are just to help you descend slower. BTW, my wife and the dogs are going on this run.

No, it's actually quite easy. I could probably get through in 2wd except for one loose uphill. Go to Youtube and look up the following: Heart Attack Hill, The Squeeze, Oriflame Canyon. Disregard the Jeep roll on Heart Attack. That was just stupidity all the way around.

I think you'll get half way through. Then we'll have to rename it "The Bump" as we drive over the carcass of an abandoned Ford. Come to think of it, that's how most Ford's end up anyway

You could leave your truck at my place in Ramona if needed. Seems like a lot of work to tow it since it's so close to SD though.

Thats no way to talk about a Ford. Although probably a great way to get out of the payment.
