Anyone been to Picketwire Canyon?

We're taking the driving tour of Picketwire Canyon this weekend. My question is, how rough is this road? Will we be OK in my wife's DD-a stock 01 Grand Cherokee with all season tires, or should I take my CJ-5?
I've been trying to find trail reports on this, but all I can find is about hiking the canyon.

Well, we took the trip yesterday and no problems. Mostly its just a dirt road through the desert.
If you go, make sure that your tires are in good shape! Lots of sharp rocks of the road-an F150 in our group had a flat. The forest service guide said that flats are common on that road..
