No pics of the tough sections of trail, but it handled it pretty well. Only knocked a skid plate once, and now I’ve got a leaky tire, not from a sharp rock, but from a screw. I’m happy that my $1200 beater did the same stuff that the brand new Wrangler and 4Runner did, but I couldn’t help thinking how smooth, quiet, and relaxing their drives to and from the trails were compared to mine....
I also can’t believe how well the 4Runner did with all seasons, not all terrains.
I also understand why so many 4x4s, especially in BC, are auto. The steep and technical trails we were on exhausted me, but it was a walk in the park for my friends in the JL and 4Runner. I also found myself wanting a bit more wheelbase and a bit wider track.
Next time will either be with bigger, better tires, or in something newer, fuel injected, smoother, and quieter
