Over 350,000 miles and just completed an epic offroad day trip without an issue. The tach was pegged in the red for a good 50% of the drive, in case you thought this was just a lazy Sunday cruise. Brief trip report below, I brought a 4Runner and a Samurai with me this time.
Would you rather get stuck offroading as daylight fades—miles from any road—or attempt an impossible recovery in the middle of a snowstorm? if you chose “both” then oh boy do I have a story for you. Gather round, and in the spirit of dumb ideas far and wide, “hold my beer”. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.
