I’m lovin’ it.
Went to Rausch Creek with some friends. I drove the Pajero, Rob drove my ‘96/’97 Grand Cherokee, Nick brought his quite cool XJ (by far the most appropriate vehicle of the three for this kind of driving).
I’ve been to Rausch Creek before but only as a passenger - same for Rob. Nick has been many times so he led.
We stuck mostly to green trails and one or two blues since we had to drive these 2 hours home afterwards. Also either the GC or the Pajero have to be daily drivers afterwards.
In 4 Lo the Pajero chugged along without any issues and I barely needed to touch the clutch pedal. There were a few underbody scrapes and bumps and one point where a high rock hitting the rear diff stopped me hard, but otherwise the narrow track combined with 31" tires and moderate ground clearance meant I could go anywhere the XJ could go.
All three of us had a great time overall.
