Once 'stoner was over, the second van barely slowed down and he made it up. He used all 9000+ lbs of his monster, stuck it in 4lo, lock out the front and rear and just let that big ole diesel idle as it carried him up and over. It was impressive to see, for sure.
Nice Death Valley trip report over on Expedition Portal with three Raptors. Apparently the couple SMB's they came across made a particular dry waterfall look easy. Not so much for the Raptors.
Was he in 4wd? The rears keep spinning and the front - nothing.
Sometimes, momentum is your friend.

Man, I'd never think those trucks would have that problem. Maybe too light. I did that pass with CellularSteve and CalClimber and it was very similar to that but never had any problems. None of us had problems. I understand trails can change, but that looked easy. Our trip
