Re: Trip Report: Moab and White Rim Trail
No, no problems with the long tail. The problems here were the loose rock, steep drop, and the angled ledge. It's hard to see from the photos, but the right rear dropped off the ledge well before the left rear. When this happened, it threw the whole van to the right. I had decided before heading down that I had no chance of stopping until I was off the loose rock and back onto the road, so I let it roll out (1st gear 4-low). Once the left rear dropped off the ledge, everything settled back down and we continued down the hill.
Going up something like this, the weight and power just seem to chug away and grind through it. Going down a loose, steep, exposed, bumpy drop in a 10,000 lb van is a different story.
