Next time I'll give it a shot.

My wife and I went through Steel Pass early 2010, it was our 4 wheeling maiden voyage in our new SMB. We went from the Eureka Dunes to the springs with almost no problem. On the third step I nicked the exhaust pipe and the rear bumper. Very minor damage. I don't think I would want take an EB the other way. I believe the rear end would drag a quite a bit.
I have pictures on my website: beckersminerals.com

That is very helpful info Woody, thanks. Going through from the dunes side would make for a fun route.

I also noticed your visit to speed week. That is another trip very high on my to-do list with the kids.
