View Full Version : SD Mountain Goat!

Well its not my old Land Cruiser FJ40 but the 350 did me right today.

We took a trip up to Greenie Peak here in the Sangre de Cristo Mts. A mild four wheel drive trail in the summer but now has a few inches of snow and good water crossings.

On the way down we ended up on a jeep trail and there was no turning back. I was very impressed with the SD. 1st gear low range, and lots of scratches later we crawled up some pretty steep and icy hills, and went down some squirly grades. A few water crossings had water and ice chunks up to the doors.

Matters were extra tough since I had the wife, two youngins, and the mom-in-law on board. Nevertheless I would have preferred to be in my old FJ40 but it was a great trip!

I was too busy driving on some of the real steep stuff but will post pix of what I got when I get back to CA.
