We drove our '07 to Crown King and within 5mi. of Crown King, saw a huge peach tree in the mtns and took a pic. It drove pretty nicely (26k on it now.) I wonder if the front springs are enough, since it seemed to nail the front bump stops on a few bumps. The shocks seem okay, but it did rattle sideways a bit on the heavily washboarded areas. I don't know that we absolutely needed to use 4hi but did so on the last leg of the way up, past CK, and on the early part of the way down. Worked fine. I patched a flat (nail in the LF tire) when we got back. I told my spouse that the internals of the tailgate that work themselves free will need the weld-fix (I saw on here) after that much touristy washboard driving.
