    Spent a few days exploring a small part of the Eastern side of the Bighorn mountains and they are spectacular. Here are a few pictures I was able to capture. I went down several forest service roads ranging from easy gravel to very steep rocky trails requiring 4LO. The truck performed amazingly well even on worn out stock tires.

    Was there any specific trail? Or did you Google map a trail of your own making?

    I google mapped most of it. Saw some videos on youtube and pieced together the location. The upper bunch where forest access roads off of highway 16 and school house park. The lower set were forest access roads off of Red Grade road about halfway between highways 16 and 18. Look for the town of Big Horn. Its leading west from there. Red Grade road going up the mountain was crazy steep, 4x4 with traction control off steep. What route did you follow in Utah, I'm dying to do that in the next year or two.

    No specific route as once you get into Utah you pretty much pick and choose what you want to see and where.
    The trails (Canyonlands and Capitol Reef) are "right out of the box" in which the trails are already there and aside from it getting dark (which it does, earlier than you'd think), you can't miss the route.
    I can say that for the most part they are wide enough that you won't get any body damage, but you will get some pinstripes from tree branches in a couple of places.
    You don't need any wild lift kit, I've got a stock TRD Pro, and it never came even close to max articulation BUT (in Canyonlands) some rock rails will be useful and mine got a little paint scraped off them.
    As far as any other trails (the maze comes to mind), I'd do a little research from other drivers/forums to see if the truck is slim enough as width might be an issue.
    Any thoughts on Black Bear pass?
