    Took a few hours to drive the Durr Rd yesterday, between Ellensburg, WA and Selah, WA. If you’re looking for some decent technical climbs this is a great route. On any other day the views are fantastic as your on top of two ridges, Umtanum and Manastash, that lead you through the desert scrub. Our trip was hampered by wildfire smoke and haze.

    The OME BP51s were night and day compared to the stock TRD suspension. Outstanding control and never a jarring moment where your teeth feel like shattering.

    This road is also a main artery for dirt bike trails and other roads that take you into the back country.

    I have always wanted to drive up there in my Tundra but haven’t had the chance to make it over in a while. I used to drive around there all the time when I lived in Ellensberg during college. Back then all I had was a Subaru Forester. That’s an awesome area.

    It’s a 4ft by 6ft awning. Stores inside that cover along with 2 legs for top support and two to keep it up.
