My GV...and Zookin\' pre-run
Went up to Wildweasel's for Day 2 of Fab Fest. We did a "pre-run" for the upcoming Zookin' outting.
Well, I just wanted to share another trail experience in my GV. I HAD A BLAST!!! The GV is still amazing me. It seems like another grocery getter on the outside, but trust me, they really hold their own on the trail. With the exception of several frame rail slides, she came out with nary a scratch. An blown bead was all I really suffered. A ratchet strap and some on-board air and the bead was reseated and we're were forward moving (and extra big, BIG thanx to Wildweasel)
The V6 power and the variable torque of the auto tranny go a long way. While I'm still open/open diff, the wheel spin is minimal maily due to the fantastic flex the rear end affords me. There were many times I though I wasn't going to be able to make something, but instead she crawled right thru it. I had to take only one go around going in, but made it back without going around anything.
I want to thank Wildweasel, Alan, "Mad" Mxnhid, Jeepn and WSB for being patient and helping out. Hopefully you'll chime in on your own personal experiences, and maybe post a couple pics!
I also want to say that if anyone is considering buying a GV, go for it. You won't be disappointed.
