Two of these shots are from Pucker Pass near Dead Horse Point. The Fuso climbed through the one difficult spot without trouble. The Chevy 4x4 got stuck. Ok, ok, the Fuso has much more aggressive tires so not a fair comparison. The limited slip diff on the Fuso performs very well, with the majority of the torque transferring to the non-slippping wheel. On the White Rim, I never needed 4x4 unless I needed 4x4-low range..
-I couldn't be happier with the 3pt design and Barry Mount performance. The Fuso is no Unimog in terms of offroad systems, suspension, etc, but I am impressed with the Fuso's frame flex and offroad ability - afterall this is a delivery truck with a 175K mile warrently
-The Fuso confortably drives at 65-70 on the freeway. The millage definitely is better closer to 60 though. I need to get a speedo check since changing tires, so I don't have an accurate MPG yet. Plus I only have 2700 miles on her, so I suspect it will have to break in before seeing the best performance.
-First gear is 5.175. About 4.75 with the larger tires. I believe 1st-low is about 9.75.
-I reshaped the front of the fender slightly for clearance
Now for the hard part - produce a camper light enough to handle this same trail.
