You ever try any steep hills with your awd rig? Wanted to try some trails in Utah, but wanted some input on those who have tested their awd Express/ savana uphill.
now that you mention it, I think I have to say no. Nothing that resembles a hill climb anyway.

your van will climb.

I have been surprised at how the hill climbs go, moon dust and ruts or snowy messed up track to a dead end log landing. that is with highway wranglers. it has been said the awd activation is hard to discern.
deactivating the stabilitrak is good prior to hitting the scariest climbs.
Wheelin' is often mostly tire placement and momentum mgmt.

I goose it when it looks like I am somewhere I'd get stuck or really high centered. Riding the ridges through puddles, ice puddles, the moon dust ruts etc.
