    Depends if we get snow before then. If there is a lot of snow it will suck. Done it in the past and regreted it the whole way home

    As stated, just depends on the amount of snow and how well packed the trail is.
    I have ran the 6x6 in the spring when the river is trampled and temps just above freezing hauling freight and it was great.
    If it snows (dumps) while you are there though it could be a "stuckfest" trying to get it home.....just a thought.

    Ya I know if it snow it will suck plan on just going up for the day and then coming back just to see if I can do it will be a long trip but could be alot of fun. If snow alot this week there is no way Im going but if it stays like it is now I would think it shouldnt be bad

    Greythorn,
    When the river gets packed down by spring, it's like a 4 or 5 lane paved hwy on the Big Su. Clearance would not be an issue.
    I've seen people driving trucks hauling freight.
