Driving On Rocks
General Knowledge

1. Know how much clearance you have and your vehicle's vulnerable spots. A vehicle with 6" of ground clearance is not going over an 8" rock.
2. Use low range 4WD, put transmission in low gear, and crawl. The ideal speed for rock crawling is 1 to 3 MPH.
3. Put a tire on the rock, never straddle a big rock. If you hear metal and granite scraping, don't panic. This is usually just a rock rubbing against the frame or skid plate.
4. On really bad areas, have someone spot for you, then you spot for them.
5. Air down your tires to between 10 -15 lbs. before you get to tough trails.
