Its going to be all on maintained gravel roads. An Acadia would be fine if its not muddy and you have a good set of tires. The washboard out there can be pretty brutal at times and passenger tires can be eaten up.
I changed out my 18" wheels for some 17"s. Running factory sized LT rated BFG A/Ts.

Also, it has Flowmaster exhaust, Rough Country leveling kit, and a round dial on my center console that gives me 4 modes of invincible. :thinking:

Oh, it also comes with a dog! 🐶

Sounds like you've got an upgrade for everything! Except the dog, I'd get rid of that at the earliest opportunity. ;)

I'm thinking if the weather's not terrible, I might camp at the Sun Tunnels or Lucin and head home via the Transcontinental Railroad on Sunday. Anyone interested in joining me for that?

If those are roads that are suitable for my van, and I can join for the other parts of the trip, I'd be up for that as well.

I don't mind looking a bit for some limits of my van. Clearly, 9400#, 10' tall and rather poor approach and departure angles are going to be fixed limitations that I'm well aware of. That said, even with those limitations, finding what it can do is of big interest.

The only challenges of the TCRR are the possibility of mud, and old railroad spikes reaching out to touch your tire.

Ok, if there is room still available, move me to the confirmed list please. I've decided to pass on that other event in Moab and I'll cancel my KOA reservation. I'll read through the first post to make sure I know where the meet-up spot is.
