I would like to join your drive. I have a 2016 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD. I have front and back recovery points, radio, flag, and recovery gear (non kinetic rope). I have done a newbie drive last weekend and it was awesome. I have also ventured into the desert with friends a few times before. I have noticed that I have a limited approach angle and struggle with steep, straight down declines. (See attached image).
Will I be fine during your drive. I am willing to take alternative routes to allow others the technical challenge.
