Talking PLEASE! don't bite my head off!

well........ my girlfriend's dad wants to do "light" wheeling. so i told him to get a grand cherokee and we could go to sliver lake, but i was thinking that since he has a 08 Cadillac Escalade EXT that he could take that for like a weekend trip and i could be behind him watching him carefully. it has AWD and regular recovery points too, although he doesn't have anything more than stock street tires. what does anybody think?

and i did read over this and realized how stupid this question is. thanks for your Patience

he should be fine for the most part ive never been to silver lake so couldnt tell ya what its like but i knwo plenty of bone stock vehicles that wheel and it sure owuld be enjoyable to watch a escalade do some things. ground clearance and approach angle are proabbly going to be horrible though so watch out for that stuff.... im bored tonight can u tell

i would think it would do fine just like half the other stuff up there thats stock. it might look a little goofy out there. and dont air down to far, since it doesn't have much of a sidewall

they come with huge 22" rims stock, I was curious one day at work and I measured the tire it was a little more than 35" tall.

All I would say is those stock wheels and tires are retarded heavy and would suck in the sand, just borrow some wheels and tires off of any other 6 lug chevy and you would be better off.
