I watched a Subaru compact station wagon go up once. I can't believe you can't get an XJ up and over. :tonka:

They made "trail" blazers in the 80's?

if you have momentum you can get up test hill.... just when you know you are about to crest let off or you will catch air....

my Humvee was really hard to get up test hill as it had no acceleration.... my current Hummer has no issues at all.... but the turbo diesel makes it a cake walk....

as previously said... right tire-pressure and speed and you are all set for the dunes...
