so i went on a joy ride with the kids yesterday after our hike in the woods. i went to this fishing spot below an old spillway/dam and to get to below the dam, you have to go down a steep dirt road. Last time i went down and back up this hill was in 1997 or so. Anyhow, it has gotten way worse since then, back then, i had a 96 nissan pickud 2wd and made it up no problem. Anyhow, this time around, it was way more rutted and rocky. down was easy and i could feel the abs working. up was a pain and I slipped a bunch but made it nonetheless. I kept it in 2wd because at the top of the hill is a 90 degree turn that you gotta take and i was worried that if i was in 4wd, the friction/binding at the top/turn would maybe be a bad thing. anyhow, should i have gone into 4x4 even with the hard 90 degree turn right at the top of the hill???
