If you ever want to see what a knowledgeable driver can do with a 2WD vehicle, spend some time on the Navajo Reservation after a rain. The locals will motor on around your stuck 4WD in their beater-mobile AMC Pacers and 2WD pickups.

I wanna see a picture of a Sedan at ET1, JC4, or Roy's Peak....... Any Takers? I won't hold my breath.
Ok Let Me Be Clearer Here ....show me a honda civic like car sitting at elephant tusk not Ernst. A van at Ernst is not impressive.
There is no doubt 4wd isn't necessarily required. But there is no way in hell you can convince me a car that's 4 inches off the ground is going over Old Ore, Black Gap, River Road or Juniper Canyon.
(although there have been years that the ET camp site was probably approachable from the west).
And even in good circumstances taking a little car like I did on that road should be done only with a good road report and considerable caution. If you get stuck you're really stuck!
in fact, i'll give a hundred bucks to the person who can provide an undoctored picture of a HONDA CIVIC with factory options only or an El Camino parked at EL-1 (that would be Elephant Tusk campsite on Black Gap road)....what do you say? Sounds like an easy 100 bucks, yes? Proove to me beyond all doubt that you're not 'FOS.'There's a lotta talk with nothing to back it up it seems.
