Im thinking of doing black gap road this spring break and was wondering if my Chevy Trailblazer has enough clearance to make the "drop" in the black gap road. Its 2 WD and I have novice to intermediate off road driving skils.here is a shot of my Trailblazer at the start of Old Ore Road
Best case would be to travel with another vehicle so you at least have some support. Be sure to take a shovel and a tow strap; there's nothing worse than encountering an otherwise small problem and not having the tools to tackle it.
You shouldn't take that vehicle down that hill onto Black Gap. Likely you will not make it back up, and you sure will not make it more than 40 yards after you reach the bottom there.
Last time we went on Black Gap, we drove my wifes Land Rover Discovery II. Here's some pictures on Black Gap...
