If you are talking about the Hot Springs Historical District, the answer is that you might have too much truck! 

The road is well-maintained and heavily used.  I'd say that any family car can make this trip.  I have done it without any concern in my wife's sedan.

There are a couple of tight places - that is why I say your big truck might be too much (but I'm exaggerating - you'll do fine).
----------
What a super romantic you are!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Starting this way, are you sure you will be able to keep upping your romantic game year after year?  Maybe you should propose at a lesser spot.
----------
Head's up - they mean it when they say no drinking at the Hot Springs.  I have seen rangers ticketing open containers here.
----------
Bright idea: my wife's very most favorite spot to stargaze at the Bend is on the front porch of the old hotel/house up hill from the parking area at the Hot Springs.  BYO chairs.
Leave "quit" at the car.  Embrace the trail as your friend.  Expect to enjoy yourself, and to be amazed.

There is one tight squeeze, if I recall.
