    Sweet pics. Was this in Vista too? First mod... removal of mud flaps. Second mod... clear tabs under the front license plate so it doesn't dig into your front bumper.
    Congrats on the truck!

    I posted about going up there last week when there was a lot of snow to drive through and use L4 + A-TRAC!

    This is the dirt road to the top of Palomar Mountain (5,000') off Hwy. 76 in Pauma Valley.

    In addition to what Dave said, heres some more history on the grade:
    http://www.valleycenter.com/grade1.htm

    There wasn't as much snow or mud in the road, but I got to use 4hi for the first time! Mainly because i pulled over to take a picture and when I started moving forward the right side of the vehicle bogged down into the muddy ditch, I probably could have backed out, but hey, hadn't used 4x4 yet, perfect opportunity!
    I'll probably be taking the flaps off today after I wash her, looks better, and i hear "may or may not" improve mileage :cool:

    I brought that up with my dealer, I need to find some free time to get to the dealer and have it installed, good eye! :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the comments guys! I'd love to go out with a group of you guys to a bit of a more challenging area!

    Google 'palomar observatory' and look at the maps. The entrance is on the 76 between Pala and Rincon casinos. Look for Nate Harrison Grade on the east side of the 76
