I couldn’t tell if they had the axels “flipped” or not. I did notice a couple of things that are good ideas. There are nerf bars or skid bars along the lower edges of the trailer in front of the axels. Also there is a skid plate under the spare tires at the rear.

The purpose of this was probably not a camping trip. It was to make the film. The photography is professional. If you notice the camera was always in an ideal position ahead of time to capture the most dramatic angle. You can bet they knew how deep the water was before they drove into it. It is a fun film anyway.

By the way I don’t believe this guy would be impressed by the Land Cruiser.

Oh yeah, I tried raising the disk (put the tires down) but it wasn't enough to get the tongue off the ground. The JD's rear tires weren't on the ground enough to get traction, down in that swale.

I did take my previous Rockwood TT up a rocky, rutted trail once, looking for a quiet campsiteoff the main highway a ways south of Telluride. When I realized how bad it was (and there was no turning around till I got to the top of a hill) I was sorry I'd done it... and I still had to go back down the hill the next day. It's a wonder I didn't tear something out. I told myself, never again!
