To be fair, a standard Fronty with A/T tyres is pretty capable, in all but the really wet stuff...
My first ever offroad do was attended in a 2.2 LWB A, and that only had A/T's on the back axle, road tyres on the front. It was relatively dry, and I beetled around the site quite merrily, only failing one particular climb as the front axle didn't quite have the traction needed to pull me over the top.

Stretch, Gazeddy, you'll do a lot of things in your motors, and as has been said, there's always going to be somebody around to pull you if needed, and ought not to be a shortage of passenger seats if you wish.

Ours is stock other than ATs on the front and MTs on the back, there will be a convoy of us poodling round the green routes i think, im hoping to persuade the missus to do most of the driving as it is her truck really, im hoping the bug will bite so that she lets me spend more money on my vitara as well as her Fronty. :D
Its the wifes until it breaks down.
