At least you're using those tow hooks as they are intended! Did you slip off the trail, or did it just get too extreme? By the way, I grew up down in that neck of the woods and still have family in AZ. Where were you when this happened, just curious?

This was my first time using my hooks and hand wench , knowing me... Not the last.My skid plates look used , so does the lower black plastic molding on the doors and fenders some pretty good gouges there too.
Thats why I got the Trailhawk .... For Trails
So what are your thoughts on how it performed? Better or worse than you had hoped?

Did better than I thought it would.

I took my TH on Box Canyon trail near Florence AZ . The trail is rated a moderate 2.5 . We made it through the box canyon just fine with its boulder and stepped obstacles.When you leave that part of the trail you start a climb over a mountain pass.At about mile 16 it really starts to get steep.So you have to get some momentum going to make these long climbs , which can be dangerous on ridgeline trails that steep. The trail hawk does not have the engine or torquing power to crawl up at a safe speed while keeping your eyes on the trail .At mile 17.5 it was getting too dangerous so I turn back. For sustained climbing trail I would stay on an easy 2.0
For short climbs and obstacles a moderate 2.5 sometimes a 3.0 with very carefull placement .
