Report: the pull up the first part of the grand mesa is a hard one older trucks need to be well tuned for this part of the trip, but after reaching the top the pull levels out and becomes much easier the temp. drops so there is less of a chance of over heating. Once atop the veiws are breath taking the fishing fantastic and the camping great Sighned Jason Mead
