Here is the road condition report smoking joe wrote about
Your rig is built fine for exploring DV. We had a stockish sport follow us over Mengal Pass which is about the worse "rock crawling" to be done in the valley and he had no issues. It appears that the Parks Department as been working like mad out there to get the park ready as this is their busiest time of yr. Now if Inyo County would just get on the stick and get their roads fixed the world would be a much happier place, well at least those of us that like going out that way would be happier.
The one place you may have some issue with your rig is if you plan on going past the Eye of the Needle. There is a pretty gnarly waterfall out that way but it is past the mine and the eye and only needs to be done if you are going that way to Beatty.
If you don't have one, get an air pump for airing up and down your tires. You DO NOT want to run up and down these roads for 90-100 miles at a time with pavement pressures. Oh, have a means of carrying extra gas. Gas prices in the valley were from $4.80 for 89 octane to over $5 for the premium stuff at Christmas. Gas can be had in the valley at Stovepipe wells and Furnace Creek, both of which are located in the middle of the Park about 20 or so miles from one another. While you are up on the North End of the park doing the Race Track, Ubehebe Crater, Scotty's Castle, Scotty's house, Titus Canyon and the like the nearest gas and hotels are located in Beatty, NV. The hotels are cheap and they do have showers. Don't know if you are aware but the Lippencott Mine is just past the Racetrack. The mine is an interesting place to run around. The Lippencott Road will take you back to some natural hot springs. Don't get all worked up over these as there is Nothing and I mean NOTHING to see out there. The "views" could be life scarring. But, they are there if you interested and really want a "bath". But man you are really gonna have to want that bath. I will warn you that the U.S. Navy practices their low level and terrain mapping in this area so do not be too surprised if you are out on a lonely dirt road somewhere and get "thumped" by an F-18. The pilot is just saying "hello". This canyon is also a great place for star gazing as the nearest lights are about 60-80 miles away in any direction and blocked by some impressive mountains.
