Sorry, don't have GPS coordinates. It is a reasonable trip for you truck, if you like doing that kind of thing. There was only one short section of the trail that I thought was dangerously steep. That particular slope is downhill when going west to east.

The worst part of the trip is crossing the lava field east of the Slate Range that skirts around the dry lake bed as you wind towards Wingate Road / Goler Wash intersection. There is what seemed like 45 - 60 minutes of slow going over bunches and bunches of sharp rocks. The Slate Range portion itself is fun and easy. The steep slope will get your attention, but other than that it is reasonably easy. The lava field portion is totally bogus. Gotta take the good with the bad.
