I used my 08 Outlander AWD for gravel logging roads, and muddy logging roads, while hunting. It performed surprisingly well with the stock tires. If you can find more of a all terrain type tread tire, that would help, but good luck. Low profile 18" all terrain tires don't exist. Low ground clearance is the only concern, as I had to retrieve a few splash guards that were torn off from the brush/ruts. The 2.4 L performed quite well in all driving conditions. I know it's not designed for that type of driving, but I don't have a truck:) Good thing I didn't have to try to get the gas cap off:D
I have been in Russia with my Outlander GT. I drove more than 10000 miles on horrendous terrain: snow, gravel, mud, ice, pot holes, and water and my Outlander is still going. Car was loaded with a weight equivalente to 7-persons. I am very impressed.
Sounds like fun - love to see some pics!
I will do it after downloaded the chip from my camera. I have few photos. The weather was severe (-10 degree centigrade, windy, snowing, and car/trucks passing by at high speed ) . I will do my best.
here is the photo. Going to Saint Petersburg
Looks like a great road trip, thanks!

batman47 - how can you be on a perpetual driving vacation pert-near all of the time, man? Incredibly cool for you and the way your Mitsubishi Outlander is handling the long distances strengthens my already solid view of Mitsubishi rigs. Our '08 Lancer GTS just passed 122,000 miles. She's going in on Tuesday for tires and alignment. No problems with the car whatsoever 7 years after buying it.
