At the upper trailhead I saw several Wranglers, a 4runner TRD, a Taco TRD, a Tundra TRD, and a stock F150.

I parked my Tahoe Z71 about a quarter mile above the bathroom. After walking the trail and seeing other full size trucks at the very top, I'm confident Chevy Z71's could make it to the top also.

In conclusion, the TH above the bathroom is definitely a 4/6 on difficulty... but, I don't think short wheel base is 100% necessary to get to the top (currently). Full size 4*4 trucks with decent tires can definitely do it. But, it will be bumpy! Probably want skid plates if you attempt in a full size SUV/Truck.

P.S. Don't attempt in a Honda Civic. Saw a Honda Civic quite a bit above the 2WD parking area and it was stuck... also looked like he ripped something out of his undercarriage. Lol.
