Overall, about as expected from the description. However, the described "rough section at the start of the road" seemed to be non-existent, so use the first creek crossing at 1.7 miles as a gauge as to whether or not you can make it the rest of the way. Both creek crossings were running low.

There were a few switchbacks that I had to make some tight 2 or 3 point turns in an F-150, and scraped my running boards twice, but it was pretty easy other than that. A couple other folks in our party mentioned that the road was a lot worse than they remember from 3 or 4 years ago, leading me to believe the road's condition is deteriorating. Our party had a stock Chevy Colorado, and two leveled F-150s, and everyone made it to the upper TH without a problem. A good driver can make it all the way in a stock SUV with good clearance. Friendly reminder to park head-in as the lot fills up quickly, and there's not much room.
