Thanks for the link, I will save and use it this winter.

We have traveled the I-17 from Flagstaff to Phoenix dozens of times in our lives.
We have family in the Verde Valley below the Rim.
I would suggest that you pick a weekday (Mon.-Thur.)to travel from Flagstaff to Phx. because the weekenders turn the I-17 into a raceway on their Sunday return trip into the Valley (Phx.)
Also, the US-60 runs through the Salt River Canyon from Showlow (south of Holbrook) to Globe and is a beautiful drive, but, going either north or south you still have to negotiate the many switchbacks in order to cross the Salt River bridge at the bottom.

I travel these roads often with my 5'er with no troubles.
I'd check the weather, (including the previous 24-36 hours).
If clear, take the roads thru Holbrook, Heber, and Payson (377-277-260-87) and you will be fine.
The I-40 to I-17 route is a safe alternate in case of bad weather, but is much longer, and no fun on a Sunday afternoon/evening due to returning weekenders.
