Reminds me of the lessons in driving I got from my mom *who would drive a Cadillac on the dirt road up Trabuco Canyon to Holy Jim* ...

At night the headlights will show the biggest rocks, and the ruts will be dark.

Drive left and right as necessary to put at least one of the wheels on the ridge between the ruts. Left or right depends which side the big rocks are ahead. You want to avoid the trouble.
