I did this road in June, 2010 in a Tour Coach, we counted 35 cars that travelled in the opposite direction.
It was a real experience, the wheels of the coach hung over the edge on some bends.
I heard one woman say that she had never payed so much money to be so terrified.
I would do it again.

We drove the 'Top of the World' road from Dawson City to the border and the 'Taylor Highway' from the border to Teslin Jct. on June 16, 2007.
The scenery on both roads was spectacular.
Even though most of the road was gravel, we had no problem with our Ford Freestar mini-van.
Our only regrets was not spending more time in Dawson City in the Yukon and in Chicken, Alaska.
The road is crooked with no guard rails, so we had to drive slow.
But if we wanted to drive 70+ miles per hour we would have stayed in the Dakotas and Montana.
We had no problems with customs going into Alaska.
We gave the custpoms imspector our passports when he asked for our identification, honestly answered his questions and did not volunteer any information.
I think we were through customs in less than three minutes.
The only slight problem was lack of gas stations.
Rather than pay $3.60 per gallon in Chicken, I decided to go on to Tok before filling up.
We had about two gallons to spare, but Arlene was getting pretty nervous.
Traffic was very light. More semi-trucks with double trailers than cars.

Eagle and Chicken are quaint stops.
Very isolated dirt road. Gold rush era flavor. The real Alaska bush.
The best cup of coffee and piece of cherry pie I ever ate - cooked on a wood burning stove at Chicken $12.
Route covers much of the 1000 mile Yukon Quest - sled dog race each winter.
Dawson, Yucon Territory is a must.
Abandoned cars and motorcycles along the way.
Travelled from Canada to Alaska.
The border patrol at Boundry, Alaska USA broke down all gear bags and riderwear??
