I have taken my pickup over Echo several times. In fact, Echo is my favorite trail in the park because it offers lots of Death Valley history, interesting geological features, spectacular viewpoints, and the most difficult terrain in the park.
Once over the dryfall, the road is pretty simple out to Nevada. The dryfall you mention is easy to handle, but you should utilize a spotter for safety purposes. The rest of the way is easy except for one small obstacle right around the Nevada line, however it can be done easily in 2hi.
Once you drop down the fan, you will end up in Amargosa Valley. From there, continue on through the interesting valley, and end you will eventually hook up with the highway.
