Spokes- its not from rausch, went wheeling and did a 75' winch pull and it sucked the juice outa the battery to the point the "check gauges" light was on and wouldn't show a charge. Tested it before starting with a multi meter and says 13v

Though sometimes "everyday use" involves mudding. I can't say I've never taken a "short cut" that involves a trail or rough dirt road.

Yeah I love doing that too lol. But most of the time when im working I cant take short cuts because of a trailer or tools etc. It gets dirty enough just from dirt roads, puddles, jobsites, or whatever I happen to be doing that day. I can imagine what it would look like without the bushwackers lol.

I tend to pass people through peoples yards. Theres a 4 way stop that after school everyone heads that direction and its a giant cluster f. I take the big field and pass the students and buses. All fun and games til a bus driver calls the school

When everytime your highschool field has donut marks the principle comes to you because you are always driving with mud all over the jeep. This includes other schools in the county. May or may not have actually been me

When you refer to a new scrape as a "fender kiss"
