So naturally after registering and insuring the first thing i did was take her to the local spots and see what she could do. (solo first time everyone was at work)

You could say so, but im barely ever home and when i am i wheel it. I dont have to commute or anything so lift and tire size is ok with me. I have taken trips in it and she handles pretty good. When i bring it up to school soon I will prolly drive every weekend but not far.
