Story time,
I decided to take my girl My bro and his girl wheeling
It went fine until I got to the rock ledge that had been covered in mud, so I tried the usual just bump it.

Instead of hopping up it slid me off to the side so I readjusted and tried it again

doing this in the process

I had all 4 33s smoking like ***** I am unlocked.
