No on the 33's "The bastard Child" is only a trail rig and is my only vehicle gas is already bad enough with the mud tires! I ''ve tried three times to get into the trail beside the traps,each time was a winchfest to get out so I figured the fastest way to the beach was the traps themselves. next adventure will be the Grotto!!

It sees more action than a Saigon boom boom girl.

I know I took home 500 lbs of dirt when I tried to squeeze the deuce through
