Cant wait to see that thing in action. Completely different then a rzr/canam. Looks like it would be a wild machine.

The plans really to make it to raymond. Going to take a while and make new trails, find new places, bullshit. It will take a little while with as many people thats going and trying new stuff. Raymond to Alden is around 20 miles of river? thats down the trails anyways.

10 bolts bring teh suck. Why would you want to run anything bigger than a 27x8.50 with a 10 bolt offroad. JK.
