Thread: First time Offroading my new G550

  1. #51
    Time to get this thread back on topic! I'm very happy with how when my G550 performs offroad. I had no issues last weekend but the Toyota that was with me got stuck in a water/mud hole and took on about 4" of water in the cab.

    Oh man, he's going to need to pull that carpet up and let it dry on the underside or else it's going to really stink.
