Sand boarding. This is, apparently, still a thing people think is cool and outdoorsy in almost 2019? To anyone who’s never tried sandboarding, its not popular for a reason. Does the truck come with a case of surge and a couple of sweet burned mix CD’s?

This is my Grandma, she wanted me to come with her to pick out her brand new TJ. That was a fun car. We put it into limp mode with a CEL light on with 500 miles on the ODO going through mud puddles in Moab. it was idling at 2500 rpm and we had to use the brakes to slow down through town.

Say you’re all dressed up and on your way to your favorite tunnel for your hip tunnel party that all your friends are into now. Oh no! Someone has thoughtlessly placed ramps at high angles at the entrance. We’ve all been there am I right? Thankfully you’re driving the 2020 Range Rover Evoque which handily dispatches…
