Yes it is, I was going to go wheeling next month but I was told that there's no more room. So I may go to the Badlands for its first trip for something to do.

it has to get about double the mileage the hummer got, especially towing with a slipping trans.

So the extra dollar a gallon at the pump might not be that bad......
