Wow...you couldn't buy a set of used tires for the current price! Looks like all it needs is a tranny upgrade to qualify as superb.

That bus has 3.54 gears due to the smaller 19.5 inch tires.

It would be around the same as my bus with 22.5 tires and 4.44 gears.

That bus may also only have 160 hp vs 190 for the one with 22.5 tires. Every bus with 19.5 inch tires I have seen in the last few months are lower power.

We call him "skunk ape" or "swamp ape" here.
I grew up right near Green Swamp.
