Anybody run less than 10psi offroad without beadlocks?

Last trip out I ran 10 psi with great results but the tire looked like it could actually go a few pounds lower without any issues. Anybody ran around 6-8psi offroad with no beadlocks?

Imped ran 8psi the last time I was out wheeling with him.

I've ran as low as 8 before, but I usually run 10.

I wouldn't go much lower than 8, unless you like rotating the tire on the wheel and having to constantly rebalance them.

I don't wheel in sand (location), or lots of mud (not a fan)...so I always forget about that. I give my advice pertaining to rocks.

I go to 8-ish with a 13.5" wide tire on an 8" rim. I would up it if I had a 10" rim. Plus I usually run Pitbull Rockers and they hold a bead really well. I have some Krawlers right now and they seem to do fine too.

I run 7-9 on my jk moabs (7.5" wide), running 35x12.50 r17 Pitbull rocker radials. I wheel mud, hard pack, a little sand, and rocks. I haven't lost a bead yet.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.
