I know im not complaining just touching on if a young guy was reading this post and being utterly lost with the physics and the complexity of the post now that's all.

Well, the reason we explain it in depth is that there is always a couple of guys who will brag about running 6-8 psi with no problem. And,often they are just relating their experiences and really believe that a "young guy" seeking advice will be just fine at 8 psi. But, since every muddy hill is a little different, it makes sense for "young guys" to know that 8 psi may leave them with their Johnson in their hand and their rig stranded off camber on a sand hill where it cannot be jacked up or safely moved.

So, I urge the explanation of the physics involved so that each guy can make an intelligent decision for himself.

For my part, I run Internal tube type beadlocks that permit me to run at zero psi. And, that is because I don't see myself re-beading a 37" Krawler in a mud bog. But, if I was just running around on some friendly rocks out West, I would not have spent the money.
