12 psi is pretty low for a non bead locked tire. Are you sure your gauge reads correctly? If you have air supply, you could try a little lower, if you pop a bead, you went too low

I aired down one tire with my guage to 12psi and then a friend let me borrow their tire deflators set to 15psi so i put them on all four tires. The one I did myself didn't release any air. So I thought I was at 12psi according to my gauge. I then deflator each tire to 12psi after the tire deflators were done.

I will pay more attention and double check with another gauge next time for sure.

Jermey,

Get an Currie or ARB deflator they seem to work the quickest and are pretty accurate. I think you know a guy you can get one from. LOL!

Nice pics man, I love that little rock garden. Try Purgatory yet? And yeah, air those things down to 8 and break them in good. The sidewall should bulge quite a bit more after that.

So, you gonna be making it to Attica any time in June?

G, I am going to get my staun tire deflators and have them preset to 8psi. I have the ARB defator/gauge but its no fun waiting on each tire to get it right. I want to just hook it up and walk to the next one

Okay sounds like I need less pressure.

Dude, we did everything there. Spent the better of a full two days just wheeling the entire place. It was fun. I had a couple issues making up a few things, like the second steep wall near the creek. I was thinking it was tire pressure so I will try some lower air pressure and see what happens.

I would love to come out with you guys but we have a trip in Drummond in Juen and I have a wedding to attend I think the same weekend as you guys are going.

Should be making another trip out there in the fall though. Are you guys going anytime after June?

Need some help/advice

I recently starting getting a shimmy in my steering wheel at around 50mph and I thought it is related to my wheels out of balance again. I decided to first to check and see if all the bolts are tight since it started sometime after off roading. Well, I got everything all tightened up (nothing was really loose) and still had the shimmy.

Figuring its the tires I swapped front to rear and rear to front. I still had the shimmy. I did a steering check with a helper and looked for any abnormal movement and nothing seemed to be out of wack.

Then took my channel locks and clamped each tie rod end to see if there is any movement. I noticed that the draglink tie rod end on the steering knuckle had twice as much up and down movement than any of the other ends. I am not sure if this is my cause of shimmy or is that up and down movement normal. I can made a small video if that helps.

Update, I have really figured out my shimmy issue yet. I came across another problem involving a crack Evap line so I had to fix that. I also got a Winch which I am really excited to use. I'll post up some pictures of it and a review of it.

Double check your wheel weights again. I was having issue with mine tossing a weight here and there too. Causing a shimmy/shake (not DW). A rebalance helped each time.

Did the rebalance on the DS get rid of the vibes? I have all new stuff to rebuild my front shaft and hoping that fixes mine.

Yeah, I tried swapping wheels front and back to see if it would get rid of my shakes and it didn't. I got the DS back and there seems to be a slight vibe I get at around 45MPH but nothing else notable at higher speeds. I have a plan of action I think.
1. Make sure everything is tight...again
2. Perhaps play the pinion game in the front.
3. If nothing helps I make look into the front wheel bearings. I can't see any movement in them but it doesn't help that they have 100k on them either. Maybe they are on there way out?

Let me know if you get your vibes fixed as well. Seems like an impossible task...

Hey man, great build! A quick question, if you don't mind-- Where did you get the axle mounts for your front sway bar links? JKS makes some, but they don't look as strong as yours do.
