Thanks, I found the idea on another message board. As long as you have enough water with you, the co2 setup is perfect. It does increase water usage when you don't have to stop every now and then to hand pump.

They did great I played around with psi and settled on 10 psi. I had ALOT of gear in the back, so if I was unloaded I would go lower.

Oh yeah, I also installed a Banks cat-back kit today. I wish I had done it before the trip. I had a squeek/rattle that drove us nuts. With the new exhaust, everything is solid

I have the same CB (came with the Jeep), been working with it a bit.

Had it going pretty good finally and snapped of my new Firestick II first time out with it installed.

First broke the mount then some how busted the antenna later. After the mount broke I had it stuffed in the back with my other gear and still got broke. fwk

So.... I still don't know if its good or not ... lol

That said the next thing I will be doing is getting a small daily driver so the next step in tire size can be a little easier without having to worry about the jeep being my main form of transportation.

Well i guess i jinxed myself. Now I have an update although it is not a good one. Somebody broke into my jeep tonight while it was sitting in my driveway. Luckily they did not do much damage but they did swipe my GPS and a backpack i used for riding BMX. It had a ton of camera stuff in it and a decent assortment of tools. Hopefully insurance comes though on this one.

How do those 285/75 Duratracs ride for you? I'm thinkin about getting a set since I think the 265/75 don't really fill out enough on the MOABs.
