we are bouncing back and forth of the idea of wheeling some on sunday. More than likely it will be a last minute decision for most.

The main thing you will need is a flag and you can purchase them at the Badlands for a reasonable price, other than that just common sense. LOL

You could also use a bike flag if you want to go the DIY/Cheap way. I picked one up from wal-mart a couple of years ago for a couple of bucks. It has held up surprisingly well.

I did the same thing.. still get made fun of by my friends for it. The best part about it is the mount that it comes with.. it seemlessly works with the bolts on the outside of my Jeep.

Well I do not think I am going to make it. My jeep is acting up and I wont be able to mess with it at all until Saturday. If I get it all figured out I will for sure be there on Sunday around noon with some buddies that are working at the badlands until noon time. Anybody still gonna b around Sunday?

at this point.. looks like we have 26 confirmed...and 6 maybes. This doesnt include people who said they were coming and had friends in rigs coming with them. If we have half of the people who said they were coming it will be a good day. Summers Campground still hasnt replied to any of my emails or voicemails so we are planning on camping at the Attica Family Campground (the Badlands campground). Going to try to get there early and set up camp and be at the lower lot around 10-1030am Indiana time. If people are interested in convoying from anywhere continue to post your info of how you want to be contacted. As far as wheeling sunday goes.. its been discussed and some people sound like they are going to and some not.. so you shouldnt have trouble finding anyone to wheel with. Looking forward to seeing familiar faces out again.. and the new ones!

Is it going to be an issue running at's there. I have a set of mud terrains but they are pretty low on tread maybe 1/4 inch in center more towards outer lugs but right now i have a set of all terrains on the jeep that have a fair amount of more tread than my mud terrains. I just don't want to spend the whole day getting yanked out of places. lol. All terrains are 32s and my mud terrains are 31s

It shouldn't be that big of a deal. A lot of guys run ATs there. It's not really a mud bog everywhere, there are some soupy places but there is usually a way around the deeper holes. I'd stick with the 32's and just air down. They have air there also to bring them back up.

I also have a question about my 33" BFGoodrich tires. How much should I air them down when I get there?

You will get a lot of different answers to that questions. I usually air down to about 18 psi. Mostly because that is what my staun deflators are set to.

What is the risk of breaking a bead while aired down?

I would say the risk is low. I have never seen anyone break a bead. Obviously it is going to depend on your tire, tire width, width of wheel, and how you are wheeling. Rock crawling is more likely to break the bead than trail riding. Of course, you could always buy some bead lock wheels and no worry about it.

I have 32" X 10" BF Goodrich KM on 17" x 7.5". I have run them as low as 12 psi without issues. 16-18 psi feels like a good range.

If you spend much time in the sand, you will want to air down some.
