It is actually a hole bunch of trail twisting all over. I usually have a specific route that I take which is the most fun. Probably around 5 miles or so.

Thanks bud! This last time I did 20psi and the time before that I did 25psi. I will probably keep it at 20 unless I need more traction for an obstical. You can see three pics up that when a lot of weight is on one tire it flexes a lot! That is a good thing until I push them too hard laterally and pop a bead. I want to do an internal bead lock, but that will probably have to weight until next year. I already have a few unfinished projects that I have to get to before then

Thanks bud! The bar is actually very reasonably priced. Well considering what it is and if you have $500 to throw down on a light

Yeah - I noticed the pic with the driver front in the foreground. It's nice and wrapped to the ground. That's what made me wonder. The lowest I've gone is 18psi - which is just about perfect for my WK and meats. Those BFGs have a tougher sidewall so I'm sure you could go lower if ever needed. But - I'm probably not tellin ya anything u didn't already know....:-)

I still carry the new 255/75/17 spare under the rear for daily driving, but I also have a full size 35 spare for when I swap them on.

Without beadlocks I don't want to go much lower, however if I start having trouble with traction at any point then I will go lower. These carcasses are more flexy then I expected and I know they are stout and can take a beating. I mean thats what they are made for, hardcore competition!

That would be fun however living in Cali there isn't much of that around. Driving anywhere but on designated trails will get you fined quick!
