No, he was the only one, he is actually a caravanner, not an offroader, wouldnt drop his tyre pressures at all either.

Well, except for the shorty JK of the camera crew, that got stuck as well

Nahh, being a 4x4 park the hard tracks all have chicken tracks, the tracks in the vid all are moderate except the one where i did the sill, so most were able to do them

great stuff man. Pretty refreshing watching a video with a bunch of WK/WK2s instead of all wranglers and one WK.

Something I was curious about and remembering you run RCV's:

I know these things are relatively bullet proof compared to the stockers but do they still prefer stock angles?

Will their strength diminish greatly on a lift that doesn't include a cradle drop - an OME set-up with single 1/4" strut spacers for example?

No, they rate their strength at higher angles than the factory ones.

They have a lot greater angle of operation until bind up than the factory ones.

I only run a very small jounce rubber (less than half factory one), and have a front droop of greater than most and they havent let me down at all.
