I was trying to get a pic on my phone but I was to busy laughing I nearly pissed my self. I went up to help spot him next thing I know his front tire was about 3 ft in the air and the bumper was laying in the mud.

That does not sound like fun at all. Too lazy to air down? After all you've done to your truck? That would have helped more than you think

I've seen those before. It is the quickest, easiest and most expensive way to air down.. $73!?! :-)

Ive been looking at them I just cant bring myself to buy them yet. Maybe once I get back on my feet after my 3 weeks of no work. I talked to Randy about beadlocks a while back then my valve stems will be easier access.

I took Randy's approach to airing down - screw it. I got through everything and I didn't have to by a $73 valve or squat by each tire for 5 minutes each. I think airing-down is over-rated.

Having said that, I am going to try it now that I know they have air on site. Then I can get a good idea.

I'd like to go Rausch in a few weeks if anyone is up for it. Just a day trip.

Dana has everything. Why don't you get an $80k rig to pull your Disco around with as well?! Very Happy

i think when stuff gets muddy and wet it's good and i also like hitting the rocks and the tire gives some, i go way too fast and if they were at 35psi i would hit a rock too hard and just blow out a tire.

Let me know when you guys are getting together. I doubt I will be able to make it as my schedule is packed most everyday, morning 'til night. But, you never know!
