Prerunner here.

I havent gone offroad yet, but I highly doubt that you would break something. I mean theres more parts to a OR right?

I'm not saying OR are more likely to break.

Yes you can do offroading.........just bring a winch

i off road in mine. Mines bone stock for now and it does surprisingly well in the mud and in the sand. Just air down the tires to about 20psi and it helps with the traction. Its a lot of fun to play around just be careful if it looks to hard for you dont do it. And if you do want to get into the hairy stuff just have someone there to pull you out. No biggy

Check your blinker fluid. Low blinker fluid can definitely cause spontaneous tire deflation.

haha probably from the drifting. You have to be careful when you air your tires down like that since you dont have bead locks if you get the pressure too low and an outside force hits it just right it will pull the bead off the rim and you will deflate the tire. So just be careful when you do that.

np. I always carry a cheap little tire guage and check it before i hit the trail and adjust if the conditions call for it. And than if i air it down just make sure i air up as soon as im off the trail at the first gas station i see.

It is the same thing we did to noobs when I worked at the airport. Asked them to go inside & ask for the key to start the aircraft.
