Nice! Tires are probably the most important component to wheeling.

Tires are BFG mud terrains.

We aired down to 45psi and did the hardpack in 2wd, the soft river sand in 4 hi, the hills in 4 low and only used the locker on the big hill climb at the very top.

I only run 32psi on the street try about 15psi to 20psi next time you will be amazed on how well your truck will do.

Air down to 20 PSI.

45 isn't really airing down at all. When you start seeing the tire bubble is when you know you're starting to gain the benefits of airing down. Just don't do donuts while aired down, you're more likely to push the tire off the bead.

Yes I'm used to my F-250 super duty. I ran 65 psi on street and dropped to 40 psi for sand. On the taco I run 60 psi street also

Well sorry to tell you bud 40 is not low enough for these little trucks and running your tires at 60 is not good for your tires.

Im pretty sure that those BFG MTs are 55psi max cold, so you should be running them at 45 to 50 psi on the street and air down to15 or 20 psi when offroading. but if they are 55psi max then you definitely cant run them at 35psi on the street, the side walls are not built for that. Im running the grabber red letter 33x12.50 r17 and the max psi for those cold is 36psi so yeah on the street i can run them at 30 psi on the street and i air down to 15psi all around in the soft stuff!

He cant run those tires at 35psi on the streets. those tires are meant to hold 55psi max cold so on the street he can only safely run them at around 45psi to 50psi! They are not the same as tires that only require 36psi max cold!
