    It's a Brute Force Fab hybrid ... Several members here are running it (for good reason). :)

    Careful wheeling. Those tires are sticking out under them fenders pretty far. 2" spacers?

    I rarely go below 20 psi, but I am also a lot heavier than most on here so I get a lot of squish at 20 psi. Any lower and I don't think the gains are worth the loss in clearance.

    Got my new 255/85r16 and wheels put on. I'm running 35 psi right now and they ride pretty good. I read that 28-30 psi is better though. Had to trim the fender flare and pinch weld but that was expected.

    I had the KM2s siped. It's hard to see.

    Looking Good! I went with the Cooper 255/85R16 on Method doublestandard wheels. Need to get them on the truck and some pics in here! I went to Glamis sand dunes last week and kept the 265/75 Dura-trac tires on as thay are 10mm wider and hve plenty of tread. The 'tracs did well in that SOFT sand at 20 psi.

    SICK bumper. Looks amazing!

    I tend to go around 38/40. I have a heavy beast. I go down to 12 in the fine beach sand out here, and usually from around 18-22 on rocky trails.
    I was shocked at how much mine chunk normally. Have you noticed anything with the siping?

    I just put the tires on today, so I don't know if they will chunk or not.

    Cool. Please let me know. And to clarify, chunking only happened to me while doing a bit of rocky offroading, not through normal driving.
