    I love that RV. I saw this episode of Xtreme 4x4 on Spike today. It was pretty cool. Sorta like having a Dingy for off-roading. You'll probably have to watch the middle of the episode to know what I mean ;)

    Cool Thread.....
    FWIW - My experience has been that 15 psi helps, 10 psi is twice the improvement. Where the truck would be stuck at 30 psi in 4L, at 10 psi I can drive in 2H.
    I disagree with the comment on BFG sidewalls not being stout, but that's because I've put a few pairs of them through hell, and never had a flat.

    The other day I drove my prerunner across some sandy spots running 30-40 psi, never got stuck. If I had aired down, I could have done better, but I'm lazy. My friend put it in 4 hi a time or two, and was all like 'how'd you get through without 4wd?' That was a fun night :D

    It could be like a Jeep thing... some BFGs are great and then the owners swear by them, and other BFGs have sidewall failures... and for no good reason.

    I have driven them in deep sand (All Terrain T/As) and they don't do as well as other tires... because of the stiff sidewall most likely. My Cooper STTs were also terrible in the sand, and they were 3 ply sidewalls.

    when my buddy and i hit pismo a couple years back, he had an old early 90s dodge dakota 2wd ... we aired the tires down to 10 and suprisingly never got stuck ... tire pressure is key!

    I usually go 15-20 PSI all around. It does wonders, just make sure you have a good air compressor...and I'm talking about one the runs directly to the battery, not to the cig outlet...

    Mine just took a shit on me...so I'm going to take it apart and see if any of the wires need to be re-soldered...Probably will end up picking up a new one though at some point.

    Price varies depending on brand and other factors...for example, the one my cousin has, I believe he bought for $250-300 new. But he's filling 35's up and it does them uber quick.

    All right. I'll have to see if I can get one for a little bit cheaper.

    Yep! That's him. i'm on R/F every now and again. His rear axle swap was just completed tonight btw. Dunno if you've been following his build or not. We went down to the shop to pick it up tonight. He's in love with the new rear axle. He's thinking of doing hydro-assist next for the steering components.
