    I've said this many times but I'm sure no one listens to it. We tested my little $40 viair 88p against an arb twin. Both had 285/75/16, both from 15-36 psi. The arb was 20-30 seconds faster per wheel. If you don't have an air locker I don't see any reason to get one.

    my $50 MV50 still fills tires pretty well for the cost.

    Last time I was airing back up in a torrential rain which sucked ass and had me wishing that I owned an air compressor that would fill my 31s from 15 to 35 in less than a minute :/

    I love my little mv50, but I have a air locker for the rear of the 4Runner now.

    Figure the people who live there are the best to ask, but what trails do you recommend for a stock taco? I want to go out to colorado and do some camping in the mountains for our honeymoon and to get my wife-to-be talked into buying truck parts. :D If this is the wrong place to ask, I'll take this over to trails.

    What time of year are you going to be coming out? That will largely determine the trail suggestions, as we run the gamut between trails that are available from say, May, to October, and others that are only available for 3 or 4 weeks in late summer. And obviously some of them can be run when they're snowy.

    Off the top of my head, I'd say:

    - Webster Pass (you can do Red Cone Pass Trail too, but it can be much harder on a stock vehicle). Can be accessed from either Dillon, CO, or Grant, CO. Red Cone can be a bit... daunting if you're afraid of heights, on the descent.

    - Bill Moore Lake, outside Empire, CO. Roads aren't too bad, there are bypasses if needed, and gives you an awesome view once you get up top. Snowpack will prevent you from making it all the way to the lake, but the majority of the trail will be melted and there are still tons of great areas to play around in.

    - Yankee Hill outside Blackhawk, CO. You can go lose your money after you're done on the trail, at the casino. If you go here, take the "back way" in, on US-6, instead of I-70. It's a really pretty drive through some canyons with a river.

    Under normal years the 1st 2 trails would likely still be snowed in. Webster is usually almost August. Redcone can be done with an exit through Montezuma in late mid June but the risk of body damage is high for a stock rig. Bilmore Lake to the lake is usually almost July but has some exploring that can be done before then.

    This year might be early depending on late season accumulation.

    What about jones pass? I saw that one was relatively easy, but someone also said it was boring.

    Elevation and exposure determine if there will be snow on trail. I have never done Jones, don't typically do easy/stock trails so I'm not the best one to ask. Bushducks.com is a good resource to check if a trail is currently snowed in. TrailsOffroad.com is a good site to check if the trails your looking at suit your abilities. Sorry i couldn't help with that trail.

    Views are really pretty. But it's pretty much just a dirt road.

    Here's a pic I took last time I was up there.

    I would like to add that even easy trails can have amazing views, not all do but anytime you get above tree line it is a treat. But above tree line also means piles of snow.

    Really I would check back when your under a month out and see what conditions are.
