    That was my first time in moab in a 4x4. It was by far the most fun I have had 4wheelin. It was definatly sketchy at times but filled with adrenaline pumping good times!!:D:D:D:burnrubber::burnrubber:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egaB6VAi0TM:burnrubber::burnrubber:

    Nice! Looks like it got a little hairy for a moment when you started sliding. :D

    How did your setup work overall? Those are some large rims for that kind of wheeling. Did you find that airing down the tires helped as much as it typically would? (not much sidewall there :))

    Hell of a fun-looking run! Thanks for posting!!! :thumbsup:

    I was very surprised it did so well with no locker (LSD)and 20s!! I was worried about my rims:eek: but they did allot better than expected. I aired down to 20psi my side walls are pretty stiff but they griped like a mother,:burnrubber: only one scratch on one rim. My rear bumper is a different story, It suffered some trail carnage not to bad though. My lift did great things flexed really good and added the ground clearance I needed. The trick with the LSD is to power brake it when only one wheel is spinning and it will basically lock it up ,sort-of:rolleyes:. There was a big FJ Cruiser group we met up with their my brother was one of them,he has a blue FJ with 3"lift locked and loaded. When we started out the first day every on was asking do you have a locker or Atrack and I said nope and they said well we have a toe strape:mad:;) It turns out my truck with LSD and 20s goes as many or more places than a locked FJ :p:cool:.

    Skills and spotters are rarely given the props they deserve. :cool:

    Nice to see those tires grip so well -- I have new respect for folks running your setup! I always assumed 20's would never see dirt and wondered why Nitto would make such aggressive tires for that size rim. Now I know! :p

    Sweet rig, and awesome driving!

    Thats awesome! but there is no way i would attack that in my new truck. thats someting i would do in an old beat up trail rig. if i saw that in my truck i wouldn't be able to get in in reverse fast enough! good job, love the truck :)
