    I run at 18psi, I've done very well at that psi especially with alot of rocks.

    Icon coilovers set at 2.75, TC UCA's, Icon 3 leaf add a leaf and Icon resi shocks.
    Even at my caster set a 3.0 my 285's still rub the body mounts.

    Gold mountain was great especially the rock garden.

    We had 2 groups, med/hard and hard.
    I went with the med/hard group ran white and gold mountains, the hard group ran the John Bull and glad I didn't they struggled getting through that trail, I guess they were saying that it has gotten beat up last couple years, all 3 fj's had body damage and the Lexus Cruiser busted the driveline.
    Plus I don't have a locker, which hasn't stopped me yet but John Bull is a whole different game.

    Yeah, I rub at full compression but I've gotten used to it, I was close to having my body mounts trimmed and reboxed but I will deal with the rubbing.

    I know what you mean trials are getting jacked up by rigs and drivers who have no regard for the outdoors, anyhow I see more Sas'd rigs jacking up trials with there huge 37" Iroks, there diffs just hitting and dragging over obstacles and choosing ridiculous lines that tear up the trail.

    I usually don't spin my tires just becuase I don't have a locker, I drive my rig well and have been able to master wheeling through obstacles by choosing the best lines, keeping a good steady foot on the gas and using the brake and gas at the same time.
