    Where in the sierras? I lived in mammoth lakes for 5 years. Always loved getting lost on the dirt roads near the white mountains

    That’s some good living right there!


    I just went to Bear River off 88 to meet up with some buddies. I usually like to go to less popular places but I’ll take what I can get.

    Just added toolbox and roof-rack to haul my fishing boat 100's of miles into the backwoods every week. Goodrich K02s, Bilstein 5100 front and back, no lift.
    Got out again last Thursday. More trying to find remote fishing lake access. This time got as close as a 1/2 mile hike-in to 3 of the lakes. There were 4 lakes all within a few miles of each other, but damn all the access points are fully grown over, not even ATV accessible. Still, a good day exploring and the only way to find out as 2 of the lakes have no name, and the other 2 have basically no online information about them.

    Did a few short hikes to 3 of the lakes, but not a good day for hiking. Too hot and a 50 pound pack, and zero trails of any kind. Slow going. The area was logged many years ago, and the ground is littered with holes and timber, every step is a potential popped knee or broken ankle.

    To the guys that are driving through fire roads to rough desert terrain and off rows hills/bumps at 5mph about what PSI are you airing down to?

    I have nitto grapplers G2 265/70/17 I run them at 40 psi on road and 30 off-road but I’ve heard of guys that go lower than 20psi.

    Hard rock crawlers will go lower than 20 to really give their tires the best chance to grip, but 20 is what I down down to since it offers a balance of really smoothing out the ride at higher speeds and getting a better grip on rocks when you need it.

    that makes sense, that’s good to know I wouldn’t really air down too much since I’d usually drive to a gas station after to air up but I think it’s time to buy a portable compressor now.

    Portable compressor is worth every penny. I highly recommend the smittybilt one as it's fast and cheap.

    Yeah I was thinking of going with that one, it seems cheaper $$$ than the ARB but also not cheaply made like the $30 Amazon ones that would probably leave me stranded

    If your not going ARB then go with Viair. The only option if not going OBA. IMHO

    I have a VIAIR and love it. I can air up from 16 to 35 psi in just a couple minutes per tire. Gets the job done and stores easily behind the rear seats.

    This smittybilt is a great option. I've had it permanently mounted in my truck for awhile now, and have air'd up many many times, and it still works great. I looked up the cfm of this guy and it's just a hair behind the dual air one. For the price to performance you get, it's a good buy.

    Yeah I use a Viair also. It is my third portable compressor and the best of what I have used. My tires are recommended 30psi, I air down to 24 every trip, a good compromise, not too hard, or soft. Too bumpy otherwise. I am also filling them back up each time before heading onto the pavement.

    For sure. The Viair stuff is nice and I looked hard into getting one myself. My buddy has one and he seems to like it. I just wish they came out with a higher powered model, as their current offerings are almost half the CFM of that Smittybilt and the dual ARB.

    Not mentioned, is that airing out to smooth the ride, is more of a small truck issue. Tacoma, Nissan Frontier, Mazda B4000, Ranger, etc. I never had to do this with my 2 large Ford pickups. They rode like cadillacs on the same washboard pothole roads. Those big trucks though, can't get down the smaller trails I take my Tacoma on, and the B4000 I also had. ATV trails all the time with that small truck.
