    Yup! Last time I ran 8 was at Tigerton last fall. Got junk in the bead front and rear on the drivers side... had to be knocked loose, cleaned and rebalanced. Only money... Rode it out at 15 or so this last weekend and seemed fine.

    Stuff caught in the bead was the cause of my slow leak. Suprised that it took a couple of months to start leaking.

    I just did what I was told and ran around 18.
    Otherwise, I probably would've left it at 30 and cracked more than a taillight. :D

    I've found that 16.3 for the rears and 15.92 for the front is really the optimum number once all aspects are considered.

    Pffft.
    That's only if you taste the soil for phosphates and the ph is a solid 6.5

    I haven't wheeled enough to know that 'look'.
    "around 18 meant 17-21.
    Really didn't think the truck or that terrain was going to notice a few # difference.
    I did flawlessly engage 4wd/4L/TRAC/RRDiff

    Though struggled to get it out of 4L a time or two.

    I went exploring with the stl crew once and the funniest part was when Andy (I don’t remember his username) was like 4lo is great but I wish it didn’t beep all the time! We then had to explain he never actually got into 4lo lol

    @CygnusX191 was there for that

    :rofl:
    Hey, it happens.
    I think I recall asking @Stoney Ranger "Is it supposed to beep"?
    The 1st gen AT's were a separate shifter. Always in 4H with a push button activation on the shifter. Had to manually shift into 4L.

    What? I thought everyone did the chalk test when setting tire pressure!
    Admittedly, it’s harder to read in mud. Just saying.
