  1. Offroad tire pressure

    I posted this before in another thread, but this is my thoughts. Tire, pressure and wheel thoughts It seems to me that there are a lot of questions on tires and wheels. I have never worked in a tire shop, but I have bought a lot of tires, wheeled off-road for over 20 years, belonged to a...
  2. Moab Off Rodeo Lodging, Dranking, & Stuff - Please Recommend

    The rodeo does not go into Arches National Park. That is the only place you need a reservation. At this time Canyonlands National Park does not need a reservation, unless you are doing White Rim trail. Even if you do Shafer trail up into the park from Potash you do not need a reservation.
  3. Moab Off Rodeo Lodging, Dranking, & Stuff - Please Recommend

    Deweys is a great bar/restaurant downtown.
  4. Moab Off Rodeo Lodging, Dranking, & Stuff - Please Recommend

    Homewood Suites by Hilton is downtown and a nice hotel, there is a Best Western Plus Greenwell Inn also, a little lower rating. It is high season and a weekend, so it won't be cheap, but the weather should be great. You will need a reservation ticket to get into Arches National Park as of April 1.
  5. What’s in your garage???

    This was taken at my old place. Haven't updated at the new place. Bronco Raptor will replace F-150 Raptor, and Pro R RZR will replace Turbo S, hopefully both this year.
  6. Found Bronco Raptor w/ interior red trim accents and Ranger Raptors

    I am on the list and I will be getting one. It checks all the boxes for me.
  7. My thoughts on tires, wheels and pressures

    It is a C range tire. I have run a lot of C range tires including now on my 2019 F-150 Raptor and my Jeep. It is true the sidewall will flex more but low pressure (down to 12) will not harm the tire unless you go fast on a paved road, as the additional flexing will create more heat. Actually...
  8. My thoughts on tires, wheels and pressures

    You are correct, I mean to say when replaced or removed from the rim. Sorry, loose connection between the hands and mind. Thanks for the correction. The reason for waiting is not because the bead may give way, it is because at low pressure the liquid may allow the tire to rotate on the rim...

    Tire, pressure and wheel thoughts It seems to me that there are a lot of questions on tires and wheels. I have never worked in a tire shop, but I have bought a lot of tires, wheeled off-road for over 20 years, belonged to a couple of Jeep clubs and have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express. Here...
  10. Do Most People That Off-road Need Lockers

    For mall crawling you DO NOT need lockers. If you go off road with other people that have winches, you DO NOT need lockers. If you drive down dirt roads and call that off roading, you DO NOT need lockers. You do not NEED to go down trails where you might need lockers. The vast majority of...
  11. Bronco vs. modified Jeep JL and JK rock crawling comparison run

    Yes, that is correct. My Jeep does have beadlocks, but my Raptor does not. Again it depends on how stiff the tire is. But the Raptor has C range tires (KO2) and it is fine at 12 psi. I do carry a strap and compressor if I blow a bead, but I never have. Do what feels right for you.
  12. Bronco vs. modified Jeep JL and JK rock crawling comparison run

    Yes. I have been off roading for 20 years and never blown a bead. It does depend on the tire, a C range tire I would not go below 12, an E range tire I would not go below 10. Also if you are going to do high speed donuts, go higher. I have gone down to 12 on my Raptor with now problems, and...
  13. Addictive Desert Designs (ADD): Stealth Fighter Bumper for 2021+ Bronco

    I am putting this on my list. I have an ADD bumper on my Raptor now and it is great. I hope this one will fit the Bronco Raptor when it comes out, as that is the one I want.
  14. Bronco vs. modified Jeep JL and JK rock crawling comparison run

    Only aired down to 25? How about 14 or 12. They didn't really air down enough, but it still did well.
  15. Tire pressure gauge issue - spare swap reading flat tire pressure

    Does the spare have a TPMS? My F150 Raptor doesn't. Also, I don't think you have to trail the TPMS, the vehicle should figure it out in a few miles on it's own. I don't have my Bronco yet, but the Raptor does that.
  16. First Bronco Adventure @ Moab - Elephant Hill Road, Needles District, Canyonland National Park

    I have done Elephant Hill many times, if it was closer to Moab I might do it every two weeks. Fun trail and great scenery. A side note, you are supposed to get a permit to do the trail. You can go on the National Park website and get one, there is no cost (at least for now). Although I have...
