This! This is exactly what I was looking for !It occurs to me a lot of people who have never driven off-road will be buying the new Ford Bronco with dreams of being rugged trail blazers. Believe it or not everybody on the 6G forums is a hardcore off-roader. But some will never achieve this goal because they have limited, or no knowledge of what off-roading looks like or how to learn the skills to do it. If you don’t know where to look to for direction or have someone to direct you, your just left with wondering how to do it, and most likely you never do it. Most of what we see are crazy pictures of extreme rock crawling that would scare off even the hardiest of adventures when it comes to their new 30k to 60k Bronco. But the reality is there are several different types of off roading and most of it will not beat your new Bronco to death.
What I would like this thread to become is a helpful guide to the novice who is seeking guidance and instruction on how to begin down the unpaved trail. Whether it be suggestions or explanations it will start to give people knowledge that they can build upon and encouragement to seeking out their dream of off-roading.
Don’t be afraid to ask any question, I assure you are not the only one that wants to know the answer.
And for the love of all that is sacred please don’t start Judging people in this thread. It is a great opportunity to reach out and promote, don’t screw it up with childish crap!
If you are asking a question, please be concise with the question. It is difficult to answer vague questions in a meaningful way. Don’t ask how I should build out my Bronco questions, but instead ask, if I get this on my Bronco will it benefit me on the trail or how will it affect the vehicle. If your answering a question, please have extensive knowledge of the subject matter and don’t speculate. Please be mindful that you are educating a person that might not understand all the terms and lingo so don’t over complicate your responses.
Please let us not turn this into a thread that debates on options, opinions, conjecture. We can start another thread for the lawyers to debate. Remember this it to educate and inform. If your post neither seeks learning nor educates then it has no place in this thread.
Thanks to all those who help here with questions and teachings!
I agree that sounds very counter intuitive. I would think the more pressure the easier it is to puncture. I hope somebody who has extensive knowledge on this can let us know the answer and an explanation as to why it works if this is true would be even better.I have a dumb question!! One that has plagued me for years but has always been too dumb to ask...
In town we have a normal dirt mountain road that's a notorious tire destroyer, the rocks aren't large but apparently they're sharp. On one trip in our truck we got two flats, about 5 miles apart (we ended up having to ride our bikes 40 miles home, but that's another story) and this dude who pulled over to help me change it out told me the trick was to keep the tires on the extra firm side so they could 'pop' off the sharp rocks. I've always known the opposite to be true, so I would have just blown off his suggestion except this dude had the kind of respectable grey mustache that made me feel like he knew of which he spoke.
So... is this an actual thing? Or am I being had?
