I'd love to go myself, but there's a four letter word called "work" that I am stuck with this weekend...*sigh*

Good point

Now I am looking at deflators.
Automatic deflators seem convenient but you have to "program" them each time you need to change the pressure depending on the trail right? Or is there like a universal tire pressure that works generally good for all types of trails making them a set and forget kind of tool?
Which do you use Banks?
Also, I think a fire extinguisher is required at TSF all the time?? I could be wrong.

Thanks again. I'm usually not this much of a pain promise. Lol.

Your not being a pain your asking good question and seeking knowlage. I air down to 5-8 for just about everything. I just got a new set of tires so im not sure were Ill put mine. What you put yours down depends on tire, tire size, and weight of your jeep. 12-15 PSI is a good start point. Ill help you decide once we get there

As deflaters i use Rugged Ridge Tire Deflator Kit, cheap, quick, and easy.

Auto are great, once you get one tire down to the pressure you want you can set all 4 of your deflaters and air all 4 down at once. There pretty much set and forget. But once your finish check you tires with a low pressure guage to insure the tires are at the psi you want.

ABC is right i for got about the shovel and water during fire season. Probaly cause I carry it with me at all times.

Anymore question feel free to ask. There are alot of helpful people on this site.

abc_was_here I've also got On board air that anyone can use if I come. But a fire extinguisher OR a gallon of water is required during non fire season. When it's fire season you need BOTH and I believe a shovel. Auto deflators are nice my girlfriend got me smittybuilt ones and so far I like them a lot better than me having to deflate them, might be a little slower because there adjustable but still awesome.

Thanks for the help and the run. Much appreciated.
Not sure how that compressor will work, but if it doesnt I will have my Viair compressor with me. 2.5 should be ok im not sure on the rules, but dont think the summer fire danger is in-effect.

Yes you can get the permit at the shell station. If you have ways to deflate your tires and air them back up that would be good. If not I got my air pump and deflaters

5/19 TSF Run

While I have yet to get my ZJ wheelable I did mange to scab my YJ back together, long story. Anyway I havnt been wheeling in 4 months. So Im planning a TSF trip, wont be my normal hardcore run. So heres the info for anyone who wants to go.

Date/time: 5/19/2013 Meet 9am @ Gales Creek Shell Station leave by 9:30

Trails: Powerlines to, Firebreak 5, depending on group either take Cider Tree Back or run FB5 back and hit the back power line trails. We will be stopping and playing on the rock garden on the side of FB 5 for those who choose too and I might run the Upper Crusher.

Who Can come: Anyone is welcome to come. This will be a relax run 33's or bigger will do just fine. Stock can come but will have difficulties on a section or two of FB5 but theres bypass if you choose.

Last note Ive seen some post about newbies checking out TSF. This might be a good run for you try to make. As many on this forums know I'm experienced and know the TSF very well.
