Finally got out for some real wheeling this weekend with the local club:
Crazy low air pressure in deep snow is OK - Ran my tires down to 6psi as recommended, developed a nervous twitch as we rolled a mile out of town onto the trail. Pavement time 5 minutes at around 30mph. Some of the seasoned wheelers were running 2psi without bead locks. Encountered mud, rocks but mostly deep snow. Traction was darned good in the morning with the Patagonias but either the conditions degraded or I did.
Snow conditions can change quickly - I had “fair” traction in the morning. In the afternoon, it seemed like I could not keep the Jeep on the trail.
Great info:thumb: You've expanded on what I thought was possible with non-beadlocks and tire pressure!Winching is not just hook up and go - There is actually a whole bunch of technique to “proper” winching. Angles, blocks, when to use the vehicle… and so many other variables
X20 winch is amazing - It has four pulls on it without a hiccup. 100 feet away, and the wireless remote hooks right up when I push the button.
I have a lot to learn
Snow conditions can be so tricky, I learned that in Ouray this past fall.
That winch was a great mod for you, you put it right to work:happyyes: Is a compressor system/compressed air your next mod?
