    The other day my friend and I went out to our local "dunes" its just a big sand pit.. Check it out! it was one of the first times i tried anything techy trailish instead of just hill climbs or mud. it was a blast to see what my truck could actually do.

    looks like alot of fun.

    we had a place not too far from me that looks almost identicle. it was privatly owned, then a power company bought it and opened it up for us to play, but we had to cross someone elses land to get to it. he let us go by for about a year, now he only lets the power company go back there. there was some great wheeling back there.

    on the dunes, i air down to 7-8 psi with my 35x12.5r15 on 15x10. i have never lost a bead. my buddy with his toyota on 31s started with 4 psi and went down to 1 psi to get more floatation and ended up blowing a bead. funny thing is his 1 psi looked like it had more air than my 7 psi.
