Ran Black Bear in Ouray, CO on Friday and everything played out how I have been planning/hoping for months. With the huge tires and beadlocks I was able to run the trail at 5psi at a level of comfort that was enough for my wife to be able to join me on a full day of rocky trails for the first time ever. What a feeling, makes every penny spent feel absolutely worth it.

It's worth the trip. It was some of the most amazing views I have experienced. Plus it makes your G look great :D

For sure. My extended family has a cabin near Gunnison that I've been out to a few times, so hope to be able to convince the wife to take a long road trip sometime in the near future!

My friends wife got a fun 30s video of the three of us making a big splash on our Alpine Loop run the other day.

Brave spot to stand and film! 2 thumbs up for revving out the M113k going into the water.

Made some progress on the CTIS this weekend. Don't have everything mounted up but did a functional test, it's pretty cool.

Pressure shows in bars, not my first choice but I don't mind too much. There are 5 presets I can adjust or air up and down manually per wheel or axle. Pretty fun to just select a setting and a few minutes later have the tires all adjusted correctly for me.

Still missing the centercaps on my wheels, GFG is trying to get them for me from Tibus. Parts on those wheels are a nightmare, if you buy them buy spares in advance.

Single wheel test, all four at once is slower of course.
