Airing Down

28 posts in this topic

This is one of my favorite offroad video series.

These guys have an off road recovery/towing business in south west Utah.

In this video they recover a Jeep with a shot clutch, and can't tow it in the sand.

Aired down the towed Jeep, and out they go.

That’s one of my favorite channels too. Makes me miss my old Cherokee.

I’m just learning about off roading. Why doesn’t this work?

It's usually too late.

Air down when you get on the trailhead so you have a much better chance of not getting stuck.

Air down. Don't get stuck. Don't have to shovel out and then not fill in the holes like most people. Finding a hole somebody didn't fill in as you're driving at O'darkthirty ain't no fun.

Yes and is a lot lot lot less wear and tear on your drivetrain.

Especially with a manual transmission, own a jeep and not airing down puts a lot of stress on the clutch...

first season driving on the sand. Didn't get stuck (yet), but spent a couple bucks on Staun's, some Maxx Traxx-like (read: cheaper) boards, and a Viair 88p pump. Always air down and had a better time driving with highway tires, but the Wildpeaks go better with the lift I put on. I wish I had a more convenient way to wash out the underside after the beach trip though.

Works awesome
