Updating the "Sand Box"

Went to 315's on 17" Mojave's





Next will be lifting the rear 2" or so. Then ladder, changing the swingouts, awning etc. All a part of bringing the 2003 up to 2008.

Nope, the 4.11's with the v10 actually seem to be just fine. They seam to be just right. Now if i was rockcrawling or doing anything serious i'd be at 4.56 or maybe even 4.88. My speedo was 3mph off and now its 5. It's not that big of a difference.. and actually at highway speed it feels like the truck is working less (flat ground). My crawl ratio went down, but we do fire roads and mild 4 wheeling, so im good. If i went any larger, i'd re-gear.

Thanks guys

50psi at 3194. However for some reason it doesnt look/feel like enough to me. But thats what specs call for. I used to run 80 in the 285's. What are you guys running? I feel like i need at least 15 psi more.

I have the BFG 315’s and have been running them at 50 psi. I have 12k on one pair, the other had to be replaced due to an alignment problem, but the original pair at 50psi have a even wear pattern. On a “cold” morning (that’s 40degrees for me) the Hella TPM says they are at 43 psi which does “look” low. I drop them down to 30psi for 4x4 trails and washboards.

I run my 315's at 50 PSI (rear) and 45 PSI (front) That's what SMB recommends for the BFG's, however, I do agree with adventureduo. It seem a little low, but I think 50PSI is the max cold on the 315's.
