First run in my JK (Eagle Rock)

Just got it and went for a shakedown run on Eagle Rock (near Colorado Springs). Sorry just had my phone for pics.

Water crossing to start got just a little water in the floor.



Lockers wouldn't engage and I didn't air down (no ability to air up), but that didn't stop it from climbing over everything I pointed it at.









I was impressed and will soon try it out with the lockers.

I live in the Broadmoor area. The pond was almost empty days later when I did it at night with some other rigs.

Rock-a-thon is the mfg. DK on the max psi, but these tires can run at 2psi with the beadlocks.

Nice! I like Eagle Rock and Saran Wrap, pretty good trails (although driving all those miles on Gold Camp Road's washboard kinda sucks). Looks like a good time!
