and, that's my point as well. what one can imagine is nice but, you can learn a lot more from real life expereince.He also seems to either not know or ignore the capabilities of today's trail tires to run at 0psi on the trails with little to no damage to the tires themselves while emphasizing that every rig should have some form of tire inflation pump, acknowledging the need on occasion to reduce tire pressure for some of the more technical aspects of a trip. I, personally, don't consider 4" extreme when I see Jeeps and trucks riding as much as 12" of lift and still driving on the highways.
trail ratings are subjective to the people to rate them. the rubicon is NOT what i would consider a 9 or 10 on a scale of 1-10. more like a 6-7 at most and maybe a 10 if you were to take on specific obstacles like the soup bowl or the little sluice.Addendum: I thought the Rubicon was the only #9 trail... guess I was wrong. It's the only #10 trail?
