I suppose I should clarify. I used the GoPro for the POV video. The still pictures were shot on my Galaxy S6 built in camera.

It is more specifically a problem with that particular model. It is lacking a feature known as "Pro Tune" which shoots in "Raw" which makes color correction later during the editing process much easier.

Yeah, but that is video in general when it comes to shooting trails. I was more happy with my placement of it for the Rubicon POV, but like you said neither one does them justice.

I that your "rock pile" at about 6 minutes?  It's a bit more tricky to stay on the points of the rocks when wet  :rain:

I think he was turning it in and out quite a bit. I noticed a spin, pause, and lock cycle.

It is difficult to hear in the video due to the music however I am having an issue with my power steering crying like a pregnant dog when I am turning in the rocks. Because of that I am using my front locker sparingly (don't want the extra strain of turning while locked). I am attempting to find an aftermarket solution for a new pump and reservoir however PSC has stopped making theirs and apparently it was a huge pain in the ass to install when it was made. I'm finding people talking about using a Jeep pump and reservoir however I haven't been able to track down the exact part numbers I need.

No. I don't believe it is due to that though.

36 inch tires can be significantly more heavy depending on the width and brand of the tire.  There's more than 15 lbs between a 35x12.50 BFG Mud KM2 and the 35x13.5 Toyo MT.  Those of us with 35s might be right at the working limit for the stock steering pump.  I've never had an issue and I know the rocks in Moab work out the steering.
