So, I've only had a bunch of road miles on this setup until recently. On july 4th weekend I ran as a guide for the childrens charity jambo in WV. Tailgunned on the hardest trail they had called "Diablo". Roughly a 35deg climb up a dry wash. Mostly seatcushion size rocks that would just shoot out from under the tires giving you a fresh supply of WV mud to kill that last bit of traction. Momentum was your only hope. :driving: I've never thrashed my rig that hard for so long. Even neutral dropped it a few times. :nonono: But I still just aired up the tires and drove it home, no problems at all.

Thanks again Marlin! :thumbs: :beer:

Thanks for the great report.

Glad to hear that all went well :driving:
I have had excellent success with my auto adapters.
