Snow wheelin!

Hey guys, planning to go out to play in the snow this weekend with my buddy in his jeep.

Haven't ever done it in the cummins, but I finally got 37" mud tires I'm kinda curious how low a tire pressure you guys go without beadlocks?
I don't have a front locker either... They are on my Christmas list

I've aired down to 15psi for the sand dunes, and had no problems whatsoever.

The snow is light fluffy and almost 2feet deep! It's a sand pit so sand under snow if that makes any difference, the ground is frozen here now.


How are these heavy trucks in the light fluffy? I think it should be fine, but don't want to get buried as the jeep doesn't have much chance to pull me out

Be careful. Diesel Dodges are heavy up front and not out back. With nobody around big enough to un-stick you, I'd be real cautious. I've blasted a few mountain roads in my pig, never messed with tire pressure, never more than about a foot deep either. Driveway has about 18" today though, if that counts haha.

I'd run normal pressure, then when you need to air down you know it's time to chill out. You should be fine down to about 10psi.

Can't see your pics!

My buddy in his jeep was too scared of getting stuck. So I went out and blasted my gf's field lol. Never aired down and had 22" roughly of snow. Truck went through no problem at all.

I'm liking these 37's!

I've gone down to 15psi, but was real nervous about de beading.

Don't know what to tell ya about the pics. Google changed their picture hosting system and now embedding is not as reliable. I have the albums set to public. Not sure what else to do.

Here's a few of my Jeep in the snow, let me know if they work for ya.







I love snow!
