it's so if you are coming up over a dune, people have more time to know you are on the other side of it, before they come over the other side of it...

my question, why 2 flags?

parts of test were pretty bad, but overall it was probably the best hill of the day. it helped that it was pretty busy and we got there late so the peaks were worn down a bit.

yes i have dual exhaust and you can leave the flags on the truck. i wrap up the flag part of it when im on the road so they dont flap around.

i drove around for 3 or 4 days with my mount on. i was just to lazy to take it off and it looked cool. i wanted to ram stuff with it but it's small and i'd still do damage to my front end.

What are you running for tire pressure? I'm taking my truck up for the first time the last week in June, and although I'm used to my dune buggy I have no idea where to start with the truck.

i would start about 12 and drop it from there if you seem to not be getting enough floatation. its been a long time but i think i ran around that psi when i had my stock goodyears.

sand you shouldn't have to worry, plus 12 still has some decent pressure... just don't go turning hard at high speeds (lateral g's)

no, if you take it easy turning and such you wont need to worry about rolling a bead. thats why i run a little bit higher psi in the front tires, just to be sure but you wont have any issues.
