After seven salty winters and encounters with boulders, the OEM skid plates underneath Campbell were in sad shape. Not to mention the shenanigans during many oil changes and various wrenchings.
After Campbell’s running boards took serious damage on our run down the Mineral Creek Trail to Ouray, they needed replacing. For the replacement, we installed steel rock sliders so it won’t be a problem again.
It is important to reduce tire pressure on unpaved roads and trails, even on well-maintained gravel roads, where you aren’t approaching highway speeds. It is safer and more comfortable over bumps. A pressure of 22 psi is conservative and improves the ride noticeably.
