Gupster: I was down to 12psi or 0.82 bar, it would climb up to 15psi after 30 minutes of driving, this I feel is ideal for the sand here, too low we have a chance to have the tyre de-bead, and too high we don't climb well. Yes the sand was quite firm this time, we have had rain recently and due to winter here, the sand is not loosing moisture that it gathers from the night as quickly as it would in summer months. The dune sand is relatively untouched, and the slightest breeze will move the loose sand away to an area that we know will be loose, so we don't try to drive on that.
The patrols are great in the desert, but the newer FJ and wranglers are proving quite popular here now too, they have a more powerful engine. The Tb48E engine is now dated, and does not provide as much power as the newer engines, but I still love the y61, the articulation on factory suspension is just great to get the power down on the ground, plus the reliability and space is peace of mind.
Thanks gents, I am glad that you liked the video, did not get as much feedback from the my club, I guess they are used to seeing this, and it is not such a novelty for them.
