3. What is the "Lowest" air pressure you have tried?
4. If you use the "Run Flats" and air down below 10 psi, do the Rings interfere with your "Foot Print"?

So,
If giving Affirmative responses to the above questions,
5. Do You Like the "Run Flat" rings for off road use or would you not recommend them?

Thanks in Advance for your Answers.

I use inserts that are made from drainage pipe from Trail Fab Worthy. They are now true beadlocks. The military run flats are not good for off-roading and are primarily made for bullet holes...lol. I can run my tires down to 5psi and not worry about anything. I typically run 18psi while wheeling and 35psi on the road. Here is a link to the website that shows a perfect picture of how they work.

@PoppaGator when using the img tagged url from supermotors, you can directly paste it into the text box. No need to use the img button here. That's just double img tagging each one, and why each one says img before and after the pic.

Otherwise, carry on gents!

@Saltlife

Sorry I didn't realize I didn't post how I install them.

Pretty much once you have your handle spacing figure out I mark the plastic trim and drill a hole straight through and into the door sheet metal, I then pull all plastic trims and install in place these things called nutzerts they are essentially a rivet n get install by a similar tool but you are creating instead a solid threaded place for the handle to screw on too.

I did modify the holder that came with the handles for a larger bolt. by the way I found YouTube videos on how to install nutzert without the tool and that's how I did mine here a few more pics. Took a few hours but definitely worth it in the end.

I can't speak for the others,
But those "Little Details" that you do not want to "Bore" us with??

Bring it Brudda',
that is part of the "Meat" on Bronco Ownership,
many of us have gone through the same "Detail Oriented" process.

Great Job so far.

Haha! Thanks brother! It's been a huge project finding all those little odds & ends to make an old hunting truck look nice inside. LMC, eBay, and Carparts.com have been the best resources, but they swallow hundred dollar bills like water!


Don't worry; tailgate rebuild is next and it was a &#$^!!!

@Ghosteh I to agree with @White Dragon the little odds n ends are some of the things that we all deal with on a daily basis but yet some of the most tedious, sometimes the simplest as well as the hardest things to figure out how to fix. If you have pictures of it Id highly recommend posting them, it will go along ways. Keep telling those great stories.

@Ghosteh as I'm reading your interior post, I couldn't help but remember that I saw a pair of brand spanking new blue bronco bucket seats on Craigslist a couple weeks ago. If they weren't 5 hours from me in southern Missouri, I'd have scooped them up. They only wanted 200 for the pair!

I know! Isn't that always the way things go? I looked for YEARS to find a decent seat, and when I finally find one, buy it, and get it installed, then a great set of them pop up.

I saw that post too, and if I hadn't already bought mine (which I'm happy with), I'd have been over there in a heartbeat! $200 for 2 nice seats is a great buy. Hope someone else can use them.

No, it was really easy. Just unbolt & turn it around, using the same holes. If you don't like it, just spin it around again!

Okay so your are not using the actual latch to secure it and lock it in to position then? Only using the bolts to just hold it.

Right. It's probably not the ideal situation, but we never had one fold up on us in the field & we drove those things HARD!

@CainsBigRed most often, a fire will melt the cartridge before the primer will go off. Once there's a hole in the cartridge, the chance of explosion is minimal. The powder will flash, not explode because it is no longer a compressed charge.

I had hundreds of rounds of ammo, 10,000+ primers, and 50lbs of powder go up in a shop fire. None of the ammo or powder exploded, but the primers all went off like a pack of black cats. All the brass and plastic shells had melted, along with every bit of lead, even that encapsulated in copper jackets.

Still terrifying either way!
