(NARRATOR)>> TODAY ELIZA AND JEREMY ARE GETTING THE BRAKES INSTALLED ON OUR PRERUNNER RANGER, AND IT'S AN ALL NEW ACCESSORY DRIVE FOR OUR COYOTE ALUMINATOR. THEN ELIZA'S CHECKING OUT WHAT'S GOING ON AT LS FEST EAST. IT'S ALL RIGHT HERE ON XOR.

(JEREMY)>> HEY GUYS, WELCOME TO XOR. WELL NOW THAT WE HAVE THE RACE SUSPENSION INSTALLED ON OUR 2002 RANGER IT'S TIME TO GO OVER ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT PARTS OF THIS ENTIRE BUILD, AND THAT'S THE BRAKES. NOW HERE'S THE PARTS WE'RE GONNA USE TO GET ALL THIS PUT TOGETHER. WE WENT OUT AND GOT A DANA 44 FOUR WHEEL DRIVE FRONT SPINDLE. NOW I KNOW THAT IT'S WEIRD THAT WE'RE USING A FOUR WHEEL DRIVE SPINDLE ON A TWO WHEEL DRIVE TRUCK BUT THERE'S A REASON WHY THE DO THIS. THEY DO IT FOR THE STRENGTH AND THEY DO IT BECAUSE THERE'S TWO BEARINGS THAT ARE SERVICEABLE. WE ALSO WENT OUT AND GOT A BRONCO HUB AND ROTOR CAUSE WE'RE GONNA MATCH THE BOLT PATTERN FROM THE FRONT TO THE REAR, AND WE WENT OUT AND GOT ALL OF THE REST OF OUR BRAKE COMPONENTS. NOW WHAT I HAVE TO DO IS PUT ALL OF THIS TOGETHER ONTO THE SPINDLE BECAUSE I HAVE TO TAKE THE CALIPER AND THE CALIPER MOUNT AND WELD IT ONTO THE SPINDLE. SO WE'RE GONNA ASSEMBLE ALL THE BRAKES AND WE'LL WELD THE MOUNT ON.

THE FIRST STEP IS TO PRESS IN THE WHEEL STUDS THAT ACTUALLY HOLD THE ROTOR TO THE HUB.

I'M USING A GRADE EIGHT BOLT TO HELP ME GET DOWN IN BETWEEN THE HUB AND THE ROTOR.

NOW IF YOU DON'T HAVE A PRESS THERE ARE OTHER WAYS OF DOING THIS. YOU CAN USE THE GOOD OLE METHOD OF USING A HAMMER, WHILE I PREFER TO USE A BRASS HAMMER TO POUND THEM IN, OR YOU CAN USE THE TRIED AND TRUE METHOD OF USING THE LUG NUT TO JUST PULL THE WHEEL STUDS IN.

UNDERNEATH THE ASSEMBLY I'M PLACING A PIECE OF TUBING. NOW THAT KEEPS THE ROTOR AND THE HUB PERFECTLY LEVEL WHILE I'M PRESSING THE WHEEL STUDS IN.

NOW ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS ASSEMBLE THIS TOGETHER, PUT IT ON HERE, AND SET THE BRAKES ON. SO WE'LL GET STARTED. I'M ONLY ASSEMBLING THE HUB AND ROTOR SO I CAN GET THE DISTANCE ON WHERE TO PLACE THE CALIPER MOUNT. SO THE BEARINGS GO IN WITHOUT ANY GREASE.

TO KEEP THE ASSEMBLY TOGETHER I'M USING THE TOP BEARING AND ONLY ONE OF THE SPINDLE NUTS.

OBVIOUSLY TO CENTER THE CALIPER I'M GONNA NEED BOTH PADS IN PLACE.

OUR CALIPER BRACKET MOUNT CAME WITH THE KIT FROM LSK, AND THE GRADE EIGHT HARDWARE CAME FROM INDUSTRIAL DEPOT.

[ welder crackling ]

(JEREMY)>> OKAY, SO WITH THAT BRACKET TACKED INTO PLACE I'M GONNA TAKE A THE WHOLE ASSEMBLY APART CAUSE I'M GONNA ACTUALLY BURN IT IN. SO I MIGHT AS WELL JUST GET TO IT.

WE'RE DOING THIS FOR TWO REASONS. ONE, I NEED TO WELD THE BRACKET ON THE INSIDE BEHIND THE ROTOR, AND THE SECOND IS I DON'T WANT THE HEAT TO EFFECT THE BEARING.

NOW I'M GONNA LEAVE THE SPINDLE ON BECAUSE THERE'S A LIGHT COAT OF GREASE ON THE SPINDLE AND THE WELDS WON'T EVEN STICK TO IT. [ welder crackling ]

(JEREMY)>> FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT RUN YOUR OWN REPAIR SHOP, OR FOR THE ADVANCED DO IT YOURSELFER THAT'S IN THE NEED OF A SCAN TOOL THAT DOES MORE THAN JUST READ CODES AND HAS A WHOLE BUNCH OF BUILT IN FEATURES TO HELP YOU GET THE JOB DONE, WELL MATCO TOOLS HAS COME OUT WITH THE MAXIMUS THREE POINT ZERO DIAGNOSTIC SCAN TOOL. THE SOFTWARE OF THE MAXIMUS HAS BEEN COMPLETELY REVAMPED TO HELP YOU WORK FASTER AND EASIER TO COMPLETE MORE JOBS WITH LESS CLICKS ON THE SCREEN. YOU NO LONGER NEED TO CLICK THROUGH MULTIPLE SCREENS TO GET TO YOUR MOST COMMONLY USED FEATURES. NOW FEATURES LIKE IM READINESS AND MAX VIN ARE RIGHT ON THE MAIN SCREEN TO START THE JOB FASTER. SO IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A DIAGNOSTIC SCAN TOOL THAT CAN SAVE YOU TIME, AND WE ALL KNOW TIME IS MONEY, TAKE A LOOK AT THE MATCO TOOLS MAXIMUS THREE POINT ZERO DIAGNOSTIC SCAN TOOL.

(NARRATOR)>> UP NEXT WE'LL GET OUR NEW ACCESSORY DRIVE INSTALLED, AND LATER, ELIZA'S HAVING FUN AT LS FEST EAST!

(JEREMY)>> HEY GUYS, WELCOME BACK TO XOR. NOW TO GET OUR COYOTE IN BETWEEN THE FRAME RAILS OF OUR PRERUNNER WE HAD TO MOVE A COUPLE OF THINGS. THE OIL FILTER HOUSING WAS IN THE WAY AND SO WAS THE ALTERNATOR. SO WE WENT TO POWER BY THE HOUR PERFORMANCE AND PICKED UP A COUPLE OF THINGS TO HELP US OUT. PBH MAKES A KIT THAT RELOCATES THE ALTERNATOR FROM THE LOWER DRIVER'S SIDE TO THE UPPER PASSENGER SIDE, AND THAT KIT INCLUDES A COUPLE OF TENSIONERS AND SOME PULLEYS, THE BRACKET TO MOVE THE ALTERNATOR, THROTTLE BODY SPACER, AND SOME BELTS. NOW WHEN WE RELOCATE OUR ALTERNATOR WE'RE ACTUALLY GONNA BE RUNNING IT BACKWARDS. SO WE NEED TO GET RID OF THE ORIGINAL CLUTCH STYLE PULLEY AND GO TO JUST A STANDARD PULLEY. WE ALSO GOT FROM POWER BY THE HOUR A BRACKET THAT HELPS US RELOCATE THE OIL FILTER 90 DEGREES. AND THIS WHOLE PROCESS STARTS WITH REMOVING YOUR STOCK THROTTLE BODY. THEN INSTALLING THE SPACER, WHICH ACTUALLY CLOCKS THE THROTTLE BODY A LITTLE BIT TO THE RIGHT, AND THAT SLIGHT ADJUSTMENT MAKES WAY FOR ONE OF THE STAND OFFS.

MAKE SURE YOU GUYS GET THIS NICE AND TIGHT BUT REMEMBER, THIS IS ALL MADE OUT OF ALUMINUM. SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO GET CRAZY.

UP NEXT ARE THE THREE STAND OFFS THAT WILL HELP YOU MOUNT THE ALTERNATOR BRACKET.

AND CLEARANCE FOR THIS STAND OFF IS WHY THEY CLOCK THE THROTTLE BODY SLIGHTLY TO THE RIGHT. THE MACHINED ALUMINUM BRACKET IS NOW BOLTED TO WHAT USED TO BE THE FRONT OF THE ALTERNATOR.

AND ALL THE HARDWARE YOU NEED TO INSTALL THIS COMES IN THE KIT.

AND DON'T FORGET TO INSTALL THE BELT BEFORE YOU SLIDE THE WHOLE ASSEMBLY IN PLACE.

WITH THE ALTERNATOR IN PLACE YOU CAN INSTALL THE FIRST OF TWO SUPPLIED TENSIONERS.

THIS BELT THAT DRIVES THE ALTERNATOR GETS INSTALLED ON THE REAR OF THE BALANCER.

AND TENSIONER NUMBER TWO IS FOR THE BELT THAT WILL NOW DRIVE THE WATER PUMP.

ALL RIGHT, THAT RELOCATES THE ALTERNATOR. NOW WE'LL GO AHEAD AND PUT ON THE OIL FILTER ADAPTER, AND THIS PART IS ESSENTIAL FOR YOU GUYS DOING COYOTE SWAPS. THIS TURNS THE OIL FILTER 90 DEGREES SO YOU CAN STICK THE MOTOR PRETTY MUCH IN BETWEEN ANY SET OF FRAME RAILS.

THERE YOU GO, ALL DONE. FOR THOSE OF YOU GUYS THAT HAVE A 2012 TO 2013 JEEP JK WRANGLER WITH THE THREE POINT SIX LITER YOU GUYS MAY BE GETTING UP THERE IN MILEAGE. WELL POWERTRAIN PRODUCTS HAS THEIR COMPLETELY REBUILT THREE POINT SIX LITER TO HELP YOU GUYS OUT. THIS THREE POINT SIX LITER ENGINE IS FULLY REBUILT TO JEEP'S STANDARDS. IT HAS 100 PERCENT NEW TIMING COMPONENTS TO AVOID ANY TIMING RELATED ISSUES, AND IT COMES WITH A HIGHER VOLUME OIL PUMP AND COATED HYPER EUTECTIC PISTONS. POWERTRAIN PRODUCTS' ENGINES COME WITH A STANDARD FOUR YEAR WARRANTY, AND YOU CAN EVEN UPGRADE TO A NO FAULT FIVE YEAR WARRANTY THAT WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH A FREE ENGINE NO QUESTIONS ASKED EVEN IF THERE'S A PROBLEM WITH THE ENGINE THAT ISN'T COVERED UNDER THEIR NORMAL WARRANTY.

(NARRATOR)>> WHEN WE COME BACK WE'LL GET WINDOW NETS INSTALLED ON OUR PRERUNNER, STAY TUNED.

(ELIZA)>> HEY GUYS, WELCOME BACK TO XOR. WITH ALL OF OUR GLASS GONE IT IS TIME FOR ANOTHER SAFETY UPGRADE, WHICH MEANS WINDOW NETS, BUT IN ORDER TO GET OUR WINDOW NETS INSTALLED I NEED TO MAKE SOME DOOR INTRUSION BARS. SO THAT WAY I KNOW EXACTLY WHERE THE BRACKETS FOR THE NETS ARE GONNA GO.

THE INTRUSION BARS ARE APTLY NAMED. THEY KEEP ANYTHING FROM INTRUDING INTO THE CAB BOTH ON PASSENGER AND DRIVER SIDE. WITH OUR INTRUSION BAR TACKED INTO PLACE WE CAN NOW BEGIN WORKING ON OUR WINDOW NET. SO WE WENT TO SUMMIT RACING DOT COM, PICKED UP A COUPLE OF NETS AND SOME INSTALLATION KITS. IN THESE INSTALLATION KITS COME TWO BARS, THREE COLLARS, THREE COTTER PINS, AND A PUSH BUCKLE.

WITH THE PUSH BUCKLE'S TONGUE TACKED TO THE TOP BAR, IT ALLOWS ME TO POSITION AND TACK THE BUCKLE ITSELF TO THE ROLL CAGE. [ welder crackling ]

(ELIZA)>> WITH THE NET IN PLACE IT POSITIONS THE TOP BAR SO I CAN SLIDE THE REAR COLLAR AND TACK IT TO THE CAGE. AND THE SAME GOES FOR THE BOTTOM FRONT COLLAR, FOLLOWED BY THE REAR BOTTOM COLLAR. ALL OF THAT ALLOWS ME TO MARK THE LOCATION FOR THE COTTER PIN RETAINERS.

TIME TO GET THESE BABIES DRILLED OUT.

A ONEEIGHTH DRILL BIT DOES THE JOB.

IT'S THROUGH!

IT WORKS!

OUR PUSH BUCKLE OPERATED NET IS ALLOWED BY SCORE AND OTHER SANCTIONING BODIES. BE SURE AND CHECK YOUR RULE BOOK TO SEE WHAT TYPE OF WINDOW NET SETUPS ARE ALLOWED ON YOUR RACE TRUCK. ALL RIGHT, IT LOOKS LIKE EVERYTHING FITS. ALL THAT'S LEFT IS TO BURN HER IN.

(JEREMY)>> LET'S SAY YOU'VE GOT A SET OF WHEELS AT HOME THAT ARE ALL CORRODED, OR YOU FOUND A SET OF WHEELS THAT YOU REALLY LIKE YOU JUST DON'T CARE FOR THE FINISH. WELL DUPLICOLOR HAS A COUPLE OF PRODUCTS TO HELP YOU CHANGE THE FINISH OF YOUR WHEELS.

FIRST IS THEIR GREASE AND WAX REMOVER.

NEXT WE'RE GONNA USE THEIR SELF ETCHING PRIMER.

AND LASTLY WE'RE GONNA USE THEIR TEXTURED METALLIC COATING. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON ANYTHING ON TODAY'S SHOW GO TO POWERNATION TV DOT COM. AND AFTER YOU APPLY TWO TO THE THREE COATS AND LET IT ALL DRY YOU CAN GO AHEAD AND MOUNT YOUR TIRE. SEE, LOOKS BRAND NEW.

(ELIZA)>> NOW YOU'VE HEARD ME TALK ABOUT PRESTONE'S DOT THREE HIGH TEMPERATURE SYNTHETIC BRAKE FLUID. HERE'S SOME OF THE REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER CHANGING YOUR BRAKE FLUID.

(JEREMY)>> BRAKE FLUID ABSORBS MOISTURE, LEADING TO THAT SPONGY FEELING IN YOUR BRAKE PEDAL. NOW INSTEAD OF REPLACING EXPENSIVE PARTS CHANGING YOUR FLUID CAN SOLVE THAT PROBLEM. ALSO OVER TIME THE CORROSION PROTECTION IN YOUR BRAKE FLUID BREAKS DOWN. SO WHEN YOU'RE READY TO REPLACE YOUR BRAKE FLUID USE SOMETHING WITH A HIGHER CONCENTRATION OF CORROSION INHIBITORS, LIKE PRESTONE'S DOT THREE BRAKE FLUID. EITHER WAY IT'S AN EASY FIX.

(NARRATOR)>> AFTER THE BREAK ELIZA'S ON THE LOOSE AT LS FEST EAST, STICK AROUND!

(ELIZA)>> HEY GUYS, WELCOME BACK TO XOR. WE HAD SO MUCH FUN OUT AT LS FEST WEST IN NEVADA THAT I DECIDED I NEEDED TO COME OUT AND CHECK OUT ALL THE COOL RIDES HERE AT LS FEST BOWLING GREEN, KENTUCKY. LET'S GO SEE WHAT WE FIND.

JUST AS SOON AS I PARKED OUR LS POWERED SCOUT IN FRONT OF THE HOLLEY TRAILER JASON GROVES PARKED TWO OF HIS OFF ROAD RIGS RIGHT NEXT TO ME AND THEY WERE PRETTY COOL. SO TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT BOTH BUILDS. BOTH OF THEM HAVE LS' RIGHT?

(JASON)>> YEAH THIS ONE'S GOT A SIX LITER IN IT. FOUR LITER TO SIX LITER SWAP. THIS ONE HERE COME IN WITH A ONE POINT NINE LITER IN IT. WE DONE A FIVETHREE SWAP ON IT. CUSTOM BUILT AXLES UNDER THIS ONE. THEY'RE JUST REALLY NICE PIECES TO HAVE FUN AND PLAY IN THE WOODS WITH.

(ELIZA)>> SO WERE YOU LIKE ON OF THE ONLY ROCK CRAWLERS OUT HERE FOR THE VERY BEGINNING OF THIS LS FEST?

(JASON)>> YEAH, THE FIRST COUPLE WE COME TO THIS ONE THE ONLY ONE HERE, AND THEN THE FOLLOWING YEAR WE BROUGHT THE OTHER ONE. WE'VE ACTUALLY MADE PASSES DOWN THE DRAG STRIP WITH THEM, AND THE CROWD JUST LOVES THEM.

(ELIZA)>> YOU KNOW WHAT IS SO COOL ABOUT LS FEST, AND REALLY JUST CAR SHOWS AND CAR CULTURE IN GENERAL, IS THAT THERE'S A LOT OF STORIES BEHIND THE BUILDS. IT'S USUALLY NOT JUST THE BUILD FACE VALUE. SO MUCH SENTIMENT INVOLVED IN THE STORIES AND I REALLY LOVE TO GET TO KNOW THE PEOPLE AND THE WHYS AND THE HOWS OF THEIR BUILDS.

(JAMES)>> WHEN I WAS 16 IN HIGH SCHOOL I HAD A '67 RALLY SPORT. IT WAS WHITE, BLACK TOP, BLACK BUMBLEBEE STRIPE. SO I BROUGHT HOME A PIECE OF JUNK CAR AND MY WIFE, SHE THREW A FIT. SHE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WAS DOING. I LOOKED FOR A '67 CAMARO AND I COULDN'T FIND ONE. SO I FOUND THIS '68 RELATIVELY CHEAP. ME AND MY WIFE TOOK IT ON VACATION THIS YEAR. WE DROVE IT LIKE 3,000 MILES ON A VACATION. WE'VE DONE THE POWER TOUR THIS YEAR IN IT. WE'VE WENT EVERYWHERE IN IT.

(ELIZA)>> IN THE STAGING LANES I CAUGHT UP WITH KARI BEAHUS IN HIS OLD SCHOOL KFIVE BLAZER. AN AVID OFF ROAD, KARI LOST THE USE OF HIS LEGS TO A DIRT BIKE ACCIDENT BUT THAT DOES NOT KEEP HIM OFF THE TRACK.

(KARI)>> IT'S A DART LSX BLOCK. IT'S GOT A CALLIES ULTRA BILLET CRANK IN IT WITH CP RODS AND PISTONS. CP AND CARRILLO RODS AND PISTONS.

(ELIZA)>> SO A '72 BLAZER THAT WE'VE BEEN WATCHING IS COMING UP. I SAW HIM YESTERDAY ON THE TRACK. HE RAN EIGHTS DOWN THE TRACK AND PULLED A WHEELIE. IT WAS AWESOME! KARI'S KFIVE IS OUTFITTED WITH HAND CONTROLS, AND YOU CAN REALLY SAY IT LOOKS LIKE HE'S GOT HIS FULL ON THIS PASS.

HE DID IT AGAIN. THAT WAS AS IMPRESSIVE AS IT WAS THE FIRST TIME AROUND, I LOVED IT!

(KARI)>> I WAS RUNNING IN THE EIGHTS ON MOTOR AND ON NITROUS CAUSE I HAD TO PEDAL IT WITH SOME SPRAY.

(ELIZA)>> I LOVE THIS TRUCK. IT'S BEAUTIFULLY DONE. IT'S A GOOD MIX BETWEEN LIKE THE OLD AND THE MODERN, AND IT'S JUST SUCH A BEAUTIFUL SQUARE BODY. RONNIE BLAIN SHOWED UP IN HIS 2016 SILVERADO THAT HAS BEEN RESKINNED TO HAVE THE CLASSIC LOOK OF A VINTAGE C-10. HE USED 1967 BODY PANELS, A '67 BED, AND AN ORIGINAL GRILL AND COUNTLESS HOURS OF BODY WORK TO MAKE THIS ONE OF A KIND TRUCK.

(RONNIE)>> WHAT MY IDEA WAS WAS TO TAKE A NEW TRUCK WITH ALL THE SAFETY EQUIPMENT, ABS, AIR BAGS, NEW RIDE AND DRIVE SUSPENSION. A NEW DRIVING EXPERIENCE BUT WE WANTED IT TO LOOK OLD. YOU CAN'T BEAT THE LOOK OF AN OLD '67 TRUCK AND WHEN YOU DO IT LIKE WHAT WE DID HERE YOU'VE GOT ALL YOUR MODERN CONVENIENCES. YOU'VE GOT ROOM IN THE CAB. YOU CAN RIDE DOWN THE ROAD 80 MILE AN HOUR GETTING 25 MILES A GALLON. YOU CAN'T REALLY DO THAT IN AN OLD TRUCK. I'VE NEVER SEEN IT DONE BEFORE. WE RESEARCHED THIS BEFORE DID IT, AND THAT I KNOW OF THIS IS A ONE OFF TRUCK. THERE'S NOT ANOTHER ONE IN THE COUNTRY LIKE IT.

(ELIZA)>> WELL THAT'S ABOUT IT FOR LS FEST EAST OUT HERE IN BOWLING GREEN, KENTUCKY. NO MATTER THE EVENT, EAST OR WEST, WHAT IS AWESOME ABOUT THESE PLACES ARE THE PEOPLE, THE CARS, AND THEIR STORIES. I'M GONNA CATCH A FEW RUNS BEFORE I HEAD OUT TO THE SHOP AND THE SCOUT, BYE!

(JEREMY)>> FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVE BIG OFF ROAD TIRES ON YOUR PROJECTS, AND ESPECIALLY IF YOU DRIVE THOSE PROJECTS ON THE STREET, YOU CAN'T EXACTLY GO BY THE MANUFACTURER'S SUGGESTED TIRE PRESSURE STICKER YOU FIND ON YOUR DOOR. WELL THE REASON WHY YOU CAN'T DO THAT IS BECAUSE WITH BIGGER OFF ROAD TIRES YOU HAVE A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT SIDEWALL AND THE LOAD RATING IS DIFFERENT. WELL WE'RE GONNA SHOW YOU A QUICK AND EASY WAY USING SIDEWALK CHALK THAT YOU STEAL FROM YOUR KID'S TOY BOX TO SET THE TIRE PRESSURE IN YOUR TIRES CAUSE WE DEFINITELY DON'T WANT THESE WEARING A HOLE IN YOUR WALLET. THE WAY THIS WORKS IS YOU WANT TO APPLY A LOT OF CHALK STRAIGHT ACROSS THE TREAD PATTERN OF YOUR TIRE. THEN IN A NICE EMPTY PARKING LOT GO FOR A DRIVE. MAKE SURE YOU GO STRAIGHT AND DON'T TURN YOUR TIRES. FOR OUR TEST WE WENT ABOUT 100 YEARS IN A PERFECTLY STRAIGHT LINE. WITH THE VIDEO SLOWED DOWN YOU CAN NOW SEE THE WEAR THAT'S HAPPENING ON THE CHALK.

WE DID OUR FIRST TEST AT 32 PSI AND COMING TO A STOP YOU CAN SEE THE NICE EVEN WEAR ACROSS THE TREAD. NOW THAT PROVES WITH THIS EVEN TREAD WEAR THAT 32 PSI IS THE PERFECT AIR PRESSURE TO BE RUNNING IN THESE TIRES WITH THE WEIGHT OF OUR SCOUT, BUT LET'S SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE BUMP IT UP TO LET'S SAY 50 POUNDS. AGAIN, APPLY A HEAVY AMOUNT OF CHALK ACROSS THE WHOLE TREAD.

IN AN EMPTY PARKING LOT OR A SIDE STREET GO FOR A DRIVE.

AND COMING TO A STOP THIS TIME WE FIND THE CHALK IS WORE OFF ON THE DEAD CENTER OF THE TIRE. AND YOU CAN PRETTY MUCH ASSUME THAT THE EXACT OPPOSITE WILL HAPPEN WHEN WE DROP OUR TIRE PRESSURE ALL THE WAY DOWN TO LET'S SAY ABOUT 10 POUNDS. [ air hissing ]

(JEREMY)>> AFTER DUMPING 40 PSI IT'S THE SAME ROUTINE. GO BACK AND APPLY HEAVY CHALK ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE TREAD OF THE TIRE.

IT'S THE SAME ROUTINE AGAIN. JUST KEEP IT IN A STRAIGHT LINE.

AND AS YOU WOULD EXPECT, NOW THE CHALK IS WORN OFF ON THE OUTSIDES OF OUR TIRE. THE GREAT THING ABOUT THIS IS THAT IN JUST A COUPLE OF MINUTES YOU CAN GET AN EFFECTIVE READING ON WHAT YOUR TIRES ARE REALLY DOING. NOW THAT'S PRETTY COOL. WITH SOME CHALK THAT YOU CAN PROBABLY STEAL FROM YOUR KIDS YOU CAN DO A REAL WORLD TEST TO FIND THE REAL WORLD TIRE PRESSURE TO RUN IN YOUR OVERSIZED TIRES.
