Sand Mountain, NV

Did a quick two day trip to the sand dunes in Nevada. This was mainly a dirt bike trip but I could not resist bombing the canyon around the dunes haha!! What a fucking blast! In preparation for the duning, I installed a pre-filter on the air filter (soaked in air filter liquid) which I also used for my dirtbikes. This is the make sure and keep the small particles from getting through your filter. I also aired the tires down to 18F and 12R. The truck did surprising well. In 4WD it could go anywhere, but I could not make it up the big mountains. In 2WD, as long as I kept my momentum up, the trans temps stayed cool and it did fine. The transmission temps were holding me back in 4WD after about 15 minutes or so. Also, the Stability control held me back at times because it will not turn off with the tires aired down. Enjoy the pictures & videos.

I had the same issue with the stability control on my truck at Glamis. I think next time I am going to try pulling the abs fuse and see if that takes care of it.

I tried pulling both traction control fuses since I could not find a stability control fuse. It then put the truck into limp mode so I put them back. I forgot about the ABS fuse. I should have tried that. The stability control really kicked in at the worst times. I don't know why you cannot turn off stability control with the tires aired down.

You can. it just turns it turns itself back on over 35mph.

With TC on, press and hold the TC button. You'll see TC turn off almost immediately, and keep holding until you see stabilitrack turn off too. IIRC its about 10 seconds.

That wont turn off ABS though.

This does not work when the tire pressure is low enough to set off the tpms warning. Also, we are not talking about pulling the ABS fuse in order to defeat ABS, although that would be one side effect. The stability control system uses ABS, so pulling the ABS fuse should manually defeat ABS without putting the truck in limp mode.
