Default Pro Bolts for Rugged Ridge Rock Rings

My Rugged Ridge Rock Rings came with tacky zinc plated bolts. I replaced them with gun metal counter sunk washers and allen key head silver counter sunk bolts.

Yeah, the formula is PV=nrT where n & r are constants P is pressure, V is Volume & T is temperature in Kelvin. So as 0C is 273.16K, at 27C cold to 57C operating temp change is 10% (300K - 330K) equating to 10% change in pressure.

I was damn supprised to notice ANY change going from 36 - 40psi, yet I did, and then found the difference in measurements. I would not have belived the change had I not had consistent readings from the GPSr to verify it.

If you can come up with some other explanation for the change in readings, please, be my guest & explain how it works. All I'm saying is, "This is what I did, and this is the change I have seen. Has anyone else tried this and seen a change?"

P.S. Nice wheels!

Default Stripe Time

Ever seen a JK with side stripes? Breaks up the all black theme a little. I prefer to call it ZING rather than bling.

Geez Banshee with that numberplate it should have been a Mango Tango.
Those tyres fill out your guards nicely.
