Jeep Stuck In Sand

You would be amazed at how many people get stuck in the sand and snow due to too much air pressure. Dropping your rig into the 10- to 12-pound range can mean the difference in getting out or going down. Another important wheel tip is to be mindful of your valve stem. Many late-model 4x4s are equipped with steel TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensors) that thread into the wheel. Unlike a traditional valve stem that has a bit of give and flex, the steel sensors will often break when they encounter an obstacle.
