    Had to go out and check! Sorry guys your right, only had it 6 months and I asked salesmen if it was electronic like my ecoboost and he said yes! Idiot.. I never cared to look because the tightness of the wheel was like it was, at least I know now before I ruined something!

    What about hosing down all the suspension with WD40 before I hit the dunes? Is that a good or bad idea? I'm just thinking about rust

    How do these answers change when it comes to the 2018? ESP for flat landing when jumping

    Agree with all of this. I leave mine in drive for most of it though, if you don't get on and off the throttle all the time I'm happy with the gear the trans picks most of the time so I don't bother with manual mode.

    I ran most of my older trucks from 10-15 psi at Silver Lake. Have had my gen 2 out there twice this year already, first time I was lazy and didn't air down all the way, at 18 psi it rode a little rough still and I did get it stuck once. Was out there again on Monday, with 13 psi it was much better all around.

    Re: jumping, the truck really doesn't have enough travel for its weight to land to flat (as mentioned). Downhills are better, but I've seen plenty of trucks get their front ends smashed off that I'm not going to do it with mine.
