What width tyres were you running and what pressure...?
I've got 4" Mammoths on my Bigfoot and have to run between 8-10psi on the chunky sand up here, I imagine the hard packed finer grain sand down in the south west is much easier to ride on?
I've still got the 5.2" Chinese no-name monster truck tyres it came with just in case...
I think you need to adjust the horizon on the last picture, it is vertical!
That looks like you went Microspline driver yes? Do they do Microspline with 135QR hubs now? I've just gone back to 2x myself. Ran 1x11 for a year, my tinkering got the better of me again, & I decided to try an XT side swing derailleur. 2x11 this time. With an 11-46 cassette. Absolutely brilliant. Very very light actuation effort required, extremely slick & fast shifts, & really really quiet. Shimano have redesigned the side swing FD, & it's a really really good thing.Built some new wheels...
