Do you guys really need to run radial tires that low to get them to grip?
He has a samurai so I would say yes! If his tires are brand new I bet he doesnt even have a lot of tire bulge or lose much ground clearance at 8psi. Even in jeeps 8-10 PSI seems to be the best to get the tires to wrap around rocks.

I ran 5 lbs on my 35" courser M/T's (shitty tire BTW) mounted on 8" rims. Went from the Rubicon Springs to Loon lake & back to the Springs in 1 day with no problems. Makes for a real comfy ride ;)

My rig is a modified '59 CJ5

Yes, there is a huge difference in traction even with a radial between 10 lbs and 5 lbs.
