still not quite as much ground clearance as you'd want but it never even almost got stuck. took some air out of the tires as is standard sand procedure.









the real hicks in their ram's and wranglers were definitely giving it some bewildered looks lol

Fishing poles out the sunroof is a nice touch. Did you try trolling the shallows? That would really get the truck dudes talking. :wink:

this was democrat point, and it was a weekday so not too much activity. we originally went down to bike ride on ocean parkway, and then went to the beach right after. demo doesn't open until 5 so we were also one of the first ones there. i'd feel a bit uneasy about taking it to sore thumb, there's some much deeper sand there. the entrance to this was already a bit hairy haha..

even if you don't need to let air out i've been told by the proper beach hicks with real 4x4s that you should always let some air out. makes it less strenuous on the drivetrain and frequently prevents you from getting stuck when you might've had you not aired down.

Less Air = More Contact Patch = More Stress on the drivetrain.
More Air = Less Contact Patch = Less Stress on the drivetrain.

At least that´s AFAIK.

there's more stress on the drivetrain when there's a smaller contact patch because the car has to has to work harder and the wheels will be slipping more
