Lancelin Jeep on the Sand Photo

Just a quick snap from some beach fishing yesterday.

Only hard sand , so no sand issues in Sand Mode. Although I did get bit of a scare at one time as it felt odd, as if I was towing a barge. Worked out that I still had the Hand/foot brake on.

Re: Lancelin Jeep on the Sand Photo

Nice looking rig, swampy! Unreal beach weather atm.
Did you get the update for sand issues?

Also, what tyres are you running? They look good.

Re: Lancelin Jeep on the Sand Photo

that looks fantastic, gives me some motivation to wash my one (disc: only washed 2 times in the first 10,000k).

Hi Noons

No Haven't had the update for the sand issue as yet. My dealer says that he hasn't heard of the issue, but reading elsewhere it appears that the fix will be rolled out all dealers.

It's due back in the shop next Month to get a TSB so will press the issue then.

The tyres are just the standard Khumos KL21's out of the box. Now have 32,000 ks on them and seem to be holding up OK.

Re: Lancelin Jeep on the Sand Photo

I took my up along the beach towards Wedge two weeks back and it ate up the sand. I saw much more "hardcore" 4x4's get bogged in sections i made it through. I was very impressed with how it perfromed offroad.
