To be honest..never thought of that, I was having too much fun feelling the water pushing a litlle sideways and looking to the sand in front trying to see the best place to climb out...which I did without any problems.

Well, down here you dont get the option of having cars for city, offroad, etc., my thinking is that things are purchased to be used, if I bought a jeep it was because I wanted to know what it feels like and what it can do, now I feel really cofident on my decision, now I know that I can go and have fun with friends in the sand...and I can also take my wife all dressed up to a wedding...this is exactly what I wanted...and I got it !!..very happy with my Jeep.

I'll try to upload some more pics later.

Hi again, in our group there were 10 trucks, the smallest was a Suzuki Vitara, and then there were Chevrolet S10, VW Amarok, Ford Ranger, Land Rover, Toyota SW4, etc., here is a pic of the whole group at a stop having lunch.


And by the way...the only one that had trouble was the little Suzuki crossing a river, water was deep and the truck was small, we had to tie him up and even so it wasnt easy gettting it out, he ended up with water in the cabin..but none in the engine, it took about 10 minutes, his engine started and off we all went.here is a pic of the rescue..

Re: First Off Road experience in the sand..

What trim level is your car? Do you have the air suspension?
