Jeep on the beach

Decided to try out the GC on the beach in the sand. Went down to Seaview, WA. Put it in Sand/Mud mode and had no issues. Even helped a stuck Trailblazer. Makes you feel good when your Jeep can literally do circles around them! See photos.

Re: Jeep on the beach

Nope, tire pressure was not adjusted. Jeep had no issues, even in the deep stuff. Did not use 4x4 low, just sand/mud mode.

Re: Jeep on the beach

Last time I went to the beach I saw a stuck trailblazer. Took a pic and sent it to my buddy who owns one. He wasn't impressed. lol

Funny, I guess Trailblazers should just stay off the beach!

Re: Jeep on the beach

Nice to see your pics, and nice to hear your WK2 didn't fail in the sand.

Re: Jeep on the beach

Most suv's that get stuck on the beach get that way due to bad drivers, not bad vehicles. I lived on LI for most of my life and ran the ocean beaches in Broncos, Blazers, TrailBlazers and Jeeps. Over the years I assisted Broncos, Blazers, TrailBlazers and Jeeps.

I must say, your GC looks right at home out there.
