More pics....First Off Road experience in the sand..

Hi again,
Here are some more pics, not sure how to upload video, in the meantime...enjoy !.

After going down the dunes..there was always some water to be crossed...



Going down....


Going up...catching some speed before the climb...


Huge dunes...lots of fun...the one in the right is me, easy to see with the daytime lights on.


Crossing some more water, it got deeper later...but basically as you can see the water was running quite fast into the beach...never had a problem, no water inside, never lost traction, what I did was set the off road position to highest setting..just in case !..


The driver, The boat and The Jeep !.....great place...we stopped there for a quick snack before going to the dunes again !.


Getting ready for the dive.....


Sailing, navigating or driving...however you wish to call it....


Last one for now....here you get a small sense of how big the dunes are..you really feel like you are in the Sahara !...


By the way....if anybody wonders...the Jeep in a scale from 1 to 10 was a 10 !, never a problem, lots of traction in the sand..and the sound !..with the K&N system installed...when climbing the roarr that came from the engine was quite a sound !...
Well, hope you enjoyed the pics, I learned (and still learning) quite a lot, with 13000 kms (8125 miles) the least I can do is share pics of my trips.
Rgds.

Re: More pics....First Off Road experience in the sand..

I'm impressed you kept traction. Sand and sand in water can be tricky.

This is without Rear Limited Locker too, if I understand your rig.

Poor Jeep. I can never do that to my Jeep.

Let me say...lots of fun !, Jeep is supposed to do that and much more, in my case I take care good care of my truck but then again my theory is that material things are supposed to be used, and in case something breaks you can always fix it or replace it, whats the sense of having a Jeep and not trying it outside the paved roads ?..

Rgds., have a great one.

Its actually sweet water running into the ocean, we are right by the sea, in some of the pics I believe you can see the ocean in the background.
Place is in Argentina, Necochea is the closest town, south of Buenos Aires.
ANd yes, obviously after the 2 days in the sand and water I took care of my Jeep with a huge deep wash, inside and out, if you see my truck today you wouldnt believe its the same in the pics !.
Have a good one.

You are my new Jeep Hero !
I took my car off-road as well, and crossed mud streams and climbed sand dunes and lived to tell about it and how awesome the JGC really was. But my experience is dwarfed by yours !
