WK2 compared to WK in the sand?
 
Anyone tried the new WK2 in the sand? How does it compare with the old one? I am particularly interested in the Overland 5.7.
It SHOULD be at least as good, but I dont want to take the leap without some insight from you guys.

took my 5.7 overland in the sand this weekend. shes a champ. didnt even air down the tires. dry sand, wet sand, no problem. never used 4lo though, never had to. never drove the wk in the sand, but this reminded me of my quadradrive II wj years back, even with the open diffs.

Thanks, sounds good. I do lots of dune driving as you might have noticed, so hopefully the WK2 will out perform my WK. I have yet to find anything else that keeps up with the Grand in the dunes. And that includes the Landcruiser and Patrol!

I'd suggest taking the air down to just below 20 psi if going in the sand.

I watched this video a couple of hours ago.. Its crazy how soft some of that sand is, you see it almost dig down to the bumper while he crests over a hill and down...
