  1. I had come to this question earlier in the thread and honestly hadn't considered that angle before. I know a lot of people in snowy areas will wash their cars after most snowstorms to get the salt off but others don't at all. Not sure that the salt at the beach is any different or worse.
  2. Some great ideas I hadn't though of before, so glad I asked the question! Kind of got me thinking now though living in New England with winter salt if beach driving is really any different on the vehicle? I certainly don't wash down the truck after every snowstorm in winter. Ultimately, with the price of vehicles now I just want to keep my truck going as long as possible while still being able to enjoy the beach.
  3. Just curious if people wash their vehicle down (primarily the undercarriage) after each outing on the beach and if so what you use to do it. I generally just use a hose with a spray nozzle to rinse the frame, brakes, and wheel wells but have seen some homemade solutions to do this more effectively. Looking for some ideas. Thanks
  4. I use a tote as well that carries all my sand driving essentials: recovery straps, shackles, compressor, chains, fire extinguisher, first aid kit, etc. Once the fall season starts it lives in the truck and I check it occasionally to make sure everything is there.
  5. Can you drive on the beach without airing down sure, but airing down helps to improve traction with minimal effort involved to do so. Also, sand conditions vary by area so airing down may not be needed in one place but is a necessity in another. To each his own!

  7. Purchased the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W for my Frontier last year and they work well on the sand and have little to no road noise on pavement. Seem to be a popular alternative to the BF Goodrich KO2s.
  8. Purchased the VIAIR 300P last year and have been very happy with it. Takes 3-4 minutes per tire to go from 15 to 35 Psi
  9. I used these with some 2x4s in the bedliner slots. Good inexpensive solution, well it was until wood prices skyrocketed!
  10. I just put Falken WildPeak A/T3Ws (285/75/16) on my Frontier last year and have been very happy with them so far. Minimal road noise, good in bad weather (rain and snow), and do very well on the beach.
  11. Really nice FJ, love those!
  12. Thanks! Tough to see in the picture but I do have a rod holder in the bed that keeps the rod tip 1" or so from the tailgate. Also have a front hitch rod holder that you can't see in the photo.
