A New Jeep On The Beach

NEW TO JEEPIN' AND JUST FOUND OUT THAT MY 2008 2DR JK X RIDE WILL BE DELIVERED LATE JAN O8... MOST OF MY O.R. ACTION WILL BE ON THE BEACH IN LI, NY AND ST. AUG. FL FOR 10 MO'S/YR. (I'M VERY RETIRED)...
HAVE STOCK P255/75R17 TIRES AND WANT TO KNOW WHAT PRESSURE TO RUN ON THE BEACH AND IF I NEED TO DEFLATE, WHAT KIND OF PORTABLE COMPRESSOR IS RECOMMENDED TO INFLATE??? ALSO, WAS TOLD THAT JEEPERS ON THE BEACH WASH THE UNDERSIDE WITH A GARDEN SPRINKLER PLACED UNDER THE VEHICLE... GOOD RECOMMENDATION OR NOT??? PLAN TO MOD AS NEEDED...

Driving on the beach in Daytona I can tell you that deflating is not required. Fully inflated tires will provode more than enough traction. As for teh sprinkler, its nt a bad idea... just doesnt have enough pressure to get some of the tight spaces cleaned out well. I used a pressure washer under mine once a week or if i ended up in teh water at all, i sprayed it immediately.

I love beach driving. Go to OBX in N.C. every other year for vacation. Pick up one of those little portable air compressors (pep boys/auto zone/advanced) that hook to your battery and only take up about 1' of space in the back of your Jeep when not in use. I have had great luck with BFG MT's in all types of terrain and they wear very little for use on a daily driver. Try taking them down to 10 PSI you want a good balloon effect out of the tire if you are on soft sand. Have fun with your new ride

MasterFlow MF1050 air compressor, or the M50 are your best bets besides an on board air setup or C02. I run a masterflow MF1050 and it has yet to fail me, and is quick for a battery compressor. Fits in the "trunk" well, and didn't break the bank.

Used a sprinkler this last May after some muddin'. Worked great, though there were still some spots that needed more washing down.

Looked Into The Masterflow M50 And Bought One On-line For $55 Bucks W/ Free Shipping... Received It In 2 Days... Awesome Little Machine And Comes W/ Soft Case For Compressor And Attachments... Can Use It W/ My 12v "rally" Booster & Power Source... Should Have Purchased My Ride From Amazon.com For Better Deliver Service... Bc

Just be sure

As mentioned, just be sure to give your rig a good cleaning after beach riding. If you don't the sand will slowly start to grind away at your brake pads. The sand causes it to become almost like a sand paper.

I use reserveamerica for camping reservations. Look near Cape Hatteras or Ocracoke area in N.C.

With you being in SE Penn. I would check out Assateague Maryland near Ocean City. That was always my place to go when I lived in Md. Search Assateague Maryland, had a good sized beach/ORV area.
