Honestly, my best guess would be to bring some decent sized/weight object or wood or something and DIG. Couple feet at the least, then bury the object. Might be enough to get ya out. If its hard sand though, Im not sure. I guess youd have to buy that thing from Jurrassic Park. The 12 guage pipe that shoots big stuff into the ground. Make it shoot a large pole into the ground
Honestly, im not sure about hard sand, and even my soft sand suggestion is just a guess. Here in MD, if your on the 5 miles of offroad area thats available (SUPER SOFT SAND BEACH) and get stuck, either another truck is right there, or you pay $500 bucks for a tow truck.
We used to use metal fence posts driven into the ground at an angle or buried side ways.

Arguing with a truck driver is like wrestling with a pig in mud, eventually you realize the pig enjoys it.
i used this thing on a trip through the african desert in tunesia and it worked fine.
before i had this anchor i buried the spare tire 1-2 feet and connected a rope to it when i was stuck in the desert.
some friends with light suzukis use this thing, but my TJ is too heavy for that. you can srew it into the sand:
im gunna invent someting and patend it and make a bunch of money haha.....I cant beleive no1 made anthing good besides that ARB thing yet....i know I would buy one if it was guaranteed to work.....

Bet that will be the last time you drive alone. Did you air down your tires before you hit the sand?
Saw a guy at Island Beach State Park in New Jersey play U-Boat captain at high tide one day. Dumb ass decided to ride along the water line and got stuck. Tide was coming in and he was up to his door handles in less than 2 hours. Took 3 of us connected in tandem to yank him out.
To get on the beach you were required to have a sand spike (4 feet long), sledge hammer, board 2' x 2', sand jack, snatch cord and a portable compressor + permit ($140).
