When you say you're looking for a beach cruising Jeep, what does that mean to you? Can you give us some examples? How much onroad vs offroad time do you plan to have?

Just a jeep that looks like it should be on the beach rather than the woods. (i.e. Color, tires, wheels, bumpers, tops). Im always runnin the woods and beaches, so a lot of offroad time

That looks sweet! Just curious did you get it that way or did you paint it? And if you did what did you pay to get done?

I like the bright colors for beach rigs but, so does everyone else. So you see tons of yellow, lime green, orange and whatever else might fall in that category. My fave paint job on a beach rig was a chameleon paint job that was neon pink and dark purple during the day and green and purple at night. The 9000rpm sbc made up for the pink and purple coloring...lol .

Really if you want to look like you belong in the sand you need to keep it light as possible, nice clean paint job, As much wheel travel as possible, some paddles and lots of chrome... In my opinion of course. I dont like my Jeeps set up like that. I like them beat up and stained from mud..lol

And of course big horse power will get you attention anywhere you go... I always turn my head when I hear a nice blow off valve on the sand and if theres a black cloud behind it its even better... Its getting more common though..

Alright, all you gotta do is take that top off take those doors off and maybe put some folding chairs or beach equipment and your done. lol to be honest I think all jeeps especially top and door-less are automatically a beach vehicle. however like other people are saying light colors but I wouldn't paint it I would get some rims that are silver and a little bigger with some bfg ats. to be honest every time I think of beach jeep tires those are what I think of. but I like your jeep it looks nice.

Looks nice as is. I wouldn't paint it that's for sure. I would look for some 1/2 doors that match, and run with them and no top, or no doors. Beach jeep to me just means a jeep on the beach. Not big into looks, I like a rig that performs.

I must agree with you and Wombat both. I'm a "Parrothead" by design, but a country boat heart. I'd try to keep it set up for both.

As far as color, how about a bright blue... like the Papa Smurf Build?

Papa Smurf Coilover Conversion at Poison Spyder

The BFG AT's would be a nice way addition, too. To me, it seems like if the top and doors are off, you have a cooler and you're on the beach... then it's a beach Jeep.
