IslandTJ Depending on how far you are to the shore, 20 gallons is heavy . Definitely will work if not high centered...

GrnTJ Well wet sand is deff. not as soft and dry sand so Im sure your tires wont sink down as far. I have never really been in a situation where I needed to be extracted from sand so Im not real sure but my guess is that it would help.

distortedtj YES IT WORKS........




Great to build sand castles and use a seat to sit and stare at your jeep while you wait for someone to come recover you.


Really though... not sure ...take a buddy with a vehicle and a tow strap to the beach. Get your jeepy stuck and test the theory. What do you have to loose?

skeeter No but water definitely makes sand firmer.

5 gallon buckets?

OK... heard this from an old timer.... when wheelin on the beach he carries a 5 gallon bucket with him.... at the point of wheel spin and possible getting stuck, off to the shore line, 5 gallons water around each wheel with a "runway" out for each... claims he has never been stuck in the sand using this....

Any of ya'll do this?
