SoCalChris DO NOT DRIVE STRAIGHT UP AND OVER A DUNE!!!!! Ride along side it first to see what's on the other side. I've duned for years just not in a jeep. If you can't see over it do not drive over it. Keep your momentum up to stay on top of the sand. Run your tire pressure around 10psi. A whip is required. A light at the top if your duning at night. Wash off all aluminum ASAP due to the salt in the air. It will put it. KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN FOR THE IDIOTS NOT LOOKING. Good luck.

I live 6 miles from the Oceano on ramp and have yet to take any glamour shots, guess I better put it on my list.

Very true. be sure to check the tide times and you have to have a flag to be out there.

I live here and try not to go out there due to too many tourists. This is actually the best time of year (not thanksgiving weekend though) due to school being in and the cool weather.

- Air down, dont go to 20lbs go to 11-13lbs, you need to spread out the tires.
- Dont make to tight of fast turns or you may loose a bead on the tires.
- Park on flat land or downhill.
- if you start scaling dunes, turn with the way the sand pushes you, do not turn into the push of the sand when you are sideways on a dune.

I dont think I left anything out. Have fun and be safe out there.
