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)... :wavey:
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.

WHY ARE YOU YELLING? o/k, I never thought about washing the bottom with a garden sprinkler. good idea.

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 :wavey:

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.

BOBSEE60 12-29-2007 07:24 AM

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.
