In this pic, is he driving fast or the wind that is blowing the whip backwards?

He and I were racing threw the woops, if you look closely my front end is off the ground and we were doing about 40mph

In my experience, you have to try pretty hard to get stuck like that at Pismo.

jpdocdave 06-22-2009 05:15 PM

very nice

1BLKJP 06-22-2009 05:31 PM

Excellent pics. Looks like the sand is flatter with nice huge rollers as opposed to Glamis. I might have to drag my shit out there some day and hit those dunes.

stevens243 06-22-2009 05:51 PM

Dragging shit from Phoenix to Pismo will leave one looooong skid mark.

Nice pix and vid! I'll have to get up there sometime soon too.

4point 06-22-2009 05:53 PM

Air down and 2WD will get you anywhere out there. Its a great place to run some speed and they have ATV rentals on the beach. I've done that more than a few times.

Rawkon 06-22-2009 06:06 PM

Pismo is awesome i go at least once a year. that section of the woops was pretty mild they can get pretty bad/big in pismo too.

I cant wait to see the go pro vid. we ran about a 1/5 mile of woops with it on.
if you dont have some aggresive higher end shocks dont even bother with the woops. your just gonna loose control or break something.

you can do alot in 2wd aired down in pismo but its pretty easy to get stuck in 2wd.

the guy who buried his wrangler didnt try to hard the sand was pretty loose and he ran out of momentum at the top of the dune. rather then back down he kept going foward until the sand stopped him.

1BLKJP 06-22-2009 06:23 PM

Yeah, I run in 2wd in Glamis most of the time unless I get hammered on a break over then I'll pop it in 4hi.

I know Jeremy from RK did a photo shoot with his Tundra out there after Pamona last year and said he had a blast. It's honestly not too stupid of a drive for me.

If you ever do it you better post up first. I'll buy the beer and meet you there.

Rawkon 06-22-2009 11:12 PM

The guy with the green XJ came from oregon. 11.5 hour drive for him.

Yeah it looks like it's about 8 hours from Phoenix. Maybe I'll set something up for after Pomona this year in October.

Great stuff ... spent many a summer day at Pismo as a kid. Looks like it would be even more fun as a grown-up kid :D

Rawkon 06-23-2009 11:18 AM

Heres a Go Pro vid a guy made from our group. Hes running a long travel linked yota on paddles. My jeep is in the vid following him. the two guys that pass us in the vid have some sweet rigs. the ranger is a Super charged 4.0 with dixon long travel front and deavers in the rear. the VW baja bug was running shitty front suspension but double by pass fox shocks in the rear with a VERY built turbo charged ??? CC motor. he was running 22 lbs of boost in the vid with paddles.

^ nice video ... thanks for sharing.

jpdocdave 06-23-2009 07:24 PM

pretty sweet vid

donnie 06-24-2009 09:04 AM

Been to Pismo several times and always rented from one of the ATV places.
Now that I got ours, Im thinking about going back up and playin as its only about a three hour run from me to get there.
Out of curiousity, what pressure do you recommend to air down to with stock
tires?
Thanks.

Rawkon 06-24-2009 11:47 AM

put all four tires down do about 13 to 15psi.

Tucker54 06-24-2009 09:16 PM

The video was really sick! Your jeep is super nice too. Love the black tube fenders on the gray body.:punk:

Rawkon 06-25-2009 09:49 PM

Thanks man, the jeep is comming along nicely. really loving the dual sport aspect!!

Climbed some big rocks over memorial and hit jumps and woops last weekend.

Uh, do this sooner than later. 1 good 8 foot jump off a razorback in glamis was all it took for my front axle to just be a complete pretzel. :D

Rawkon 06-28-2009 11:07 AM

thats the plan I already have my 8.8 shaved down in the garage. and I have tons of plate. Ill be gusseting the dana 30 as much as possible too.
