Depends on the sand. Wet sand that once dug out won't flow back into the hole - nope. That sand is so dry, it keeps flowing under the tires. I have seen full sized trucks and SUVs stuck and tell them to air down. Some do drive right out some don't. I would say real video, if it works or not depends on the sand so it doesn't hurt to try. Anything over ~30psi on stock tires you should probably air down anyway so you don't get stuck in the first place.

I guess you had to cover the wet sand issue for people that have never seen sand. LOL
I drive through the sand in the desert in two wheel drive unless I am going up an incline. On flat desert I don’t spin my tires and I have no problems. I have Mud Terrains.
I’ve never driven on the beach mainly because of the salt in the sand. My Jeep has only seen Southern California, so any rust is minimal.

Beach life LOL. Yea salt is a concern, but what ya gonna do? Fluid film and car washes. After 3 years, the most sign of corrosion I see is on stuff that never touched the sand, like the CB mount or aftermarket taillight screws. That rust is caused by the salt in the air. But life is for living and there is nothing like hanging with friends at a moonlit bonfire on the beach.

Holiday on the beach with a lot of inexperienced drivers. People who shouldn't be out there stuck in the sand all over the place. The police truck overheated and caught fire. Had to clear the immediate area as bullets were going off due to the heat. They put it out, then 5 minutes the car next to it catches fire. The fire truck finally shows and puts them both out. Then the firetruck gets stuck in the sand. Holiday weekend with a packed beach and no one could come or go for 3 hours.

All wheel drive does not mean four wheel drive.

Two weeks!

**Goosebumps!**

Been sooooo long.
Me and the fam are headed to Rehoboth for two weeks. I'll be driving out on Lewes for some surf fishing ... a few times.
