Thanks for all the info guys, I really appreciate it. I don't want to get into any trouble down the beach so i'm really absorbing all this usefull info. My family and I drove down PINS this evening. We drove about 6 miles past the 4WD drive sign and drove through some really soft stuff. I pushed the 4HI right away and we went right through it. I don't know if I did the right thing or not but we did not get stuck.
I wanted to go further but I was traveling by myself with my family and we were losing daylight quick and didnt want to risk getting stuck in the dark.
Can you all tell me the when is the best time to use 4HI, 4LO, and Auto 4WD.
Also is the Auto 4WD drive the same thing as the auto track you all were mentioning earlier?
Oh and should I stop before I engage in either 4hi or 4lo? Or can I just push the button while i'm driving. If not, well I already did it once LOL.
The ride was bumpy, but the boys loved it. The electronic lumbar support on the captains chairs came in usefull with the bumps.
What kind of equipment should I carry when I go down PINS. So far i'v come up with a shovel, Lou mentioned an air pump and gauge.
Oh say I get a flat how do I keep the jack from sinking in the sand while trying top lift the truck
I feel like i'm asking alot of dumb questions and i'm sure i'll have alot more but this is my first 4WD and I want the trips down the beach to be an enjoyable expereince.
