Just a little advice, don't pickup strange kids in your vehicle, you'll get put on a list.On the first page of this, we have pictures in a magazine article, manufacturer specifications, YouTube videos and my photograph which identifies both which version I have and even the license plate.
But, sure, I'll gladly accommodate your request. What would you like a picture to feature?
This coming weekend I'll likely have it fishing at a Utah State Park with beautiful scenery.
The brevity of the last two posts leave me at a loss to understand what is begin commented upon or what is being asked. Perhaps it's because I'm not part of the texting culture that communicates with similar brevity, so I need a little more information.
I did the same to a pompous ass NY'er in his Outback...lol. I passed him at the beginning of my day and pulled him out at the end. He told me in the morning that the Outback was more capable than my full size Ram. What an awesome laugh to end an awesome day!Pal, I told you in a previous post, " You are way overthinking it"
You probably didn't catch in all your studies of reading P&S where just recently I pulled someone about 100 yards back the hard pack of the ramp. The couple and thier Pretty Volvo C70 never got more than a hundred or so yards from it. Just because it's "all-wheel drive" doesn't mean that it's suited for the beach.
Would a set of Dolce and Gabbana Chest waders be I near your future as well? Or will you choose the Gucci waders instead? I think you will be the model of the latest " fasion statement " on the beach TODAY.. It will be a perfect combination paired with your titanium laser guided sand spikes that you've engineered. I'd love to be there when you race a Pompano down the beach with your high perfomance beach vehicle.
Merry Christmas, all! I gave some thought to Jollymon's point of subjecting a fine car to sea salt of the beach and finally have an answer. Though I'm fine with doing it anyway and I did find out the car has excellent undercoating and rust mitigation, I know it will still get some rust. Besides, scratches certainly haven't inhibited my off-road use. No point in having those capabilities without using them and I do. But, in searching for some extra wheels for my sand tires, I bought myself a Christmas present. It seems wheels are expensive for it, but I got a good deal on some used wheels that not only saved me money, but were attached to a used Porsche Cayenne and the one with the big engine. That way, I'll keep the rust off of my nicer one by using this one for surf fishing vacations. Besides, it doesn't need the full twin turbo power for the 25 MPH speed limits on beaches, but it does have the off-road traction packages. As for the rust considerations, the price of new wheels were $5500 and the price for this used 2004 car with used wheels was only $5000 and it only needed new front suspension parts. It should be an ideal choice for the beach and for all the criticism on wealth, this car is much less expensive than the vehicles used by most on this forum. I'll make a rod holder for it to go into it's trailer hitch.Hope it comes with a rust warranty
Spydermn, My post on 12/4/17 has a link of exactly the same year and model as mine preforming well in wind blown sand dunes. But, no, I haven't had it in sand yet. It's ice fishing season here and it performs amazingly well on ice.Ronald: (I may have missed it) have you had it in the soft sand? a friend of mine has been looking at one for years. 98% of his driving is on road but does surf fish. he was wondering.
