A couple weeks ago I had to drive a POS 90s F150 back through the dunes about 3 miles in Glamis with stock tires. I was actually surprised how well it did with them air’d down. I thought for sure I was going to get stuck.

People hate on recovery boards, but this is why I carry them. Would have been out in 10 min with a shovel and some boards.

Sand is soft. My friend got stuck good in his F250 when we were out over Thanksgiving. Was not air down enough and stopped when he should not have.

I just bought some for my parents for Xmas. They did the Mojave Trail (140mi off-road) 2 weeks ago in their Rubicon.

They're pretty much single use if you get legit stuck. Still way cheaper than paying for a recovery service.

I figure that was the case. They go out alone often so it will be good for them.

We went to Pismo a few years ago. I got stuck a bit towing my toy hauler off the beach into the sand to our camp. I tossed a couple of my leveling blocks under the tires and it did the job.

When I was in high school, I had an old 70s Dodge Dart and all my friends had trucks. I went out to a mud hole will them once and got stuck. Ended up using my floor mats for traction.
Learned that from the Jeep "How to drive in Snow" video we watched in driver's ed. :bowdown:

Back in the 90's my friend had an 80's Civic. We drove up to the snow one night and got stuck in a snow drift screwing around. We tossed floor mats, shoes... everything in his trunk to get out.


Then he proceeded to drive back into it to see if he could make it.
