    Different Terrain

    Around where I live there are a few sand pits and I would hate to get stuck in the middle of nowhere... Any suggestions? I was out there today with my still stock, JK running in 4H. I only had a few problems when I tried to go up 2 different sand/grass hill.. Should I be doing something different?

    What about when I venture into the Withalacoochie Forest where its mostly mud/dirt (Im assuming).

    Any tips are helpful, thanks!

    Be careful in Withalacoochie/Richloam some of the water holes are nastier than they appear. Best thing is go with at least one other rig so you're not stuck out in the middle of nowhere .

    A few recovery tools I would consider essential for sand include shovel, air compressor/tyre deflator, and maybe some MaxTrax. As far as driving techniques are concerned. Sand and mud = momentum. As soon as you have lost momentum (purposefully moving in the direction you are intending to travel) stop and back out, as the more 'go juice' you give it likely the worse it will get.

    In a pinch you can let standard tyres down to 8-10 psi in sand, which will give the tyre a bigger footprint, something a setof Maxtrax (or whichever company you prefer to use for sand ramps) will make relatively short work of. Also, you should dig your pathway clear where possible to avoid losing momentum as soon as you get out from where you get stuck

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
