The last time I drove on the beach was a few years ago at NC outer Banks. We had an 06 LJ, loved that Jeep. I didn’t air down an just had 265/75/16 Duratracs. When we got there a minivan and a Honda car was both stuck right at the entrance. We drove around and zipped the windows out. I asked if they needed help. The folks in the minivan said yes. I positioned the LJ so the front tow hook was to the rear of the van. I hooked the strap on the Jeep and handed the other end to the guy. No place to hook. The rear hatch was up and he hooked it to the latch. The guy looked at me I told him I wouldn’t. He said try it, after telling him I wasn't responsible, I pulled it out. I guess the Honda paid big $ to a tow truck. It was a great trip and driving on the beach was a highlight.
