Great pics. Thanks for the good news on your trip. It brought back fond memories of our ride at Hatteras in the Outer Banks of NC this summer.
Glad to be of help. There's just nothing like getting out there with a nice chunk of beach to yourself. So relaxing, and then knowing the RL will get you back off the beach makes it even more funlowrider90 said:VaVet96, your trip to NC had a great deal to easing my pain (whether the ridge could perform on sand. Your pics were a help. I think the sand on the beach in NC was a lot softer than what I was on. thanks
I assume you pushed the VTM-4 lock button? Once you do, it's locked. Not saying that would have helped in your situation, but there's no "getting it to lock" Either it is or it isn't.CEIS said:Floating on the sand is one thing, trail riding is another.
I put my ridge to the test on a good incline with loose footing. I can't say that I was pleased with the outcome. In D1 with a VERY light pedal & I still couldn't get the diff to lock - I think I would have spun for awhile and dug some trenches.
Keep testing the limits of what you can do with your truck on various terrain. That is the only way to get comfortable with what it can do.
So what do you call all of the shore lines from Ptown, north truro, fisher beach, ryder beach, duck harbor beach, chequessett beach etc. etc. they are all facing west.Toobuku said:By the way, this is for Tex Ridge... Unless my internal compass is off, Lowriders picture was taken at sunrise! I don't think Cape Cod has a west facing shoreline. just an observation!
Looks like a Brittany Spaniel.go4bal said:What kind of dog is that in the photos?

As one who has driven many vehicles on the beaches of Nantucket (including a 1961 IH Scout!), I was wondering how the RL would fare, especially since it has no low range transfer case. It's good to know it can handle it well. In my experience the best were V8-powered Ford Expeditions and Dodge Durangos, as long as the tires were deflated to 13-15 psi.lowrider90 said:I have to tell that my RTL is as good as any 4 wheel drive I have driven over sand.
