Tried the ridge on the beach again- just aint cut out for it. The pics you guys show of your ridges on the beach must be some very hard/puny sand. If you try stoping on a jersey beach , your history! The truck just wont go through it. It works great everywhere else off road but the sand it cannot handle. To give you an example once your stuck in the sand its like your in park giving it gas trying to go but going nowhere. I guess the computer senses all the wheels sliiping and just freaks out?? The VTM does absoultely nouthing. I would love to hear from some other jersey guys and there experiences on the beach. I dont think bigger wider tires would help b/c the computer will not let the truck get up to speed.
