Man, I can't wait to get back down there this April. We took our Commander out at Oregon Inlet and it was a fantastic ride in the deep sand. What's even better is that the OBX is freaking awesome in the Winter, not many people are down there and it's great weather.

I was wondering how the commander acted out on the sand? Or was it very restricted driving speed, etc. I may have to get it out on the sands this summer.

Deep lose sand was a little tricky, I didn't even let air out of the tires b/c I don't have a compressor yet... so I would say it could be even better with low air pressure.

It's great on the sand. Just drop your tire pressure to 18 or 20 psi. In the deep, loose sand 4WD Low seems to work the best. If you don't use 4 low, you will at least want to completely shut off the traction/stability control by holding the button in for about 5 seconds. That will keep it from working overtime while you are out there.

Great pics, gdiesel.

Since you and several others mention the OBX, I wanted to point out that beach driving on the Outer Banks is under attack from enviromental groups and we have reached a critical stage in this fight.

Southern Environmental Law Center, representing Defenders of Wildlife and the
National Audubon Society recently filed for a preliminary injunction in U. S. District Court requesting that beach driving be banned at the most popular recreational areas of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. The hearing is scheduled for April 3, 2008.

If the requested injunction is issued the following areas would be
closed to all ORV use which equals no recreation
all of Oregon Inlet,
all of Cape Point,
all of South Beach,
all of Hatteras Inlet,
all of North Ocracoke and
all of Ocracoke Inlet.

These areas would be closed to all beach driving
all year long. If this were to happen it would not only impact those of us here that enjoy visiting the Outer Banks and using our vehicles for recreational purposes, it will have a tremendous impact on the good people that live there and depend on visitors for their livelyhood. There are already massive areas of the park set aside exclusively for wildlife. Now these groups want to take away what is left.

Please check out the Outer Banks Preservation Association at obpa.org for more info and please consider joining and if possible an additional contribution as they and other members of the Cape Hatteras Access Preservation Alliance are incurring huge legal costs to preserve our rights.
