Land Rover - VS - Powerstroke!

What a thrill - last night, drove out to "the cove" to concentrate on work a little - as I drove up - there is a Land Rover Discovery - angled down towards the Bay, all 4 just a spinning!

The cove is this little "cove" at the bay - maybe 500 yards long max. Just a little sandy beach used to be a marina but a huricane in the 50's filled it all in with sand.

Since then - its one of those "out fo the way" places to drop the kayaks, relax - not alot of attention.

Well, I eased the Ford down the sand road. Locked my hubs and pulled up about 20' to his nose. I stepped out just a laughing! I couldnt help it. Poor guy - he was stuffing logs, boards, driftwood, everything he could find under those Land Rover highway tires - he was burried.

I offered him a tug - he gladly accepted. I noticed he had a new paper tag on the front! He just bought his Disco - and burried it in the sand!

Hooked a chain, locked the front end, dropped her in reverse and started to pull. Yanked him out of the sand better then I thought I would!

Old Powerstroke showed up that Disco!

as long as you dont break the tires loose that SD is golden on the sand, just dont spin em cuz they sink like the titanic!!
i have 37x 14.50 bfg km2's and they do great on the sand at 20 psi but it definatly cant go were my old 4runner could with a/t's
Its all about knowing what your set up can do and not taking it to far..... Aparently his set up couldn't do much lol
