Even Jeeps Get Stuck on the Beach in These Conditions

We’ve all had good laughs at the visitors who try to drive their little sedans on the beach—without a permit—and get their vehicles stuck in the soft sand. But even 4×4 vehicles can run into trouble this time of year.

It turns out that sand and ice don’t make for good driving conditions, as two Jeep drivers recently learned on Southampton area beaches. At least one of the two needed a tow truck to get moving again.

Having four-wheel drive doesn’t make you invincible. And you must employ a few tricks to have a successful sojourn, such as letting the air out of the tires, down to around 15 psi.

Don’t be like these people.
