Starting in 2016 the new “Beach Buggy” is the Mitsubishi Outlander. A 2016 SE. The pilot had 8″ of ground clearance, the Outlander has 8.5″.
First trip on the beach with the Outlander, it was “Outlandish”. Dropped the pressure to 14 PSI, put it in “Locked” mode and it handled soft sand and ruts without any issues at all.
On the Outlander I have the Rac A Rod for transporting the rods. It has rubber rod holders that treat the reels a lot better than the Rod Vault plus the foam holder for clamping the upper portion of the rod is another nice upgrade. http://www.racarod.com
Long Island Beach Buggy Association, I joined in 2016. They do a lot for the beach access and caring for the beaches I ride on Long Island
These work great, I put them on, pressure drops, ready to drive on the beach.
Turn adjusting screw with a 5/32” allen wrench counter clockwise until it is even with the end of the body tube. This will set pressure at the lowest end of the adjustment range. Every complete turn clockwise will increase pressure approximately 3psi for the 15-40psi range
Every complete turn clockwise will increase pressure approximately 1.5psi for the 5-20psi range
Fishing SUV for 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015:
2009 Honda Pilot, 4 WD
Had lots of room and handled the beach great! Has the lock feature which as of the end of 2015 have only used one time. Served me very well. Hit 110,000 miles in November 2015. I droped the pressure to ~12-15 PSI
Had two Hunter rod racks on the roof.
My brother-inlaw made me a great stainless steel rod rack with space for a cooler. When not using that I have a small rod rack in the front .
