I guess I belong to 2 fourms now.

We went from being a truck/minivan to a truck/jeep family last night. I still have my old Chevy 1988 2500 4x4 but we traided in the minivan for a 2005 white Rubicon Unlimited. I sure did like driving that home. My wife wants to hit the beach (Texas has miles of deep sand 4x4 only beaches) this weekend but I'm going "it's going to get somthing rusty", what a wenie posser I feel like! I dont mind beating up the truck but I do need to get over that new car hangup. The plan is it is her daily driver till we put her into somthing new again and I get it as a toy.

Take a screwdriver and make a nice long scratch in the driver's side. It will hurt for a few minutes, but you'll start feeling better as soon as you get to the beach. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Before you go wheeling in the sand... then spray the running gear and underside with PAM. Then have fun... and flush with fresh water when you get done... it should minimize any rust formation.

I painted everything under my jeep when it was new.. then I spent a lot of time on the beach with no problems.

What did you paint it with? How did you prep it?

Chris always paints all of his undercarriage with "Pats brand boy butter". [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
Just ask him about it.
