Did someone sell the Trooper discussion with its 11000+ messages away from this forum?
I usually check the Trooper discussion daily, now its gone.
My daughter's tribe and I will be building a boat this spring. We will make a kit ahead of time then asemble it on a Friday night and race it with 9 dads and 10 daughters aboard under paddle power Saturday morning. The boat is modelled after this boat plan:

Just jammed up at work. Barely getting time to read the forums anymore, even at night with work/kids/etc.
Still have my '99 Trooper, but TOD is shot, I get 4wd hi and low though...and about 9 mpg even when 4wd is off.
I am trying to decide if it is worth the $$ to fix it. It is just a station car and I use it in the snow. I don't have confidence to take it more than an hour away right now. I figure if I am going to get 9 MPG I might as well get a Titan or F250. Right now I am not doing much with it.
#137 of 139 Beach trip in North Carolina
Apr 22, 2007 (9:53 pm)
Hello Isuzu 4X4 people, I would like to make a sand trip on the beach in NC this year. I have not done a significant amount of deep sand driving since 1986 when I got stuck for 12 hours in the dessert of Western WA. So, I would like to have the safety in numbers of a group trip.
Should I get 275/70R16 tires for staying on top of the sand better?
Should I first pick a date and place before asking if anyone is interested?
At Uwharrie, all that is needed is to drive through the camps once and you can arrange a group trip to one of the 4X4 trails there and the other drivers will go to great effort to help you. I wonder if that same friendly hospitality exists at the beach?

Hmm interesting. I haven't been to Uwharrie in a while. We need to plan another trip down there!
I'd be up for some beach driving in NC, as a passenger since I don't have a suitable off-road SUV anymore.

The best tip I know is keep only 10 lbs of air pressure in your tires and you will be good to go on the sand. You should either plan on taking a compressor and a good tire guage or know where to get aired back up nearby before hitting the road as you don't want to drive any distance with the low air pressure. It is amazing how well this works.
