Gday all

I have just recently joined the patrol club.
My first 4x4 after owning lowered commodores my whole life.
I have bought a 2000 GU 4.2.
Has hi flow turbo, top mount intercooler and 3 inch exhaust.
It is running a 3inch lift with 315 x 75 Mickey thompson MTZ'"s.
4.3 diff ratios and front ARB air locker.
Have only been out on one trip up the back of brunswick (WA) to play in the mud
and had a bloody ball.
I am looking for some advice on tyre pressure for soft sand.
Any beach driving for that matter.
Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
I am hoping to put some pics up of the new love of my life shortly.
Once I figure out how to go about it.

Cheers
Dan

Try 18psi first, if that doesn't work well keep dropping it by 2 psi and try it again.

I have Maxxis 751's and drop them to about 20-24 psi. works a treat and even tried getting bogged for the kids sake (they wanted to see a bogged car and use max trax, anyway) tried 2WD and gunning it in 1st, but it just kept driving out. Even dug holes for the tyres to sit in and still just drove out.

I have 33" Mickey Thompson 4rib ATZ's and went up to Lancelin dunes just recently. I put the tyres on 17psi all round first go and didnt have a problem. They bagged out very well and floated over the soft Lancelin sand no probs. There more an agressive A/T tyre but just gives you an idea.

As the others have said, start at 18-20 and go from there. I found with my lwb maverick td42 i go straight to 14-16 otherwise the front wants to plough through the sand instead of riding over the top. I'm running 31x10.5x15s though.
