  1. Hello All, So I went out with my to kids this weekend to Glamis for Easter weekend and it happen that on Thursday I got stuck on the back side of Olds with my sandrail. I was worried because it was just us three a 11 and 15 year old and my group was not coming in until Thursday night. Two jeeps happened to come across and they helped me. What a relief that was. I didn't realize at the time that the sand was really soft and that since my trans gearing is too tall I had to be in first gear and pretty much on the gas. At that point I wish I had a jack on the sandcar. So I want to ask if you guys recommend one that works well. I was thinking of a Hi-Lift jack since it has some good options and some MaxTrax boards to help me next time. What do you guys think? Thank you in advance.

    Best Jack to lift sandrail in the Dunes

    Thanks socaldmax . Yeah I did the bump the starter in reverse and that did the job for a few inches but then I did a wussy back-out and got stuck again. The issue was it was just us three and I hate to rely on anyone although I know most folks will help as they all did. I would just like to be prepared if its us three again.

    Take into consideration the length of it also. I purchased a 8 inch unfortunately I didn't realized it was to small so I had to make a box so that it can sit on top of it. They also sell a 10 inch.
  5. Man I like this car! Really nice.

    New or “freshened” 2d?

    Yup this is the one thing to take into consideration when buying used. I purchased my 2D from a guy and I was worried. He gave me the phone number to the builder and he confirmed it was all good and ready to go. I felt more comfortable after that my trans works great; Just as he promised. But my gears are too tall. The trans was geared for a V8 not V6. I guess I need to upgrade to a V8. If could do it again I spend try to get a HV2 for a full reverse.

    RZR vs. X3 vs. Sandrail

    I was in the same predicament not to long ago. I purchased a RZR Trubo 2017 xp4 and then 6 months later I purchased the sandrail. The RZR sat in the garage for like 3 months new . I always wanted a sandrail but since most of the guys I ride with had rzr I decided to go the rzr route. I wish would have purchased the sandrail first I would have saved like $6000.00 in depreciation cash after I sold the RZR(My used Mendi 2D was 5k. I kick myself for getting the RZR first!). I also feel that a sandrail gives you the option to upgrade stuff like trans, engine, etc.. Since I do most of my fab work its fairly cheap. The other big factor is power. The sandrail can go up anything pretty much and if it doesn't then you can upgrade to V8. My car is a V6 and its great. The sandrail feels way safer than the SXS period. It also has the ability to slide which is fun; the SXS not too much. Purchase the sandrail then get a 2 seater rzr this is what I am doing next for my daughter and wife. I started to teach my kids how to drive the sand rail so they can also have fun on it too. If you see a sandrail that you like and the price is good with a decent Engine and trans and it fits in your trailer/toy hauler get it. If you dont like it sell it for the about the same price and get a SXS. Also; I go to glamis most time but I also take my sandrail to TDS and it pretty much goes everywhere that the jeeps make it. One more thing; If you like to go fast then sandrail all the way. Good luck.

    I asked the same question last summer and Pro-Am shifts really smooth compared to the one I had before and the one I had on my other beam car.
  11. Hello All, I have a buddy that is selling this toy hauler and rzr(15k will not include the rzr for you crazy folks, Ask about the RZR im sure he can maybe give you a deal). The toy hauler is clean inside well taken care of. No issues generator works good no delamination that I can remember. Here are some pictures of the outside. Hit him up you will not be disappointed.

  15. Hello guys, I would like to add a parking brake to the sandrail. Do you guys know if they sell a lever that will connect to the brake lines? Or some other method. I currently always put the car in 1st when transporting and I would not like to do that. If you have a picture can you post it please.

  22. Hello Guys, Do you think my V6 3.2 naturally aspirated buggy will do fine with 15x7 on 33's? Has anyone ran this setup on V6 car. Im hoping It will also allow me to put the car in the trailer with the paddles. I will definitely upgrade down the line to maybe a stock 5.3 V8 but that will be a few seasons down the line. Thanks.
