Default Set up for light 4w driving

Hi all,

I am looking to set up my GC for light 4w driving mainly on the beach. This is my plan.

- chemical rust proofing
- Murchison lift kit
- Uneek skid plate and Mopar axle protector
- Uneek tow hooks

Interested in your thoughts and feedback. Cheers

really if it's just the beach underbody protection not needed apart from a skid plate. Even a lift would be debatable for light beach work.


chermical rustproofing yer just wash the underbody with a hose when you get home

Don't know about that. Have done some beach 4w driving and it was a struggle in the deeply rutted stuff. Guys that had a higher clearance just breezed through. I should clarify I mean light 4w driving and beach driving not light beach work.

Tismarg is right IMO, if you get under the car and give it a good wash, everything should be fine.
A lot of people get under body sprays applied, after the corrosive element, is already there.
If you want to apply any under body application, make sure you personally have cleaned the under body and any channels that may be already full of sand are cleaned out thoroughly.

I owned Nilrust Aust for 30 years,and developed and had a part in instigating the Aust Standard AS2662/1 -2 for vehicle rustproofing.(Application and product quality)You should at least get the underbody and and chassis rails cavities treated BEFORE going on the beach.The idiots who drive along the beach in salt water will force salt water into many areas of the vehicle that cannot be removed,eg seams.inner cavities .Plus cad plating is quickly degraded from bolts etc aluminium parts start to oxidize, To the owners , who say engine,diesel oil etc ok ,oil floats on water .put some oil on a steel plate outside in the rain,corrosion in hours.
