You dont want a MT for sand work at all... Waste of time, they rip the sand up.

Also for lasting MT's wont last like an AT.

Best bet for sand and mountain work is a good AT. Look at the Coopers ST's.

Mad Slavik,

You will need to buy a spacer for the rear door mount to give greater clearance, here you can get them from ARB, cost about $80.

Geez, $80 for a spacer - I used a handful of washers @ a couple of dollars & super glued them together.

Washers and super glue on my new car, no thanks, I haven't by choice used such repair/accessory methods since I had my Honda XR 75 K5. $80 for an accessory on a $50k vehicle is not much in my opinion, and if the product were to fail then I would have a course of action against the manufacturer. Also the spacer bracket can be used to mount an extension pole light.
