I wrote this HUGE suggestion then retracted it once I read that you have gotten your fill of dirt, rocks, and mud and now you just wanna play in the sand. Jeeps are good at dirt, rocks and mud and kinda suck in sand. Other than that, welcome to jeeping!

If you wanna play in the sand mildly, then your gonna at least have to get recovery gear 1st and formost. ARB's airbags work well for sand recovery, tow straps, ( a winch might be to heavy). Your gonna want a full cage to. A cb and a 4 pt harness to keep you inside if you should roll it. You dont have to get major hp out of your motor but will want to regear it so you have better power. A good set of spare sand tires will do wonders as well.
maybe get this instead if you only wanna play in the sand.

I drive my Jeep in sand regularly and think it does just fine. It's more of just learning how to drive in the sand and you can never compare a Jeep with a sandrail. I grew up going to Glamis so it's probably an advantage for me. If you want to try your Jeep at Glamis My dad and I will be out Martin Luther weekend with our Jeeps, more than welcome to join us.

Thanks for all the advice guys! I'm ashamed to say that I after I tore it down and did a few things to it that it has sat in my garage untouched for months now. I think I have about 10 miles on her in 8 months now

I have it almost ready to monstaline the tub I just have to get motivated to actually do it. I have all the supplies now and no more excuses. I think I'm going to take this semester off and finish her up so I can enjoy it a little bit. After I line the tub I just have to do is open a bunch of boxes and put her back together!

If anyone wants to get a crash course in monstalining with me let me know! The beer and cocktails are always free!

I forgot to mention that I want this Jeep to be good in the sand. I have dreams of hauling it up to Pismo and other dune areas. I have had my fill of trails, rock crawling and mud. I don't know what trails look like here so I might change my mind but the sand is what I'm thinking.
Here's a video from last year, not the greatest but me and two other Jeeps at Glamis.

Click the link above the missing video and it'll take you to it. I don't know why it doesn't show up here.
