I know things can just happen. After reading most if not all of the posts in this thread - on the face it seems that someone "rode the clutch" at some point and burned it up to point it decided to fail while you were on the beach.

I grew up at the jersey shore, when I started we did not even need permits to ride on the beach ( yes I am old ). Still have family at the jersey shore, but the outter banks of NC are our favorite beaches now. I know I am going to hear a lot of grief about this but to be honest, most of the time I drive up onto the beach without adjusting the tire pressure at all. Only during the dog days of summer ( hot august 100 degree days ) when the sand has been cooking all summer, do I lower the tire pressure. I just sold a 2004 Rubicon 5 speed manual with 145,000 miles and the original clutch. My 3 children learned how to drive on that jeep, and learned how to drive stick on that jeep. Additionally 2 girlfriends learned how to drive stick on that jeep and all five learned how to drive on the beach in that jeep and 145,000 miles later I sold the jeep with the original clutch.

Over the years a lot of people I know destroyed their clutch on the beach. On the other hand a lot of people didn't.

Best of luck !

Today I am headed back to the dealership and I am heated. After they replaced the clutch fly wheel, the dealership realized the battery was dead because it still would not start.

How much did it cost? My local dealer actually sent me a "4X4 Basics" e-mail, seems they encourage it...responsibly.

I don't really know what the beach is called but if you are familiar with beaches by the border of Maryland and Delaware. Right by the inlit bridge off of rt 1.

Yes, it was legal for me to drive there.

It cost around 1801.33 for a clutch, flywheel, starter, battery, and labor.

By the way, they never got the jeep started. The dealership just went straight for the clutch.
