Best Beach Truck

I've owned vehicles in the past that I've used for surf fishing..( i.e. Nissan, Jeep)..but my 2012 SR5 V6 4x4 is without a doubt the best. Incredible difference from the first time I drove on the sand from previous vehicles. Just air down and go. The power, ground clearance, ride, etc. all great.

I didn't want to have to modify anything up front to have a front mount rod/cooler rack so I went with the receiver mount for the rear. I had always had a front mounted rod rack but this arrangement works fine. Holds 72 qt cooler and 8 rods. Trade off on lowering the tailgate when its on but no big deal.

I was just up at the Outer Banks last week with my truck.

I made myself a little surf fishing basket before I went up there It worked well, held my 4 surf rods and coolers just fine. Got an aluminum basket from Harbor Freight for $75 and bolted some 2" PVC pipes to it. Unfortunately, I didn't get to do as much surf fishing as I wanted. Only got out there two times. We got a few puppy drum and a croaker.

I did go on a kayak fishing trip with Rob Alderman (Fish militia) down at OI. We got out on the water at 6:30 and fished til about 11. I personally caught 5 specks (2 keepers), 2 Flounder, A lizard fish (...bleh), and a puppy drum on the paddle back in.

It was a good trip...got engaged up there haha. Popped the question to my girlfriend up on a sand dune in Swan Beach north of Corolla. She freaked..and she said yes haha.

Congrats !! Looks like you had a great time and the "Catch of a Lifetime" too!! Great pics and nice improv on the surf rack. Simple and functional.

Glad you guys had a good time down here.

If you haven't already, please consider joining one, or both, of these groups that fight the good fight to keep the beaches open to responsible ORV access. It's an ongoing battle where the stakes are very high. Plus there is a lot of information and support as well as great people involved.

Thanks

Thanks, yep for sure.

I actually already support the OBPA, I sport an OBPA sticker on the back of the truck too. I also wrote my senator recently to support the new bill.

Shooting for Sunday, Sept 1st 2013 (Labor day weekend). We've toured a few venues and we've got tours booked every weekend (2 this weekend) for the next month. Once we pick a venue we'll set the date in stone. We found a photographer and DJ. Now we're just dealing with the fact that everyone has an opinion on how things should be done (...her mother in particular).
