Took my Big Bend out to the 4x4 beach today, and I ran into a couple that had an Outer Banks Sas while I was out there! They were kind enough to let me snap a picture.

The 2.3 auto combo performed far beyond expectation on the soft sands in the Outer Banks. There is little to no turbo lag, and more than enough grunt to turn the 33” tires on demand. I’ve driven a few different vehicles out here from Jk Wranglers, Tj Wranglers, 6.0 and V10 Excursions, and a 3.5 equipped F-150. The Bronco felt right at home, unlike anything else I’ve ever driven. Using the Sand G.O.A.T. mode, the increased throttle response was noticeable and helpful. I couldn’t sense an ounce of wheel spin.

The 285/75/17 Toyo AT3’s fit without any rubbing, and at 25 psi seemed to float over the sand. My BB is a base, with 3.73 axles and no locking differentials.

Would anyone be interested in a Bronco Take-over sometime next summer?? It’s probably my favorite thing to do in the OB! We could organize food and maybe a small giveaway. If you’ve never been out there, I would HIGHLY recommend it.

Absolutely on board with a get-together, especially if waves and sand are involved!

My wife and I and her kids (well, not actually kids anymore. They’re 24 and 28) and some other family vacation in Duck for the last several years.
I’m waiting on a 2door OBX 2.3AT eruption green mid package so if I should see it before our June vacation, I’d love to run up to Corolla and on the sand for a meetup.

Count me in! SouthEastern North Carolinian here and I have plans to take mine to the Outerbanks in the Spring! Me and a few friends of mine who have Broncos are actually planning on a trip up to Corolla then working our way back South to Cape Lookout and doing a Camping Trip on the beach. The more Broncos the better!

I'll be there tomorrow for the week. Hopefully I will bring my 2DR EG OBX to Duck next summer.

Definitely one of the places on my list. I was there the week before Columbus Day. I was hoping to take my Bronco this year, but build slipped from September to October. Built the week after I got back and delivered on 11/4. So yeah I’m game.
