Ranger leading the way. Doing what it was meant to do.

Jeep bringing up the rear! Looks like the 3rd vehicle is an older Ranger as well. Cool pic!
There was a older Tacoma and Nissan Frontier. My son was in my 99 F150 too. The Ram got stuck in the mud and my Ranger pulled it out like it was nothing. I was impressed by that.

The pic appears to be taken well inland, sure hope so corrosion wise.:shock:
I 100% second that motion. I have seen first hand what salt spray and sea water can do from driving on ocean beaches. It's unreal, rust literally forms in days or less, and once it permeates it doesn't just rinse off. If you do drive on it get a thorough wash the same day!!

Yep, the Bass were running from me.
By the way. This is the property that coined the phrase, come to Florida I have some swamp land to sell you. LOL. State had to buy it from 72000 land owners. It’s dry in the winter. Swamp land swindle.

Indeed, I once owned a '70 Maverick in which I drove through a water puddle near a boat launch ramp here. The puddle was near the wash area so I assumed it was fresh water.
In a couple months time after, the real wheel well lips started to rust badly, it then dawned on me that the "puddle" was remnants of a high tide.
I cringe when I see vids of Floridians and others driving on the beach, throwing rooster tails and such.
I was young and dumb then, slightly less dumb now however...:LOL:
