You don't need undercoating. That may do more harm than good nowadays with new factory applied body materials. Standard a/t tire is good enough. I recommend a tow package. Not because you are towing anything. Because of the transmission cooler that comes with the package. Driving on the beach at low speed and at second or third gear you want to stay cool. Fire extinguishers are required equipment because of transmission fires.
