If you have an office garage already, I would suggest to put your old 10-car garages to a good use
 
1) [OPTIONAL] Find the Sandking XL (4 doors) and store it as your personal vehicle
2) 9:00-10:00 AM: Navigate to the parking lot near the Sandy Shores Airfield and LS customs
3) Order your own Sandking XL or take any from the street.
4) Drive up to the hill and then back to the parking lot. 
- The path doesn't matter - the camera angle does. Make sure to  keep the camera AWAY from the parking lot, especially when approaching the road
- Use the radar to navigate
- Keep your speed low
 
5) Slow down before approaching the road and then turn the camera to the parking lot.
 
6.A) If you don't see the customized Yellow/Blue Sandking XL, repeat the process starting from 4; Try to drive further away from the road this time.
6.B) If you see the customized Sandking, DO NOT drive it to your garage
Instead - steal it and drive it to the Los Santos Customs, just ahead of the parking lot.
Buy a tracker for $2000. The car will automatically take a free slot in one of your garages.
 
7) Repeat the process starting from 4; Sandkings will stop spawning at 17:00
 
This method will get you roughly one high-selling Sandking per minute with no rank restriction and no effort.
 
Buying a tracker is the key here, you save a lot of time by NOT driving your car to your garage manually. Also, you don't have to buy a specific garage like other guides suggest you to do - you can fill all of your garages with this method regardless of their locations.
 
It's possible to sell one Sandking XL every 40 minutes (~17K-18K depending on the variant), you can do it within a mission cooldown.

I'm honestly surprised this is still a thing. I used to do that in like 2014 when it was real popular. I'm happy to see it's still a thing, though! It's a great way to stock up on Sandkings and catching up on Netflix shows. :p

I suggest doing the mission Chopper Tail as the timer is stuck to 12PM. You can farm as long as you want. Then finish the mission for easy money. I'm 100% sure that still works. Get a Sandking, find a NPC custom one, drive down the road across the street from that survival at the end of the airstrip and drive in. That's the one I use. Other garages nearer like the clothing shop is good. I would spend a day driving them in the city to my 10-car garages cause it was worth it back then. Now...eh....not so much, to be honest, but still a great way to make EASY money. It can get boring after a while but having a stock of cars to sell is always good.

The only problem with sandkings is the distance to large garages to save paying for the tracker so it's not going to be worth your time. For me 15k.. It's never really been worth the effort.

^ 15k for the 1 minute effort.

It's almost the same as Hostile Takeover in a less amount of time.

 

I really don't understand the complaints.

Yeah, this and the Sentinels, anytime I pass or fancy just plodding around on contact missions, I always nab one or 2, always reliable once you have a couple of tries... $14.5m in car sales so far, no dupes, only Ballers, Felons, and tuned NPC cars, a couple of bad purchases have been sold on too, but mainly tuned street/stealable cars... Certainly adds up...

Best method, best customized vehicle. 100% guaranteed spawn if you're on your own in a session (nobody else to screw up the spawning unless you're in the same car). Even though I have millions, I still sell a sandking whenever I have the time. That 17-18K  is a nice bundle of cash that helps fund future repair costs of sourced I/E vehicles if I'm being sloppy.

 

That and sentimental reasons. That garage has been my I/E garage before I/E was even a thing. Can't shut down that business down now.

Yes, the most expensive bunker location makes the farming even easier.

 

im doing just research atm, while i sell a sandking every 48 minutes...rest of the time I`m afk.

 

Drive with your sandking outside the bunker at 9 o clock, and drive down the road to lsc like shown in the latest video. sell the spawned sandkijng

and go back to the bunker surveilance afk.

Can you still sell them? Tried to sell mine, sell option was absent so I blew up the 3 I had left (make space for other cars). Unsure why I didn't have the sell option...

Yes, I can sell the Sandkings. What exactly is the problem? Do you see any message?

I had a game related bug with some Sandkings and even a couple of Dubsta2s earlier this year.

I had a tooltip in the upper left corner pop up when I pulled up to LSC saying "This vehicle cannot be modified." It's the same tooltip that pops up when you pull up to LSC on a bicycle.

I ended up destroying the Sandkings and placing proximity mines on the Dubsta2s/parking them in the usual spawn location at the Burton LSC. Terrible, I know.

On PS4 the Sandkings still spawn from 9am to 5pm. Just drive slow down the hill and watch one spawn. The 2k tracker cost is no problem as it is such easy money when selling. I do Fortified in SS and then sell a Sandking for an easy 50k in about 12 minutes. Fetching the Sandkings is like a mission i can do while waiting for vip job cool downs.

I had the same issue with some ballers (no dupes, just picked up from the streets into my garage) the last months. "this car can not be modified"  .

 

I thought maybe its a bugged slot in your garage?

Sandking XLs is my daily bread. Start every game session by selling one. Good start.

Farm/spawn one for sale in freeroam if its Dolly Parton time (0900-1700). Use time locked mission if I dont wanna do anything else. 6 car garage = 108K + cash if finish mission.

Do value a small and positive cash flow. It adds up to millions in the long run :)

Hopefully this method will never be removed; although not the best way to make money, it is good if you want a little bit of cash here and there.

For the times they spawn? It's In-game time right?

Nice income supplement.

I used to do this when Felon GTs started spawning back in the early PS3 days when money making options were lower.

As soon as the started spawning I'd fill up a 10 car garage with them and then sell every 48 minute for 9500 each. This is obviously more lucrative.

If you are going to pay $2000 for the tracker so that you don't have to Sri e them to your garages, you may as well get the two apartments close to where the sentinel spawns, and farm them instead

It will make you more money than the sandking plus tracker

But, the better way of farming sale vehicles is, the dubsta 2, it sell for around $5000 more than a sandking

I can fill a 10 car garages with the dubsta 2 in 10 minutes

I farm them at the LSIA MAX, and have the 2 10 car garages near there, plus Alta st and another 10 car near La Mesa

Farm them at weekends, sell them during the week

I do the I/E sales too, warehouse by LSIA

Source a car, sell a car, repeat, repeat again, sell a dubsta

Lots can be earned in an hour

Most I have done (in a solo public session) is over $4,000,000 In a weekend using that method

I'm trying to spawn a dubsta using the MC method with crewmates, but always fail for some reason :/

Do you spawn it at Burton LSC?

I can get it to spawn at Burton, la mesa and LSIA

What platform are you on?

I know a fast method, once the first one spawns in, to fill a garage being LSIA lsc within 10 minutes

They spawn between 9am and 5pm game time

When trying to spawn them, you need to go far enough away, but, not too far

Can't help you spawn them, I'm on xb1

For guides to find them, find The Dutch Queens videos on YouTube, they are very helpful and informative, and, she is also a member on here, she uses the ps4, but, it is the same for all platforms

Getting the first to spawn is the hardest part
