When 4whelling on sand dunes

What is the best or most used setup with 4hi, 4lo, A-trac, auto LSD on sand dunes? Just wandering I have not had my 2011 TRD OR in sand.

I want to apoligize for the responses over me. Jeez folks? It's ok to help I would say let air out according to the depth of sand. It depends on the situation. I would release in 5 psi increments and see how she moves. Make sure you utilize an air compressor powered off your rear power outlets to help fill up after soft sand conditions. When returning to firmer areas you will want to firm up your tires. Be prepared and your time will be better enjoyed. Right now I'm dealing with snow and ice so I envy your dilmena.

You can't run ALSD when in 4wd. TRAC acts like ALSD when in 4wd but it isn't as aggressive.

I will stay in 4Hi at all times and run all four tires between 8 to 15 pounds depending on the sand depth. If youre worried about losing you bead theres a ton of easy ways to remount the tire. Always worked good for me though
