Nice photos. Going to Pismo with the wifey for the anniversary, just want to drive on the beach since I'm there and in California it's a unique experience. Prob stay in the compact sand near the surf, eat a sandwich at a beach in the bed of the truck, and turn around. I've been told we are not allowed to get stuck haha.

Also do you think I should keep it in auto LSD? Or just turn trac controll off all together.

Auto LSD will put power to the traction tire if the other tire spins to a point where they both spin the same... Otherwise, if you shut off the VSC, you loose TRAC and AUTO LSD which means if one tire begins to slip, you are toast, as the other one will do nothing.

The real magic is if you drop your air pressure (all 4 tires) and you may have a fun time!

Just back from a mix of dirt, sand, and rock in Utah with a new set of Load C DuraTracs. 20 psi was a good, general purpose pressure. I could've gone lower, but there was no need. Traction wasn't an issue, and the lower pressure took the edge off of washboard roads.

I bought a compressor so I wasn't concerned about limping to an air point, but based on how my truck felt aired down, I wouldn't drive more than 40 mph on the road, and not for long distances.

Final verdict, leave auto LSD on or off?

Off unless you lose traction in the back, and you are a 2WD.

Press the button (for AUTO LSD) and your rear limited slip goes up to the next level of spin control.

If you are a 4WD, then just go to H4 when you loose rear end traction.

Not for me. I may be doing a Death Valley trip this fall, though.

New Pep Boys tires worked great in sand... Baja California's Gulf Coast

The Destiny Dakota AT worked so well floating on the bottomless sand beach, that after a half mile at 35 psi, so the truck wouldn't need to work as hard, and so I would be able to drive easier on the beach dry sand, I only dropped them to 20 psi and they did great!

20 psi in 265/75-16 DuraTracs worked very well for me on the sand around Moab. Floated fine, and smoothed out some rougher sections nicely, all with stock suspension.

Haven't been to Moab, yet! The desert sand I have been on is different than beach sand of east-coast Baja. Perhaps it's that in addition to the sand, there is tiny rocks, corral, and crushed shells which seem to make that kind of sand less compact-able and harder to 'float' on?
