Can I take a 1999 Tacoma Prerunner TRD in beach sand?

I have been told that I can and that I can't by different people but I want to make sure.

I have a 05 Tacoma 4X4 TRD which I'm sure will have no problem in the sand.

But what about my friends 99 Tacoma Prerunner?


What are some techniques to driving in sand? Besides don't stop in soft sand.

OKAY... So thanks for all the information but I keep being told don't stop. What if I want to like chill on the beach and park the truck? Can I not do that?

How much air should I let out of the tires?

Depends on the driver.

I've been driving on soft sand at the beach for over 3 years now with nothing but 2wds. Haven't been stuck... yet.

Just use common sense. Don't stop in soft sand, keep your momentum up, don't turn your wheels if you can avoid it. Once you stop moving (stuck), don't bother hitting the gas, your just gonna dig it in.

Be mindful of the size of the tires, tall and skinny-no worky.
