    Well my truck currently has NO rear suspension so you're a step ahead of me on that one hahaha. Once its rolling I'll still have quite the checklist if im going to make it.

    -Driveshaft
    -Rear spring rate
    -Supercharger
    -Tuner
    -Front Gears
    -Comms
    -Intercom
    -Lights
    -Fuel System


    And I'll want to get at least 2 or 3 test trips on it before I take it to the dunes

    IMO the big dunes are almost easier cause you can have more momentum. in the small choppy dunes in a truck its hard cause you cant haul ass. but in the small dunes by where we are camping trucks in 2wd are fine. they are perfect for trucks.

    skinny pedal and air down.

    always stop with your truck pointing down or you will get stuck
    dont slam on your breaks to stop. the little pile of dirt that gathers in front of your tires by doing that is enough to get you stuck if in 2wd.
    momentum wins.
