    2008 double cab, 4X4, V-6, TRD. Super White.
    OME 885 coils & front shocks, with TT top plate, Total Chaos UCA, Rear OME extended shocks, Rear TSB, Rear Toytec AAL, trimmed the saber-tooth-tiger-long-ass mud flaps. 17" XD Revolver rims, 265/75/17 BFG AT KO's. Ripped out the crappy FM Modulator & installed a PA-15-toy interface. OEM bed matt.
    Lots of variables in the sand. I have gone thru a beach section in the early morning (cool sand)in 2wd & had no problem. Then 6 hours later (hot) in 4wd & had a hard time.

    As everyone said, air down, keep your momentum. Carry a couple of shovels & recovery straps, do not go alone.
