    I was on the beach all weekend with my prerunner. Had no problems what so ever. Actually had to pull a F150 4X4 out of the sand bc he dug in too deep. Its really easy to drive on sand. And i have stock dunlop AT20 tires.

    What if his gay likes it rough?
    I'd suggest you go with someone the first time, till you get the feel of it. I see a few 2wd's on the beach, not many. I always run 4hi till I get close to the water.

    I've only gotten my truck stuck on the beach once, and I drive soft sand regularly. Just use your head, air down and have some decent tires and you'll be fine.

    FWIW, A friend of mine used to run on the dunes and he would use old worn out street tires that he would buy for $5.00 each. He aired down to 5 psi, or less, and ran awsome.....I thought he was nuts untill I tried it my self. The guys I talk to that frequent the dunes say that a wide street type tire gives better flotation than a MT or AT on the sand.

    No doubt, tire psi is the most important.. Personally, I havent tried an MT in the sand, but I know my BFG AT's sucked ass, even when aired down to 10 psi. If I wasnt jumping back and forth on hard pack, I would have gone down more. I was just throwing my experiance out there to see if anyone else had heard/done the same.

    Well, If you ever feel like it, and have some bald tires laying around...give it a try.
    When I first saw your truck I wondered how those tires would do in the sand.. Nice to see that they work well. :proposetoast:

    I did it again. Got tired of paying truck payments and gas and traded in for a 2015 Honda Accord Sport since I enjoyed my 2013 Sport so much.
    You guys saying air down the tires: are you supposed to air down all four tires or just the rear tires?
