    It would do great if you have some good tires and know how to drive the 2wd

    mud tires are actually not that good for sand, your better off with all terrains. the mud tires are built to dig in for traction, where as on the sand you need to ride on top of the sand. hence letting your air out.

    Thus neatly explaining why the stock Duncraps actually do quite well on sand at 18 psi. I was able to drive up, down and around dunes like this one without challenge. My total for the day was about 10 miles.

    i dont doubt it. letting your air out helps immensely, but in some real soft sand your better off with non mud tires.

    yeah ive driven my truck on the sand on my all terrains full psi with no problem, but it would have been a whole lot easier in low psi.

    the stock dunflops are great in the sand. i havnt had a problem yet. The KM2 are ok just done gas it very hard or you will just dig yourself a nice big hole.
