    Not for me. I may be doing a Death Valley trip this fall, though.

    The Destiny Dakota AT worked so well floating on the bottomless sand beach, that after a half mile at 35 psi, so the truck wouldn't need to work as hard, and so I would be able to drive easier on the beach dry sand, I only dropped them to 20 psi and they did great!

    20 psi in 265/75-16 DuraTracs worked very well for me on the sand around Moab. Floated fine, and smoothed out some rougher sections nicely, all with stock suspension.

    Haven't been to Moab, yet! The desert sand I have been on is different than beach sand of east-coast Baja. Perhaps it's that in addition to the sand, there is tiny rocks, corral, and crushed shells which seem to make that kind of sand less compact-able and harder to 'float' on?
