    I would remove them just for good measure. Mine dragged and was bending almost the whole time. You can always put them back on after a good post wash.

    And yes, as David K said, 15PSI on dry beach sand. I had to go about 8PSI on ridiculously fine sand.

    And no, I didn't bust a bead or anything on stock Sport wheels and Dunlops, even after driving through about a mile of washboard terrain.

    If you do any true off roading (rocks, ruts, etc.) those stupid designed flaps will snap off on their own! The first gen Tacomas had real rubber flaps and were fine... These second gen flaps are hard plastic and will pop off if you drop into a deep rut or over a big rock... Take them off to save them for resale or to put back on if you don't off road anymore. Since the mud flaps are the only thing on our trucks that say it's a 4WD (4x4), you could add a badge as made for the Tundra or find a trailer hitch 4X4 snap on sign. :cool:

    I'm with DelScorcho ^^^^

    I mob often in pismo and glamis with stock wheel set up. I go as low as 8 psi because I am 2wd but I would start at 12psi and if you get stuck you can still drop more to get out.

    So i took the taco on the beach this past weekend. she did pretty well until i stopped, and tried to go out of the grooves to back towards the water. yea i got stuck so i got out and lowered my tire pressure from 32ish to 25. idk if it helped or not. anyway thank god i brought my shovel took me about 20 mins to get out. but anyways i have an ome lift kit on the way, and next is to order a set of grabber at2s 285/75s. so hopefully this will help prevent me from getting stuck.
