    Has anyone taken out a 4x2 out to the dunes? Imperial Dunes for instance. What would I need to make my 09 Dunable? Tires, Lift, intake??

    Well I took it out a little with my stock wheels and fully pumped up, and it didn't do too bad. I really think I can make it ride good with just 2wheel

    my 2wd drive handled great in the dunes.... just keep ur momentum and lower ur tire pressure to around 15.... and when u do stop, make sure to stop on a little hill slant... these trucks are beasts!

    Yeah I have a lot of experience already in the sand. Been going there since I was 13 or something.(im about to be 21 bytheway) I want to redo my bumper, I dont think a bullybar would do it. I really have no idea exactly what to do. Suspension lift, tires.

    I dont think a bullbar would be a great choice you end up losing clearance, i would pretty much reccomend what im running, N-fab light bar, im not saying go buy what i have but some adjustable coilovers and some new uca's would be an awesome upgrade for the desert fun. and dont forget the rear suspension aal and some rear resi's just an idea im ready for ocotillo wells again i should do alot better.

    To the op, your truck will do awesome in the sand - but be careful @ glamis (imperial dunes) if you've never been. I've seen dudes roll trucks out there, and it can get pretty hectic with a 4x2 in a lot of spots..

    Oh and don't try to climb old's. I couldn't get up it, even with 4x4. the taco lacks the power to pull to the top (stock anyway)
