    Air down to 15-20 psi plop her in 4hi and you will go anywhere :thumbsup:



    EDIT: and obey the basic rules for driving on sand, dont floor it, dont stop going up hill, and if you start to dig try to go backwards or wait until you can be pulled out, dont do anything you are not comfortable with

    Ya you wil be fine. I have been in the sand numerous times with the stock rugged trails and the smaller the tread pattern the less they dig in and also what others have said by airing down and if you stop going up hill dont try to go up but back down. Sand robs power big time so hit the hills with momentum. Just know what is on the other side though first.
    Also good to have a flag on your truck as well. I had a close call from some kids playing at the Dunes withthere trucks and they DIDNT have flags. I had come around a corner pretty fast around one of the small lakes and the kid was looking in another direction and didnt see me. Luckily I saw him and locked it up sideways and we hit but he just caught my rear tire and I caught his front passenger tire. Close call. No one was hurt.

    I see your from Oregon. I will be up that way by Saturday morning. Staying at North Bend KOA. Quad riding

    Stay out of the really loose stuff and air down.
