I am invited to join a few guys going to the sand dunes, they all have sandrails, knowing I can't keep up, but stated I would go in and camp anyway with them for a few days, but I have never been in deep sand, I know I have to air down to about 15 lbs on the wrangler, but any other hints ??or should I just stay the hell out? the camp spot is about three miles in DEEP sand. my wrangler is bone stock except the tires which are goodyear wrangler MT/R's any help would be greatly appreaciated, as of this writing, hardly any offroad experience in a Jeep, only ATV;s Thanks

i was in el centro for a while, and whenever i would go to superstition or glamis i would always air down to about 10psi, on my old 30" tires with paper thin sidewalls.

my only advice is to keep it in 2HI for the whoops, unless you don't like your teeth.

have fun in glamis, i'mpretty jealous!

This is off topic but are the goodyear wrangler tires good? I am thinking about getting some when mine were out. I want a/t though instead of m/t, but the should still bee about the same.
