Watch out for bowls. Any time you come up to the top of a dune be aware of whats on the other side. Also when you are climbing or decending a dune keep your wheels straight as possible cause the sand likes to grab.

Dont do it.........Other than that......dont run a k&n air cleaner because the small dust will pass through, be sure to wash your truck once your done playing to get the sand off of it and salt if you were playing off the beach. Nothing like salt and sand to rust basically anything.........you should see what some of the quad frames look like out there that arent washed frequent enough after trips to the beach. Its alot of fun but plays hell on your truck. Im sure plenty of people will post with bla bla bla my truck no problems ever. Doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure what very fine sand does to any rotating assembly........... O ya and be smart check everything out before you try something stupid, WATCH OUT FOR KIDS.

WORD. bowls are fucking scary. dont stop by or drive too close tot he edge of the bowls, sand will give out form under you and peace out. your rolling down a hill.

That would really suck. My truck on sits and I ride the quad. I dont even air down just kick the banshee out and ride. I refuse to tear up what I like to keep nice just doesnt make sense to me. Not to mention you can take your trucks in the dunes............but few are actually made for it.
