Diesel in the Sand?

I have 4 wheeled for years in the sand but always in a gasser. My last truck was the same as my current one except it had a gas engine. My question is how will the added lbs of the diesel engine effect the trucks performance in the Sand? The last thing I want to do is bury this thing!

Just don't let your tires start spinning and you'll be okay.

Just air down and go. I was worried about the same thing when I took my truck to the outerbanks for the first time. I ended up running 17-18 psi and had no problems, even in very soft sugar sand. Check out my gallery for pics.

This is a worry for most new truck owners if you get your air perisher to 20/25 PSI your have no problems. I have had six different 4 wheel drives most of them gassers but as you I was worried for my 04.5 loaded with all gear camping, fishing, coolers and a boat trailer 14" John but don't worry enjoy your truck. Wash under it with lawn sprinkler win you get home.

MilesPH! That's one smart idea to clean under the truck! Sure beats trying to lean under it trying to spray all the mud off and then still missing most of it!!!
