Driving on the beach

I was wondering how many of us drive our tuned llys on the beach or sand. I try not to because of my cold air intake, countless hours turning the wrench and all of the $ I have in my rig. I was wondering how many of you feel the same? At the same time isn't this what we build them for? Or am I just over thinking it? I have a 05 lly on 35s with a diesel addiction tune, a dp5 and an edge tuner. Built trans, stabilizer bars, A bullseye turbo and twin cp3 pumps. At times I'd like to take it fishing on the beach instead of my smaller truck.

It's not going to "hurt" anything just by driving on the sand, but you will have sand EVERYWHERE under the truck. I had to pressure wash the undercarriage multiple times to get the sand off, and there is still some stuck in certain places where I can't get it off.

Overall, if you are super picky about your truck being clean like I am, I wouldn't recommend it.

I am considering a dually to carry a truck camper. I enjoy fishing and imagined camping on a beach with this set-up. Are the problems cited here for all duallys or for just the trucks tat are tuned?

One word...
SALT
With the collected sand, you also get plenty of salt. Almost impossible to get all the sand/salt from underneath once you do it. Wont be long after that any exposed frame areas and more will start showing rust and corrosion.

Ahh. Salt, of course. I live in New England where we get a lot of salt on the roads in the winter. I presently own a sb gmc duramax. I go regularly to car washes to wash away salt on an under my truck. I dont think that is possible with a dually. Any suggestions?
