What size tires are you wanting to go with? Is that is only place you will be going off-road.

its all about aring down and the tires you get, the lift doesnt have much to do wiht the offroad capabilities, more the onroad comfort,
the best lift to get is either the deluxe or ultimate

Mabe where you live a lift don't matter but in Colorado you need a lift to go off-road.
Big rocks = big lift or lots of damage oh yeah and you get stuck.

I also think a wider tire would work well in the sand. like a 31.12.50r15 would work well IMO

no im not saying you dont need a lift, im saying it doesnt much matter what kind, like if u get RC as opposed to RE or BB and BL as opposed to LA, its mostly about onroad comfort untill you get into intense rock stuff, or like 6+ in of lift

I gotta agree with Derek here, for sand you dont need much lift (enough to clear the tires)

Big and wide tires is your ticket.

I'd go with some wide Boggers and 6" of lift (4 suspension and 2" bl)

In my opinion for sand Boggers is the biggest choice of sizes i've ever seen and they vary from pizza cutters to like 16-17" wide (not tall)...

On 2nd thought skinny but really tall tires might be a better choice since wide tires will only fight agains the sand as they dig through it.

With the right air pressure a 2WD will go just about as many places as a 4WD in beach sand. You don't want get boggers for the beach though. Mud tires just dig down in the sand, an all terrain tire will do much better.
