Nice! Any issues? Fun, or not fun.... :)
I'm just not a sand guy, I've never taken my FJ to the dunes, never rode bikes/quads or anything in the sand.

It sure does look fun watching Chris and others ripping it up on the beach's though.

I grew up racing in the Southern California deserts, sand was a big part of the race. There were sand washes in Baja that went on for dozens of miles. White sand, white rocks..at speed you would get sailing when you hit one of the rocks. If my memory is correct there was one in the Baja 1000 that was close to 50 miles long..wide open it was a thrill. LOL. Sand is a blast as long as you keep your ass over the rear wheel and the throttle open. Let the front end do what it wants to. You steer with your weight over the real wheel. Its intimidating until you find the sweet spot for riding it. And most importantly...DO NOT PUT YOUR FEET DOWN.
