Yep - after a week on the Outer Banks of Carolina surf fishing - i can report that the D2 is VERY capable off-road. The deep sand that was sucking some other trucks down - was handled with dignity and grace in the Beach Assault Vehicle
I recently bought an '06 Durango Limited. I'm planning on going off-road in sand dunes this weekend... but i have no experience in off road driving (don't worry... i will be going with professionals to teach me)!
Is the Durango capable of handling sand dunes (soft sand)? Some people have told me it might be a bit too low and too long... any thoughts?
most any SUV can handle sand if you do it right. The Gen 2 front bumper is the biggest liability you will have to overcome. careful with steep approaches or dips. Air down your tires to 15 psi for a better footprint and traction. Have fun.
