Here are some shots from last weekends trip to the Silver Lake Sand Dunes in Michigan. Ran the tires at 14 front and 12 pounds rear and hooked up great with the Goodyear Duratrac tires.

Whooooo hooo! Awsome! My wife wants to go there next year, with the quads and the truck. I'm absolutely going to share your vid.

We were supposed to go there with friends and play until one got the covid and we had to cancel. Fun place to play. I am on the other side of the pond. A short ride on the lake express and I am there.
 
It is amazing what "airing-down" will do for you playing in the sand. We have Dumont Sand Dunes near us outside Vegas. Can't tell you how many people get stuck in the sand with their tires aired-up to 70-80psi (and how many fellow campers we've had to un-bury).

Now of course running that low of air pressure (sub 20psi) you always run the risk of rolling a bead if you turn hard, but for a fun little cruise, you'll never get stuck.

Sweet video shooting a roost!

By the way, info on the light bar on the blue Tremor????
 
Nice, have been looking at making the trip over to check out the area. I am too much of a chicken to take the tow rig out in the dunes though. In all the vids I noticed most people on Silver are running front mounter flags even on the SxS is that a requirement?
 
Thanks for sharing that video. I've been there many times over. I'm right on the Big Lake and most of the dunes are now protected. Silver Lake however, you can put it to the wood like the white tremor is doing (y)

Yep, flags on all vehicles and SxS that go into the Dunes. No requirement for Tow Rigs to have flags in the "flats". Dumont is awesome and Dune season is just about to start...

Sorry should have been more specific on question, was curious on if the Front mounted flag is required vs rear mount on certain vehicles. I go to St Anthony dunes quite a bit and the vast majority of vehicles there run a rear mounted flag and all the Silver Lake vids I watch the front mount seems to be more common. I suspect it is easier to mount up there on a superduty but not on most SxS. Just curious if I would have to fab up some front flag mounts since my Renegade and RZR are set up with rear safety fag mounts.

I've seen a few Front Mounted flags in Dumont, though I don't think the Rangers would bother you if it were mounted front vs. rear. It only has to be minimum 6' above the ground. Most Rangers only start bothering people when you run Blue & Red lighted whips that flash (or other under vehicle lights). There's a lot of night riding at Dumont and recently there's been a crack-down on Red/Blue light combos (such as chase lights). Technically, you're supposed to have an orange flag, but that's not enforced, especially given that 50% or more people run 3' x 5' flags with all kinds of graphics. I've been going there for 13 years and rarely do you see someone stopped by the Rangers for flag issues, usually, you have to be doing something else really dumb, like speeding past camp circles (>15mph within 50'). Or drinking and driving.
