Dune setup

I just picked up my new Maverick XRS two weeks ago and I'm itching to go for a dune ride. I'm going to St. Anthony dunes this weekend for it's maiden sand voyage. I'm just curious if any of you have found a good suspension set up for the dunes and if you wouldn't mind telling me about it? Also what seems to be the best air pressure with the stock tires for the sand?

Sorry i havent been on for a while but stock set up for suspension was ok but i lowered the air pressure downto like 5 psi and it helped alot for climbing. Its too hot in ut to go try out different settings but in a couple of months i will go mess with it.

I have noticed on mine the rear suspension seems to want to jump up going over any bumps. The front handles it great and then when the rear tires hit it doesn't absorb it it just preloads and makes the ass end hop. I've tried adjusting the ride both stiffer and softer and neither seem to help.

The experience I had that four wheel drive doesn't work through the whoops it throws u around like a rag doll. Two wheel drive u can fly trough the whoop like nothing. I pretty much left the suspension from factory.
