It all depends on the sand. If it is soft I use 4 low. If it is hard packed I use 4 hi.

Dont forget to air down.

A 30k strap can be handy.

A folding shovel would be a good idea.

I play in a lot of sand and using low spins the motor faster to help cool the motor.

air down, easy on the gas until you are in a higher gear, SHOVELS AND FRIENDS, and a good long snatch strap with some stretch in it....seen 2wd minivans cruise every where with a decent driver and street tires at Pismo dunes
