I'm pretty sure that it is impossible to keep sand out of the vehicle
while playing in sand.

yep, don't take it or you will have sand in it, windows up AC on isn't much fun, and every time you get out you will track sand in when you get back in.
I DD my truck I have sand on the dashboard, mud on the inside of the windshield and dust in the vents.

Thing about the dunes is you can get sand where it sucks air from outside, and it will suck that down into your vents, the filter might catch it, if there is one.

No, if you're afraid of a lil dirt, you're a big puss. Keep it on the pavement and the tire shine on thick.

1.Stay off they dunes...
2.Mud it with the windows down,
Each layer/color of mud is a story about that awsome hole you mad it threw.

Best help I had to offer.

After you get inside of your truck, have a friend on the outside duck tape all of the door jams and around all of the window openings. Next, tape up all of our AC vents on the inside. The idea is to make it air tight. Think about it this way, if you plug your nose and close your mouth, no sands gonna get in your lungs, right? Same concept applies to your truck.

i think you should worry more about the sand in your vag than the sand in your truck. do you also spend alot of time talking about your feelings and possibly cry after sex?

It is a truck, and trucks are meant to get dirty. Unless you get real crazy, you should have no problems.

You kinda set yourself up for this onslaught of insults...But if you dont want to get sand in it, buy a toy for the sand/mud.

I still have mud in my Jeep from the mounds over a year ago. Don't be afraid to get your truck a little sandy.
