Default How do Explorers handle on the dunes? I've heard BAD! :(

Hey Guys,
My Jeeps struts are shot, its not going camping this weekend, therefore not going to the dunes. (GRRRRRRRRRRRRR)
So Im taking the Explorer...gas hog
2001 XLT V8 AWD

BUT I REALLY WANT TO DO THE DUNES!!!!!!!

How would it do? Anyone with real personal experience? There is nothing aftermarket on this truck.
haha, except the hatch...
If PSI is 10ish on a Jeep - what would it be on an Explorer?

Can anyone make me feel better and say it'll do just fine? My sissy cousin is 'scared' shes going to get hurt on the dunes, so Im going to go maybe 10mph!!! But I still [I]neeeed[I] to go :)
