Dually Stuck in Sand

first time in 25 years of riding the beach in NC that I have ever been stuck. $165.00 to get out. I believe everything is working properly and have stock wheels and street tires. My first time in a dually. Any suggestions. I usually go fishing a couple of times a year at the outer banks. Took the 2000 F-350 this year. Didn't get off the road but about 100'. How embarassing, and no I didn't let any air out. Dont do that unless I'm running in deep soft powder. Is there something I can do differently or buy something to help? Not taking this back until I have it resolved.

Mike

Yea I was really wondering if the 4x4 was working at all. Never had anything like that happen to me before.

You think so? I have been out there before and I see dually's out there with campers on them. Any suggestions for a fix?

Meatier tires with an off road tread would help. Was this up north of corolla?

Yep, never even really got out there. I've been out there before in this truck and didn't have any issues. just wondering if there were anything special for a dually.

You could have bald tires and still drive around all day with aired down tires.

Duallies arn't that good in sand. My dad had an 08 450 with stock tires took it to the sand and it barley made it. It's cause the sand gets between the space between the tires and you lose traction. My dad got bigger wider tires were there wasn't as much space and did a lot better.
