Iv'e done it in an 02 Navara DC........no problems.
There are a couple of things you have to be a bit more careful with however.
1. Ground clearance is not as good as a cruiser or patrol so you need to choose you track more carefully in certain areas.
2.You will also need to reduce tyre pressures a bit more alsofor the dunes........I let mine down until I can virtually idle up a dune......this of course means you have to travel a bit slower on the flat but travelling slower with low tyre pressures on the corragated sections makes for a much better ride and less chance of blowing a shocky

Hope you have a ball........we did

Regards
Richard

Depends on what weight you are carrying but the pressures indicated by Bucky would be a good indication .........a bit of trial and error never goes astray.... let them down till the dunes are easy and the corragations comfortable

We too are doing the CSR in July, and will be doen to somewhere betweem 15-18 psi.
And on the corrugations, ect to get there approx 22-25psi..

Have done the Simpson, and Big Red a few times now, and 15 seems to work best, 18 if you have a fair load.

It's all about footprint, of your tyres

Cheers
Bucky
