Hi Alssaf - welcome to the club 8)

Dodge Nitro has plenty of power so no worries in that regard - but use it only on the smooth parts of the desert because otherwise you will leave your plastic bumpers there if there's bumps or ledges, or steep edges.

Sand tracks are fine, dirt tracks excellent, even long climb up tall dunes are fine, but no cresting.

Especially careful at the front.

Just see the photo, and look at that lovely, soft, plastic part hanging down there...

Also, you have good tow hooks front and rear?

And, without low range gearing, try to just keep moving and not stopping in soft sand or you might have trouble starting off again.
