I just rode dunes last weekend for the first time. My suggestion would be a sand oriented rear tire. That way you can still go elsewhere to ride and not have to change tires. Another is a stabilizer. I had mine cranked up way high. Super helpful. I spent most of my time in 4th and 5th gear, so I'd gear it 1 or 2 teeth higher.

Regular front should be fine, I'd suggest something within MX31 territory. Get an 8 paddle. There's really no reason to get anything super expensive tire-wise for sand. I've been using cheng shin sand pro for years now.
