@GauravSir i have found in couple of places in your above post, you have mentioned you need to have proper 4X4 and not SUV. Could you please elaborate more on that. Till date i thought or believed that their is no difference between SUV & 4x4. Advance apologies for asking such a basic question here. Just curious to upgrade my knowledge and educate myself on this particular topic.
Disclaimer: Im not challenging or testing any of the member on their knowledge/skills. In fact i assume myself as uneducated/fresher on such topics.
Having a refusal or getting completely stuck is something nobody should feel guilty about, since it's part of the off-roading game. It’s also an essential experience in your learning. Somehow, as long as you can understand what happened so you won’t repeat the same mistake over and over, it’s a must to improve.
There are hundreds of reasons why you can get stuck. Some of them don’t directly depend on the driver (it can be related to an engine issue, the terrain, the climate, etc.), while others are just mistakes. Some of them are clear and obvious, others are more unpredictable and difficult to identify…
As a big fan of @Rahimdad’s What Went Wrong ? thread, it came to my mind that we could simply adapt his brilliant idea by analyzing, not accidents, but stucks, and try to make together a list of all the possible reasons behind them.
Please do share here your guesses, explanations... and videos.
I’ll start easy, with one of my best stucks this year, which happened in Area 53 two weeks ago (I borrowed the footage from @Javier M).
So... who can tell us why I got stuck here ?
Sorry for this photos but it’s something that all off-roaders (and passengers) should see and always keep in mind. Never ever throw plastics or anything.
What's the best 4x4 vehicle for Dubai sand dunes for dune bashing?
Of course I don't mean million dollar Mercedes 6x6 league, but more within a reasonable budget that I can use regularly every week without the fear of breaking bumpers and electric failures. I prefer within 50k AED budget and I am open for old or very old vehicles as far as they are capable and reliable without too much or too expensive maintenance.
