  1. Thank you guys for signing up and It was a fantastic day for off-roading, and I'm sure you all had as much fun as I did. We started our drive at 7.20 a.m., a few minutes late due to the sunrise, and it was a fantastic drive. Our original intention was to start from Faqa, behind the police station, but we had to change it due to covid regulations and the risk of crossing the border by driving too close to it in case of unanticipated events. My plan was to get to the solar park through Muquab and Lisali if time permits,or else to exit via Murquab or Lisali . You guys, on the other hand, were am

  2. Thank you friends for joining. Was really good to have this drive today, despite being busy with tracks. We somehow managed to make a lot of climbs, and moved for about 58 km. It was a shovel and rope free drive. All stucks and refusal were self managed, thank you @Peter Hager and @Vaibhav for supporting us, and going the drivers whenever required. @Waqas Parvez you were a perfect SL. Pleasure to meet you for first time @Omar ElGamal and @Morshedi , amazing driving capabilities. @Bruno Finel @Ahmad Shaker @Trekado good to see you again. Below our drive info and track. Look forward to mee

  5. A fabulous drive @Shaaz Sha, thank you for making even the small mundane dunes look challenging right from the word go. The first 45 mins ensured that we were all awake and paying full attention. Weather and the sand condition of course helped but nothing takes away from the fact that everyone drove well making the drive fluid and thoroughly enjoyable. It was very classy to see how, despite of not having any long climbs and sidies, you led us through an intense and enjoyable drive. thank you. @Charbel, @Anoop Nair, @Matt.T, @Pacific, @Amir Amiri, @Thomas Varghese, @Ahab Shamaa, @Alex

  7. Thank you @sertac for a wonderful drive and @Mehmet Volga for the support. It was an interesting experience for me at the end, behind all the long wheelbase monster of cars - while I was following the track left behind by the convoy in front of me - many a times I was just surfing in the in the churned-up sand. Thanks to the recent weather - the sand was quite firm, and it was easily drivable for me, otherwise if it were any other time, I am sure I would have had to take all alternate route for much of the way I was driving and would have had tough time. @Karthikeyan Govindarajan, @M

  8. Well done dear @Shaaz Sha actually that was my initial plan but in the reverse direction Lisaili to solar via murqab and Faqa . But this wouldn’t be possible without passing a high tech parches at the outline of the buffer zone. Alternatively Qudra completed my intended spunk of three different areas with a terrain of their owns.

  9. @Shaaz Sha another great drive with you today. The first half was full on and certainly sharpened the mind and muscles but the convoy wasn't phased. The 2nd half was a little less manic but we didn't slow down and the few stops and/breaks were well timed. We had only a couple of refusals all day, 1 pull and one small digging incident. The pop out near the end was a bit random but quickly dealt with. Good 2nd lead from @Ranjan Das and sweep from @Alexander Alcala. Thanks for the photos @Thomas Varghese and @Charbel. See you all in the sand

  11. @ZULFIKHAR NAIYAR I have a feeling the squeaking sound comes from the rear leaf springs. Probably your rear leaf spring bushes have cracked or worn out. These bushes are not available OEM and you have to replace the entire leaf spring for the bushes. You can also purchase the aftermarket neoprene bushes from Dobinsons which are even better than the OEM rubber bushes. The cost of the bushes with the replacement labor from Dobinsons would be 400AED if you don't fall for the aftermarket greaseable shackles which they will try to promote @ 175 a piece. You can also check the shocks for leakage and

Thank you Gentlement @[email protected] [email protected] @Karthikeyan Govindarajan for a great adventure, the wet compacted sand surface made our cars behave differently , however, with the amazing weather and scenery, it was an unforgettable outing that I will always remember.

  15. Congratulations @ZULFIKHAR NAIYAR for finally finding your offroad vehicle The first step you need check /replace all fluids / lubes . the next step get your bash plate fixed initially you can check the engine/gear mounts and if in good condition no need to replace them right now . Look at the tires if it’s validity more than half way probably better to change them to A/T high profile tires once good for all fir the next two years average daily driving and weekly off road regarding specific garages I am afraid we are not promoting anything like that in here a

  16. Hi All, Very useful post. Could see all the Xterra gang is on this thread.. I finally ended up getting an XTerra 2014 OR version recently. With all the above mods being suggested, can you also please suggest which garages specialize in Xterra modifications or checks. I'm sifting through some of the old threads to gain more info on this. The one I bought does have a squeaking sound and I'm not sure if I need to get the shocks replaced. Also, read in some thread by @Foxtrot Oscar that engine and gear mounts need to be checked for used Xterra's - good pointer, thanks. Is

  20. Hey @Rob S ! I agree on the cosmetic part and love a bold wide stance on any 4x4. For me personally during self recovery I always stick my head out of the window and observe my tyres so I can crawl out of the situation. Having the wheels sticking out of the fenders helps for that. Basically if you decide you want to change the rims, you can indeed go for an offset of 0 or even negative (depends on the original ET value). Just be careful that your tyres are not rubbing too much against the fenders while off-roading. When you are up to change rims, you can visit a tyre shop and as

  29. Thanks @Gregoryfor your feedback you drove fantastic today .. yeah I forgot to switch back to 4WD button .. but trust me it wouldn’t be the case in solar park part as it was the softest sand and I would know. However in Qudra the sand was slightly harder πŸ˜… . this coincidence proves that deflated tires is the king in off-roading especially sand and I always drive on 10 PSI and warmer conditions even 9 πŸ˜‰

  32. Congrats! @ZULFIKHAR NAIYAR you definitely can go anywhere with Xterra offroad. Cant give you names but can tell you that front skid plate should cost around 1-1.3 k for 8-10mm thickness with radiator guard. and then you are ready to bash the dunes !

  33. Do you know your roles and responsibilities while off-roading? Offroad driving is one of the most famous adventure activities in the UAE. Everyone during the offroad drive is always nice and very welcoming to help each other. Due to the nature of this extreme and adventurous motorsport, sometimes things do get unpleasant and everyone involved needs to know their roles and responsibilities clearly. Desert worthiness vehicle: While off-roading every vehicle get pushed to its limit and for this reason, every off-roader needs to maintain, check and fix vehicle problem before eve
