    Yes everyone is doing well, thank god. Mohammed got the cops paper and it will be sorted soon with insurance. Does anyone spotted big dip or bush at 0.07 sec that bounced the car heavily....? Watch in full screen. Also intention to steer left than climbing up as desertdude rightly mentioned would have saved it completely. FJC in stock state is very tipsy, added with 3-4 inch lift is a recipe for disaster. We have mentioned and pointed same last week at Qudra exit and we never knew this could prove fatal so fast. Sad. However, such incident always remind all of us that every sport has some associate risk and soon we acknowledge, embrace and learn to stay clear from such risk, better it is for everyone.

    With the weather looking up these days, experiencing the chill temperatures, early morning was a great way to start off the day. Added to that, meeting up with a lovely group of like minded off-roaders is just an icing on the cake. @Srikumar assigned me to the sweep position and I had the incredibly rare opportunity of having @Gauravbhai accompany me as a passenger. With this mix, the day just couldn't have been better. I am just about getting acquainted with sweep duties and it is definitely a great way to be a more responsible offroader and watching @Gauravbhai in action was a delightful and educative experience indeed. The banter I shared with @Gaurav bhai was invaluable and i hope we can roll again sometime. All in all, this was yet again, an action packed and fun filled drive to say the least. Ill try and put up a video tonight.

    Such myth list goes on and on: Drive on LO all the time Drive on HI but in first and second gear all the time Install 10K suspension first before hitting the sand Put biggest possible tire with most aggressive looks and tread Install bull bar before hitting the sand Install snorkel, chip, turbonator, throttle spacer to be desert ready Give strong tug on every smallest refusal to demonstrate the strongest car Shovel and self recoveries are for idiots Why clear the sand when tow rope strong pull will do the job catch me if you can (said / unsaid contest) all the time

    Thanks @Frederic for this nice share. I would add an axe to cut wood sticks when there is a lot of trees available around your camp (If you are not in a protected area of course)

    As I wrote, I started slow for the first high dunes, just to check that you were comfortable with your JGC, but after that, trust me, we were cruising at the usual intermediate level pace.

    If it doesn’t tell you on the dashboard you’ll need a TPMS tool. Point it at the wheels and you’ll see if one isn’t sending a signal. They’re not expensive but a good tyre shop will have one. Some diagnostic computers work through the obd port but it depends on the car.

    Sri and Javier were very kind. I like to teach people how to get unstuck by letting them shovel, so they can learn faster

    I never had anyone put petrol in my car until I came to uae. It’s just not a thing where I’m from. You fill your own car. I don’t understand the mentality of the petrol companies paying people to stand on the forecourts but I just roll with it. When in Rome.....

    https://m.lingscars.com/ For context, Ling is a crazy Chinese lady who moved to the UK years ago with dreams of being a car dealer. She is constantly in court for fraud. I remember a few years ago she got arrested for selling “brand new deloreans” for £15,000. (75k dhs). Delorean stopped making cars in 1983.She never stops. but just check out that crazy website. It’s like something 15 year old me would have created in HTML and spent 3 days uploading it on my 56k connection which could barely reach 28k.

    Hi, Since I have been assisting newbies with recoveries in the off road drives off late, I realized its time I got myself a jack besides the stock jack that comes in my car. @Srikumar has also pointed out that its better if I get a good jack to help out with recoveries. I have noticed all the seniors use the standard hydraulic jack which is very convenient and gets the job done all the time. However, when I was looking around, i did come across a few electrical options and I was wondering how these would fare against the classic hydraulic jack that we all use. Two models in particular have caught my eye (ill include the picture and description below) but if any of you could share your experiences with me on this, that would be great as I am not sure if these newer electric options will stand the test of time, as in, will they last or would they stop working over a period of time. 1) The first is an - Automotive Electric Hydraulic Floor Jack 12V DC 3T with Electric Impact Wrench 4 in 1 Electric Car Jack Tool Kit with LED lamp I have seen a bunch of video ads for these and they seem fairly simple to setup. 2) And the next is an electric scissor jack The price for both of these are a bit higher than the standard hydraulic jack but then again, they provide a convenience of lifting the car with a lot more ease. They both come with cigarette lighter wires and crocodile clips to connect to the battery. If anyone has had any experience with these jacks or even other types of jacks, your feedback would be highly appreciated. Thanks.

    For a moment I thought you have vibrations at 220 kmph, and I was scratching my head how come bro u cross the sound barrier of pajero at 180 kph. Have you check air filter, engine oil, spark plug basics first?

    We love a can of worms. I used to drive on HTs with the exception of Yoko Geolander ATS since 1 year. Feels slightly heavier, but as I got used to them they really help out a lot and fairly quiet on road. Gives me that extra kick in deep sand to just make it a bit further. Plus it really soaks up the throes tracks which is nice.

    I don't understand why when a vehicle is through to the other side of the dune and gets stuck, you need to pull it back over the dune. With the weight of the car, a little digging would have gone a long way if you need to pull it back. The angle at the back was also not a good one. Seen many accidents as such over the years and people never learn.

    It can happen that the various corrosion inhibitors in different brands of coolant react with each other to form an acid that attacks seals and/or mating surfaces under gaskets and seals. Other times, and depending on the mixture, coolant additives can cancel each other out, so you may think that your engine is protected, but meanwhile, the coolant mixture is destroying it from within in various ways, and the first time you notice something is wrong is when you start getting coolant leaks. So no, mixing coolants is never a good idea.

    Congrats @Brette. Can't say it any better than @Frederic. Those Jeeps are a bit difficult to get used to but you've proved its not impossible. Well done bro, love your attitude.

    Final Update Vibration was due to 1 teeth missing , Last night we opened everything again and found out left side Belt was missed by 1 1/2 timing. It took me 6 Sparks Plug, 2 coil and cleaning of Injectors to find out this cause. in this course my Manifold was damaged due to wrong fitting. Finally the vibrations are gone, but will drive for a week to see if it returns
