  1. For some its attitude / style to show their supremacy over others by not following those stupid lines.
  2. Liwa - An Unforgettable Experience For the intermediate and above level offroaders, who have missed the chance to experience Liwa on 14 Feb, here comes another golden opportunity to embrace Liwa with its open buffet of some of the best dunes in the UAE. As much as Liwa is fun, thrilling and mind boggling with humongous dunes and vast desert, it is indeed very tricky, scary and challenging to test all your off-road skills in one drive. More than the skills and your vehicle capabilities, you need to be very sharp, calculative and attentive to understand the convoy movement with patience and level head at all times. As it's a 3+ hour drive from Dubai so ideally well rested body will enjoy this whole day drive without fatigue, so reaching a night before and camping or sleeping in the car at meeting point would be ideal, but completely optional for everyone. When: 28 February January 2020, Friday Drive start: 7:45 AM, the convoy will move at sharp 8:00 AM Where: Maraba Al Dhafra Petrol Station, Zayed City, Abu Dhabi Meeting point: https://goo.gl/maps/3TNYZFbBztR93Yo76 Level: Intermediate and above - STRICTLY. Type of Car: Proper 4x4 with front and back tow hooks and 10 inches of ground clearance. Well serviced and thoroughly checked to be in pristine condition without any flaws, warning light, mechanical or electrical malfunction. Plan: Explore and drive till about 05:00 PM What to bring along: Loads of water, snacks, smiles, stories, enthusiasm and willingness to learn. Extra fuel jerry can - at least 20 liter, more the better. Spare tire should be in good working condition. Drinks & ready to cook food for lunch and dinner Snacks or nuts to munch while driving All spare fluids for your car Firewood (20 kg) / Car - If you are camping Optional items if you have them bring them with you (no special purchase needed) Binoculars Sand track/mat Tie-down straps Tool kit, Ratchet, socket set Essential spare parts for your car Axe, Saw, Heavy duty Hammer etc. Approximate finish time: 5:00 PM Camping and bonfire: 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM - (Optional) Sleep over: 10:00 PM - 6:00 AM - 29 Feb 2020- (Optional) MUST READ: First off-road drive checklist Off Road Driving - Roles & Responsibilities Off road Driving Etiquette's Off-road Convoy Rules Off roading - Everything you need to know Please RSVP on the below calendar.

  4. Are you buying this for off-road use? Is this 355K is on same engine or it has been changed? Is this stock engine rebuild or overhauled in the past? Is this Patrol has been driven in sand regularly? (90% chances are YES) Automatic or Manual? How many owners since new? Owner nationality and profession? Post some interior and exterior clear pictures to get more precise advise. The bottom line is you should avoid buying vehicle that has been "heavily used and abused" in off-road especially Nissan Patrol in her 20 years of owners history. If its road car, then you need a thorough check to make sure that. Also Nissan patrol are very commonly used with LS engines to thrash their usable life, once done they switch to stock engine and resell it. So if you see fancy color wires hanging in engine bay with unusal switches/knob/boxes then be sure its reincarnated version.

  13. Black portion is called hitch, and white is the receiver. Receiver can be for trailer, for towing/tug with ball or hook. Was it your vehicle that had rear hitch or am I confused with @Predrag acimovic Expedition....?
  14. We are glad to see that many real enthusiasts here notice and think alike on respecting each other time and attending brief is must for everyone. If you are a newbie, you still need to learn, if you are at fewbie or intermediate then you have to help and teach others like you have been helped few weeks back. It's called - "Pay it forward" (Google it, for people who aren't familiar with this). Get engaged in the morning briefing, meet and get to know new faces with whom you will be sharing your rest of the day, helping them or getting their help when you are stuck. If you have 3-4 hours for driving then spare some time for briefing and debriefing as those few minutes of investment, will help you enjoy your 3-4 hours of driving without breaking bumpers or bones.
  15. @Nayan Shenai this is what you really need at your rear hitch. Just spotted this on the road and thought about your yesterday incident.
