  12. From watching your several hill climb attempts yesterday, your issue was either you were not downshifting to 1st gear or your Jeep was upshifting it to 2nd gear when you needed the most. We all "HIGHLY RECOMMEND" here to drive in HI gear at all times for a reason to not to break your transmission and cause severe engine damage. Using low gear with such high rev and high speed (above 40 kmph) will cause long term damage, even with 1 sidey or long hill climb. Read your Jeep wrangler owner manual for the precise operation of LO gear, when in doubt. If your jeep has upshifting issue then look and research on that point rather than finding workaround that could cause a severe damage. Like someone mentioned before here on Area53 drive thread, work on correcting your line of attack (take least resistance path), increase momentum and then downshift to 1st gear (in HI) just before the foothill of the dune is the only recipe for successful long hill climb. Rest all are expensive myth. Last but not least, every car has its own limitation due to its power to weight ratio or bad gearing issue, so don't push beyond those limits and keep trying different techniques. Yesterday hill climb was severe and only 2 out 10 cars made it to the top and crossed the ridge, so probably (I'm just saying) that could be the upper limit for your wrangler too, just accept and move on as there are thousands of dunes to enjoy and play rather than fighting with just one. I don't mind trying your Jeep in next drive to actually identify the root cause.
  13. Thanks @Jun Zamora for your kind words and tbh that was nothing special and each and every Carnity Marshal, Crew and senior member would have done the same. I simply stayed back to change the tire as I felt little unsure approach from your voice, when you were in doubt to change it for highway drive or not. Smallest slit on sidewall is extremely dangerous so in your case whole external rubber was out and it was like a "forbidden" to drive for safety reasons. I truly appreciate the love and gratitude from you and your two daughters, but I'm really sorry that I couldn't stayed any longer as I have to wake up at 3 AM today for some other commitment.

  18. GENTLE REMINDER: @Juan Carlos Elizalde Reyes @Ilya Golubinsky AND @Ashley Varghese @Miro @Dagdag Sofiane and @Siraj K Joyji Welcome to Carnity Off-road Club. Please share your vehicle details - Make, Model, Year and Color. Do you have any prior off-road experience? (If yes, please explain). Confirm your vehicle has minimum of 8 inches of ground clearance. Confirm your vehicle has front and rear tow hooks / eyelets. Stock tow hooks / eyelets are perfectly fine. FOR YOUR AND YOUR VEHICLE SAFETY PLEASE WATCH BELOW MANDATORY VIDEO WITHOUT ANY DISTRACTIONS.
  19. Absolute newbie drive is perfect for someone who have never ever driven in the sand before, so starting with basic fundamentals is always better to understand the whole art and science behind sand offroading. Newbie is good for someone who have driven less than 5 drives before or driving infrequently like once in a month or two.
  20. GENTLE REMINDER: @seosamh nash @Juan Carlos Elizalde Reyes @Gok Krish AND @Hatim Patharia and @Ilya Golubinsky Welcome to Carnity Off-road Club.

  21. I'm glad you ask this question and everyone above has helped you enough with the best of the knowledge. Air filter alone is enough to make your throttle more responsive (which you will feel) but wont add any or much hp without tune up and other power mods like headers, exhaust, straight pipes, high performance plugs and wires etc. I love what Fredy mentioned as many times, used car or 4x4 owner run behind big names and big mods and often miss the basics that can actually add lost hp just by fixing those basics.
  22. It was typo as an intermediate. For newbie drive, you must have Flag, deflator, tire gauge, shovel, fire extinguisher, medical kit, radio (walkie-talkie).
  23. @SureshVNair @seosamh nash @Juan Carlos Elizalde Reyes @Gok Krish Welcome to Carnity Off-road Club. Please share your vehicle details - Make, Model, Year and Color. Do you have any prior off-road experience? (If yes, please explain). Confirm your vehicle has minimum of 8 inches of ground clearance. Confirm your vehicle has front and rear tow hooks / eyelets. Stock tow hooks / eyelets are perfectly fine. @Wael Mounier this drive is strictly reserved for absolute newbies only, please join in any other two newbie drives. If they both are full, leave your name on the wait list and trip lead will add you as soon as they have drop outs.
