    I have not had any major issue in finding parts, I had recently go the radiator, water pump, spark plugs, clutch, and I think the flywheel changed and there was no major issue. My car doctor is @shadow79 and he has been able to get most of the parts. My car is a GCC spec car, GCC spec car is better than US import because in US the bottom of the car is mostly rusted. Other than that, whichever origin you will have to do some work on the cooling system to improve it (if it has not already been done). To use this vehicle for both daily driving as well as offroading depends on the condition of the car. In my case I got a relatively clean car so I use it for both. But most people keep this car for weekend drives only as its quite basic to drive on a regular basis

    XJ is a simple vehicle. I think you can get the original MOPAR parts from Trading Enterprises and if not available in stock they will order it. But lot of the parts can be put from other makes (also called Tejari).

    In your budget you should be able to get the Pajero 3.8 SWB. Most of the Pajero's are hardly taken off road so you might get a clean one. But try to stay away from the 2009 to 2014 models as they have a peculiar up-shifting problem in tiptronic. If you are checking Cherokee look for the Cherokee XJ (1997 to 2001) models, they are quite rugged. Dont look at the later models. Difficult to get a clean one, but you might get lucky. You will have to do some work on them to reduce the overheating issue. Further, many might agree on this forum that the older vehicles, i.e., prior to 2004 were better built for offroad use than the later versions.
  11. How to 2 fold Pajero passenger seat?

    This happens after struggling for many days to get the seats folded and finally reading it on another country forum. Sharing it here helps in building a knowledge in a local forum
  12. I am mostly in Basel. Looking forward to you leading us.
  13. Best Radiator/ cooling for my vehicle in the uae?

    @hummerh3 yes, i got one done from @shadow79. You can check with him as well. he runs his garage in Ajman and he has solved the overheating issue in my Cherokee XJ
  14. Best Radiator/ cooling for my vehicle in the uae?

    you will have to get one fabricated to match the original radiator dimensions. There are many companies like Dolphin Radiator and Sabah Radiator who do this job. Alternatively you can also goto a small fabricator and give your original radiator and he will be able to fabricate one for you.
