    Recommend offroad equipments

    Since we don't have warranty issues with tow ropes, I source from a friend in the ship business. It's AED 350 for Viking tow rope with 2 soft shackles, gloves and a bag. The AOR shackles alone cost AED 100 each.

    Liwa Moreeb Drive - 25 Jan 2019

    Liwa here we come. Thanks @Gaurav bhai for posting the much waited Liwa drive.
  4. With the season in full swing and amazing cool weather it's time to have another absolute newbie or newbie level drive. All first timer absolute newbie will be given a proper introduction of sand off-roading before they start, from seasoned offroaders having over decades of UAE offroad experience. Idea is to make an absolute newbie comfortable with sand off-roading and in some of the most approachable set of sand dunes in Tawi Nizwa side. It's a perfect drive for people aspiring to start dune bashing or offroading in the sand as a new hobby and wish to explore the UAE offroad, natural beauty and unleash the hidden power of your 4x4 vehicle. For newbies, it's a perfect drive to learn more and advance to fewbie level and start enjoying more advance level drives as per your offroad grades. All experienced members are requested to join in helping newbies by imparting their off-road expertise. When: 18 Jan 2019 Meeting time: 7:00 AM, and convoy will move sharply at 7:15 AM Where: Tawi Nizwa shops GPS Coordinate: https://goo.gl/maps/KKBUhkQ2y382 Level of drive: All are welcome Type of Car: Any proper 4x4 with front and back tow hooks and 8-10 inches of ground clearance Plan: Easy drive from Tawi Nazwa to Pink rock and relax with snacks, bbq, drinks, and chat. What to bring along: Loads of snacks - whatever you like with little extra to share, water, liquids, smiles, stories, enthusiasm and willingness to learn. Approximate finish time: 11 AM Please RSVP on below Calendar
  5. It's better to learn from other people mistakes by analyzing these offroad accidents. This will be an educational tool with open discussions regarding mishap in off-roading based on your own experience and off-road knowledge. Please keep it simple and relevant for learning purpose rather than making any insulting or unwanted remarks. VID-20180502-WA0000.mp4
  6. Great observations @Gaurav and @WiLfY.

    Hissing sound from brake pedal

    I had a similar issue and Gaurav bhai helped me by putting some tape on the hose. It started with the hissing sound and within a week I had to literally stand on the brakes to come to a stop. Replaced the hose and was all OK. Recommend to get it checked at the earliest if it's your daily driver too.
  14. @Per A. Most welcome. Just make your way to the meeting point, will take you from there.

  16. @hossein brilliant videos and I missed you all too.
  17. Glad you enjoyed @Frederic Nuyttens and thanks for sharing your views. You have an absolutely beautiful way of expressing yourself. I'm becoming a big fan of your write-ups. Sorry I missed the drive due to having high fever, but thanks to all your prayers I'm much better now and looking forward to Liwa.

    Car Service

    My opinion is to get the oil checked outside if it needs changing, by texture and smell you can make out if it really needs to be changed. If it needs changing very much go ahead, but if you can keep it for some more time before you have to make the change than keep it in mind to do it as necessary. Even if you do just an engine oil change they will stamp the book saying serviced. Only when you go and sit with them and ask them for service history the stories will come out how you refused to change the diff oil as recommended by them.

    Sorry to hear that @sertac. We love you and we will pray that you get a good job soon.
  20. @hossein this drive is a level up and would be at a slightly faster pace and mostly medium dunes. @Emil you could bring the family along if their stomachs are strong, this will be higher level drive. @BIG T next week will most probably be intermediate drive in Liwa, you can join as passenger but won't be able to bring your ride.

    Slightly bigger tyres for Pajero

    @Keithryan sometimes we overlook the simplest of things. Just a thought, check if anything is loose in your wheel well, any plastic or rubber part that could be rubbing against your tire to make that sound. Michelin tires are very good. I ran Michellin Latitudes for 4 years and they were very quiet and smooth on road.
  22. Wouldn't miss this and the newly awarded Fewbie should definitely try their skills and build on it in this area. @BIG T, @hossein, @jibransayed, @Javier M, @Emil, @Frederic Nuyttens, @Rana, @Jocreative, @Julien V. Ring ring.

    Pajero small parts - where to get?

    @Keithryan for the roof handle and the brake light clips you can check with any of the spare part shops in Sharjah that has the Mitsubishi logo displayed including Divya. For the clips for the side step, that is a common problem, you can find it at any of the small spare part shops, they have it for something like AED 1/- each. Very cheap and easy fix. All the sops are on the First Industrial Street in Sharjah, I have just marked a shop as per the Google Map link below to help you get there. https://goo.gl/maps/TuAH1U6c66s Hope this helps.
  24.

    Newbie drive - 4 Jan 2019

    @Sajith Kumar. Thank you for your participation and looking forward to many more drives with you. We will have our newbie drives as there are quite a few new comers who need to brush up before going to Fewbie level. You can still join as a passenger in drives above your level, this also gives you a chance to look and learn. As for the radio, I have the below thread which is very comprehensive, hope this will help.
