  1. If you like the auto-stop function, this compressor has it as well: https://aeperf.com/products/volcano-12-volt-160-psi-portable-air-compressor-b850 i have the smaller brother K100 built in and been using for more than a year without issues (350AED). Around 65lpm and I became too lazy to take out my Dobinsons big one lately. https://aeperf.com/products/volcano-12v-120-psi-mini-twin-cylendir-air-compressor-k100
  2. Good afternoon @Ron.P @Fabien Monleau@DanielN@Glenn Waters@premindra rajaram@Gary F@Ahmad Nerat@Nikola Bozovic@imranaasghar81@Mahmoud Taha@Nicholas Cox1@Anirudh Dayma and waitlisted: @James Lovell@Theo09@rohit kumar Please go through the drive post with the 13 points of attention and reply on it by saying "READ AND CONFIRMED" on this topic. I want to make sure everyone has read it, and we don't have to send people back home if they arrive without their gear or extra fuel. Thanks !
  3. Good morning @Anirudh Dayma ! and waitlisted @James Lovell! Please go through below pointers are read them carefully, so you are prepared and know what to expect A few but very important pointers below. Please read them carefully so we don't have to send you back at the meeting point. 1. Please ensure that you are there at the meeting point on 7:30 AM SHARP. Late comers would be sent back. As there is a long distance to drive if you leave in the morning, make sure to leave ahead of time and keep at least 30mins spare time for refueling or a tea break. 2. Get lots and lots of rest the previous day. The more the better as Liwa will not only challenge your vehicle but your mind as well. We would need your complete focus, and fatigue due to less rest is the last thing that is needed on such a terrain. For those who prefer camping the previous night, you can do so at the starting point as its a nice spaced out area. Bring some firewood incase if you wish to have a bonfire to keep you warm. Cleaning up after the bonfire is mandatory. 3. Ensure that your 4x4 is well serviced recently and all the lubes and fluids are topped up. A vehicle breakdown in this terrain will result in not reaching our beloved Yellow Truck so please do the needful to get your 4x4 in the best possible condition. 4. You will be needing 100 litre total fuel amount before starting the drive. For example, if your existing fuel tank is 80L, then you need to bring a 20l jerrycan with you, safely strapped inside the vehicle (or outside if you have a suitable bracket or holder). Make sure your main tank is full. There is an ADNOC 15mins away on the way to the meeting point. Location of last Fuel Station: https://goo.gl/maps/Ug1sGJE1PP6eJBJNA 5. Spare tyre should be in good working condition. If not been used recently, ensure that you take it out and check the condition properly. Also ensure that you have the wrench that can be used to remove your tyre (if needed). In the past we have seen that people upgrade their tyres but still keep the the original wrench which is of no use to remove the upgraded tyre. So please ensure that your car has the right tool to remove the tyres (if needed). 6. Air compressor, proper shovel, flag, fire extinguisher, first aid kit, radio 7. Fully charged radio (tuned to all Carnity Frequencies) with spare battery / radio. If you have a car charger for your radio, please bring it along. 8. Please ensure that you know how to switch off traction control (turning off Air bags is not mandatory for this drive). If it requires pulling the fuse, please research before the drive or better still, post your queries on this drive post and we would assist. 9. Car charger / battery pack for your mobile. 10. Plenty of water, approx 5 litre per person per day. 11. Bring along your breakfast, lunch, snacks, etc in easy to eat packing. We shall be having breaks in between the drive. 12. Dry food, energy bar, cookies, nuts, crisp to munch while driving 13. Bring garbage bags along to carry your trash. Littering in the desert is strictly prohibited. Prior to starting the drive, we will inspect all vehicles to check if everything is safely strapped and you brought all your offroad tools and jerrycan. Please take this event seriously and understand that this terrain, due to its remoteness and size of the dunes will challenge everyone on this drive. If you decide to bring passengers, please make sure they have spent a full day already in a vehicle in the desert and are used to it. There are hardly any nearby exit tracks and rerouting might take hours, so once we are in this terrain the aim is to complete the entire drive and visit the Yellow Truck
  4. You’re currently at Newbie level so you’ll have to do with Sri and me 😜
  5. Good morning @Nicholas Cox1 ! As you have now completed one drive last weekend with @Islam Soliman, you are now eligible to join us in LIWA ! I have added you to the drive.

  6. Mission Accomplished!! Watching the sun rise along Dubai-Al Ain Road on the Oman side, i was wondering what the day would have in store for us, and how the desert would bless us with its magnificent sites once again. Everyone made it on time and was eager to spend a whole day in the sand, and to accomplish a nice crossing from nearby the Oman border, in a town called Masakin, all the way to Al Khatim. As this is a serious distance, we had to keep the pace at all times, but to my surprise we reached the halfway point (E16 crossing) way before noon, thanks to the amazing convoy behind me that digested the terrain with ease ! On the search for some shade, we took our lunchbreak nearby a farm that had some nice trees (and flies...). 45mins later we were already back into the sands and were unstoppable. The very few refusals or stucks kept us awake, and the teamwork was splendid as always. We reached the ADNOC in Al Khatim around 4PM and i guess all of us were happy to enjoy the facilities it provided (from a simple toilet to an air compressor) @Brett Eicher you were impeccable as a second lead, and your XJ is truly equipped to survive any nuclear blasts if they would ever occur ! It was really nice meeting you and look forward to many more nice drives together. Your overlanding experience will definitely come in handy ! @Bjoern and his friendly co-pilot had a blast, and the smiles were bright when they crossed Naqrah hill from the backside ! Well done !! @Patrick van der Loo not many people shift from a comfy Prado to a loud and rattling TJ, but the ones who do will definitely be considered as genuine offroaders in my opinion, and the reward from navigating a TJ through the terrain is priceless (muscle cramps included) ! @Yaseen87 as a trip lead, i sometimes tend to forget that for non-lifted cars i take challenging tracks and crossings, and in the early morning that caught you off guard a few times. But once warmed up you gave the Pajero a good whip on the butt and drove wonderfully ! @Mike M. the white Rhino in its favorite habitat ! Wonderfully driven and a pleasure to have your infectious sense of humour in the convoy. That chair you brought will be part of future bonfire tales @Dodi Syahdar as ever, my quiet trusty sweep at the back, not a foot wrong, and always ready to help out ! Thanks so much for spending the day with us, @Anoop Nair your drive count is going stratospherical. Whenever there is a drive, you bless us with your presence, infectious smile and can-do attitude ! @Richard Franks you were soaking up the terrain like a highway. Splendid driving today !!! Hope for many more of these drives together !! https://www.relive.cc/view/v1Ow9KdrdXq
  7. Stumbled across a Forum that had some guys discussing it. Apparently the available space is very limited, hence the tailgate compressor is really small and outputs 1CFM at no load, 0.72CFM with load. That’s around 28lpm and really not up to the task of inflating 4 All Terrain tyres from 10psi to 35psi. https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/mopar-tailgate-integrated-air-compressor.59320/
  8. Take all the rest you need @Jaro Tuzinsky I’m sure we will have many more Full Day Overlanding drives in the sand and the mountains coming winter. See you soon
  9. DRIVE RSVP IS NOW CLOSED @Ashutosh Garg@Bjoern@Yaseen87@Feras_Sh@Anoop Nair@Mike M.@Jaro Tuzinsky@Patrick van der Loo@Brett Eicher@Richard Franks@Dodi Syahdar We will be using Channel 2: 446.031 Mhz Attention: Lately many people are experiencing issues with the Google Maps location. Please doublecheck if you are entering the location in your Google Maps. The Meeting point is on the E66 Dubai Al Ain Road, a bit further south from Al Hiyar town. Go under the underpass and there is plenty of space to park your vehicle on the pin location: Please ensure you are fully refueled upon arrival. We will be covering a large distance and i hope we can fulfill our goal of reaching our destination in Al Khatim See you at 7AM !
  10. Absolute Newbie 🤣🤣
  11. Wonderful idea @Looper ! Let me come up with the first statement: If Belgium wins the Worldcup i will organize a drive and camp, and free drinks are on me for the whole night
  12. Should make no difference i think. Perhaps better to fill it up the day before so you still have some time to experiment with the location and how to strap it securely.
