  1. You could go to most off-road shops and they will install a killswitch for 200 aed or less. I would recommend to do this since the airbags need to be deactivated too, you do not want them to go off while offroading.
  2. I think he was going too much to the right side and was afraid to run over the people there, seems he was trying his best to correct it and try to go through the path, you can see he is reducing his speed. or he just need some basic offroad classes.
  3. I am thinking about any of this but I am not sure which I'm going first. I know I will need to compromise at some point. Add metal bumpers and a winch Remove the back seat and add a custom storage box to put all my equipment there. Supercharger - If I do this I wont do the other stuff
  4. Ah yes, I remember I was restoring a 71 VW super beetle with my dad, the floor was rusted and we ended up replacing the whole bottom, this is a nightmare.
  5. I guess they will need to put a charging station in the middle of Sweihan and other places 🤣
  6. I use the suction cup mount or I just use one of those permanent mounts with adhesive on my front bumper.
  7. Trip report. We all met on time at the designated meeting point, we moved sharply at 7:00 to the deflation point. We started directly at a good pace to the technical dunes doing a quick summary of the basics since we started where the newbies start but at a much more fast pace. We moved quickly to Faya with just some minor refusals. It was nice to find Faya just for ourselves where we did a climb contest. After that, we found a tree nearby to have breakfast. Thank you @Rahimdad for the Paratas. Once we finished with our food we played around Faya and that's where the fun started, @Shamil was stuck in a tricky spot so it took us about 40 minutes to recover him, thanks to @Emmanuel for his sweep, this helped us to refresh our memory on the basics on shoveling. After that, we started to move towards fossil rock and I hit a bush and my tired popped out. After putting it back in and inflated we continued to move towards Fossil Rock where we had our last peace of fun at the back of Fossil Rock where the Xterras were no match to the Jeep as they had some issues climbing the dunes. By this time it was 11:40 so we decided to exit. We started and finished on time and I hope everyone liked my first lead. Thank you everyone and I will see you on the next one.
  8. I would like to invite all Intermediates and above to do something different and do a fast pace trip from Maleha to Faya. We will start from the newbie area in Maleha and continue our way to Faya and go back to Fossil Rock. This will allow us to go back to basics and practice in a wide range of dunes. We will explore and alternate between side sloping and basic ridge crossing techniques and enjoy whatever this area has to offer in a fast pace. Depending on the pace and progress we will exit at Faya road or exit at fossil rock. This drive is for Intermediate and above level only. Please check if you have all required tools and gear on board as per your assigned drive level. When: 03 January 2020, Friday Meeting time: 06:45 AM, the convoy will move sharply at 07:00 AM Where: ADNOC Service station GPS Coordinate: https://goo.gl/maps/b3tDGLrAcs1AhxYa9 Level of drive: Intermediate and above Type of Car: Any proper 4x4 with front and back tow hooks and 10 inches of ground clearance. Plan: Drive and enjoy until about 11:30 AM, with some small breaks in between to have breakfast and snacks. What to bring along: Some snacks, plenty of water - whatever you like with little extra to share, smiles, stories, enthusiasm and willingness to learn.

  11. I was sweeping for a raptor, a tundra and a silverado last saturday, the path was flat afterwards 😂 but they were out there. but you are right they are not very common. but it was fun to see the massive tundra doing that.
  12. Yeah, never been a fan of the four doors, I have driven a couple of them and that extra weight just kills the power. It is a lot of difference driving a two door vs a four door.
  13. Im looking forward to see this on the sand. I was disappointed when I saw the Gladiator out there. I had to recover them many times. That long wheel base is awful.
  14. My alarm rang but I didn't hear it. Sorry guys I'll see you on the next one.
