  1. So, I leave the garage in ajman after having my front drive shaft serviced... arrive at the meetup point nearly 3-hours later. It's 2am, and I think... that's a few hours sleep, all good. I pull off the road, air down, and throw my jeep into 4H, thinking to find a sweet spot in the soft sands for my tent away from the road. But instead of a smooth pull away, i hear a loud *clunk clunk clunk* as my drive train begins to spin in its 4H state. Bad sound. Back into 2H.... no clunking. 4H... clunking. I've spent the last 2 hours trying to figure out where the fault is, and I can only assume it's in the transfer case, as everything else spins in 2H as well, minus the engaged transfer case gear, unless the now active torque is engaging the front differential in a funny way. Anyways, my xj needs to get sorted out further.... back to the garage. Apologies, Asif.
  2. Thank you for organising the drive @Asif Hussain i normally come in from Al Ain, your advice is excellent. I've had to spend the day at a garage in Ajman, however, so I'll be driving down from this area. I missed the carnity bbq fun 🤦‍♂️ @Imran Kashif I'm sorry to read about your friend and I hope everything is okay!
  3. A fantastic drive @Kailas Thank you for organising this, and for the camping part, too. I thought everyone would be sleeping by the time I got there, fortunately not as it was amazing company to spend the evening with! Special thanks to team @AlexM for the wonderful bbq chicken and salad 🙂 I think I discovered what those mini-watermelons are... a plant called Desert Squash (Citrullus colocynthis).
  4. Hi @Kailas I'm experiencing a bit of car trouble, I think it's just a battery, but waiting and seeing. Friday afternoon not an ideal time for car trouble 😂 This trouble threw off my afternoon timings, so not sure what time I'll be able to head out to the meet up point, but I'll keep you posted.
  5. I'm so sorry @Hisham Masaad I won't be able to make it. I went to leave work at noon, very excited about the drive... but my xj wouldn't start. It took me the last hour and a half to finally get it going and limp it home, but I need to go to a garage. Maybe just a battery or alternator, I don't know. Visiting the garage was not how I wanted to spend my afternoon 😭 Apologies again for this very last minute notice.
  6. Hi @Kailas If there is room, absolutely, I would love to join. I can join this evening for camping part, as well.
  7. Thank you for the fantastic drive @Mehmet Volga what a great way to spend a morning! I love the variety of terrain we went through.
  8. Another fantastic drive @GauravSoni Thank you again, I really enjoy these technical trips.
  9. Confirmed @Shaaz Sha And thank you for organising the drive, looking forward to it.
