  1. Sorry @JeromeFJ I'll have to remove myself, my AC Compressor started smoking earlier and making a weird grinding sound. I tried poking around with it, but... I think the internals fused together and I can't seem to get it to declutch. Back to the garage we go.... 😝
  2. Thank you for organising this drive, @DP1011 Amazing way to spend the morning. And special thanks to @Looper for making it happen for us WL folks Great footage @azad!
  3. Really sorry @Islam Soliman I have to remove myself. My exhaust broke on last weekend's drive and the shop still isnt finished with it 😭
  4. Hi RizBajwa, Welcome to the club. For an old Pathfinder, you're best bet is just do some googling for an economical rear locker. For the money, I went a Powertrax No-Slip unit in my old Cherokee XJ. Fantastic little unit, cheap, and because it's an auto-locker, it's essentially 'always ready'. It only kicks in when one wheel starts to spin with no need to engage on my part. My theory was... when I need locking, it's already too late to engage it. And it directly swaps with the spider gears, so easy to pull back out and return to oem if needed. Any diff locks that require engaging are going to cost money and complications, as they require either an electrical, hydraulic or pneumatic system to support. It just depends on budget, as you say... ARB can be pricey. For workshops, I've used Icon 4x4 in Dubai. They work on anything (no joke), are dedicated to the offroading market, and their team is solid.
  5. Thank you for the drive @Simon D... you promised rollercoaster, and you delivered rollercoaster. Such a great way to spend the morning!
  6. Hi @Simon D Thank you for organising the drive, really looking forward to it. Could I ask for a meeting location pls? Or even a general area of our start? Im driving out tonight to camp for the night, as I want to be close by first thing in the morning. Cheers.
  7. Thank you for the drive, @Ale Vallecchi Beautiful area and the dunes were great fun!
  8. Hey gents, Sorry, I'm about 15 minutes away and my engine started having overheating issues... no idea why. I've tried a few things, but cant seem to get more than a few mins without overheating again. Safest to let it rest, and turn around. Apologies.
  9. Sorry @Varun Mehndiratta I have to remove myself. Issues with my differentials that needs sorting 😭
  10. Thank you very much for organising this drive @Varun Mehndiratta A fantastic way to spend the morning - that wet sand was surely a different driving experience! The convoy was amazing... very large, but just kept pushing through the whole adventure. Glad the hose got sorted @Patrick van der Loo probably a better plan than rebuilding with sub-par materials/connections 😅
  11. Thank you very much @Kailas for leading this incredible trip... such a fantastic weekend, and you made the route superb! Great highlights along the way. And such an amazing convoy of drivers... so many laughs and smiles, truly made it all so much better. And a special thanks to @Gertjan for providing such spectacular photos on top of being second lead.... you didn't miss a beat 😎 Already can't wait for the next one.
  12. Hey Carnity, A co-worker/friend of mine has a daughter heading off to university in the next few weeks, and they wanted a real dune bash/desert experience before she leaves. She asked me, but I only have the one passenger seat (rear has been removed). I have another neighbour who I've offroaded with who would normally be up for it, but his engine is undergoing an overhaul. Basically, I'm wondering if anyone lives in/near Al Ain, is up for a bit of dune bashing, and would enjoy some company - bit of dune bashing, some bbq'ing. My friend is more than happy to pay, so maybe even a desert guide if someone knows one, that could work as well. They would need to be picked up here in Al Ain, which is why nearish here is better, and I'll be along as well, with another friend who was interested in joining. Anyways, just throwing this out there. Cheers all! Brett
