Wow what a great drive it must have been.I am amazed all the cars are spick and span with not a speck of dust on them given the tons and tons of sand around.Even the tyres do not seem to gather any sand on the them.

That's true. Cars look like just out of showroom and remain that way. Even the tyres look brand new.

I went yet again last weekend and this time with GoPro. Haven't got time to upload my videos to youtube yet. Will do it soon, meanwhile here is the video of dune shaving by a fellow rider Swarup when he went on a desert ride few weeks back. Enjoy!

Nice experience and write up.

If you there, i'd suggest you do a one day course on desert driving. Well worth it:

Thanks Tejas! I had read your thread earlier. It's very informative and gives all relevant details for getting formal training for desert driving. The person I am going with used to be a trainer himself and not just for 4X4 but even for dirt bikes. However now he goes just for fun every weekend.

You should check out the other vehicles that he owns.
Thats Oommen Jacob, and he has quite an eclectic collection of offroaders (and some other interesting vehicles like a Lancia Delta Integrale). And a garage to look after all of them

Default Seven Jeeps you'll never see on public roads...unless you're in Moab, Utah, at Easter

As is the practice for the last 13 years, for 2015 Easter, Jeep will send seven models to Moab. As usual, they range from mild to wild.

Quote:
For the last 13 years, Jeep has prepared a small array of its vehicles for the annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah, and 2015 is no exception. Enhanced with an array of accessories from Mopar, Chrysler's in-house aftermarket super store, and styling concepts from Jeep's design department, the Easter Jeeps showcase ideas and parts, displayed at a venue that's a target market extraordinaire.
The seven variants are,
