Noticed the once mentioned by Parm when I checked the previous page!

Vikid,

Looks like both of you had a great time. Nice angles and lovely pics. The Jeep Cherokee seems like another boring American soft roader.

But your thread and pics clearly proved me wrong.

The frame and suspension are all custom made, with a double wishbone independent front and solid axle coil 3-link rear. It has a complete tubular carbon steel frame where the roll cage is an integrated part and the whole buggy has been designed to be FIA homologated to participate in international races.

-- well, depends on the terrain, somtimes in reverse

2- the fury got stuck or atleast t me looks stuck in many places how do u u rescue it
-- the stucks you saw are all delibrate; fury buggy is participating in the international desert challenge rally in last week oct and the guys were practicing how to operate anchor with the winch, there is a pic where the guy is holding the anchor.

3- the jeep liberty got stuck in between 2 dunes how would u pull it out from such a position.
-- with winch or you can even pull out using tow rope towards the direction there is a slope downwards.

whats the engine and mods dont to the 2 door cherooke. im more and more getting inspired to get myself one of those. not very expensive on the used car market and do some offorading myself.
-- No engine mods

Thanks for the info. I guess vortec is also used in Hummer. FIA homologated??? does it not require to produce 25 or so example of the vehicle for homologation.?
