Welcome to Team-BHP. The pics are terrific. Dubai is just the place for offroading.

Hi Vikram,

Thanks for the amazing pics from all the offroading trips you have been for man. Your XJ looks just out of the world.

Just wanted to find out if the little flag rods that you guys have on your jeeps are readily available or have you got them fabricated? I would surely like to pick one for my Jeep. Please do share the costing for the same and also if they can be rolled up into a suitcase while transportation or they need to be brought erect.

Thanks and awaiting your reply.

Where was this ? Moreeb area or Hamim or Madina Zayed ?

The pics of the Oryx seem to be taken near Al Faqa, close to Al Maha resort off AL Ain highway.

Is the earlier picture near pink rocks ?

flag poles are available here, the one i have is for a quad bike and is customised to fit on to my XJ"s roof rack..
these poles are quiet tall and might be difficult to roll into a suitcase.. the costs would range from 2000 - 8000 INR as multiple quality/length are available..

what you plan to go for, a SWB or a LWB pajero, cause wrangler is a SWB?

if you planning to go for a LWB, then try a visit to toyota, as Al Futtaim is having a mega SALE on its vehicles!
