Phenomenal pictures Vikid!!! (I like the userID too)

Just a note - your intro thread will automatically lock/close in a few weeks, so i would suggest you open up a new thread in the 4x4 section where you can post more about your weekend adventures so that the thread can live a long life.

Welcome aboard!

Awesome pictures Vikram!! Welcome to T-Bhp!

Your pics are a delight to see. Initially when I checked the topic line i thought it was a normal Introduction thread and wanted to say HI. But your pics made me go back and check it again and confirm if I was in the right section.

May be you should add a little more to the "hi guys.."

Hey Vikid.. Those pics are quite wicked. By those pics, the vehicles seem monstrously powerful. You guys are having a blast in the sand to our Envy

There were so many pics which stood out. such as the one going up the tree. The fully customized jeep kicking up the sand.. arrgg the hummer stuck on the dune. Jeeps in awkward angles and positions. Keep sharing.

Question why the Snorkels on many of the vehicles including yours? where in dubai are they useful?

well, snorkels here help to get the clean and cool air in as you are shifting the air intake to a higher level.. specially in a sandy environment..
although you might lose few BHP but its compensated by the throttle body spacers used by all the guys using the snorkel..
