Should you be seeing that kind of smoke on open throttle?

While you're attempting the sideways climb, perhaps you should try reverse as well.

Yes sir, but we could experiment 75 to 105 degress if there is no space!

Reverse is actually pretty simple.

And Finally congrats to Sharat for becoming a true blue offroader who spends any free time available to play with the Jeep!

NExt, maybe you should try some slush or a sand dune!

Samurai as you progress with your offroad explorations in that gorgeous countryside think of doing an TBHP offroad camp once a year during monsoons and we'll all drive up for some fun.

Samurai can you put some distance markings after the hill and then try to do a long jump and see if you can set a SWB Jeep jumping record . It can be attempted before the sideways climb.

maybe the tyres.
but the gurkha video on youtube shows an even steeper incline and shows loads of torque!!

anyway its good to know you are gradually overcoming the fear factor.

Come on guys, you are having too much fun at the expense of Samurai. Stop pulling his legs, novices like me are watching his posts and gaining lot of knowledge about living with a jeep. Lets encourage him (of course after the teasing part is over).

Cheers!

Samu san you should get the pump checked me feels. Also the radiator shroud is not perfect you ask me, it has too much of gaps/leakage on top and yes taking to dealer will be a good idea.

Samurai, the way you are going off roading and hill climbing with your Jeep, I guess, this is what we can expect next huh?



And this

Boss those are monster jeeps the second video is from Iceland and im guessing even the first one is from thereabouts. Dune buggies are mainly used i the dessert or seaside (where ever there is sand)
And the way you are going, you are a damned good beginner. I hope I get this good as well, in the beginning. Keep it up swordman!!

Congrats Samurai, even before opening the thread I knew what was coming. The hill will now be completely depressed and devastated.

My, my!! I just made a simple comment and look at the remarks!

Guys, I also know what would happen on a diagonal climb. Because of my age and friendship, I have the right to pull Sharath's leg. What say?
