Offroading is generally a group activity. How can you name it lone wolf?

Although, I can relate that name to offroading in one sense. I remember seeing a Chuck Norris movie in the early 80s, it was called Lone wolf McQuade. He drove a nasty looking offroad vehicle in that. It was very impressive to see him drive through wild terrain. I had never seen offroading before that.

See here : IMCDb.org: 1983 Dodge Ramcharger in "Lone Wolf McQuade, 1983"

I did not mean name the group lone wolves!

I do not like being categorised as a "Pune Nomad" or any other group for that matter, I am a jeep and outdoor enthusiast and just enjoy meeting like minded people.

OT question: The dif between a 540 and 550 is only seating capacity right? The 540 was 6 seater and 550 a 8 seater. Anything else?[/quote]

Hi Tejas Not only seating capacity but this has a xd3p 2.5ltr engine. front disc brakes, lsd in the rear diffrential all company fitted. THis is a ex army jeep and there where civilian 550 without all this and a 2.1 ltr engine. experts please correct me if i am wrong.

Yes very Samurai true offroading is a group activity and yes we were all lone Hungry nomadic wolves who just packed up and went and quenched are hunger of offroading.
