This Jeep life of yours, many people will give an arm and a leg for.

Much luck on your journeys in the Rub Al Khali - The Empty Quarter and beyond!

Superb modifications on your jeep.

What is the brand of the tent you bought?
Is it an Universal type?

Maybe I ll land up for that trip across the Rub al Khali.
Us being namesakes and Jeep mad and desert crazy and all!
Wilfred Thesiger said: 'No man can can live in the Desert and emerge unchanged. He will carry, however faint, the imprint of the desert, the brand which marks the nomad.'

This truth is so very deep in me and affects me so much - after my trip last year to Wadi Rum, in Jordan.

Thanks.

I have an ARB Awning on my roof rack and always carry an ARB Room Accessory inside my Jeep. This is universal type and can be fitted on any vehicle. It is available in various sizes, mine is 2.5m x 2.5m.

You are most welcome. Winter months are the best time to undertake this trip.

Regeared (diff ring and pinion) to 4.56, make Whitelk. Break-in complete (1000 kms) and oil change done. Noticeable improvement in low end torque, no significant change in fuel mileage.
