@ abhik
Thanks for your nice comments. These type of comments boosts our performance.
Well u asked for me standing while doing tough tracks.It is to get maximum vision of the track & jeep.
Although that track was very tough but GPW did it in first go. We IJC believe in extreme offroading.You can watch our videos on .
YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
search for
Islamabad Jeep Club
There are more than 250 videos of our skilled Offroaders doing different tracks.
Kindly comment on those videos both on youtube & here.
Thanks
Aamir Malik

He is tall and is standing on the brakes:

Ok Jokes apart, guess visibility off the terrain is important here and he just wants to be sure of where he puts his front wheels as you said.

Any other reason sir?

Sure will sir!! And just looking at the pics itself i can imagine that you guys are very skilled and your Jeeps are equally potent off-roading machines.

Just kidding Aamir Bhai, hope you dont mind. You will find a few of us here who have a nack of pulling off silly ones once in a while, just keeps the mood up...with that i might add DirtyDan is the best at it, trust me you would'nt even know what hit you!!!

@ abhik
The first lesson which i got way back in 70's was not to apply brakes while going down hills.One should go down on 4x4 special power.
I was not standing on brakes, Actually its MY STYLE.
Haha

No NO Sir you mis-understood me, i was joking about the standing on the brakes thing.

It was very evident that you were trying to locate the exact whereabout of the front wheels.

Maybe you missed out on this part

That is quite an overstatement Aamir Bhai, infact i am quite new to Jeeps but have become quite a fan, so much that cars dont seem to exist for me anymore.

It is heartening to see the original work horse still going strong and the best part is that you are using the Jeep for what it was meant to be used for. Off-roading.
Please put up your experiences you have had in restoring and keeping the jeep on the road.

Exactly what i had pointed out Ram.

Amir, are there as many MBs in Pakistan too? I wonder if you would also have to fish for spare parts in the local Chor Bazars as we do here. Its almost impossible to source parts of these machines any more, even in the Chor Bazars.

You were saying you picked this one up from the Scrap yard and restored it. Would you please give us some insight on that? Do you have pictures of the restoration process? It would certainly be interesting to see them if possible.
Please also shed some light on the 4X4 scene in Islamabad/Pakistan. The terrain should be very inviting for 4X4 addicts so i suppose, 4x4 offroading should be very popular.

Not many MB 1942 available in the market. You have to explore ppl who own these beauties but dont know the worth.
As far as parts are concerned, they are available in local market as well as in old spare parts market, all u have to do is to find the right place.
Sorry i dodnt have restoration period pictures. Actually i restored in 1990 and at that time i never thought of taking pictures of my jeep restoration.
We have lot of terrains in this region. U can see them in our pictures.

Default Ford GPW in action

This is Ford GPW 1942 in original petrol engine. Most of the parts are original.
I changed the rims because when i restored this in 1990 original rims were not found but now i have them.
