Beejay,
More pics from my last offroading trip. It was a trial run after the jeep buildup, hence no hardcore activities.

Sorry about the poor photo quality.

BEEM3R, You are right. Mine is one of the very few Yj's which exists on UAE roads. Most of them are either abandoned or scrapped.

Default OTR after the rains

Friends,
I have been longing for an OTR for longtime. Never had a chance due to hectic work schedules. It has been raining in Dubai since last few days and last saturday afternoon after the rains stopped I decided to take the wrangler to the desert.

I knew the soft sand would've got firmer due to rains and it will be easy for offoading. So I decided to check out a nearest OTR location since it was already 4:00 PM and getting dark.

As expected the sand was firm and I decided to explore it even without reducing the air pressure on tyres.

Eveything went well until the last hour.Just before heading home I decided to take up the steepest hill and got stuck badly.

If you notice the wheels are spinning in many occasions, thats because I did not deflate the tyres and they are still running with 30 Psi pressure.

There were so many passer by 4x4's Nissan Patrols and Land Cruisers and Pajero's came to help But I forgot to take my tow rope and the guys who came to help also didnt had one.

Finally after wating for half hour and digging out sand from under the wheels with bare hands, one good samaritan 4x4 came with tow rope.

Guess who came to pull me out!! I was shocked to see that monster and my modded wrangler with 33" tyres and almost 6.5 feet tall looked puny infront of that beast.

To be continued with the recovery pics.

Default International CXT in Action

Recovery.

Friends, the good samaritan who came to pull me out was nothing but an International CXT!

I just googled for International CXT! and look what I found. courtesy wikipedia.

"CXT

The International CXT or Commercial Extreme Truck is a very large pickup truck. Introduced in September 2004, the CXT is 21 ft (6.4 m) long with a 9 ft (2.7 m) tall cab. It is the largest production pickup truck on the market, its curb weight of 14,500 lbs is around twice the weight of a Hummer H1.[4][3] Its GVWR is 25,999 lbs.[5]
The CXT is built on an International 7300 chassis and is equipped with the DT 466 diesel engine and is capable of towing up to 20 tons while its air-ride cab and individual bucket seats offer a smooth ride for the driver and 4 adult passengers. The CXT's interior includes luxury options such as leather, DVD, and satellite radio.[3] Mechanical features include air brakes, an Allison 2500HD automatic transmission, and 4 wheel drive. The CXT uses a Meritor MTC 4208 two-speed transfer case. The CXT gets 8-10 miles per gallon, and has a 70 gallon tank.[3] The CXT is priced from $93,000 to $115,000.[3]
The CXT is built at the company's assembly plant in Garland, TX.[2] "


International XT - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

CXT - The largest production pick up on earth that can tow upto 20 tons!

No wonder it pulled out my wrangler in literally 5 seconds and in that process Wrangler got lifted 2 feet above the ground.Sorry couldnt take pics of that since all these was over in less than a minute.

While the International CXT guy was helping me, few kids with their quad bike also came for assistance.

Look at the pics

While trying to pull myself out, I reduced the tyre pressure to 20 pounds or less. So I had to visit the nearest gas station to refill the tyres before I head back home.

Default See what I've got for my Wrangler!

Friends,

Its been long time since I've updated this thread.

After getting stuck badly many times during my offroading trips, I started seriously thinking of buying a winch to stop this misery.
Checked out all the off road accessory shops here in Dubai for a 8000lbs+ winch from all major manufacturers like Warn, Ramsey, Britpart, Milemarker, Smittybilt and still I wasnt sure which one to go for due to two reasons.
1) it wasnt fitting my budget or too expensive and 2) it was too heavy ( more than 40 kg) I was basically looking for a lighter winch which will fit my budget.And to my luck last weekend I stumbled upon something which I have been searching for ages.

A whopping 10500 lbs winch which is only 30kg in weight with ultra strong sythentic rope and for a bargain price from a reputed brand! What more do i need!! I just picked it up straight away.

See pics for details
