You should have atleast got the side steps removed during such attempts.
@ hrag> I support the exact reason for buying a 4x4 - as in your pics.

Better to have a bent side step than a damaged running board. A saviour of sorts.

Gr8 pics Hrag of the safari 4x4. This where & what it should be. Pic 3 shows the rear sagging down quite a bit - why? Was it loaded or the suspension is supect?

Articulation (limited as it appears) sir.

jaysmokesleaves - you're absolutely right. The running boards are lifesavers - though they bring down the GC, they take the beating saving the rest of the underbody.

Note: all pictures of the Safari in this thread are when 4WD was enabled. Except for the sand blasting pic (which was 4H), the rest are all in 4L. Please do not attempt similar terrain in a 2WD Safari. Even in 4H / 4L, it is best to have a spotter who can guide you.

@ gops: great pictures bro. very well shot and great locations too.

@ ravi: this thread is flooding with silver LXs. nice tyre and alloy combo buddy but please consider adding rear mudflaps. its looking a bit odd. black sparco mudflaps will look great.
