A lot of effort did go into ensuring the car was sorted out thoroughly. I'm confident only because I have addressed every single aspect of the car.

I'm sure if you went through all aspects of your car you too will have the confidence to go long distance

May be a mental block!
your trip is an inspiration to me to explore places even if have to go all alone!

DKG,

NDMS never looked this good on any Jeep! Rarely do i get excited looking at something subtle. This one has real character.

Shift + Delete my theory : It takes huge MTs to make a bada$$ JEEP.

I totally agree with you. They are part of the Jeep mystique !! These are fantastic tyres. Except for slush/soft sand where some flotation may be desired they really are the best overall tyre for a Jeep. This tyre survived on Jeeps for decades. Why reinvent the wheel?

This tyre basically efficiently cuts through top soil and grips harder soil underneath. In clay it ends up working like a knife and the car sinks quickly. I am trying out another set of tyres for sluch and wet soil conditions. Will share my experiences once it starts to rain

Awesome jeep and pictures, just can't imagine how your mother would have taken this entire trip especially in a jeep.

Actually it becomes a lot easier when you have parents who have such a huge zest for life as mine do and they keep telling me " If I have to go I'd rather go up having fun !!"
Very true. nicely put. please multiply by n times.
