    A very minor electrical problem created the 4x4 issue. All sorted out.

    Yeah the bull bar is fantastic, not only is it mean and strong, it is very light as well.

    Bronco belongs to a friend.

    Lol.. Storm Bhai, Yes this is an extension of the spirit of Land Rover that still lives within me...

    Overlanders, yes it will have running water, not sure about sleeping arrangements, as Mashallah I have a large family so certainly we cant all fit in roof top tent, however I can probably create some kind of sleeping quarters for myself.

    ALso will have onboard air compressor, fridge and navigation. Inshallah.

    No longer a big on larger tires as they draw too much power. I like my rides to be nimble..

    When will you unveil your Land Cruiser 80 series?

    Correct, the lights are permanent feature and yes holes have been made. Back in the day on my Defender I did not want any holes, and in that the lights were screwed on an acrylic sheet that was bent to the shape of the roof and pasted via strong bond. So if you dont want holes then you can do something like that.

    The snorkel is custom fabricated. Call me if you want one as well.

    Thanks my friend, but I am envious of your tent set up as well... looked pretty cozy... and yes no excuses for next time.. i want non stop action..
    By the way few of the guys from the trip are seriously contemplating joining you for the up coming april expedtion to up country..

    Ps.. no the lights were not a rip off from h2.. although the lights that i had on my defender were very much like h2. For any interested in them, they are called, clearance lights, just google "peterson armour clearance lights"
