    Slow down and enjoy life. It's not only the scenery you miss by going too fast - you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.

    This is the unforgiving Thar Desert of Sindh,which does not absolve novice drivers!

    And look what comes to its rescue, the Un stuckable, the original CJ Jeep. Now that should be The Real King of the Road, the Original Old Jeep. Always digs out the stuck up old "Wanna Be" Jeep Like..

    Don't get me wrong, I like LC, I had owned one, Model year 1997 in year 2000. I had the Virginia number plate with SUV KING, on it. I still have that number plate for memory, the SUV is long sold. Wish, could have it again, soon, Insha-Allah.

    @ Thanks, timelessfahad bhai

    @storm, agreed, but if you want to have a Real Fun in the sand or out in the Real rough territory, with your Landcruiser or Range Rover, don't forget to take the Real Jeep with you. You will need it to dig out your Favorite Toy....ota out of mud or sand.

    Not cursed...just no match for the one, and the only, JEEP.
    I owned a '41 Willys, MB-38...wow what a tough old thing. None of these pretenders come even close!

    In my humble opinion,man and machine are 2 inputs and go hand in hand, therefore if u know how to ride a jeep such problems [ref LC above],would'nt be there in the first place

    The desert safari that I have been to in Dxb prove that driving skills play a big part.

    As far as the Good ol' CJ are concerned,they are good if one wantz to go for a short spin, but the LCs and the RRs are cosy and staunch machines,literally covering miles of sand as fast as a Black Mamba

    Brothers


    Nothing is wrong with LC as it got stuck in sand, these petty things do happen sometimes, sometimes due to driver's mishandling etc.


    One must never cruise desert with only vehicle; as it is adviced by many experts that atleast three SUVs/4x4 should accompany.

    This really is a sad scene for the LC. This beast probably never thought it would have to go through such humiliation.

    Most probably inexperienced driver. I have never seen a LC stuck in desert safari. They usually driver in a bunch of three. And compared to dubai's desert safari, this (shown in photo) is nothing.
