    Gentlemen,
    What a pleasure it is to give a recommendation for someone so totally interested in 4x4 machines. It you want to learn, and experiment, and go worng and then try to make it right, go for the Suzuki SJ410. I have told you all about the auction today behind jail road in Lahore. Starts at 35,000 you should be able to get a vehicle between 100,000 to 150,000 they already have a diesel engine. I am sorry I cant give time as I am out of the county and the internet connection is weak. But i am very happy to see your will to get a 4X4 machine. Wishing you the best.

    Ten Stupid Things men do to mess up their four wheel drive

    1. Ignoring wheel cheat
    (men know - friends are important -- tires are good friends - treat them well)

    2. Using too much speed or power
    (many times, faster than too slow is too fast)

    3. Steering at standstill
    (power steering is a wonderful tool to break tie rods etc)

    4. Using the clutch the same way as on pavement
    (if you don't know what "starting in gear" means and you still use the clutch to regulate speed)

    5. Following one's gut feeling
    (most likely it'll be wrong - humans have no genetic imprint for driving cars yet)

    6. Straddling obstructions
    (men should know - they would not take anything high between their legs either)

    7. Rushing through water
    (humans want to rush away from danger and get in trouble in the process)

    8. Keeping thumbs in steering wheel
    (bruised or broken thumbs really hurt)

    9. Hanging head out of window
    (makes you "feel" you are in control - but you'll miss potential danger on the other side)

    10. Using 4WD after getting stuck
    (now that is really stupid!)

    @KhakiMB,
    Bro as i had told before, i have a swear back condition, even got operated and had a disc removed, so i really need to get the most comfortable 4X4(in my spending range). I believe sj410 is s Kamani thing, i mean that is supposed to be very uncomfortable, can we get it changed( i think we cant, but u let me know), so it should be a spring suspension, and this is all on the premise that sj410 has a kamani system, if not then we can go for it, else u can recommend something different. Called Shani yesterday he was a bit busy, will try to call him today again. Lets see what does he have in store.
    About this auction stuff, can u let me know about coming auctions too in lahore, caz i read ur prior msg a bit late. Thanx bro

    i iwll be using it more in the city lahore and occassionally to drive to Peshawar, Islamabad, south bound, Sahiwal etc. and yes offroad too, may some day from Peshawar to DGKhan to Quetta to Thatta to Karachi and then back. Really want to, lets see what happens. so what do u see jeep bro, where to start to realise this wish.

    @adnan2709 bro I dont think you can buy a vehicle in your budget which can take you all these places with your back condition. well i am not giving up, still thinking!!!
    To all the extreme drivers, please come offroad like ME to keep others safe on the roads.

    Hi Adnan, (BAD NEWS / GOOD NEWS)
    Are you planning to buy/make the 4X4 as your second vehicle? If that is the case you might be alright, but if this is going to be used as your primary means of transport then my friend the doc has bad news for you. Some of the buses abroad have shocks placed under the seats as well. Check that out. 4X4 machines are not as comfortable as normal cars and the ones which are comfortable are out of your price range. There are some defenders with customs/tax issues in Chitral, keep that as an option. All the best!!!

    @Khaki & Jeepoholic,
    Yes this is quite a worry for me, the back issue, Shani has been very helpful in trying to find me a vehicle, but my back does worry me, Me and shani talked about sj410 last night on the fone. But frankly as much as i am interested in getting a 4x4, my back is scaring me, going to doc today to discuss the same issue. Damn, only had 3 interests, jeeps, sky diving and bungee jumping(done it). So now seems wont be able to complete the trio.

    @Shani. I think i am going to drop this idea
