That is very easy to do, any mechanic can do it. It will take max 10 minutes to do ;)

Thanks Nasser.

Would you care to recommend any particular garage as the one place I trust and go to is in Dubai and its a bit much to drive all the way over there for a small thing like this.

Please suggest some options with regards to this.

Your post brings to mind a certain friend who was offering laminated certificates not too long ago.

LOL Nabil where are you.

Driver Education and 4x4 training

4x4 is very much controled sport in South Africa where the exam to become a 4x4 guide and instructor is a national exam. You may only lead a drive if you have obtained the status of a 4x4 Guide .

All certification obtained from any 4x4 training facility is nationally recognised no matter what club you belong to.

While on vacation I attended such a course, there are various levels of driver training and a lot of the emphsis is on safety and the impact on what we do to nature. (hence my obsesion with litter in the desert) Recoveries take a fair bit longer due to all the safety steps involved.

In Abu Dhabi there is a highly qualified driver Instructor who is totally amazing to watch his car control both on tar and on the sand. Unfortunately he may not train outside his employment :-(

We must chat more whem on the sand together

K&N Air filter
Borla Cat back exhaust
31" Rims
Warn bumpers Front & Rear
Warn tank gaurd
Garmin 60c GPS

All this could only take me so far technically. I had to match the Jeeps modifications by increasing my own personal skills. The idea was to know my and the Jeeps limitations and drive within these limitations.

As for trips. I am a Team leader (Marshal)in our club and regually lead trips from easy to extreme.
