Sorry between work, family and trying to locate another truck for my 2015 expo, I had no time. Promise to link up when I'm in your area again. I'm not interested in JK8. I personally think their useless. The bed is not functional
great! if everything goes well (inshallah) my V8 conversion should be debugged by then and ready to show off
Eid Mubarak in advance !

(oops did not know the JK8 is only show)

Ha'il trip is officially over.

Jeep survived the 3000+km drive

Need to replace the fan clutch (it's locked - on position) that would have been ugly if it was on the off position lol it would probably be hot all the time.

Clutch retainer clip broke off. it hold the clutch pedal to the rod. I zipped tied it for the time being until I get back here. I'll probably leave it like that. it seems to hold better than stock.

Rear track bar reloc bracket came loose. fixed that before I left.

Other than that it was a great drive. really love the OME lift. works great and handels load excellent.

H3 Alpha snapped the AC belt and was forced to drive the 600+km without AC.

nuff talk.. here's the first part of the trip. enjoy

Drove 30km cross the dunes to get to Jubbah (a city near Ha'il) to check it out



took a quick tour then decided to head back to Ha'il and here's Chinook flexing in Moab of Saudi



Palmtrees as a reminder that this is not moab but better



Here's a close to the front end.. you can see where the sand blasted the front end on one of my trips to Dammam. Notice the SS



Since my Jeep has sand tires on it. we decided to let the H3 play



Got air?





Here's my friend shocked about what he did and how he could make it up the hill





Camel patrol



Red Rock + Red Rock







Something common in this pic.. Jeff dont answer



Saudi has a lot more than sand. here's proof





Chinook absorbing the view at 1400 meters <-- man i'm not used to saying that



Life is a game.



Potential trail here. I marked it and will come back for it with my JK. a good 8 out of 10 type trail

Moab Arabia





Alpha



SBS



TBC..

I think your TJ is beautiful and unique as is. the protective coating that your jeep has is that sort of like a peel-off plastidip latex type paint? or is it something else? How do you protect your frame from all that sand blasting?

It is expensive! have you tried calling it's probably the most expensive way of communication after contacting a spaceship lol

the idea is to carry it for emergencies only.

Thats a single coat paint. it comes off easy. I did it because it was cheap and the factory paint was getting bad. if my parts show up on time. I will repaint it and install the new parts. if not, then i'm going to wait until next summer when we build/rebuild our cars and trucks

Thanks!


Here are the rest of the pics from our trip







perfect place to relax?



lions back?

















a warning sign









Turnado









Ha'il is known for their generosity and hospitality.



This was in fact a home to a family a long long time ago. This type of house is made out of clay and wood. the top is made out of palm tree leaves. whats interesting is that the temperatures inside of whats left of this home is significantly lower then outside. not just the shade, I believe that the airflow, ventilation and clay insulation help a lot. I've always wondered how people were dealing with heat without AC. This was a great experience. Places like this should be protected from any sort of damage as it resembles history in the region.

We had a break before we got here. but we Just had to stop and absorb the view. too good to just drive by





perfect optional obstacle

















H3 owner and friend Haitham. soon to have a Jeep







and this is my favorite sunset shot



as you saw. most of those pics were landscape. mainly showing the terrain. I have GPS coordinates of all this and will be using it as a reference. Next is to start naming things and going through them one by one and have accurate maps. This place exceeded my expectations and as you can see has a lot potential. I think with the right push, we will be able to make this happen. I wish I didn't live 6 hours away

temps were around 100-110F so winter time averages around 70s.

now wheres my parts! I'm tired of the wait Is it October yet
