Abdul-Hakeem I'll just occasionally add more as I take them. These are this week.

The Jeep "Rakhshan" moving through small dunes:



Looks like a bad situation, he was fine and passed through, right.



An older model of off-road vehicle:



The Jeep "Ghulam Basha" (mine) breaks through the dunes. You can see the path taken if you search for the tire marks.



Typical slope, this one is easy. Some are very steep, on one I felt the back rising and had to accelerate. This is why the license plate looks like that.



An overview of the land:




Time for Turkish Coffee. Two of my companions, Tariq and John.

Abdul-Hakeem Great photos, finally saw them. The Jeeps are all very well equipped. Saving someone from the sand is a great feeling, we found an old man stuck far out today, he wasn't there too long thank God, all alone. We pulled him out and he was so happy, this is the duty of every Jeep driver in every nation when possible.

wat3rdog I grew up not to far from Death Valley in California which saw temps near 120 deg F or 48c. Love the pics. Keep them coming.

rmurph3 those places look amazing!!

TheDesertOutlaw Thanks, Abdul! We had a great time in the deserts of Northern Mexico with our Jeeps.

Abdul-Hakeem Those are nice pictures, the last one looks just like Syria to me, the rest could be Saudia. It's a good idea to use the engine heat to cook, I make a small fire. It's more efficient to use engine heat, great idea, I can use fire for coffee.

The temperature you described is identical to the temperature in our deserts at the moment. This region looks similar to Laguna Salada, Baja, Mexico. Here are a few pictures.

DieLawn19k Wow, no diesels is very surprising. And here I was all set to sneak off to Saudi Arabia to grab one if I ever found myself sitting in Kuwait for nine months. Guess I'll just have to look elsewhere!

tcass very nice.....glad to hear they are spreading in popularity. still, i also wonder why the diesel isn't popular there. enjoy....

Abdul-Hakeem Actually, DieLawn, we don't get the diesel Wranglers. I don't know why not, as we have other diesel vehicles. Regardless they really are spreading. One old bedouin man tried to buy my JK two days ago, and a Wrangler-only accessories store has just opened in Jeddah. The bedouin who run the air compressor tent near us bought an old TJ after seeing Jeeps airing up all the time. The split is about 50/50 between the 2-door and the 4-door, but very few people have soft tops other than myself, probably due to sand issues. I'm slowly making a photo collection of "Saudi Jeeps" which I'll post the best and strangest of when I have enough. Many of them are customized.

The good news is that Saudi Jeeps come with a large transmission cooler so they handle this kind of land very easily. This is causing the Wrangler to become very popular here, where the Land Cruiser and Nissan Patrol used to rule. Now sometimes 50% of the vehicles in the desert on a weekend are Wranglers.

That's what I like to hear, Jeeps are taking over! I bet y'all have the diesel wranglers too don't ya?
