You should be OK but will need to air down and engage four wheel drive!

Guys, what do you think about bbq in the mountains? I have all necessary equipment, like portable grill, umbrellas, tables, chairs etc.

Should be fine, weather allowing! Will be cooler the higher we get and so long as you don't have a fire on the ground and ensure you clear up properly, it's great! Please ensure you bring a good strong garbage bag too and leave enough time for your coals to cool off so you can take them with you!
Hi Jo. I was at Jais last week. There are metal cans to throw away the used coals. Washrooms are working fine, with lights and water. One should always carry own trash bags and ensure complete cleanliness.
Hey T,
Yes I remember now it's quite civilised in places - was thinking wild Oman-style where you have to take everything with you and then take everything away! >:)

Due to this I didn't fit any sorts of mods on it. (Money also :grin: ) .Before l buy any sorts mandatory items. Just want to know if I can do offroading with it?
It would be a huge help if i can physically do it once with you guys.

Hello Sajid and welcome to Dubai Offroaders. Your car is more than capable to join our drives. Please press attend and come.

Anyway it’s 20% car and 80% driver when it comes to off-roading.

By default i have none of those. Which should I buy to start? Just to see if i can perform this what are the minimum things that can help me to get away with for one day?
To be honest dont wanna put money before I can feel either I can do it or not. Buying below equipments will cost me a good money I presume. 🙄
Thanks for the quick response.

f) Offroad flag attached to vehicle.
The list of things you’ll need for your first drive is below:

a) Fully functional 4x4 vehicle with full tank of fuel. (You have that).
b) Compatible radio pre-programmed to DO frequencies. (Very important so we can communicate with you during the drive).
c) Refreshments for you and your passengers (if you have them). (So that you and your passengers stay hydrated).
d) Offroad flag attached to vehicle. (Very important so that your car is visible to the car behind you while tackling dunes).

The above list will not cost you too much. Hoping to see you soon!
