Tell us the background story of the car…
I’ve always been in love with Jeeps, and the name itself always represented power and off-road capabilities that any proper 4×4 was a Jeep to me growing up. Moreover, no other vehicle provides so much potential in being able to modify, change looks or drive anywhere like a Jeep.

What modifications have been made, performance and cosmetic wise?
Oh, that’s a long list that never ends. Currently I have on it, AEV savegre wheels with Good Year Duratrac off-road tyres, H&R 1 inch wheels spacers, 3 inch Fabtech suspension lift kit with dirt logic racing shocks, Fabtech suspension 8 Flex adjustable arms with 5 tons jonny joints, front and rear synergy HD drive shafts,TeraFlex HD tyre carrier, front and Rear HD monster forge TeraFlex tracbars, FOX ATS steering stabilizer, TeraFlex front flex disconnect able sway links, Warn Stubby bumper, AEV heat reduction hood, Warn 10000lbs winch, Rigid SR series amber 10inch light bar, injen technology cold air intake with scoop, rugged ridge throttle body spacer, RIPP thermostat, AFE 3inch Mack Force straight pipe with a Borla XR1 muffler, 48watts windshield lights, 50inch 480watts roof light bar, rugged ridge tail lights, 10inch android screen, smittybilt rock sliders side steps.

Do you have something that you consider to be a ‘special feature’ of the car?
Well I guess it’s the color, my Anvil Jeep is not a very common color to see around although in my opinion it’s a very cool color. However, every Jeep is unique in its own way as it usually reflects its owner

What were your other options before you bought this car?
The Ford Raptor was an interesting option, but I’ve always been extra attracted to Jeep.

How often do you use your car, and what activities do you take part in?
I’d be mostly using it on weekends, I manage the Ultimate Jeep Club, so we always arrange different events/drives with various entities through out the country from police departments, to media entities and various organizations, yet every now and then I just get an urge to take a small group of well trusted experienced drivers and go reshape some of the UAE desert dunes.

Are you planning any future modifications?
These things they don’t get planned, they happen… could be anything whether adding or improving an existing modification.

What 4×4 do you dream of owning?
I would always have a Jeep as the potential it has is like no other vehicle, but if I would be changing, then It won’t be a 4×4… it will be a 6×6 AMG63 Mercedes, that’s Beast…! ■
