Q. Tell us the background story of the car?
I started off-roading 20 years back in the UAE with a Jeep Cherokee, and since then I’m addicted to playing on the Sand with Jeeps. Cherokee 4L, Grand Cherokee V8, Liberty 3.7L Manual, Wrangler sport 3.6 Manual, and the Last one is the Commando Green Rubicon 2013!
Q. What modifications have been made, performance and cosmetic wise?
I did the basic modifications only; 2-inch Lift, 1.25’’ wheel spacers, larger Tires, Onboard twin Air Compressor, Steel front bumper, vented hood, High flow Intake and Exhaust, and Camouflaged Seat Covers.
Q. Do you have something that you consider to be a ‘special feature’ of the car?
I think the colour (Commando Green) which gives it a Military look. She doesn’t go fast but She can take me anywhere!
Q. What were your other options before you bought this car?
I’m always in LOVE with Jeeps. It’s a Jeep thing, You will not understand!
Q. How often do you use your car, and what activities do you take part in?
Although we got the Grand Cherokee as a family car and for long travels, the Wrangler is my daily use Vehicle. And as my wife got excited to learn desert driving and dune bashing as well, we use the Rubi for weekly off-roading trips, holidays, special events and adventures.
I’m a Marshal & Safety Manager at AD 4X4 Club.
Q. Are you planning any future modifications?
My current Rubi is for someone else to take care of, my plan now is the Rubi 2018!
Q. What 4×4 do you dream of owning?
We are living our dream as we own a Jeep, although my wife is leaning towards the Land Rovers, and I don’t mind dreaming also about the Mercedes-Benz G63 4X42! ■
