Re: Drivetrain Shudder!!!

Quick update.
I just had the propshaft/driveshaft replaced and the shudder from 25-40mph is gone!

The highway shudder (like a flat tire) is still a concern, but it seems MUCH better if I don't...

OK, they say that TSB 21-008-11 and 08-034-12 solves all the issues.
They are confident that I will not have a problem again.

Re: Desert Drive - Some slight body damage

They certainly would, but that screws up the on-road performance. So not really an option as I use it as a daily driver between Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Re: 18" or 20" wheels for sand driving?

20" are fine in the sand. Air down to about 18psi. No problems. Have a look at my posts and photos. 18" would be better, but 20" works well enough for the odd sand trip.

Also in the Middle East. Don't know why though...not a lot of snow here. They just mess up the hood when it is covered in dust. Creates a nice muddy mess
