Jeep Ladies

Carol Cooney from the Sun Dubai office has been an offroad fanatic for ages - when I first met her she was driving a lovely short wheel base Land Rover Defender 90. She's now moved onto a short wheel base Nissan Patrol via a 110 Defender Tomb Raider. The Patrol's just for 'normal trips' though... The real fun's going to be had in her heavily customised Jeep Wrangler, which she hopes to drive in local rallies.

Carol had asked people in the office if anyone could help her out with some promo pics of her and co-driver Be. I volunteered Mrs Saul for the job, so we went with Carol and Be for a short drive today, along with another amateur photographer from Sun Dubai, Kevin.

Mrs Saul got some great shots.

Unfortunately my double chin and I weren't able to fit in to the rally seats - they're fixed in place and positioned to be just right for Carol, who's a wee bit shorter than I am.

The area we were in is actually where I'd planned to go for a drive last week, but we didn't quite make it. I'm planning to be there this coming weekend though - some great big dunes to climb, big bowls and good slipfaces galore.

All the best to Carol and Be in their rallying endeavours! (More pics here.)

Some great shots (as per normal) by Mrs Saul!

Woooww! I think it's so nice to be there too. Wish I was there... But one thing I noticed with your Jeep guys and gals, there's no such Jeep Bumpers installed on it. Is it designed as is or what???

The bumpers come from a local custom outfitter...

Oh I see. The customization done was really impressive.
