we decided to push thru with our plan since its a \"by invitation only\"

minimal fee was paid for the said event.

good company and seeing other 4x4ph members/offroad racers.

thanks everyone!

meet up time:5am(Capas town proper)SHARP

after 20kms(town proper to sta.juliana) with numerous check point we started our LAHAR trail at exactly 6AM  to avoid the start of the military exercises scheduled that day(7am-5pm)

while waiting for clutch and monmendoza(recovery mode of 2 rigs stock on a long stretch river sand trail which i had a difficult time too)
video of the river sand trail will be posted next time.

local rigs(for hire)...not the tourist butt!

after 15 minutes of nature tripping they finally came back from the lahar river bed.

landslides.... :-/

last lahar river crossing before our camping area

after 30kms of lahar trail(before 8am) we decided to look for a good place to campout.

I love me some Daihatsu but the Toyota BJ70 is my dream offroader.  I assume that\'s the latest model?

Great pics!

@lioncubb, mcguire,neen and james,

thanks guys. It was actually a landcruiser club relief mission so I have to bring my 2 land cruisers
because there were many of us. But I invited my 2 feroza friends to join us. :)

And yes, a relief mission is a good excuse to the Mrs. to go offroading, hehehe

Have you noticed the black Feroza with 35\" tires? Yes you read it right 35\" tires. I have driven it
and it lacks power, but we plan to change the transfer case with a lower gearing. We are currently
looking at a Dana 300 transfer case with a high ratio of 1:1 and a low ratio of 1:2.55 I think. This
will give a 50% improvement int torque compared to the stock feroza low ratio of 1:1.75.

Sorry Have not been active in forum lately. So many office problems have prevented me. But I have gradually
modified my rigs the past 10 months. I have installed ARB lockers, lift kits, bash plates and winch on my Land Rover defender.
I have also bought ARB bumpers for my 4 door and 2 door jeep JK rubicons and lastly
I have now completed the items I need to further improve my Feroza. I will probably post the build kit
this march.

coming soon!!!

1. Front Kaiser lockers for the Feroza
2. Rear Hilux axles for the Feroza
3. Rear Eaton Govlock G80 lockers for the hilux axles for the Feroza. :)
4. modified front and rear bumpers for the feroza.

I\'d love to see some pics of your other trucks. You should put some up on your profile.

Hi,  my name is karl.  is there a village close by that desert like place?  the government should build some kind of supports for those residents there such as school, drinking water source and etc.  hey guys, is there a place I can buy one snorkel kit like you guys had on those daihatsu there?  How about the lift kits and roll cage?  thanks.  karl.

hi karl, this is the mount pinatubo that erupted and cause global cooling last june 1991.
There are resettlement sites away from this place but the natives on this place prefer
a nomadic life and most of them are back in this area. its a real pity as there are no
communications, cell phones, schools and hospitals for more than 50 kms radius.
that is why every year, we visit this place and bring some goods.

the snorkel is diy and made of 3\" stainless steel pipe. The snorkel head is readily
available and generic head. Same with the roll cage, its basically diy. :)

Still lov\'n that exo-cage. If I didn\'t have to worry about gas mileage so much, I\'d have me an exo-cage.

With all the off-roading that you do, have you guys seen any excessive wear on your back door hinges. I use my trak on a daily basis and the weight of the tire pulling down on the door is bending the panel metal where the hinge mounts to the trak. I can show a pic if you don\'t understand my confusing post.

Thanks man!
