Going offroad with the Suzuki SJ410

This is my first time participating in a 4x4 event as Kinabalu Four Wheel Drive Club (KFWDC) organized the Jamboree 4x4 to Ulu Membakut, Papar. After having my SJ410 ready for basic offroad setting, I tried the car to the Crocker Range Sub Station, Ulu-Membakut. The car is very basic for offroad, with only A/T rear tyres. However, it was a very fun offroad when the tyres spinning on wet and mud road. I really need to drive carefully with the unsuitable tyres.  Photography wise, it was another opportunity for 4x4 photography and I only equipped with trusted Olympus E-1, 14-42mm and 70-300mm.

Old skool technique to add some grip and approach to avoid mud. Not effective but slightly help to remove the mud when the tyres spin. Use better tyres next time.. Olympus E-1 + 14-42mm
