The jobs have been accumulating for some time now. From Jeep maintenance and repairs, to visas for on wards travel and just general shopping and gearing up, there is always plenty to do when I reach a capital city.

JPFreek Adventure Magazine sent over a replacement Joint for the front driveshaft, a Repezza High-Angle CV Joint from TeraFlex Suspensions. This joint is designed to fix my problem once and for all, so I won’t have to deal with it again!
I’m extremely happy to get to work replacing the joint and getting the driveshaft back on. I’m much happier with 4×4 !

I also take the time for oil changes, tire rotations, greasing everything and having a good look around after the flop. I’m thinking it’s more and more likely I have bent the front axle, though at this point there really isn’t anything I can do about it. I’ll keep an eye on the oil level in the front diff, and top it up if needed.

I wanted to push the dents out of the two passenger side doors – but it’s not happening and I gave up

With all the work done, the Jeep is ready to hit the road. I also got a visa for the next country, and got a ton of info about routes and roads ahead. Thanks JPFreek!

Now it’s time for the final push through North Africa!

    Hi! Great job on fixing the Jeep.
    How did you manage to get an Ethiopian visa in Kenya? I thought the Nairobi consulate only serviced Kenyan citizens or residents…
    Cheers!

      Hi Jules,

      They ask you to get a “letter of introduction” from your own embassy. With that, they’ll issue you a one month, single entry visa for $40USD. Tons of foreigners there doing it, everyone got approved.
