Awsome Vidoes, awsome snaps and you guys are having a ball. I see the 4x2 MM540 in good shape but why is it still in 2wd form? Come on add 4wd, u seem to be a off road buff!

Lovely terrain and plenty of action and lot to explore. True jeep/Gypsy territory.

Even I don't know how to edit videos :-(. I know NOT swearing won't work. .
I am just afraid to open the mumbai gang OTR videos at home/office with people around, You never know what swear words you guys would use next .

I suggest that against each link you put a caution/warning if the video has 4 letter words. I think devang did that in a few posts.

Cheers,

You could not be further from the truth. The gearbox is on its last legs, the floor has rust holes big enough for small people to fall through, there is tonnes of freeplay in everything, and the vehicle is held together not by nuts and bolts but by pieces of wire and string.

This vehicle has an Isuzu engine, so I cannot reinstall (yes, it has seen better times) 4x4

Congratulations for your splendind performace at Palar! Must have been a blast!

Alpha lovely driving. Both the MM540s look lovely in the videos. The video of your jeep getting pulled out was facinating. What was that whine in the video when you were being pulled out? Sounded like your jeep was weeping that it got stuck :-p

Awesome rubber, man! Turned that Gypsy into a monster. Great pictures too, including the staircase pose. What is the tyre brand & size? And which 4x4 is towing both of them up?

They are the Maxxis Mudzilla -- probably the 31x10.5 size

any special changes made to the suspension of the gypsy to accomodate the maxxis tyres?

can they be fitted to MM540/550?
