actually not buying a car yet i was researching :P maybe will wait till june for the fortuner to come and then decide(actually dad will cos hez payin ) mostly my needs are for long drives from blore to kerala since kerala has horrible roads i was looking into the details ..
no 4WD in the mHawk yet, only in the CRDe and getaway.
for off-roading, i feel gypsy and boleros are best. even the legend.

Guys,
Was that maroon bolero in the first pic a 4wd?? Heard that bolero 4wds are still offered with old look in SLX form.
How was the performance of bolero compared to long wheel bases in the group?

Also green kaiser long wheel base looked fantastic, what mechanicals is it running on??

sha that Bolero stuck in the muck takes the cake here buddy, an excellent shot. Only if the front right door was closed, it would have made for good brochure stuff. How about some more pics for the lesser mortals like us who only get to see such action here on t-bhp.

I can vouch for the capability of the Legend,...it is ROCK SOLID on any terrain !!
However the tyres need immidiate replacement with Sandgrips , Geolanders, or NDMS. The stock tyres will let you down miserably.

I would also change the bling bling alloys., to something more serious.

All jeeper had 4WD other than Bolero. without 4WD that terrain cannot be done.
@Vinod: your answer above. It was a 2WD.

No doubt that the picture looks great but I am sure most of other participants would have been cross with him for bringing a 2WD vehicle there.

Hey Riju, you should join us for an OTR one of these days with your camera. This way you can enjoy the action and also get to click as much as you want.

Sure dude, I will try me best to join you chaps in the next OTR. I would have loved to join you chaps for the Wayanad OTR, albeit am spending my vacation from the 26th of this month there with family and relatives.

So lets say next OTR in bangy I will be there.

OTR driving and photography together is difficult to do. my friend was amateur in DSLR but some how he got some good shots.

but the legend at 6 lakhs is damn expensive. for half of that money, you could buy a second hand MM540 and do all the modifications you mentioned and more!

hey sha,
The vehicle in the first pic looks interesting, is it a LWB kaiser? Also the front axle looks different. Is it a semifloating axle?
Also what mechanicals is it running on? Paint job is excellent..looks rugged!!:-))

The terrain is challenging and nice to see good offroading skills being applied there.

Yah thats a Kaisar CJ6 (LWB). Though some unusual extra accessories like fork, a nice looking jeep with good paint work. What kind of heart it carries and how about the performance
