Just coming back from the Jeep Thrills event. It was wonderfully organized and was fun to see all those beautiful jeeps vying for the top spot through that maze of totally whacked out road.

The line up consisted to MM540's, Kaisers, Land Rover, Wranglers, Pajero's and even a VW Tourage turned up.

The sun was hot, the participants were even hotter with superb focus,determination and grit to scale all that trecherous terrain.

In the entire lot, there was a cute Blue color jeet ( not sure if it was an MM540 or a wrangler stood out and a couple of other well maintained ones too).

VW Tourag showed its brute torque power and scaled most of the terrain with much ease. Great show there.

Will post up some pictures taken shortly. Kudos to the organizers, participants and ofcourse the spectators including a bunch of TBHPian's ( Me, Suren, MC, Ravs,Abysnthguzzler, Pulsar, Fazal, Devidas, Prabhu etc). It was great fun meeting you guys, as usual

I was there too. Took some photographs shall upload them sometime today. I think I spoted your read Viva it had 3 Team BHP stickers. I got to meet Shams. I didn't know he is a member here. He know me as a member of HPC(Hyderabad Photography Club) on Flickr.com. I thought I saw Rajshekhar but was not sure.

I was lucky that I got to click a Silver SLK and a Toyota Celica and a Yamaha Fazer it was parked out side.

Yup, that was my viva. If Raj was there, he would have been with us. So he was not there. Even i saw the celica parked outside. Strange, that you never meet up with us.

Sagar, what happened to you? You took off without meeting any of us? Came all the way alone on the bike just to take pictures?

Nai yaar, came with a few of my friends just to click pics. Am not at all into offroading and jeeps. I did meet Suren and Prabhu. They told me that your on your way. Trust me on this, I was so hit by the sun that all I kept on saying was "McD, ac, coke!" lol. While walking back towards the bike, I saw your car. And yeah, am bikeless lol, sold off my pulsar.

Just look at the incline in the second last pic posted by mobike!

Prabhu got a jeep from one of his friend's and we were off towards the OTR with great enthusiasm! Prabhu driving, me on the passenger seat with the mobile cam on, and our dear milcruncher hanging on to dear life at the back bench!

Unfortunately, the jeep we got, the 4L was not working properly and the engine did not have enough power to make it to the top of that incline! (But, yeah, my first time on such a terrain in a Jeep, I was actually scared that we might topple over! LOL)

It sure was a rocking event.

Fazal bhai, looking forward for some amazing pictures through those massive lenses you were carrying today!

Looks like a great event. I had no idea anything like this was done in HYD. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to have one of these events coincide with one of my trips there. I'm also wondering if any of my relatives were there with their Jeeps. And the pics of the FJ40's really make me wish my bro-in-law didn't sell his(in HYD). It was beautifully restored.
