Iiiieeeeyyooooo.. You are BANNED from any further OTR's for this blunder. You have been to enough OTR's and such kind of mistake is unacceptable.

Huge tyres & light body is a great combo to have sirjee.

Nothing will help here in this scenario -- if this is an open diff.

...Later found that ONLY khan's Gypsy was able to make thae huge rock climbing.
It was a DROP of 3-4 feet and NOT a climb sir .
The one in Rudra's picture. But yes, NO ONE else even tried it -- and wisely so, else it would have damaged jeeps/Gypsy's to unimaginable extent and also got royally stuck there.

Not all 4 were on the ground. The front left & rear right were in the air. I was able to do this part just because of the lockers. with an open diff this patch is literally impossible.

P.S Khan has your gearbox mounting issue been resolved?
No. I have the solution but not implemented yet. In the interim I have procured a DOZEN t-case mount beadings and I carry 3 of them with me all the time. So no worries for now here.

since everybody is accusing me of cutting wires in dwaraka's isuzuki (without knowing the real story), i would like to clarify some things to all of you, so that none of us feel blinded or biased . it wasnt me , but my incompetent helperboy iceman91 , he did not follow my instructions clearly , or may be there was some miscommunication between us. in any case a lot of wires got cut indiscriminately. i apologise to dwarak for the same .

Huge tyre was scrapping the body everytime the front wheel hits the rock. Add to that, the vehicle was jumping up after hitting the rock and the rear left wheel was on air.

And when he tries to push, the front right wheel and rear left wheel was spinning on air.

So, I thought if it had some weight it would have helped the vehicle to get some good traction.

It is a sad day for off-roading in India when a Gypsy owner indiscriminately cuts wires on another Gypsy.

The another Gypsy is no more a Gypsy. May be this could be the reason for the gypsy owner's intention behind cutting wires on another gypsy.. oops izuki/ipzy/isuzuki..
P.S: It was not just a simple wire, it was the most critical one which is used to power up the fuel pump.
