Hi yogesh,
You people had good fun man..braving hot sun needs lots of guts and you all have them!!

p.s- The decend was a little unsafe in the second video. Seems the gentlemen has used clutch and brake combination :-))

Cheers

@Vinod: Theres no doubt the sun was hot and temp at least 35 degree C after 11 AM but somehow we never felt that. May be the thrill factor or may be due to our freezing chiller boxs with cool beverages.

Yes the descend was risky, see in next videos other two did it nicely.

@ Fazal: I only have that much pics from that OTR but here are few more videos of that jeep and others.

looks like you guys have lots of fun on OTR's. I loved the red Zeep. How much does it cost to own such a zeep and whats the reliability quotient ( i mean the engine , mileage , maintenance etc )

Please suggest

@Garvit2002: Yes this is the same. You from Jaipur??

@harish: To begin with you need around 1.5 lakhs and then its a never ending story: Jeep=just empty every pocket.

Hi Ym-enjn,
Can you please describe what set of tyres are there on front wheels of your jeep. Can the same set of alloys/tyres in a gypsy?

@Amar82: In front there are Marshal Venture M/T and rims are Meshiindo 10jj, these are not available in Indian market.. If you want to go in for Mud Terrain tyres you can try with Mudzillas, Bighorns or Trapadore from Mexxis, BF goodrich AT are also good ones. I do not have any idea about Gypsys height. Post into tyre thread to get better feedback.

@Vinod: Thanks..
