Okie Team i am back with the most awaited thread. after giving detailed report, pictures and some crazy videos of

Trust me guys this time its going to be wild with some real mean machines. Mumbai and Pune gang has added some real monsters in the gang.

the one on the ramp is a FJ Crusier with mhawk engine warn 24000 pound winch. this vehicle is mad.

The one in green is a 540 with customized paint job and treppdor wheels.

rest endy, h3 and range.. have fun and stick to this thread, lot more to come.

Pdev,
I love the green jeep, the paint job is A+. Can you post some more pics of the restored FJ. Was it imported??

Season ending / opening. For off roaders like us the season has never closed for the last Seventeen years be it hot / cold / rain or desert storm!

seasons greetings Pdev :-)
Let the pics roll in. The Fj looks smashing, must be one hell of an powerful beast! High end SUV's like range rover and H3 are welcome sight. Will be great to see them performing in this Jeep/Gypsy land. Green MM540 looks better now with a bikini top and small roll cage. What specs is this jeep running on ? What has been done to strengthen the steering assembly to carry suh heavy wheels? What is the diff ratio? 4.88 or 5.38?


Would welcome the engine bay pics of the Fj beast.

p.s- Dont u think the tyres of the Fj are a little over size considering the wheel arches especially rear is so small?

@desertfox.. i have used "Season" because monsoon is time when offroad is on peak for most of us.

@ Vinod, FJ is powerful its mad and you have noticed it right, tyers are little oversized.

No mods on Jeep apart from wheels and body line.

Range and H3 were good in dry. let see how good they are with rajmachi.

Best of luck for the season. I like the terrain, if i am that side will drop in.

What have they done with the FJ body. its definitely not the original body. Only the bonnet and fenders looks original.

seeing these pictures and even after personally examinig the fj i dont really think it really would perform well off road
muck and slush should not be a problem
but obstacles i dont really know
does not have any margin for articulation

bu really looking forward to this season pdev

except the FJ and the MM540, the rest of the 4x4s are not capable offroaders to match the performance of the FJ and 540!

you will have more damage to H3, Rangie and Ford is they are driven into Fj and 540 territory!

have fun guys and post those photos too!

I would love to see the FJ and 540 go into "FJ- 540 territory".
