If 60 litres please change it to smaller 40 litres tank. It will not hit. Plus recamber of springs will help you elevate the vehicle. It will not touch. In extreme case please relocate fuel tank under co-driver seat like good old jeep. No problem of hitting any where what so ever.

@Shibu- Thanks for initiating this thread. Looking forward to see you in full force
@Sreejesh- DOnt worry about not having a 4wd vehicle. You can join in my vehicle.
@foby- Please come, i will try to accomodate you in any one of our vehicle. But you may have to be a co passenger. May not be able to drive. Come just to have fun!!
Yep I will be able to join you people there no issues in being as a co - driver

Hi Shibu,

I hail from Wayanad(Bathery), but I came to know about MGE a bit late. I just called Pratheesh and it seems that he will not be there. I too have a very tight schedule this Saturday, but then, I would love to meet up with you guys and fellow bhp'ns. I will try to free up myself and let you know in a day or so, I do have your number.

Aliyo,

Being online getting all the news ..! lol. Then did you make a deal, sold the Cj500. If not let me plan to join you, if you have plans to go for MGE. Did you already register. I had it in mind to call you last week while I was at Calicut, was fully immersed in sis's function.
