Default Short Dash close to Nandi Hills for Rock Climbing with Gurkha last OTR of 2010?

Hi,

Guys had been to the same Rock that could not be concurred in the previous trials as approach angle was too less & the U rods of stock bumper would not Budge to climb it.

Hence designed the new bumper, which I believe has improved the approach angel, if not drastically, it sure has become much better now.

This was the previous case :



Now with the new setup:



Do you guys Think it cleared it?

The Gang for Last OTR of 2010

We left home at 3:30, had takeaway coffee @ coffee-day on new airport road, rock climbing just after railway crossing en-route to Nandi & were back home by 6:30 pm

Me Sunil, My Wife Anu & our son Tejus had the pleasure of accompanying
King Uday, his Queen Chethana & Prince Kushal visiting us from UK.
CEO Vaidee & Founder Director Sree of Divum also joined us.

Cheers
Sunil

Sunil,

The new fender has improved the approach angle definitely, if you need more GC on approach, bigger wheels??

I feel you should have posted it in the 4X4 section for the right feedbacks.

Nice Gurkha.

Regards,

@ fazalaliadil

I guess I have put it up under 4x4 & Off-Roading > 4x4 Excursions!!
Yea Bigger Wheels (35") need the final drive ratio (diff ratio) changed from 4.9 to 5.3 or 5.7 working on that.

@ All I did 3 attempts:







Will It Make it?

Cheers
Sunil
