Fantastic Installation pictorial Shahnawaz, we were discussing your experiment in the post-Sakaleshpur-OTR meet. Everyone was quite puzzled about the normally on difflocks. Prithwiraj was planning to calling you.

Spoke to Prithvi today. He was mentioning about the fun you all had at the post OTR bash and the off-roading with your GV. So expect a report from you on that soon

Altaf, thanks buddy. As DKG said, you folks need to get this done and try it out in rajamchi.

On the costs part, as the advt from 'MasterCard' says, Lockers -- 21K+; feeling of driving a locker enabled Gyspy -- priceless

Shahnawaz 21k is actually great value considering most big daddy lockers cost around $1000

and I find these to be more comfortable than say the ARB (haven't used them though but saying this base don literature available).

Too bad that we don't get off the shelf mechanical performance mods/products for 4x4's in India.

Its just a matter of time. You just started something that could see many Gypsies being upgraded. Once the route, the price and the method of install is transparent many more will join the upgrade mode.

If across India a healthy demand picks up Lock Right will appoint a dealer and do it officially. You never know MUL themselves could offer it as an accessory eventually if quite a few people demand it on a Gypsy. Infact our military order could specify that for the Gypsy!

The market eventually drives supply.

Altaf what is your group's review of the Maxxis Mudzilla groove tyres? Do please let us know if they made a big difference. From the looks of it I'd think they would be great in slush. That one stretch in last year's video where almost everyone got stuck, should see if a Gypsy with these tyres can make it. Considering you guys are doing that terrain so often its a great trial ground to test upgrades

I agree and I am soo very happy that more people are wiling to upgrade their Gypsyies for better off-road capabilities now. It's more fun when all of us combined together are capable of handling more difficult terrains. After all, no fun on doing off-roading alone.

I know, AND that's just the price pof the locker. You WOULD also need to arrange for an air source/compressor/pump unit in your vehicle .

I had contacted them for the locker install and didn't hear back from them. Surprisingly they didn't even know what an 'automatic positive locking differential' is and how it works.

the Maxxis Mudzilla groove tyres are just excellent and doing great for offroading , on road you will have a bumpy ride, but offroad its just amazing no chance for you to get stuck

Dear Shahnawaz - I studied all your photographs in complete detail and now I know how it works and what all can happen to it. There are other possibilities. Let's see. I will be watching your Gypsy's performance.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar
