Hi,
I just got back from Bangalore/Coorg on Monday after a rather hectic two weeks. Sorry, I couldn't get to meet any of you guys. Vinay, your message is just a day late!

What I did manage on my last day in town was to visit Ozone and meet Mr Narayan. Nice chappie and says he owns a '73 Land Rover that he's kitted out.

I checked out the winches, but decided against an electric Warn winch (costs about Rs 57,000 for the 8000lb winch), because mounting it on the 4wd Scorpio would be tough. Plus it would void the extended warranty and would involve a battery change and some bumper modifications and changes to my brush guard as well as welding etc.

I figured, since offroading is all the more fun when it involves some sweating it out, it would be better to get a hand winch.
So anyway, here's the list of kit I picked up at Ozone on Monday, and I'm waiting for it to reach Delhi by surface transport (as I already had way too much luggage to carry with me and hence could not take it on the plane).

1. A 48" Hi-Lift jack
2. A Hi-Lift off road kit (includes tree strap, shackle, brackets, chain and tensioner for winching, gloves and kit bag)
3. A Hi-Lift wheel mate (device that hooks into the wheel rims to lift from the side)
4. An American Power Pull 2-ton hand winch.

I paid about Rs 12K, including taxes for the first 3 items. Not quite convinced about the price I paid for the last one, so not mentioning it , as it was anyway a grey item.

I bought some other odds & ends as well, like a wind-up torch.
Eagerly waiting for the equipment to reach me now.

Cheers,

A very hot item. I found this in local gujli but those are the once with only two bolts, which is a direct fit. Vijay (star_aqua) bought it.

Thanks

Congrats rahuls. Why don't you start a separate thread o your Gypsy with it's pictures, specs, cost etc so that we can can all join in your moment of happiness.

And yes, I was in Mumbai last week and had met up with a lot of BHPians. You should have come there .

That's really bad Roshun. Beware the next time you are here. We have left your details at all airport's/hotels/stations. How dare you stay here for 2 weeks and not meet fellow BHPians ..

A Hi-Lift jack is priceless in OTR situations. Good that you bought one. Not too sure about the paraphernalia that comes as accessories with it though.

Yes. Steal them from Vaspro's jeep :-). Jokes apart, you would have to spend time roaming the bylanes of Gujri to get these.

In that case, you leave me with just one option - to drive down unnoticed, in a certain DL registered maroon-coloured 4wd Scorp, sporting Coorg Wildlife stickers... er did I give away too much?
The paraphernalia that comes with the off-road kit is useful in using the Hi-Lift as a winch, but just about 36" of travel at a time (from a 48" jack). Slow and tedious work, but definitely a lot of fun. I'll try it out one of these weekends and report.

Stuff you get there:
  • Nylon tow ropes of various sizes & load capacity
  • Other hardware items like D-Shackles & D-Rings etc. (depends on availability)
Khan bhai I am going to purchase Nylon tow ropes for my gypsy from above mentioned store.
few queries about ropes
1) how many meters you suggest
2) what is D-shackles & D-rings, is this require to connect both end of ropes.

Hi Shakir,
Check out the pic in the below link. Here is what you need. It is also called as Bow Shakle. For the tow rope length, I think 10mtrs would be enough!

I would say 6 Mts to be MORE than enough. My tow rope is 7 mts of steel rope.

Nice thread!

I'd like to add a great product which i've been using for a year now. LED flashlights for camping, off-roading etc. A brand called Fenix is now available in Bangalore. These lights are comparable to Surefire in build quality and are available in multiple configurations. I carry the E20 model in my jeep permanently and if I need extra lumens then the TK11 goes on my belt.

My maglite re-chargeable has been retired after the arrival of the Fenix lights. Compact and extremely powerful. The E20 can also be used as a lantern/flood light by unscrewing the head. The beam is also focussable on the E20.

The manufacturer website is www.fenixlight.com

The lights are available through,
