Very good work with the Jeep, Whicked! Pat yourself on the back for all the hard work put in so far. It'll be very interesting to see this Jeep once done, it sure will have a tremendous presence.
One question, where in Pune did you manage to get those tow hooks,front and back? Also which tyre dealer deals with the Maxxis'?
I'm glued to this one, keep the pics coming... its a great inspiration!

Default Great Going...!

Hey Wicked Wheels!

Great Going so far!

I m also thinkin on the same lines. The vehicle should be one of a kind and recognizable from a distance.

Do shed some light on the drive train. What kind of hubs you are using etc.

I am glued too!!

Best of luck!

Dear Whicked wheels - with all due regard to the people carrying out the mechanical work on your vehicle, I may like to mention that doing work under such atrocious conditions with dust all over the place can affect bearings and quality of work. Suggest you move to a better housekept place.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Even I was going to suggest the same. Dont mind but from the pics it looks like a garbage dumping ground. The mechanics might be excellent with their work but as Mr. Behram suggested work enviorment does affect the performance.

Even I liked the idea of fenders, the pipes with sheet metal over it.

Hi payam you got it wrong its not my shop. Its the paint shop where the painting was done. I could not help it as i dont have my place any more it was rented. I wanted to do all the mechanicals in my parking but to my bad luck we just dug a bore well and there was a lot of muck around. I take a lot of care doing my work and try to keep the parts clean.

Hi Wicked Wheels,

Good work and looking forward to see more pics...

BTW A question from my side about the the tubular fender/Mud guard flares. Actually the strength of material used for Fender/mudguard flares should be less than the body metal. The basic idea behind this theory is to avoid any damage to body line incase of any accident or hit on the flares. Thats why its made by either Fiber or thin metal sheets than the body metal.

In my observation, since you welded the tubes on the body, even a small crash from side tool, surely will reflect on your jeep body too.

Any way looking forward on your work progress

tks/sali

Hi Salikt, THe tube fenders are very strong and they have given added strength to the body, but as you say in an accident you can never tell how it will hold up. Without a douth its going to bend the body depending on the impact.

Hi guys, just got the gearbox assembly fitted last night. I also changed my 4wd shifter setup from a two leaver to a one leaver set up found in a mm550.
