@ wicked wheels : I think it is time to update your bhp garage with some of these pics and tech specs(including the mods done) of your jeep.

Nice jeep you built there. Though the rear fenders are not to my taste but rest is superb. A question, what rims are those. Never seen those kind before. Some details please.

cheers

That is what I thought at first look . But I din't believe that some one will have the guts/skills to do this. I don't know how to put it without sounding offensive but I think it is stupid to do this and play with your safety. But everyone to himself I guess.

cheers

WichedWheels, I am impressed. At all Jeeping is all about experiments. Can you pls post some close up of the rim and the cost involved. Pls give us as much detailed as possible as I am thinking to have the similar task on the MM550's wheel. What differential ratio are you using??

Hi wicked wheels,
Your jeep has turned out very well. Those tyres are awsome. Now few questions-

1. What modifications have you done in steering set up to take the additional load of these wide tyres?

2. Is it power assisted?

3. What diff ratio are you running on to compensate the loss of power?

congrats on the completion of your jeep and getting it around for a test drive.

the black matt finish adds to the character look of the jeep.
the jeep looks best when viewed from front and 3 quarter.
the tyres give it the muscular look.
the rear of the jeep doesnt matches or doesnt go along with the rest of the jeep, its kind of bland for me.
the gypsy wheels, i hope have not lost their strength after doing those modifications on them.
now lets wait for the photos of your jeep after going topless!

the green monster looks cool!

Hi Desertking, the making of the wheels cost me around rs1000 a piece. The fabricator has done a good job, he fabricates air tanks for industrial purpose and has used the same technic for the rims.ill get u a photo of the wheel.The front and rear differential are of a Cj3 jeep as i wanted a bit more of traction on the wheels.this idea was given to me by a old timer mech. The top speed has come down but offroad she is good.
