Jeep looks good, like the wheels, but don't you need to put those bars at the back, (I don't know that they are called) for safety, if the jeep ever rolls over.

In my 3B which has the twin lever transfer case it is not possible to engage the low ratio without engaging the 4WD mode!!!
So I don't know whether its possible to engage the same in your jeep???

Hi Wicked Wheels !!

Congratulations for the magnificent build and the new addition. The Jeep sure does look `Wicked'. I personally liked the look of the gypsy modded wheels. Will be keeping a close watch on the 550 thread. Please do send me a link if you have already started it.

regards

From what I you have written I can make out that building/ restoring Jeeps is quite addictive !! I am also hardly done with my Willys but I am already itching for another project to start. I will be following the 550 thread. Do keep me updated on your other Jeep and the future project you have mentioned here.

regards

Default Nice Tires

Wicked wheels, I like the snorkel and the bikini top on your black jeep. All in all this is an excellent build.
Strangely I have a snorkle that im working on that looks the same. came of a cielo at a screap yard. I guess the funnel shape of the front end makes it the best candidate for a snorkle tube.
I must say them tyres look really mean. How much did they cost you and where do you buy them.

Hi 4x4Roadie, thanks man. Yes the snorkle is a cielo one slightly modded. The tires are Maxiss mudzillas 31x10.5-15 i have a dealer who imports them.

Hi Whicked wheel,
I have mostly refered your thread for making of my MM540, its now in the finishing stage of the Mechanical work, was trying out with various combinations of tyres to suit the look.
Initially i also tried with Maxix Mudzilla off road tyres but the same was not readily available, later checked with 235 75R15 - Scorpio tyre but the front wheels were getting in contact with the suspension(leaf spring). The supplier suggested me to go with 215 / 205 ( Bolero make) else with Gypsy tyres F78 x 15.
As the Fitness certificate is due for renewal, i need to understand what modifications were made on your MM540 before going with Maxis Mudzilla.
Please acknowledge & respond.

May I know in what applications will the 4x2 Low mode will help you? As far as theory is concerned you will need 4x2 Low ratio gear only when your payload is above the max limit (say more than 500kg) or tow load of may be a ton, and you have miles of tarmac ahead of you before your reach your destination.
