so other option is swapping chassis with new 4x4 one from dealer or getting it from second hand market.


in first option you need money & lots of it.
the chassis---------------------60k (second hand 10K)
FFRA (left off set one)+OKBJ)---70K (second hand ? )
T-18---------------------------20K (second hand ? )
misc. parts --------------------40K+ (second hand ? )
labor ---------------------------?
(all fig are approx)
& if you get the second hand parts the problem of legality arises (chassis no. on RC book).
also chassis can be miss aligned too.
axles tubes can be bended ones.
& at last reliability is no where compared to factory one.

my advice will be sell bolero & get 4x4 Thar mdi or second hand 4x4 bolero/armada/invader/marshal. (all are available in box section chassis aka NGCS)

rgds,
Nikhil

EDIT:
+1 to Tini.
parts are rare & good mechanic is amost impossible. (at least in my locality)
How feasible is it to convert a Bolero DI 2wd to 4wd.

Since Bolero DI comes with rigid leaf suspension in front and rear only, does this require any chassis modifications or just adding a T18 TC to the NGT520 GB sufficient?

  • front AXLE assembly
  • GB + T18 (or BW TC)
  • if you use T18 a right offset FFRA (diff towards drivers side)
  • other mics parts like prop shaft, FWH, TC gear lever.
rgds,
Nikhil

BTW these are just AFAIK list.

i have not done such conversion.

Hey nikil there is a marshal di 4x4 for sale the jeep is in good condition but he is asking 2.5 for it. As for booking a new bolero di turbo 4x4 it could be a long wait as there is no coordination between the company and the dealer just cancelled my booking as I was supposed to get the delivery in the end May when asked about it was told I will go into production in mid of June and the showroom did not even have a booking no for it from the company.
