And are those mirrors from the new Tempo Traveller. Can you post some more pics of the mirrors and how you have mounted them. I have been eyeing these for some time now.

Hi Santosh, I have already looked out for a set of Maxxis Trepedor 235/75 R15s to upgrade to, just postponing it for coming monsoon. These tires look puny against the now slightly increased size and I intend to do loads of monsoon off-roading, I guess pretty unimaginable on my current set.

Also do off-road tires cost increases in monsoon? just a curious and stupid question as I thought it must be a similar case to the inflation of sugar and Ghee prices pre-festive season.

Hi Raj, yes it is the patch of road that goes between Bangur nagar's last road and Hypercity's backroad. Couldn't find anything else that close. Also a request for you was to notify me for any upcoming OTRs as am dying for one.

About the mirrors yes those are the tempo traveller mirrors. Liked the size, looks and the range of adjustment you get but honestly not what I would call practical as they give only vertical view and not much of a horizontal range for our size of vehicle. Infact for the left side I need to work with my neck everytime just to make sure I get a proper and complete view backwards.

I got them from a Tempo spare seller at Opera house for 1450/- set, had to make a small bracket inside the door for the bolts.

Hello Sagar,
Since it's a few months that you've converted your jeep to 4wd, kindly update as of how the jeep is performing.

Regards,
Varun
