Dear all - yes, that's Sudhir Kashyap. We went "somewhere" sometime back. You can see the date in the photograph. And yes, the Scorpio climbed upto this point in 4WD low but we had to use the winch to come down as the angle was quite steep, not as much as seen in the photograph but still steep. It took us 30 minutes just to come down. You can see it being winched down. By the way, what do you see inside the rear door?

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

I certainly dont see rear seats in there. Vehicle is a little lowered as if there is something heavy behind, no, rear is not articulating. The question is what was being carried in scorpio rear??

Pic is not clear, since you have asked question...you can reveal the answer as well.

As mentioned above you can cut the old original or remove the old and fabricate a new heavy one that will be welded to the two chassis rails. A good welder will make a weld that will bear up under the load of the winch. You will have to deal with adding signal lights somewhere/somehow. Not a big problem. You could also add tow hooks to this.

The other option is to cut the top center portion of the old bumper and fit a plate across the two chassis rails.
, DD, we are awaitng your long awaited new invader 4wd review. Further, those OE tyres are pathetic! Even Major 4wd gets NDMS 600-16 wonder what makes Mahindra treat Invader 4wd like this!

from an initial look this installation is suspect as the bull bar seems to be holding the weight of the winch and the pressure when it is used. But, I suppose we can't be sure until we see how well the bull bar is attached to the frame.

Here are some pics which may help you out to fabricate your own bumper.

Wow, very clean install. What is it sitting on? Is that a Ramsey, why you went for 6000lbs?

Rallystar: Thats a neat fit and a nice winch too. I was looking at fitting at one on my Scorpio as well.
Where did you get it from and what was the total cost of the same? It would be great if you could share the breakup as well.

@Swastikviji: Can you please tell me if it is possible to get that "winch mounting" somewhere at Blore or recommend a good fabricator so that I need not cut the bumper to install it.

Now thats a very clean custom installation of the winch . The winch is popping out of the vehicle , is'nt a guard neccessary to protect it (i do not know just asking)

Exactly my thoughts. I think it would be wise not to lead with your winch. If I decide to put a winch on my Invader I will put some substantial steel in front of it so that my winch is not what makes first contact with an obstacle encountered from the front. I have also seen many vehicles leading with with their off-road lights. Lights and winches do not make good bumpers.
