How much a new chassis costs? I read in a thread that Bolero Storm's chassis costs around 40K.

So... say If someone owning a MM5540/550 can simply order a Army NGCS Chassis (Will they be available on order?) which will be a bolt on mount pt wise? Many people here will benefit from it if it sells under 30-40K?

if 550 ngcs chassis is not available then simply order bolero chassis (one with front leaf spring set up or 4x4 one).

I doubt if this ^^ will be possible, you may contact Alf Engineering or KLT, Palghar regarding the same.
