jyobeb, once again gone through the whole thread. One doubt, are you using an A/C compressor for air?

Yes! Originally planned for air. I will add an inline oiler and moisture remover.

Guys what make is this truck? I especially like the way they have mounted wheels, tank and other equipment (probably a WW II radar unit) between the body and carrier. A Nissan 1 ton would look good if made this way.

This could be a Canadian Military Pattern (CMP Truck) built by Ford. The payload/drive/chassis code match according to http://www.canadianregister.co.uk/chassis_codes.html

@jyobeb: While I genuinely appreciate your spirit, skill and patience, I strongly condemn the mutilation of a restorable classic Jeep. I browsed through the thread, and noticed that the Jeep chassis had most of the components in place. I am sure that you have access to excellent panel beaters and and welders who could have recreated the Jeep body shell with the necessary tweaking to fit the Safari chassis by looking at the original. By doing so, you would have gained a freshly made body of your specifications, along with a new restoration project.

I don't want to offend you, and am very much interested in the final outcome. It is just that I feel the project could have been managed better. Perhaps you can source a Jeep wagon body for the bare Jeep chassis? I wish you luck for the successful completion of this endeavour. Keep us posted.

I admire your frankness and appreciate your concerns! However in the cas of this vehicle I decided not to be a purist and hence the result!

Well, if you have retained the Jeep chassis, components and RC book, you can restore it when time and resources permit. Bodies shouldn't be difficult to come by, it's the mechanical bits that are rare.

How far has the project progressed? And can you please explain the registration process of this vehicle? That is as interesting as the engineering part, if not more. PM me if the details "may disturb public order".

No worries about 'disturbing public order'
Someone said "Everything a man loves is either illegal, illicit, immoral or illegitimate"........
The thing about the west is, as long as your build stops within the regulated distance and is not polluting the downtown city pollution norms, it will be registered. Annual insurance costs can come close to some build costs....it doesn't matter what you ride or how old your ride is. Insurance is standard and it doesn't depreciate annually.

India is value for money !!!

Has anyone used a Gypsy transfer case in a Mahindra jeep with Dana 44 axles? Does the front PTO of the Gypsy transfer case match the front diff.

Except in Delhi, where 10 yr old vehicles are headed for the graveyard.
