A very tastefully done Jeep. However, I am not a fan of that hi-lift jack placement. It needs an immensely strong person to place or remove the jack from that position, or have to use two people to handle it.

Most of our JEEPS have the Hi lift mounted this way.

Just one question: why are the lower leaf springs wrapped in protective cover- any particular reason? Does that provide any advantage? or is it just that it yet to be removed?

salil
Jaggu and shubendra have mentioned the reason.

Is there some sort of cover on the leaf springs, what is the benefit ?

Please put up some pictures of the dash board.

Not only the jack itself, even to open the bonnet either the whole unit needs to be lifted, which is quite impossible, else spend the extra 10 mins to unload/load the HLJ in/out of place.

But, sandeep, I would like to see the under-hood pics, especially how the HLJ's re-inforcement place is designed. Should be super strong I guess...

Another very tasty jeep, keep them coming.

The right rear view mirror is at an odd angle, is it for the snorkel. Could it not be re-engineered so that it could be functional ?

Amazing workmanship and attention to detail. The hyderabadi craftsmen are truly blessed with their skills.
But then, it would be heart-wrenching to see these beauties sweating it out on OTRs, especially the Cj5 and the other vintages.

Great thread and awesome pics of the neatly maintained beasts! Hope the owners don't mind if we have some of these snaps as Desktop backgrounds!? Will keep watching this space as that's the only way I can have a Jeep for now and keep me tied down lolz!

BTW, learnt something new today about the concept of covering the leafsprings. Thanks for the information!

Santosh you can open the bonnet without removing the Jack . The jack is totally on the bonnet and there is no load on the dash. Removing the Hi lift is easy , its hardly 25 kgs. Bonnet is strenghtened from the inside.

This is one of the best CJ5 in HYderabad and the first time anyone has put up its pic online . Jeeps are expensive , super reliable , got awesome looks and perform top class .

Excellent looking Jeeps. Am taking styling tips from all the Jeeps that appear here and elsewhere for my MM

How will these keep muck away? Once the Jeep enters slush, Slush will enter through the openings and in fact will remain there. I would think a more effective and cheaper way would be to put cling wrap around the springs. Will definately keep the muck away and its so cost effective, no washing etc. just remove, throw, spray the leafs with water to wash the muck, lubricate, wrap again and away we go. Of course i may be completely wrong here.

Fazalbhai, apart from looking neat, how do they help in offroading? Im really not aware and would like to know if im missing any technicalities here so need to know whether i should or should not get this done for my Jeeps.

@ 9L, looks like the THAR is being given a run for the money and beaten

Thanks Sandeep, for the pictures

EDIT: Also, can you list what performance items you've sourced for 2.5L from the USA? Maybe you could share the link with us?

EDIT2: The canvas cover on the leaf springs - how does it protect from dust, sand, water etc when the ends are exposed?
