The jeep has come out clean.
I presume those tiny little horns are kept there only for the registration formalities.
Where are you getting it registered? Asking because, I had a tough time to get the FC done on my Bullet which was painted in a similar shade as your jeep. This was with the Wayanad RTO.

Yes Those horns are for the registration only Removed from My wife's Zen. Wayanad RTO is a Jeeper He knows about vehicles very well. Few weeks back He caught my friend's Jeep and told him to repaint it !. I am taking it to coimbathur for registration. If I get it registered in this color the RC will say Green So I can change to some more darker shade.

Beautiful looking Jeep there, like the no frill attitude it shows. Perhaps a bullbar would be a great addition. Hopefully it has passed through RTO smoothly Can you please let us know about how much vitamin M was needed for the rebuild ? I am also exploring the option like yours.

Twins look amazing like two well built commandos standing guard. I always liked MM550 to 540 thought they look similar but they are different. I was made to understand that the SAND GRIP or NDMS tires will last for 20,000 kms and then go bald is that true because they are meant purely for off road than the normal tarmac.

Custom made D-Ring Mount I think this will work.

Just think about the weld area vs load in your arrangement

I would suggest at least 3/4th inch thick plates welded together

the weld area must be sufficient to sustain recovery/towing load/shocks .

Sreejesh, please DO NOT do such hanky panky things. If you want a tow hook at the rear get it welded to the chassis. Does your 550 have a tow hook on the LHS or just the Pintle hook?
