Sir,

The power steering setup, what brand is this?

I have a quick question on the effectiveness of a custom power steering setup on MM540 or in the case of the Lynx here.

How does the power steering behave in the following cases ;
a) at higher speeds where you prefer to have a stiffer steering setup/feel
b) while offroad from moderate to extreme scenario

Any chances of a failure in the setup and what would be the scenario in such a case, lets say if we are at around 50km speed ?

One too many questions , I guess , I hope I am not crowding your Lynx thread with too many queries. It's just that like Khan sir's Spidey, your brown MM540 was a jeep that I had followed initially to build my current MM540 although I never knew you then. But I guess , I am twice lucky, seeing Khan sir in his Spidey and now you with your MM540
Vivek,

Extremely sorry for the delay in replying, missed your post.

The steering is extremely dependable on and off road, the set up has been extensively tested here before leaving for the Bangalore OTR and did effortlessly well there too.

On road in the city it is very responsive and the easy maneuvering is most valuable. On highways at, and above 80kmph it is firm yet sensitive on turns, after using manual you need to get used to this and give minimum input.

I have done moderate to near extreme off roading without a single minor hiccup.

Regarding the failure, the hydraulic pipes are the weak point. For the return line I have used Tata Indica and for the main line, from the original Bolero pump to the steering GB a JCB high pressure line was used. If the hydrulics fail then the steering becomes hard like what it is before the engine is started.

The steering GB belonged to a Mercedes mini van.

Whenever you deviate from the OEM set up the dependability factor comes in.
Regards,

Fazal sir, Ive always been a hugh fan of your Jeeps, especially the Lynx. New vids and pics only make me feel that much better...keep bringing them on.

BTW, why dont you get a proper vid and photo shoot done through a steady hand professional guy focussing on little details/ uniqueness as subtitles. Im sure you will gain an international audience acknowledging and appreciating your effort.

Now that's a beauty of a Jeep, Great stance, great proportions backed up with Jeep capabilities to boot.


To nitpick I would loose the JCB lights but I'm sure they serve a functional purpose.
Drive on,
Shibu

I saw your Lynx at Suncity yesterday evening. Some mechanic was working on it. I was in a rush and hence unable to stop and say hi.

She sure looks super awesome.

My wife was kinda confused why I was so excited. More importantly how I could recognize it in just a glance.

That is how beautiful the Lynx is.

Thanks Srikanth,

Yes it is on of the very best, shot by Vijay from Bangalore (forum id vj_k2001) who is a very good nature and wildlife photographer. Also he did the preceding ones, getting out of the pit, water fording etc.
Regards,

Tasteful combination, Brubecks Take Five and your Lynx

And I love the way the orange JCB lamp flashes with that slow fade.
