Prateesh,

If you are referring to the stitched (2nd) pic. at AKC,the Lynx was taken up the incline in 2L from the point it is in the first position in the same pic.

Allow me to elaborate here, This definitely was one of the toughest of AKC, more than half the Jeeps had to be winched up by Mahindra recovery, as the event progressed the Jeeps that went up dug in due to wheel spin and shifting the water from the puddle at the start of the incline, to the top.

I was the last to do it, busy chatting up with BHPians all the while and watching others do it. Suddenly it was announced this obstacle has been shut down as the last 3 Jeeps/ Gypsies that attempted had to be winched due to the slush build up was about a feet deep by now.

I ran over to my Jeep got it to the start point and requested Prasad, spotting at the starting point who shouted to Gogi at the end point ( top) that I want to do it. I was allowed luckily.

Without any extra wheel spin zig zagged my way up effortlessly.

The one below mentioned was the best of AKC and EXAMM for me.

There was one particular ' B' obstacle that had to be cancelled as Jeeps were traveling sideways more than forward here. To reach obstacle 'B' one had already come down obstacle 'A' a steep short incline. Both these obstacles did not have a bypass route, due to continuous rain the previous night the top soil turned into the grease like lubricant, though only about two inch deep.

All those were stranded between these two obstacles had to get back through obstacle 'A' which was not designed to take Jeeps back up, another alternate route was opened by the Marshall,s who were great in the nearly three hour rescuse mission aided with two Mahindra rescue teams. Allan, Imran, Devang and others were manning this operation.

I was the second to attempt it after a Thar before me was double winched up by two Jeeps and this operation lasted 35 minutes. Waiting my turn I mentally ran through the route, speed, gear, steer that I should do, several times.

In my first attempt went just about 3 feet forward and realized why Jeeps were going one feet forward and 5 feet to their left. This was a left oriented slope with a drop of about ten feet. Did it in 2L successfully, with the right amount of high momentum, steering it gradually to the right to the top. I fondly remember this one.

Fazal bhai,the LYNX looks just awesome and unique. When i saw it in the body shop i was wondering how it would come out. Prabhu s paint job is amazing , international quality ,it really complements the Jeep .
I still remember sitting on you seats, very very comfortable.

Practical ,purposeful and great looking machine .
Are you planning for alloy wheels?

Regards
Sandeep.

Thanks Sandeep,

From the beginning I had an idea what it would turn out to be in the looks department, but it has very pleasantly surprised me on the performance front as well (Arka's configuration).

Its a dream machine...off roads. Handles extremely well, power to weight ratio shows off, LSD is awesome, XD3P under the hood effortlessly delivers the low end torque and the 4.88 ratio has been maintained since this is my only and primary off roading machine.

I personally don't like alloys on Jeeps, pretty soon will have the black rock wheels 'in chrome' replacing the present Gypsy ones.

Prabhu's job is just amazing!!!


You are welcome to drive it when we meet on off road terrain.
Regards,

Love it, Love it, Love it.

Just out of curiosity, what cruising speed can you maintain on the highway without stressing the engine although it may not be a major consideration for the build?

Once again, a real keeper.

Fazal Sir rims are definitely solid, now I feel the tyres have got a better mate performance and look wise, don't take me wrong all this while you jeep was looking dull and more of performance oriented but now it looks stunner, head turner, thanks to you for adding looks to the mighty jeep.

Now that the width has increased how about fender flares of a commander jeep to avoid mud,slush splattering on the sides. How about some soft doors? Soft doors would give you protection from the splatter and apart from that it's winters, looks will add up no doubt about it.

I have also come across news about these type of rims for sale on 4x4 India (facebook community) and they were around 25k for the black powder coated and 30k for chromed ones.

Fazal,
Beautiful Build. Reminds me of the Icon CJ3B on which you have loosely modelled it - Yet it so distinctly has its own character. Speaks Tons of your attention to detail as a designer. Please take my BOW of honour. My offer of being your shagird still stands...
regards
salil

Bala,

Thanks.
From the beginning, these rims were supposed to go on the Jeep but for some reason their arrival in India was delayed, until then I had to use the Gypsy rims.

The finish of the Major,Commander fenders is very crude, the reason I added 1 1/2" to the fenders while getting them fabricated. Now the same tyre has ballooned on these rims and looks a different one altogether.
If I spend anymore on this Jeep than I have...guess I will be exiled from my own home.

Yes, those are the same rims also on FB, T BHP classified.

VLOCT,

Thank you so much.

I have done 100kmph very comfortably, but maintain 70-80kmph most of the time on highways, though it can do more but the aerodynamics of a Jeep are not meant for speed

Been to Srisailam with family last weekend in it, did about 2-3 kms of interior roads in the forest, that is Jeep territory.
