Default Introducing, The LYNX.

Dear friends,

Last night got the Jeep completed in all departments except the fan shroud and the rear seat. It has been a very hectic month trying to get it ready for AKC and EXAMM.

As you all know it has a 2.5L XD3P under the hood, front and rear 51" diffs of army 550, front discs, rear LSD and a KMT90 GB. Trepedors, 235/75/R15 temporarily, on Gypsy rims.

It is a powerhouse!

Special and thanks credits to Arka for the advice on the mechanical configuration.


Special thanks to the below mentioned for making this CJ 340 Hybrid, a reality.

Mechanicals by Taj.
Suspension by Janniah Sahab.
New body fabricated by Sharfu Sahab.
Roll cage, Spare bracket and snorkel by Raji Reddy.
Colour, (two tone,matte finish) by Prabhu, New Mars.
Soft top by Aqeel.

Off to Lonavala tomorrow and hope to have a great time there.
Regards,

The light guards/ brackets on the fenders were designed by me. Lights/ indicators from JCB.

Let me be the first one to congratulate you Fazal !! The jeep looks very good and I love the attention to detail. Love that soft top - very unique. But why didn't you retain the original alloys...they look great !?

Amazing jeep Fazal sir, you not only have a taste for detail but taste for uniqueness, this hybrid is sure inspiration to other jeepers. I love the spare wheel arrangement, lamps on the fenders and interiors, they must be luxurious, have a great time sir.

Nothing embodies Just-In-Time philosophy better for me today than you being able to finish your Jeep and go off to Lonavala! Awesome build and looking forward to seeing it soon.

Looking forward to meeting you Fazal bhai.

Cheers,
Aditya

Hi Fazal,

JEEP Looks nice, I prefer the Original Style Top (Bow or Scissor), gives more character.

Please check the Snorkel Plumbing, the Air Filter Inlet and the Snorkel Pipes does not look like they have been clamped, this will render the snorkel useless.

Regards,

Arka

PS - The Air-Filter Outlet does not have a Clamp either!!!!! Please check and rectify.

Congrats Fazal sir on yet another amazing build. Looks like its been built just for THE purpose. A very ingenious idea of the JCB foglights and I do see a pair of Hella micro DE's too. I've got a pair of them too in my Jeep (fitted under the bumper) and they are just great. Wish you lots of good and fun times on your upcoming adventures in the LYNX.

Super stuff Fazal!. Only seats are looking too plush for a car like this.

Must do it. Your Jeep is not complete without that sticker.
I'm sending you the files right now. Just finished drawing. Your vinyl sticker guy should be able to operate clean from here.

Let me know.

Fantastic looking Jeep! Congrats sir. Btw one silly question, where is the ORVM/wing mirrors?I dont see them and the IRVM with the soft screen down, they dont serve their purpose completely right?

how is the snorkel secured along the windshield and along its vertical length? Its a softtop version, so the winshield could be pivoted, doesnt the snorkel an obstacle if you wish to put your windshield down?

On the whole good drive, congrats again sir.

one of the best restored hybrid 340.

BTW which lights are on the front bumper?
are those powerful as normal halogens?

i like the JCB lights.
which software do you use for the illustration?

rgds,
Nikhil

edit: why the LHD wiper?

Superb looking jeep - congratulations, sir.

One small doubt - the seat appears to be clad in a fabric like material - will it be a problem if it gets wet\muddy during the OTRs?

PS: The logo is super cool - It should go on the Jeep.

Congrats Fazal Saab!

The Lynx is looking nice and look forward to seeing it in person after the AKC/EXAMM!

Cheers!

P.S: Knowing the AKC/EXAMM Trail, I would suggest a plastic cover over the seats for the fear of spoiling them permanently.

Congrats! Good job. To be frank, the Jeep still has to reach the perfection levels that we associate with Fazal Saab, may be because you were rushing to get things done before time. I see some cleverly done stuffs (e.g. Combination switch cover). Do you have plans for FFRA conversion too? Without radiator shroud you can observe how coolant temperature changes.

Agree to what Arka said, the clean side hose is fixed with a tie clip. Absolute NO NO!

Please check proper functioning of all parts / brakes / fluids before departing from Hyderabad

Hope the Jeep performs well in AKC / EXAMM, looking forward to see this monster in Hyderabad soon.
