FInally 'the Jeep' is here. Honestly i haven't seen such a monsterous yet soothing jeep in person so far. Easily can be termed as a 'Q' class Jeep. May be some better angle will give idea about the height of the jeep! I am sure 'Tomahawk' sir will be pleased after seeing this in reality

That looks like a really conservative description.

What v6 engine have you found? In a conversation with Rahul, I tried talking him into a bigger diesel but the Oil Sheikh is very sure about a Petrol!

Jeep looks great Renegade. Its going to make a good partner for "Free Spirit"

lol...the very reason of picking up a rare model like 440 is to enjoy the benefits of a petrol jeep (barring the running cost). And tell you what renegade is very particular about that. Otherwise picking up a 540 or 550 etc etc would have been much more easier.

The specs of that engine are quite something! Wiki puts it at 183 bhp and 298 Nm torque. That's, well, a lot of power! How do you plan to take care of the handling and braking aspect post this engine mod?

Will easily become the most powerful Jeep(bhp-wise) in India I guess. Look forward to more in-progress pics.

Cheers,
Adi

Lovely Jeep, very tastefully done up. Congratulations.

Question : Your original thread title was "Jeep 4x4". What transfer case are you using? Any issues with the bell housing, or did jugaad come into the picture? How was the experience mating the 5 speed <-> transfer case?

Fantastic work.

The Jeep looks very nice. I like the front bumper design and the wheel/tyre combination. The chequer plate wrap-arounds also look nice.

Though I might add that the tailgate gives an impression that it still needs some thought, and the roll bar appears tad too tall.

Overall an excellent Jeep. My compliments for a job well done.

Cheers

Excellent balanced stance! Looks mean but very pleasing to look at also. The minimalistic approach is really well executed. Do share more pics and details of the transmission etc

Congratz on a great build.

thanks for appreciating the jeep,it is still not complete,the rear swing-away tire rack was removed before taking the pictures,which carries a tire ,hi-lift jack,two Jerry cans,every thing is thought of as the whole jeep with its assembly was designed first on a 3d software before any fabrication was started,roll cage is not the actual one as the new one is supposed to go in as this was temporary one to get the jeep back to Delhi from my factory,roll bar(stinger bumper) is fabricated keeping in mind the lift kit which is going in and for the purpose it is built,the dimensions were calculated before fabricating the actual one on incline/decline,given the tire size which would upgraded further to 35inch atleast.In this particular jeep,if we decreased the length of the stinger,it wont be of much use,it is perfect for rock crawling for this particular jeep.

Thanks GTO, i'm using Isuzu gearbox which came with Isuzu transfer-case out of a trooper,so no "jugaad",the engine and gearbox is a direct fit,only engine mounts and gearbox mount needs to be fabricated,i got almost everything in my factory so don't need to look for a workshop to carry the build,though in Delhi now,so getting the SPOA with custom leaf springs with twin shocks setup on each side from Mr.Raj Kapoor.

Well,i got a set of hilux differentials and steering unit as well which came with the engine and gearbox combo,I am not going to use all of that power all the time,though strengthening of chassis would be done,working on some cad designs with stress analysis to fabricate a final design later for the upgrade.I'm not in the race to produce a better jeep than others,this is something i had in mind which i wanted to do so i am building one.

Soumen. What Tomahawk Sir. Please dont sir me. I will love whatever Mandeep creates. He is one of the few persons who creates with lots of passion. He is a M.F Hussian of Jeeps.

Beautiful, just love the look!
About that 5vz-fe quad cam engine (I suppose it's a Toyota). Did you get that from Delhi or from some other state?
Same question as GTO follows too.. How simple or complicated was the process for mating that 5 speed box and transfer case?

Thanks for liking the jeep,yes,you are absolutely right,the 5vz-fe is a yota engine with R-151 yota gearbox/transfer combo.I had it imported sometime back from Malaysia with some other parts as well.As far as the current engine/transmission combo goes(isuzu),it is not at all hard to install one,as the gearbox/transfer case is a direct bolt on for the Isuzu 4ZB1 petrol 1.8 engine.Only the mounting part and engine alignment are some areas to look at carefully.
