What is it you have on your Thar ? Have you installed a diesel enginer intercooler ? Is it still a Mahindra CRDe engine in there ? And the dashboar of a Thar DI ?

Oh I read the whoe thread - Monk is not a Thar.

Why would an off roader install a Thars side boards ? Its not required use some kind of tubular side steps often called rock sliders in India.

Dash board is from its own -MM540s.

Your monk is certainly a head turner now. Liked the side profile of your car with those monstrous looking tyres.

Now, from a local monastery to the shaolin temple, the monk now looks angry and all, reminds me of 80s chinese movies now dubbed in english. Master master, Lee Chan Ying has challenged you to a fight near the kun yon river, aahhhrrrr ho...looks like he is asking for it now, go tell him to come rightaway!!!

Jokes apart, have you experienced any sump scraping during otrs??

BTW, congratulations on your second thar, you just make at all look so simple.
