Friends,

I'm planning to do the below single cab concept on my jeep as the next upgradation. Please share your views or pics. May trade off the shell to a soft top shell if I get the right price, anyhow I have to cut the current Hard-top and a frame to Mahindra pick up.

Dear Rajith - ! You are crazier than me. At least I got "somebody else" to pay for the whole thing. The photograph also looks the same, I saw the 2009 photograph just now before typing! Hahaha!

After long hauls between interstate garages and friendly hands Monk is finally back to its space.

Upgraded the differential ratio to a unique 4.55 from 4.27.
Replaced MM540 dash board to Boleros.
Instrument cluster from Bolero DI Turbo.
Added Oil Pressure & Voltage metre in the centre console,RPM metre from Taiwan on RHS of the dash board.
Retained old chilling Super king cooling system.
Replaced the OE Hitachi alternator with Lucas 90Amps on Isuzu motor.
Inserted Custom made 6 lines - 300 tubes Copper core Radiator.
Upgraded break booster with THAR CRDe system.
New Delphi AC condenser.
Successfully altered RCBT - RANE power steering system on THAR CRDe chassis and bolero dash board without welding the intermediate shafts to compensate the extra length.

All works fine. Crazy expenses.

Picture follows.

This clearly indicates that repeat customers exist in this market segment.

Sir,
Your right. Repeat customers do exist in this market segment.
I miss your appreciation for earning 3rd Thar but i can see your smiling face and sparkling eyes back of my mind.
Thanks,
Rajith.
