List of mods on the same below. 2002 Model.


7)Wrangler rear lamps.

Got full shell scraped and getting painted with Mat black on the top and Mat Glistening grey on the shell all from DUPONT.

Looking good Rajith.

Just one observation - you seem to be flush-fitting the Wrangler rear light like mine.
However, the cut-out for the light seems to be upside-down compared to mine, unless of course, your lights are a different model....the cut-out is of the same shape though!

Mine are of a 97 model Wrangler!

That's an awesome update Rajith - why not give the brother Monk too a thread of his own?

Thanks for the clarification Rajith.

BTW, your hard-top appears to be skillfully crafted, good job

How do you think a body lift will help your Thar ? Any particular reason for doing it ? Are you a frequent extreme offroader in India ?

Frequent.. not really, but I come down to India to do the occasional Monsoon bashes with a couple of friends. Nothing beats driving in the rains and in the Mud. Need to give the Gypsy boys raised eyebrows once in a while.

Besides I don't want to mess around with the IFS cos its brilliant as compared to my other rides.
Just need a tad bit more ground clearance to add bigger rubber and ofcourse ...stance.

Awesome build Ranjith (MONK II).. glued on to this thread, lemme know if you need any technical help on the isuzu engine bit, did an R&D for my gypsy (isuzu 1.8 mpfi), I have a feeling you will create a monster with this setup.

Rajith,

The new Monk specs are way more appealing than the Old Monk. I would've never have said that if referring to other things

How much did you pay for the following things?
1) Bolero front solid axle
2) Isuzu Trooper gearbox

Also, haven't heard from you in a while. When are you coming to Ahmedabad next?

Cheers,
Adi

Kudos Ranjith Ji,
Always good to see a Jeep being built not bought !

Are you aware of different configuration of Isuzu engine with 4x4 GB (you have enough experience on Isuzu now) asking so because Isuzu 4FG1 ( i hope i have spelt it correctly) + GB & TC is available in Mayapuri from 60-65 K.

Is this lockright for 19 splines?
All the best !
