Please PM me Sir - as to what do I need to do to get the AC to be ECU controlled- or you can post it here - there may be many who might find the information useful. Having spent so much money on the AC - I would like to have it ECU controlled.

Dear Carrot Eater - this is very straightforward, I need not PM you. There is a BOM (Bill of Material) which lists all the part numbers, outgoing from non-AC Thar BOM and incoming from AC Thar BOM. What needs to be done is to generate an "add-delete" list for field application, which needs to be implemented in your vehicle. I know that there is software flashing involved, but it can still happen.

Best of luck!

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

How about using Wrangler JK parts on the Thar ?? im looking at bonnet, flares and front facia ? are these mods easy to bolt on without disturbing much of the original frame ? which one would be a better option. JK or the TJ in terms of simplified installation ?

hi guys,

I have fitted south african roll over bar to my THAR CRDe yesterday. Took @ 6hrs to fit. Brought all bolts,nuts & id washers from TVS. Thanks to Mr Behram for all guidance & ASC team for fitting. Its a painfull long process of fitting. But worth it.Looks masculine now.

Now no rear seats, planning to sell my OE seats and going to fix a front facing reclinable 2 seater from koyas or Rogotech coimbatore matching front seat upholstery. Photos to be uploaded soon.

hi,

Go to any asc with BD sirs SOP in this thread , i got it done at ASC of IG Laggere.Standing there my self after office for 6 hours. Yes its a painfull process. Bolts welded on the shell holes are not aligned, so it wont pass thru easily in many cases, u need to grind it.inserting ID washers to join 4 bolts was not a joke, then pulling and alligning the same at all fixed post,tightening the heads in tight corner point was another tricky and time consuming job.

reg procurement part i dont prefer to discuss here, it took me 4 months.

Friends,

Im in the process of upgrading the THAR CRDe brakes as per Mr BD sop. Placing the parts order today and also identified a right ASC to do the same, the works manager there was a helper in late 90s and graduated to
Sr cadre in due course thru different M&M ASCs.He has mechanical passion in his heart to do a sincere job with pin point perfection.Feels safe in his hands & Mr BD SOP, at hi speeds.

Rajith.

Looking forward to your brake upgrade. Please post a detailed account of all the parts changed in the process. Also points which need to be specially taken care of during the changeover would be a bonus.

Thumbs up Re: Updated Mahindra Thar in 2-3 months. EDIT : Launched with Air-Con and immobilizer

Ranjit saab,
It would again be a sincere request to you, if you could start a separate thread in the technical section highlighting the brake upgrade. It would be extremely helpful for newbies like to have all the data in one thread for reference. Bopanna has already started the ball rolling by neatly putting Mr. BD's info in an xls. sheet.

That is a huge amount and when you include labour, I guess it will be closer to 70k.

What are you planning to do with the original parts? Will that fetch you any money? Anyway keenly following your progress. Please also put up the pictures of the roll bar and the associated cost.

Dear Rajith and all - all said and done, at this spare parts material cost + labour + logistics of ensuring that the correct part lands up at the correct dealership + dealership variability, the whole exercise does not seem worth it, although it is an individual's call on an individual's vehicle. However, as brakes is one of the critical systems of the vehicle and as a better alternative is readily available with proven performance and reliability, if done in production, the differential cost would be substantially low, so all of you must push the company to get this system introduced in production.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Wise decision Rajith. . Anyway this would be an added reason for people to give way to any Thar on the highways.
I think many Thar owners have complained about the poor brakes. So I guess it is time, Mahindra addressed this issue. I hope Vinod is reading this.
