Its A JEEP THING .

If possible get a pair of good NDMS tyres and keep it, I believe you still have the 16" rims, that came in with the vehicle.

So in case you get bored of the retro look that is present now.. just change the tyres and whola !!! you have a classic .

Happy Jeeping..

Thanks Twinn.

I have the original rims and the old NDMS tyres that the jeep originally had. Much to the ire of my jeeper friends here in Hyd, I somehow don't like how the jeep looked with them and prefer the current Gypsy rims and Geolandars that are on now.

Have learnt that the old adage 'to each his own' really has meaning on TBHP

I see you're based in Coorg. There is some of that in my lineage. Must account for my love of pandicurry and the jeep

Wow Great, BTW I too like your retro look as of now and it give a good stance as well. Good to drive also.

In case if you are planning to drive in an OTR, I'd prefer you changed the shoes.

Any linage still present in Coorg, do drive down with your topless beauty will be happy to catch up and host a sumptuous pandhicurry feast

What make seats have you fitted in the front?
Did you need to modify the wheel wells?

The front seats are from a Maruti 800 and no modification at all for the wheel wells
