Dhanush this is my Jeep, 60" Hi-lift in back attracts unwanted peoples attention from opposite traffic, lot of drivers turn back to see what is that thing projected from top, after two years use i chopped that Hi-lift to match Jeep Top Height,

Wow Sreejesh the Chocolate Jeep is awesome and loved the 2nd pic. One query though: How do you plan to fix the Hi-lift jack there? Will those rods bear the weight? I guess you can also consider placing it in front of the front windscreen as on many Hyderabad Jeeps.

Sreejesh, i think I saw your jeep on Thrissur - Angamali stretch on Thursday, 28th March.

Was it you driving it? Took a little time to realize that it might be you.

Small suggestion.

This can be added later & will provide you some space to mount some extra accessories .

Here the proposed addition bracket for your Jack carrier . It will also strengthen the existing bracket & ease the load on the top pipes of the hood .

Here ( Not to scale of course )

Experiment on Suspension Continues. Now articulates more than the stock NGCS with Custom Leaf springs and Shackle.

Making custom washers for new rear leaf springs.

MM550 XD NGCS - The War Horse-dsc_0043.jpg

New leaf springs

After suspension tuning , But not satisfied with front Springs.

MM550 XD NGCS - The War Horse-dsc_0107.jpg

does that difference in track width preventing the articulation of front Springs ?? I seriously doubt. So next is a Spacer.

Innova seats for more comfort and better seating position, visibility

Not yet. Wayanad OTR is coming so no time for experiments http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-ex...tr-2013-a.html (Wayanad Annual Monsoon OTR - 2013!).

Now going for a 43/8 (5.38:1) diff with LSD and a custom exhaust muffler.
