This B/W is from the '71 war by paratroopers, and therefore has as many things removed to save weight.

This one is a Anti-tank platfrom. It different from the earlier ones used as mounts for the recoiless(RCL) gun, in which the rear side is cut shorter and paltforms for the gunner and loader made there, and the windscrren too in cut in the form of an unverted-U from the middle so the gun barrel can pass through while transporting. This one looks like its a mount for the Milan

Thats the one that kicked off my Jonga craze, dude.

Yah Dinar, i'am better now, started walking around a bit, but it would take a few more days to avoid using a walking stick.

Posting the good ones, ummm, well i only saved the good ones, and posting that many sounds like some sort of punishment. Still, gimme a very boring day and i'll try to post as many as possible, probably on photobucket or something.

Jonga became famous in India when late PM Rajiv Gandhi used it extensivly in his Rally campaigns and also to reach the rocky rural areas.
He would many times drive himself as he was an adventurous man just like his brother Sanjay Gandhi.
doordarshan used to flash many clippings of the Jonga.

And also since it was extensively used by Army and Air-force teams in the Himalayan rallies, which sadly is not held anymore. I still remember as a very small kid, when i was studing in a boarding school in Shimla, we used to hear talk of these rally cars passing through the city.

Yeh, those guys are my friends, the first guy a Ian from the U.S., an hardcore Patrol fan, who has been all over the world looking for these, the fist Jonga belongs to a guy in australia(i forgot his name), but its just got half the original body and frame. You should have a look at the patrol(later version) that hes modded for offroading ,complete with custom portal axles and custom coil over shocks.
The last picture is of Steve from Australia, who has about 5, maybe 6 patrols, and thats just the ones that are complete, otherwise if you count in the bits and peices of the donor patrols, then i really don't know how much it would make. He even has very custom 5 speeder gearbox made for the patrol for a very limited time.

As for the old avatar picture, i changed to this one and soon realized i don't have a backup picture of the old one. Chances are, it might be somewhere in my computer, but if i don't find it, then i'll get something more appropriate. The problem is that i like neither of these avators, since i am not much of a Jeep only fan. To portray myself more clearly, i am looking for some standard dirty & dented offorder/diesel kind of avators. The moment i find or make that, it would remain my standard avator. Thanks anyways.

it was featured in the Auto car issue of May 2008.

Will post the restoration story in detail. here is a pic of the vehicle...
Hi Abhilash,

I visited our website myjonga.com

Excellent job my friend. Jonga is a fantastic vehicle and you have restored it very well. Just curious, during restoration, did you remove the bod from the chassis to strengthen and restore the frame? These vehicles have experienced lot of stress during the service years and might need some chassis repair.

Regards

Jaskirat
