Nope unfortunately this meet up was in between personal trip for both of us, i took only a short spin on tarmac and a small portion of broken tarmac. For your reference it rides like a very soft version of spidey

This thread (Importing a used car on transfer of residence) might be the right place for that question.

Also do you have any idea about the exact duty structure and what special formalities were needed to bring this beauty out of customs ?

Even he had to go through lot of ordeal at customs and they did not accept depreciation and applied point blank with the duty structure. Again at RTO it was a hassle since the concept of modification is a grey area. Don't have much details of this.

TN 38 RTO is a very famous RTO. Its the place where i stay as well. if you dont mind, can you connect me with him on PM? would love to visit him and look at his machine

TN38 CB is the current registration number running (from August 15th i guess). Your friend must have got it registered in the last 8 weeks. Just one word for your friend to go through getting it here and legally making it roadworthy -- #Respect

And now that is what men fantasize about ! The first thought that comes to my mind is to run to the machine ,grab the wheel and drive away to Glory...

This truly demands loads of Love and Patience.

[Mods, I ain't sure if photographic comments are allowed ]

Every pic is droolworthy !

And I am sure every single drop of sweat spent during the process will only return him miles of smiles.

Thanks for sharing !

Yes i understand it was quite a task to get the vehicle registered. Owner is not a member here, will check with him if he can share the number.

Dear Jaggu - thanks for this thread, I have saved all the pictures in my hard disc and will copy them to a backup also. This is reference material for me. This is what a Jeep should be, and it is!

Best regards,

Great vehicle, lovely pictures. Thanks for sharing. But I still do not get the part about the Postal Dept. Jeeps. I thought they had only particular SWB models with sliding doors, and not the LWB models with full features, made with RHD for use by postmen ?

Here is wishing Mahindra makes something similar if not identical in comfort, styling, features, and power. We have not had a good trailer towing 4WD since the Jonga, though the MM540/550 and Marshalls can tow an odd compressor or such for construction companies over flat paved roads. The XUV 500 and Scorpios are not real SUVs but luxury "high-cars" or 2WD STATION WAGONs as they used to be called in the old days !

Rural (read as broken road and no road terrain) needs might have been the reason. This is what the owner had mentioned during our conversation.

Dear Anirban - you must be kidding! . Not possible in this life, I have learnt the hard way! Maybe, instead of "not possible" it ought to be "not worth"! One more smiley is called for I guess!

Why not, sir?
With many off road challenges becoming increasingly successful in India, i guess it is about time we had something like this here.

Don't you think he has already tried, that too when he has "platforms on a platter" that can be taken and converted to something we want. (I was merely taunting him with that earlier statement of mine)

Unfortunately the success of offroad challenges and the real reason for the kind of response that the "offroader" that he created is either not visible to or wrongly assigned by the Gods above that approve what products see the light of the day. To top it all, there will be frontal crash test norms that will dictate quite a few things.
