Dude! I mean... seriously!? You are trying to make a Jeep out of the poor Paj What with the massive weight and long wheelbase, it is half as likely to cross a tough obstacle as a Jeep/Gypsy, not to mention the damages - I am sure you know the cost of MM spares by now

No! You misunderstood - read carefully. I said SUVs are a different ball game from jeeps.

You have to be very careful while taking your line unlike jeeps which can take a fair bit of bashing and don't burn a big hole in the pocket when something breaks as compared to the SUVs.

Tejas - are the fogs installed on your new bumper OE ones? If not, could you please suggest a good alternative to OE ones, which can fit into the regular bumper? One of mine has developed a crack and the OE part costs a bomb!

Nope. Not OE ones. Though they are quiet bad; not that i liked the OE ones on the original bumper either. The search continues.

Had a Father's Day picnic with my 2 year old son!

An isolated spot just 50 meters off the road but offbeat and something only accessible by four wheel drive vehicles. Had a great time!

I love what you have done to your SUV and every bit serves a purpose.

How easy it for you to source genuine spares for the vehicle, I recall reading intially about the clutch issue.

Lovely pic Tejas!

Some questions if you don't mind - how do you find such places? Do you do a reccee before going to such places? Is there any kind of permission required from authorities before taking a vehicle to such places - even if they are not privately owned?

If you are still in search for the fog lamps, I would like to recommend the Hella 60MM Modules. I have not used them personally but have found good reviews on the internet. I hope it will help you.
Thanks
