Hi friend, please do post pics once you do this upgrade. I'm eager to do a personality makeover on a bolero in the family. This sounds just like it. I hope you get the drive dynamICS sorted with 31 inchers. I'd then just follow your steps ☺
Cheers.

Bolero DI 4x4 with 31" 10.5 R 15 tyres and 15x8 rims. Thanks Pavan (Jeep Tyres).
Leaf re-cambering and one extra leaf front & back with Swastik Fabs dog bone shackles provides around 2-2.5 inches of lift to cater for the larger tyres. Tyres provide an extra 1.5 inches over stock tyre.

Pleasantly surprised that the ride and handling (especially steering) hasn't drastically been compromised after the upgrade. Gearing is now slightly off with the larger tyres. Planning to go in for a 4.88 diff ratio upgrade soon.

Also have got to get the fender flares made (cops in Kerala love to flag down vehicles with tyres jutting out), as well as more aggressive front and rear bumpers.

Hi Vivek,

With 31-32 inch Tyres 4.55 differential ratio is recommended to go with.If your planning to go for 33-35 inch tyres then 4.88 differential ratio is recommended.

31 inch tyres with 4.88 differential ratio will be a pure off roader.

In any case you may have to change carrier assembly from the current set up as it may be running with 3.73 differential ratio.

Hi Rajith, a question......will changing the diff ratio also not effect gearing in 2wd mode? Why not just change the transfer case ratios? What will be the effect of keeping the diff ratio unaltered, but changing the transfer case ratios ( provided the bolero t-case allows for this)

Yes,change in differential ratio will effect in 2wd mode also.Change in Transfer case ratio is not feasible with out full assembly replacement.
