As much as I love off roading my knowledge of the various Jeeps of yesteryears is very limited. Perhaps some of the experts around can help out?

3.5 to 5 lakh is WOW huge

i remember 4 years back i got a quote for around 1.8 max
it was something like this

50k for the body
40k for the engine some toyota diesal one
40k for nice mags and tyres
20k for the paint
i guess another 10-15k for here and there

looks like i didnt have the right person

but i would seriously love a nice kaiser with big and chrome wheel fat rubber
and a all offroading capability

Hope someone from M&M checks out these pictures and gets inspired.

Infact I used to work for a dealer in Dubai that sold Wranglers and even the new Wranglers didn't look as hot as these. These guys have simply outdone everyone else. Without exaggeration I have not seen any Jeep as well finished or detailed. It is an exceptional talent and achievement.

Ofcourse the custom Jeeps in the US should be mindblowing too.

Well awesome pictures dude. Just droolmaal.
One point is the modern looking jeeps are easier to customise compared to the vintages. The cj3a has an awesome fan following and the jeeps kindof exclusive too. Very few will be seen on the road. It takes ages to get one in immaculate condition with all details looked into. Hats off to the owners.

Well mahindra have stopped making the jeep and expect customers to pick up the base version of the bolero camper if i am not wrong. Its tough to actually get hold of a mm540 even these days. Am talking of a first hand one. Rumour doing rounds was you need to order a minimum of 100 pieces for you to be able to get delivery.
Well scorpio is more profitable i think but jeep is anyday better than it.

I think Mahindra should simply offer their military spec Jeep to the general public. I love the way it looks and its just right for the kind of fun we want to have offroading. Even if you break something shouldn't be too expensive to fix. If they price it at around 6 lacs for the 4x4 version its a terrific buy

amazing jeeps - but somehow i feel jeeps look better with a MATT finish paint than the GLOSSY look ( maybe it gives that "period " touch )

Beautiful pics. Incidentally AHO 1794 was used by my aunt and uncle as a daily driver for many years in Secunderabad, still on the original unopened petrol engine. They sold it some years back and the first thing the new owner did was plonk in a diesel.
