Hellow fellow Jeepers, I am stuck in my restoration. I am actually looking for NDMS tyres made by CEAT as I like the tyres appeal than that of the MRFs, can anyone help me in me getting the CEAT NDMS.

Hey Chanu,

Called him up, and he confirmed he can get CEAT for you. But he needs to bring it over from mumbai, and would take upto 4 days of time. Also he would need some advance amount to be paid pls decide accordingly .

This guy is good, can trust him with this. His number is

Rajesh - 9246549223 & 9000929223

Regds
Abhi

I am getting the jeep done the original style, with olive drab, soft top with the basic 1950's styling so the NDMS. I haven't seen any of this jeeps with a radial tyres yes however there are few with Gypsy rims and Gypsy tyres. I have thought of opting for the same if I feel the CEAT NDMS are not available.

I will surely opt for the link you have given for my tyre related issues, but I believe Abhi's help should bring my CEAT desire true. Thanks folks for helping me.

I see this thread is almost like abandoned, like restoring a vehicle let me take up this thread and share my experiences thus saving time and a new thread for the same stuff. Hope I am not bumping this thread and running my own story, if so moderators please move it.

I have been a normal guy with no much knowledge about Jeeps, I started liking them since one old engineer used to travell in a Ford MB running on Matador engine and used to come to our two wheeler workshop where I was restoring a DKW. Thought of buying that but the engineer was not of that kind. I said to my self two wheeler is good enough for me and continued admiring them, time passed by the love for jeeps was cornered but still alive rather growing somewhere in my heart. The jeep madness was growing and was growing big, I used to follow a good jeep thought I have to take a different route and getting late to the office. Stare them like a small kid, made friend with a denter so I can see more of jeeps and talk to him about jeeps, few weekends spent like that. The denter used to tell me " a low bonnet jeep now a days is very expensive affair dont even venture in it" that killed the desire of owning one.

One day while going to office and as usual stuck at looking a low bonnet jeep WILLYS which was of so so condition and again a dieselised one, she was looking like a army tank with that dark green colour and perfect shape. Out of curisioty I just asked the guy is it for sale then to my good luck he said yes it is and I couldnt stop my self and imediately rang the owner to find the offer and he was on the top of a hill the price negotiations didnt work well and I again had to say to myself No LOW BONNET WILLYS for me.

6 months past away...

One day my cousin wanted to buy a jeep and wanted the same day for his fields and due to bad roads it was a good option so we have decided to meet the denter who eventually brought us a Excellent condition MM540 and we were happy, the jeeper inside me was satisfied and I throughly enjoyed the jeep, honestly started loving it. Later due to some odd reasons we had to sell this MM540 because it didnt have much to do as there were new roads laid down, I wanted to retain her but didnt want to block the money which I was saving to buy a WILLYS low bonnet (even though not original) so we parted with a faithful machine.

Mom gifted me a Maruti 800 as I met with accident and doc adviced me not to drive two wheeler any more, one fine morning i got a call from the same driver who said the Low bonnet is for sale then and enquired if I am still intrested, I jumped with joy and said I would love to buy, then we went checked the jeep and the owner was selling it because he wanted to buy Gypsy so we sat and discussed and struck the deal, I had to sell the brand new maruti gifted by mom (with her permission) and brought my dream machine inspite of doc advice to avoid strain on my back.

I drove here around and every day I felt stronger and stronger and it was better than any other jeep I drove or to that matter any car. I throughly enjoyed jeep WILLYS than anything else. Now I am in process of restoring the jeep WILLYS and hence the story, I wish to share all the progress with you guys and in return I need all your experiences, advices, feed back etc. Hope you will.

Hi Guys I am Bala and am a jeeper and I have loads of news for you all guys. I am also getting my Willys CJ2A doneup here in Hyderabad and my experience so far has been really good, the workmanship or Craftmanship is awesome, absolutely fantastic.

These guys are real magicians trust me guys they are good at it. I've seen umpty numbers of American jeeps shaping up, converting the Long body to Short chassis, plonking off the old engines to Toyota 1C, 2C and the latest trend is for Toyota Qualis engines costing 70-80k, these jeeps also adorn with power steering from a Innova and others, power break so efficient you can just stop at inch difference razor sharp!

The paint job is quite awesome, and in my opinion painting jeeps are more thougher than a car. It takes close to a month and the outcome is neat and clean.
The rear lights look different ,where are they from?

your jeep will look good without those crash guard for lights,just my suggestion

Thanks Josh guy, thanks for your comments, the jeep your are talking about is one of the creations by my mech. Those tail lamps are replicas of Jeep Wrangler's (Made in Taiwan) That grille on the tail lamp is hand made (I couldn't believe that) they give good protection as the tail lamps are very fragile apart from costing expensive, ya those could have been black powder coated rather chrome but its according to the paint. Thanks for appreciating it.

Hi DKG, my family has plans of purchasing the M&M Thar (in fact we have booked one) but after discussing the with most of my friends I have come to a conclusion that its not value for money, I have not seen the Thar personally but Looking at the snaps and the quality of work is not that impressing. Instead we can hunt for a good used Jeep and get it built the way once here. Please can you give me the contact details of the artist behind these wheels.

Excellent and inspiring post!

I'm naive when it comes to Jeeps but I would love to own one!

I heard that Jeep is finally planning a launch in India? is that true?

Welcome xydon to the exciting world of JEEP, you need to "drive it to know it".

I never thought I would get into this, since the day I saw a Ford MB sometime in 2002 which an Retd. Engineer, I own a similar one today. This journey has take me to whole lot of wonderful experiences, I have owned few Jeeps (MM540 stock, MM540 customised, Willys, Bolero LX) and wish to have a MM550 and will continue till the last day.

Being in Hyderabad is another blessing, this place is Mecca for JEEP, you are in a gifted city of talented people. We shall meet up sometime and do let me know in case you need any help.
