ohh for rains either you can get the full hood or cover the sub box and amp with a plastic. make sure that the box is not on the ground just cover the entire thing with the plastic. i will try to get the pics of what i have done to save it from the water.

I love the black wheels + white lettered tyres look. Your Gypsy looks really neat. It will be fun to offroad together once I get my Jeep back.

Sudev??? its pdev devang...ohh ask me about the ride on the rear i am a permanent guest every saturday on the stand-up rear ride,its awesome man,one helluva experience,but these guys drive too fast and sometimes on turn its a bit scary,i really love pdev's gypsy,we leave all our cars parked when the "MonStar" comes.

Edit: pdev I am working out for a new Subwoofer for your ride.cheers..!!! "Mauja hi Mauja"

@khansultan, bro its the alloys which i got with the car when i bought it, yes it has got matt black finish.

Frankly speaking i enjoyed the drive after esteem boosters, feel more confident about braking.
Dont you think it is over servoed, esp in offroad situations?

I am planning to get ICE done in my Gypsy as well and mine is also half soft top (like yours) but an concerned about the safety of the ICE.
I had ICE in my gypsy too, while it was in Hardtop and running LPG. Had a Pio 8950HU with a Pio 6800 Amp and Sub et all.

Removed the same when I made it to current trim. Also I prefer the engine growl to music. The dilemma as to which is better keeps one confused!

FYI, Mine is a 97 King with a 4x2 headers, K&N filter, a blue printed engine running an esteem carburettor!

6.0L engine in a gypsy... how did it fit in, there no place for anything bigger than a 3L engine with four cylinder..I am curious which engine???? may be a 6 cylinder with 2.5 to 3 liters...that may fit in with some mods.
