Sorry dude .

I no longer have a contact as such.
Army men get shifted once every 3 years and its almost been 5 years since i have been out of punjab.

Hopefully Randhava will be able to help you out as he too is heading there..

Bigman: Am totally unaware of a possibility in Moga.
Dabvali seems the ultimate choice in such a case as has been discussed in other threads.

All the best.
Cheers

Mayapuri is like jeep parts heaven. I am going out there in a couple of days to look for some goodies for my 550.

I was thinking some wider axle, 16" army spec rims, and maybe a mil spec trailer.

Won't shave for a couple of days prior, wear greasy clothes, bathroom chappals, spit frequently..........should give me better pricing.

Very well put Gaurav. That's the operative sentence for NOT getting ripped in Mayapuri.

I had been to Dabwali about two months back. However, one thing is very clear that there are no MM550s there.
Moga is a market where one can get used jeeps, but not military specs.
