That's what lies in the near feature as demand for 4WD jeeps increases & there is absolutely no source for supply. As more & more people are engaging into off-road activity, the prices for new (Affordable/ Basic) 4WDs like Major, Invaders will also rise.

Then I tried to source it from Coorg and Vayanad without much success. That is when I got a call from one of my friend and he told that there is an MM540 for sale. Thought of purchasing it and adding the 4WD, I went there to Test drive it, Looked stock condition apart from an altered full body tailgate and neat interiors. And Decent looks. No modifications apart from a pair of Hella lights in front and one in back. Got it to take a drive, then I noticed there is 5th gear mark on the gear lever. I drove it and yes I engaged the 5th gear and I was jumping with joy came back after the drive, opened the hood, Boy!! That was a pretty neat engine and engine bay without any oil leak or rust. I checked the RC Book, and there you go!!! MM550 XDP(B), and found its 2.5 liter engine (2498). Paid the Adv today, and will fix the deal next week.

man u are lucky. i tried getting one of those and know what I GOT A SIMILAR ONE FROM VIRAJPET.cheers:
