Bigger tyres would tend to fill the void, I think, along with a more massive front bumper that stretches across to the outside of the wheels. In a crowed market place I do not think I would want my front wheel to be the first thing to whack a pedestrian....whose uncle is the chief magistrate. An open wheel like that might also be illegal, dunno. Better to knock somebody down with a bumper than to run over them with a wheel.

Thanks deseartking, the tyres are maxxis mudzilla's i got them for rs85000 from a friend's dealer 6 months back but now they are Rs10,200 each.
As for the jeep the work is not complete, and the short bumper will work better while offroading.

whicked wheels, the color is too good. but
1. the mm540 will not look good with those cj3b kinda fenders. modify your front fenders to match the rear or else it will not look good when finished.
2. why is the front more leaning towards the ground than the back??

Are you also planning to convert it to 4x4? Those mudzilla's on the rear wheels should take you most places without 4x4.

Hi Whicked,

The paint job on your jeep looks nice. There are yet lot of changes that you would need to make on your jeep to make it look like the Renegade. The Renegade has a modified suspension that has it raised. The roof line in the Renegade is in line with the doors unlike the MM540's.

I bet you jeep will look much different once all work is completed as right now one actually cant figure out the end product.

All the best, and do keep us posted on the progress.

Wicked lookin' Jeep! I'd love to have these kinda wheels on my Classic, but am only worried that the engine will get bogged down by such massive tyres. The XD3P isn't exactly big on horsepower.

Hi Krishna, you got a real steal. Better take your car to a temple and get its "Nazar utharo". All the t-bhp eyes are on it. Great going.
