Whitemm550, the rear folding seat was fabricated here in Hyd. most jeeps here have them as they are convinient and front facing especially when friends and family 4+ are going around, for better acess from the tailgate I got it made this way that the backrest drops down and lands on the seat where we land our butt. it is easier to put your leg over the low height of the collapsed back and once you are in place, ready to sit,,, just put the back rest in upright positiont and lean on it.
Note: in the pics you can see the seat with the backrest upright and also down.
Aaaah those wheels! I managed to get them in Hyderabad through some scrap dealer, lucky me.

Sabreesh,
Thanks, I have not done much action and whenever I have there was no one to photograph it, I promise to post action shots when I get someone to photograph them, and the XD3P is a power horse, brute and mated with a 5 foward 4wd Bolero gear box it will be a hibrid in it's class. there are many engine and gear box options, but I would like to stick with Mahindra inside and out.

Sid,
Hella's are planned for my next jeep which is in the body shop right now, that one will have a teenage character to it when it's done compared to this one.. conservative and serious. and I hate Alloys on jeep too, thanks for your feedback pal.

If possible, can you post the specifications of your Jeep. Is this an Army spec one?

BTW, your jeep is very similar to kittigadu's jeep -- his is black in color and also from Hyd

Kitt's Jeep

PS: The wheels of your jeep look very good man.
Khan,
In Hyderabad they love thier Jeeps whether they are Kaiser, Ford, Willys, Mahindra.. the saying, "Jeeps are not bought, they are built". is religiously practiced here.
Mine is a MM540 not an ex army, always was a civilian. Kitt's Jeep I saw here on the forum and suprisingly never saw it on the road. Very nice looking one.

Hey Fazal! Amazing Jeep you got there. Brilliantly done up considering most of the mods are in expensive and very practical!

Btw do you study at St. Mary's?

MODs,

Please Help. This was a great thread until the wind blew in jeepster.

Jeepster, fantastic jeep mate !. I would buy it at a heartbeat if I wanted to run a taxi service. FYI, There a another section for MUVs. If you post pics there, you will have Tavera and Qualis owners burning with envy !!

Apologies to any 2WD, Jeep Extra long wheel base fans that I offended.

Thanks, digitalrider,
I have started a new "Hyderabad MM540 before and now" thread in which you can see the before and after pics of my jeep.
I am 47, not from St. Mary's, but from All Saints.

He is that the same Geep . You where right small mod's do make a lot of difference . Will ask my uncle to try some thing like this . He has a MM Commander . You could have added some black alloy's to the same would have been cool .( I know its bit costly though ) .

Hey, what rims are these - pressed steel?

And do they give a decent offset for the tyres like alloys would do?
