better report to the mods, maybe the pic you tried to upload exceeded the maximum size allowed (90 x 90 pixels or 29.3KB).

[quote=harjeev;1077391]Hi Salkit,

Do you have more info on the 3rd guy who is selling his Jeep. I mean what specification, details , Model etc.
I am on the lookout for one a MM 550 4x4 post 1999 for myself but dont want to spend 2.5 L. My budget is 1.25-1.50 and even if the asking price was about 1.75-2.00 I could have streched it a little, to but 2.50 is very much outside my comfort zone considering there would another 40-50K that I could be spending in the next 6-8 months for the modificatins as per my likings.


Hi Hajeev,

I will try to get the details and let you know. I think even if you buy a Army disposal MM550, and do the restoration works, the cost will come around that much once all the work done. From Mayapuri you have to pay at least 70 - 90K. then engine, painting, and other works will cost you another 100K. And your time to spend on it for the restoration project. Over all the cost will be around the 2-2.5 lakhs. Better I think stick with the one which is ready to roll..!

But restorations is another factor and its an interesting area.. if you got time to spend on it..

tks/sali

Hi Feroz,

Sorry but do not have any pics on the jeep but hopefully will be going to Jaipur again this weekend and so will take pics and put them up.

The tub has been removed and work has started on the chassis, brakes, differentials etc.

Will update you on actual other progress next week.

Cheers !!!!!

Hi Randeep,

Since you are modifiying your jeep into a Renegade/Rubicon model, What kind of modifications will do on the Differentials to get a wide track look?

Are you planning to replace with a Wider FC differetial or do fit Wheel Spacers or any other idea?

Hi Sali,

No I do not plan to change the differentials, will not be putting any spacers as well. All I am doing is putting in larger rims and tyres which will come in directly under the extended skirting.

Apart from the engine gearbox i plan to keep all mechanical parts as they were.

Cheers !!!!!!

Ok so you mean if we put a -ve off-set wheels with fat rubber, will get a wide track looks and the tyre will come out to exteded flares. Do we get at least 4 inch wider than the original then?

See I dont intend to widen the jeep as wide as the new Wrangler or Rubicon. I'm goin for a design similar to the 1990-95 jeep wrangler. Which was practical and I do not need to modify my Jeep too much.

Maybe I widen the vehicle in my next project where in i shall have to install the FC differentials. I am also opening up my own garage pretty soon.

Hi Everyone,

Sorry to have not been able to post any reply's as we have just been blessed with a baby girl and have been tied up with the li'll angel.

I could not visit Jaipur for the same reason and shall surely update you on my Jeep's progress, though I know its going on real slow as my Mamaji's getting a few cars ready for a Vintage car rally that got postponed from December to Jan.

I think i should be visiting Jaipur sometime mid this month and would update you on my Jeep's progress.

Regards, A Very Happy New Year.

Cheers !!!!!!!!!

Randeep
