The engine was bought from Dubai, of a old Nissan 4*4 pick up, my brother is there so he helped me in that.

How much did the setup cost you? How are you going to handle the spare parts like oil filter etc considering that this engine is probably out of production.

Hey, well i have to improvise.
Answering your specific answer, a qualis airfilter would replace the Nissan engine on my jeep or even a Nissan LoadKing oil filter would do.

Hey thanks. This is the pooyumkutty, the trip was amazing, forest was thick, lot of elephants and yeah lot of forest guards and police too. I was looking out for a good OTR area where i can organise something on the lines of mini OTR meet.

Some interior pics, i have fixed the Marshal's steering . One thing that i have learnt from this experience is that the work on a Jeep never ends. You are always left with things to do.
