Hey Chiragh,
Sorry, i was always thinking that the below mods you suggested was for a purpose. The flaunting thing some how did not strike my mind. Cheers buddy, in pimping your ride.

Hey all,

While in germany, I saw something I'd never heard of or seen before. A Suzuki Samurai with a 1.9 liter Turbo-Diesel Engine.

Before anyone asks, it was not an engine-swap & was an option. I have never seen it before even in Nepal where there are so many Samurais, Gypsys & Jimnys.

I wonder how it performs, I expect it to be pretty capable. The torque developed by petrol Gypsy engines are pretty disappointing, and fail to compliment an otherwise very capable off-roader. Anyone with information, please do enlighten us.

By the way, had anyone heard of this?

High Altitude World Record

On April 21, 2007, the Chilean duo of Gonzalo Bravo and Eduardo Canales drove their modified Suzuki Samurai (SJ413) up Ojos del Salado, past the previous record set by a Jeep at 6,646 meters (21,804 ft), setting a new record for the highest altitude attained by a four-wheeled vehicle at 6,688 meters (21,942 ft).
The Samurai in question benefitted from wheel, tire, suspension changes, and a supercharged G16A 4-cylinder underhood. It was the third attempt for the two man team, after encountering weather difficulties on the first attempt and an engine fire in the second. The previous record holder's team lead by Matthias Jeschke riding a Jeep Wrangler, left a sign reading "Jeep Parking Only: All others don't make it up here anyway". The Chilean team found the sign, blown down by strong winds, and brought it back to civilization as a souvenir.

The modified vehicle used in the expedition.



This Record was duly Certified by the Guinness World Record in July 2007.

You will get whatever you want here -- Jo maango ge usse zayada he milega

PS: And Dabwali is near to where you are located. So, happy hunting.

PPS: A Jeep will look very good for whatever you are looking for. A Gypsy will not give you that much 'flaunting & street level power'.

Cheers,
that is not my taste ...

what i really mean is this

its lowered, fast , easy to handle & most important eye catchy

Wow. Great. Go ahead man. it would look awesome -- but remember it's a jeep & not a gypsy. With Gypsy you may not get this.

So buy a jeep & get going towards flaunting & street power sir. I am sure many garages in North India can do this to a jeep & much much more.

i don't know when my gypsy will come but first thing will be lowering don't care how much it costs .. jeep is very good offroader but little harsh for me , and i really don't like diesel vibrations & sound so will like to stay away from it !!

Lowering won't cost much, only a few leafs have to removed!
I've seen some really spooky Gypsies around with all sorts of mods. & some egs. look better than M&M jeeps too.
