Randeep, what in your opinion are some of the qualities in a 'true' off-roader?

Now, let's discuss this till the cows come home.
We all are grown enought and we will not start a discussion Gypsy Vs Jeep. I am the one who has great respect for both these vehicles. I have already seen a Jeep in action (offcourse mine only) and going to see some more than 35 Gypsy's in action is Desert Storm 2009 for all full lenth 5 days (18th to 22nd Feb).

I mean breaking something from my body not jeep's The dam thing has such harsh ride. I'll soon be upgrading to tempo traveler shockers, read arka and few other say they are much better. Will update once done.

@ prmd_cochin
Let's say in terms of cost it will cost more than double the jeep shockers. The mm550 shocker by Gabriel retails for some 380 odd bucks. Tempo traveler shockers by Gabriel cost somewhere around 800.
In terms of ride and handling what I have read on this forum is that both should improve. Personally I have extensively traveled in a tempo traveler on broken/bad/no roads in MP and have been impressed by it's ride quality. Don't have any first hand experience of how it performs on 550.
The spare shop din't had four in stock so it will have to wait for some time.

Is there any other shop in Delhi for tempo spares apart from one near Jhandewalan?

cheers

If i can get temp traveller comfort i dont mind spending. Wiser move would be to wait and look for your experience.

This was said in context to "Rallying", no pun intended. Its just that in Rally's one needs to get a good Gypsy and put a lot of money in it too.

Hey folks, don't take it seriously guys. As I mentioned, it was meant in a lighter note. At times you need some humor else even wonderful things like 4x4 talk can become boring

Yeah I agree, GYPSY is BETTER than a JEEP and theres no 2 ways about it. It was designed later and performs better. Our man KS is living proof for that!

Well hope this is enough spice to get started guys!

i always wanted a gypsy over jeep, for many reasons like petrol engine, better fit and finish than jeep, etc.

but gypsy doesnt make you feel like owning a jeep! gypsy is no where close to jeep when it comes to owning a icon!

so its the JEEP for me even it come in the shape of MM 540/550.

"its a JEEP thing...you wont understand"

I have become pendulam between Jeep and Gypsy.

Both has their own characterstics and both can beat each other in different situations. Pls make it clear that Jeep is Jeep and Jeepsi (Jeep si or Jeep jaisi) is Jeepsi.... errr... I meant Gypsy actually..

Hi DK,

Your Blue Machine thread will be diverted into a debate forum sooooon . I think better to open a new thread with the subject line 'Jeep Vs Jypsi'.

Any way I stand for jeep (atleast for its classic look)

You are not the only one DK, many of us are mad enough to own a Jeep and a Gypsy..

And there is this true blue jeeper who doesnt accept anything other than a Cj3B petrol as a jeep! Definitely not a 540 diesel as a jeep!

Since we are not in the forum of vintage cars, I will not prefere giving more marks to Jeep just because it has some rich history / classic heritage look .

We should only discuss about the things this forum is made for (4x4 and offroad thing) cheers:.

Continue please....
