Hey Harjeev,

Awesome job buddy. Must say, the JEEP looks like its just been driven off the showroom

What does the 'public' say when they see the JEEP. What about kids, old people and others opinion? Has the JEEP given you a different image in the eyes of society?

Final question, Would you really do this all over again?
Patience!!! This is a trait that I never had. Even my family was surprised with the level of patience I have shown on this rebuild. You see that it was my impatient attitude which prompted me to rebuild the 3B before the 550.
But now I can say that anyone who is impatient should go in for a rebuild of a 550, but the trick is should be the same way i have done it. HA HA HA!!!

Your final question was the primary reason for me deciding against selling the 550. I will never dream of doing this all over again. So I am now going to keep the 550 for good. Even if I stop driving the 550 for OTR or anything (which I can never dream of doing) it will still remain parked.

I am not sure about the run in. You see earlier I was planning to take the 550 for an outstation trip maybe to Ludhiana or Amritsar and do the 1000kms. But it has become quite hot here in north. So I will most probably run it in slowly and get it ready for the monsoons.

All in my family, my office and friends seem to like the 550 more than the 3B!!! Only my 3 year old son, Rajvansh, likes the 3B better than the 550. When I point towards the 550 and ask him whos jeep is that he says
papa's jeep and then on his own points towards the 3B and says Rajvansh's Jeep.

Harjeev, mitra mubarkan mubarkan (Congratulations congratulations)

The jeep really has turned out very well. I think all the wait patiently or impatiently has paid off. The green looks awesome

I agree with others. A new set of shoes and the jeep will look like it just rolled off the showroom floor.

Happy jeeping buddy! have fun

Some what like this. And this vehicle is up for grabs if anyone is interested.
Dear Harjeev I read in the traffic voilation list in Mumbai Olice the Painting the private vehicle in army,military colour shade is an offence and your vehicle can be immpounded.Kindly check out this.

Hi Iqbal,

There is a violation of having the army green only if you are using army like markings and numberings. Plus the shade that army as is different from most of the private vehicles you see, including Harjeev's.

And I dont think Harjeev ever plans to take his Jeep to Mumbai.

Also, when we went for an OTR to Hissar Shashank's jeep too had an olive green army look-a-like colour and we were allowed into the Armoured Div main gate without any problems.

Cheers !!

Army Green Colour and army shades are 2 different things, by Army shades it is meant the kind of camoflages & other markings & emblems including numbers.

Great decision on keeping the 550. If you do think of selling it. PM me with a generous qoute.
Looks like a Team-Bhpian in the making. Dont sell off his 3B either.

@ Harjeev - Don't worry much about army shade. I have been running army colour as it is from auction and only time I was pulled over by our dear Delhi police is when when the thulla wanted to inquire about how to get auction jeeps.

The best part is he asked me "iska colour nahi change karana padta", I said no jusr erase the markings and you are good to go. He seemed pretty happy and waved me goodbye.

cheers

Ironwolf,

thulla is a cop and why should he be deprived of owning a jeep. Maybe he wants to join us for OTRs.

Autocraze,

Hi Bigman,

That I believe Vishwas would have given as he was the one who was stopped and asked about the auction jeeps.

Cheers !!
