This looks like new, as if right out of showroom. Nicely mentained.

The rims are dark green in color. Actually, the pics were taken from my mobile (that explains the poor resolution). I agree 100% that the Jeep will look much better with lighter color rims. Unfortunately, they were already painted went I got the jeep. I definitely plan to change the color, maybe next year!

I also am thinking of painting the windscreen area same as rest of the Jeep. Another mod planned is to reduce the height of the b-pillar (to the windscreen level). Alternatively, take the b-pillar completely and fit a roll bar.

This is what mandeep planned initially to do in my jeep. But very few denters here are capable of pulling it off properly, so finally we didn't take the chance.
And your jeep does look lot better without the top, though in NCR its quite impractical to drive without it except for winters.

The mod does not look hard to do...and PSing those alloys is easy, but to source them !?

Bad Boy Helped me paint these up.

Please give feedback on which is the best color combo below. And if there is any other option to consider with black top. Not Green or Black suggestions please!

congrats on your jeep.

johannes would you like give details about the jeep and where it was reconditioned in delhi?

how much it cost you for reconditioning?

did you drove it all the way from delhi by yourself?

looking forward for the detailed info.
