Something wrong here about the model & year of manufacturing. Also looking at the jeep, it appears a completely different model altogether.

Good looking jeep. So how did you get hold of a 2005 model Army 550? Was it an accidental vehicle?

Hi Everyone,

Here are a few pics of my Greyhound playing around in slush during an NIOC OTR held on 10th July 10. It was simply wicked.

Cheers

The end product of the 6 wheel jeep from the above post was featured in July 12th 2010's Metroplus(The Hindu)

All Team-BHP 4x4 JEEP Pics!-6x6.jpg

Extract from The Hindu Site:

"Breaking down two MM 540 jeeps, an automobile enthusiast has made a broader and elongated jeep with six wheels. Julian, who was in the news recently for launching a multi-bike club, takes along this whacky machine for recovery work during his club rides. In fact, the necessity of a recovery vehicle was what drew him into this ‘jeep project'.


Since he wanted the recovery vehicle to be out of the ordinary, he rejected obvious options such as installing a trailer. Instead, he went in for two MM 540 jeeps. While one was in good condition and required him to shell out Rs. 1.75 lakh, the other was rundown and came cheap at Rs. 40,000. The challenge was to combine the two and create a jeep never before seen in this part of the world. Julian managed it at the cost of Rs. 3.25 lakh (overall) and after suffering a million mosquito bites (while at work in his garage) in the 11 months it took to complete the ambitious project.

First of all, a new chassis was built to support a multitude of innovations that had been pencilled in. The number of slats in the grille is twice that of a regular MM 540 grille, revealing a major modification under the bonnet. A Bolero engine has superseded the MM 540's famous tractor engine. The replacement was aimed at a smoother and less noisome drive. The new vehicle was also equipped with power steering.


The jeep has been lowered for stability. The six Endeavour tyres stand outside the line of the body, again for more stability. The jeep does not have power in all its six wheels. It is a four-wheel drive with six wheels. Despite the additional heft, the jeep lends itself well to off-roading. A roll cage has been installed for protection on treacherous terrain.

Julian plans to take the jeep, which he calls Yellow Fox, down the coast from Kanyakumari to Goa. He is wary of a few areas along this route where man-made or natural waterways meet the sea, and create deep pockets of water. “This problem is found near every city. Once I am confident of fording these stretches, I will set off on the adventure.”


PRINCE FREDERICK"

What is the point of having 4 wheel drive in a six wheel vehicle? Am I missing something here?
Wouldn't the extra length be a negative addition for offroading, and wouldnt a trailer be more purposeful and versatile, with the hitch between itself n the jeep?

From what I have read about him, Julian started up and organized as popular Motorcycle riding club in Chennai. This vehicle is meant to be the support vehicle to carry gear etc..
