@Beboy it would be interesting to know the dynamic behavior of this vehicle both off and on road. Your Jeep has come out well.

What tyres are these that are available in 235x85R16? Are they easy to find? Am considering 235x70R16 for my jeep right now but would like to check the 85s out too! Would they fit on the 6x16 rims of the 540?

your Jeep is coming out very well, jyobeb ! As vinod_nookala has pointed out, the extra length is not 'visible' due to the SPOA, and it looks very purposeful now.

My jeep with its side covered. I used SRF's PVC sheets which is supposed to be very durable. I feel that the side windows are too small as is the rear flap window. The liner who made it is not an expert with jeeps.

Wow.. Your jeep certainly looks big & macho. real offroading machine.
IMO, that scorpio air scoop does not go well with the jeep. Try to fit a custom fabricated scopp, better in a rectangular shape. more like rally cars (Subaru Impreza like)

Default Wheel Arch

Jyobeb,
Your jeep's come out very well. Congratulations!
What wheel arches are you using? I went the other day looking for a set for my 540 but couldn't find them. Is there another Mahindra model from which I could fit those on my jeep?

Cheers,
Adi
