Some pictures of my rear seats. These are the last row seats of the Innova. They fold down and lift up sideways to make space for anything you want to keep.

yes that AC blower is for the rear passengers, its mentioned in his earlier reply!

i always thought the 4x4 offroaders came with just the basic equipments and now we get to see a AC blower for rear passengers!

Like I always said, there is no reason why the driver and passengers cannot travel in comfort even in an off-roader, as long as it does not compromise on reliability and ability!!

Hi Jyobed,

Your Jeep is coming out really well. I liked the rear seats. I have quite similar setup in my 540, but seats are not foldable. How will be the entry for rear passengers? is it through front door?
Can you please let me know how much does it cost for set of 4 spacers?
Is it possible to get it done and arranged if required.

regards,
Girish

@Joshguy. The Innova seats were procured for me from the local Toyota dealer who is a good friend.
@ Girish. The spacers can be done at any good lathe, the key being "GOOD LATHE"!

@jyobeb

In the 1st picture I can see the steering box or is that the power steering pump (the thing behind the bumper)???
and if that's the power steering box then have you drilled a hole in the front cross member like the one in the second picture??? (the second pic is from a 2005 model MM550)

Looks like the 2005 MM550 either fell from a hill or damaged by some landmine. Anyways does the 2005 model came with factory fitted powersteering for Army.

I doubt that the 2005 model came with a power steering as when a powersteering is installed there are power steering hoses running from the powerstering box to the fluid container

Looks like a PTO to me.
