Manuuj,

Warn list the following dealer in India:

Dealer Name: 4x4 Off Road Equipment & Services Phone: +91-80-2356-1871 Fax: +91-80-2344-8054 Address: Ozone Bangalore Pvt. Ltd.
#4, 9th 'A' Cross, 12th Block
Kumara Park West
Bangalore, IN 560 020
Installs Products: YES
Might be worth contacting to see if they have any dealers in northern India.

Also find out how much the RR weighs as you do not want a winch that does not have the capacity to pull it (if it ever gets stuck ).

The powerplant is a 3.6 litre V8 Turbodiesel belting out 272 Bhp and 640 Nm of smooth power.

I'm adding pics for your viewing pleasure, as they say a picture is worth a thousand words..

there are lots of forum members based in dubai and into serious off roading. you can contact them to find out the availability of the winches for your rangie.

also i have heard these days the return ticket to dubai is 11,000 rs!! worth a trip to dubai and get what you want for your rangie!

there are lots and lots of shops and garages doing 4x4 stuff with genuine rangie and after market products for off-roading.

An interesting observation made that day was that the Pajero handled the course with aplomb and was not found lacking when compared to the RR.

That it got stuck was more my fault as i was a bit slow going through the wet mud.

The RR was light years ahead in terms of refinement, ride quality, drivebility, and power but as far as off road capability the pajero matched it step for step.

Maybe on more extreme tracks the difference would be more apparant.

When we left for home together which was about a hour and a half away the RR reached 19 minutes before us as it would easily cruise at about 160 with lots of reserve power and the Pajero seemed out of breath at about 130.

Also the headlights of the Rangerover were Bi-Xenon and far more effective than the headlamps of the pajero with stock halogens..
Thats a real comparison an auto mag cant give you.

Was wondering how you would rate the Montero wrt RR. And why RR? What were your other options (if their ever was)

Lovely ride you have and a practical one 365 x 24 x 7.

@amit v8: The guards were imported directly from the UK..cheers!

@jkdas: There was no other SUV even considered..the montero is also extremely capable offroad if not equally capable off road, but its on road manners are another matter altogether.

I am not exaggerating when i state that the Range Rover behaves like a tank offroad and a sports car on road.

Straightline speed and cornering ability are phenomenal on road while off road wheel articulation and control over the oddest surfaces is extremely reassuring and stable.

@kavesh55: You are right about the tyres..the stock pirellis lasted about 15k km.

This may be attributed to the following reasons:

a) A very heavy vehicle of around 2.7 tonnes on low profile tyres(265x55xR19)

b) A very powerful engine of 276 bhp (640Nm torque) which propelled the vehicle to 120-140 kmph before one even realized.

c) Extremely powerful high performance brembo brakes that bought the car to a halt from insane speeds in no time at all

d) Performance tyres engineered for control and performance rather than long life.

cheers all!

Are those OE tyres running on the Pajero? The sunk Pajero pictures look very like the ones from the autocar article last September. I was considering replacing my OEs and would be interested in knowing what you have done or are going to do about the Pajero's rubber.

Have kept the rubber as stock so far..that was the only instance of the pajero getting stuck and that too was more driver error (mine) rather than the car.

Have installed a Warn Winch and Winch Bumper to avoid such instances in the future..
