Hi Satnam,

Well done Buddy!!! Congrats!! Now you have to plan your trip to India ASAP to drive this .

Just small question- Can you ask you Dad or Bro for the noise factor of BFGs as I also liked the tread pattern for it. The only thing I heard about BFG is it bit noisy on road.

Renegade

Tyres are 235/70/R16, tubeless on the stock army rims.

My cousin said noise is not too much, you , I guess compared to a car the Jeep is more noisy anyway so tyre noise may get drowned out by the hood flapping, engine noise etc etc.

Interior is pretty much the stock trim with PV covers on, I think in one of the previous posts there is a picture of one of the seats after it had been trimmed. We did have to get the seats done twice as the first shop did a really poor job. Besides that there are rubber mats and the addition of a cigarette lighter.

Fancy doing up a UAZ 469 next, if one is available for the right price.

I think I will forgo the shovel, axe and spade, the dabwali willyx coetrie have finished that look off. Still looks good on a SWB but not so good on the larger 540/550s.


Hi Bigman, the 550 i am picking up has all the mountings of the shovel and the pickaxe under the rear seats on the wall of the mud guards and its looks neat too. As for lamps i have found a pair of lucus spotlamps made in france from one of the scrap guys, I picked them up for Rs250 each. There is a switch on the top of the lamp that activates both the bulb filiments at a time. When its switched on it the focus is like a spot and as you flick the button focus spreads to the left and right with a spot in the center. its really good.

Hi Satnam/WW

I have the same fitment in my 550. I am also finding Axe/Shovel and spade.

Satnam, Did you do any alterations for fitting the Tubeless BFGs on Stock Army Rims?

Ricky,

The rims just needed a good clean and they have been fine, no air loss or anything so far.

Please post a picture of these mountings and what the shovel etc look like. If its under the rear seats it might be ok, what I do not have time for is those axe, shovels mounted on the body tub.

Satnam, 22 if you dont mind can I ask where is this workshop where you got the work done?

I saw a patiala registration innova in one of the pics when the jeep was still under restoration.

I some how feel that the workshop seems to be in the Ldh area I might be wrong though.

Hi Bigman,

I sure is raining MM550's in the 4x4 section. Your Jeep sure has a presence of its own. Beautifully restored I must say. You must be having a ball of a time driving your new Jeep.

Regards,

Autocraze

Updated pic of my mm550, added some shackles on the front, headlight grills and some hella 3000's.

I have also bought some new front seats which should be recovered and fitted sometime this week. The wiper system has also been bought and should be fitted soon.
