I think you should go for the original Gypsy disc's and tires. Yes the "chrome rim embellishers " look's good. Check out the pic that gypsy belong's to a TBHPian.

The gypsy looks awesome in the red and black combination.
Has the work on the 4X4 completed by MASS?

regarding the 4x4 thing. There was not much work in it. Just the shaft and gear lever had to be fitted. On sat only they fitted the shaft and lever. i took it for a test ride along with the mechanic. Tried shifting for 2w to 4l, 4h things were all fine. After reaching mass i again tried but i couldnt shift the gear from neutral to 2w. It was too late that day, so i asked them to complete the work on monday to deliver the gypsy to my house. Monday the mechanic called up and told there is some problem in the gear liver, so its giving problem and it has to be changed. Worst part is, he told they dont have stock. This weekend i will show it to some other mechanic and try to find a solution.

Krishnatantri,

Gear lever gets struck because of non-use for long time. It happens in every gypsy. When struck in 4 H , move the vehicle slowly and push the level to 2 WL, it gets engaged. If not, open the rubber cover of the lever, press and turn the cap at transfer gear box top which holds the lever into TG. Lever comes out in your hand. Take a long screw driver and insert into lever slot and push the gear latch into position. Put back the lever and press lock. It should work now. If not get mechanic to do it.

We all have experienced this problem.

Yup if the tranny is not given work out, the box has annoying tendency to get stuck. Best is to consult a mech and ask him to do the needful and then figure out the process.

Worst case is when its stuck in N and wouldnt go anywhere else, so no power transfer at all

I started working out the 4x4 box on a weekly basis, in all the ratio's (for short while atleast) and after a month or so, this problem went away on its own. Not makhaan shift but typical hard shifts that you can expect from this vehicle.

Hi Krishna, I find a gypsy for sale in the classifieds section posted by you. Were you trying to sell this baby earlier or still open ? My cousine was looking for one.

The simple solution used to be - 1) ensure the wheels are straight, then rock the vehicle back and forth and engage/dis engage the 4H/L - worked every time on the 410 and the 413 - and yes use it more often is the best remedy!
Trust you have fitted the free wheel hubs!

Seeing a gypsy brings tears!

Cheers

Default 4x$ Shifter Problem

Krishna,

What you should check is the shifter sheet - which is an "O" ring at the base of the shifter. This needs to be replaced depending on use. The common indicator for replacement is the shifter getting stuck or being hard to shift across 2W /4H/ 4L. I went through the same problem as well!
