@xtreme power

Oh Man...! I'm simply blown away.
Looks awesome man. Great job.

More pics and some detailed specs please.

Dumb question : Does all this increased height mean boat like feel ?

Allan, to say that the jeep looks killer/awesome would be an uderstatement. Not only it looks great + is very very capable also. In 4 days flat doing this and having attention to detail is commendable.

Kudos, brother..

You are a star.

I was around when the work was just completed and the jeep stood on thinner tyres.
The front bumper with the light mountings look awesome. Is it custom made ? If so then can you share the design ?

You must definitely do a complete writeup of this project.
It gives inspiration to mortals like me for our projects.

Keep up the great work buddy and it was a pleasure meeting you in pune.
My gypsy project is progressing slowly but surely. Will update my thread. Seeing your work and the speed at which it was done has left me speechless.

Dr. Abheek Ghosh

If only you was in Punjab/Haryana . If you can turn around vehicles in 3/4 days then you could have a nice little niche market for renovated 4x4 army disposals. With Mahindra silent on launching any new 4x4 jeep for the Indian market people will look for alternatives.

Lovely job done. Can we please have details of the SPOA and underbody pics.

What mods were needed to get the SPOA done?

Wow! What a Jeep... In my 14 months of Jeep ownership I have not been able to do 10% of the work you have done 4 days.

Now I have a real strong reason to attend Goa MGE.
