I am not posting pictures of the rear, it is horrendous. The front looks good though. Will post pictures of the rear in the weird and wacky jobs thread if my friend acts up.

I have been considering buying a Bolero Camper myself. A question, how do you feel about the turning ratio? It has a very long wheel base. I have a narrow road, gate and driveway to negotiate. Any troubles in tight places?

Did the AC and PS come factory fitted?

AFAIK, the 4WD Camper does not get the above. Or am i wrong?

Take a look underneath the rear at about the fuel filler cap. The rear springs end about there. You can chop until the rear springs relatively easily. That's how much you can lop off the rear end....I am guessing about 2.5 feet. This may cut down a little on rearend sway. It will, of course, greatly improve your departure angle. My guess is it will improve handling if you notice it at all.

One weird thing about this vehicle, the rear seat backrest obstructs the rear window and the view. I wonder who the H designed that into it?
There is still pretty good vision out the rear window, but maybe you could do something about that...lower the backrest or something.

designation, so any progress on chopping the rear?
Slightly Off topic: 2 days back i saw a blue bolero camper in Noida with a private number belonging to Punjab. So I guess in Punjab also its possible to register the camper as a private vehicle.

desigNation, do check with Shanawaz as well. He did a chop job of his Gypsy.

I think chopping the chassis till the suspension mounts should be fine.

Saw your ride in-the-metal a few times around town. Very nice!

What happened to your black Baleno? Do you still have it?

Hay,
Thought of sharing these pics, a set of good tyres can totally enhance the character of your ride. It does look real cool now, with a set of tyres like these and it can chomp off anything that comes in its way.

Those are BFGs

The black bolero in the picture is the export version with IFS up front. wish hey would offer this combo in India. Here we have to go with the Leafspring set up if we need the 4WD Bolero.
