I would love to tag along till i get my own gypsy. I am sure its just the normal starting trouble we all mallus have, once someone does the honours the trend just sets in.

But I am afraid if someone will be generous like Arka.

Which part of Kerala you are from?
I been told by a fellow Bhpian from Trivandrum , saying that they do OTR with their Jeeps and Gypsies and they meet every week in Trivandrum.
I too live in trivandrum. Please leave me a PM when ever you have plans to go for an OTR

Default Gypsy with OE Wheels & tyres

Guys, few weeks after I completed the full restoration of my HT Gypsy. I had to part my other Gypsy . the one below to my friend and fellow bhpian MexXxentric.

GYPSY Unlimited! - by JeepCaptain-p1010463.jpg



The alloy wheels were also gone and the gypsy was back to normal with OE wheels and tyres.
