Pramod
Hey Pramod, This world is too small isnt it?
You know why? read below!!

Sree is your childhood friend. I am his Gypsy friend so as Sandeep.

Sandeep converted his Gypsy keeping my white Gypsy (ex-Gypsy) in mind. Now you know why does it resembles Sreejiths and (my ex- )Gypsy)

Then Sree bought my Gypsy and when you saw Sandeeps Gypsy you were thinking its Sreejiths Gypsy and now we all meet in teambhp and got to know the real stories ! Strange but true!

what more can I say.

Cheers to Trivandrum 4x4 club aka Team 4x4 Extreme.

Thanks for putting up your club pics Midhun, Sandeep, Tharakan and team

Let the 4x4 epidemic spreads

Default Gypsy Unlimited -Phase 2

Thanks Tharakan for the pics. Since you have three Gypsies and you do lot of offroading. I suggest you should start a separate thread for yourself.

Friends,
Its been a long time since I updated about my Gypsy unlimited. I believe Gypsy is a machine with

Unlimited
1) capablity
2) Possibility (ies) in terms of customization and looks are concerned.
3) Identity

The Gypsy is one of the very few automobiles in the world which the owner himself can customize the way he wants with minimum tools and effort.

It took to six months to sort out all the teething issues and make it a stable and reliable gypsy.

Since my soft top white Gypsy was gone I badly wanted a soft top Gypsy and i had to replace the tyres aswell.

So here is my Gypsy unlimited -Phase-2

Mods planned in this phase

1) To have a custom softop only for the cabin with a small extension backwards for a small bench to have some covered storage area.
2) Replace tyres
3) Install a Lift kit
4) Add a Brake Booster

5) Install Free Wheeling Hub Locks

I decided to have a soft top similar to my old white Gypsy and as a first step and I got the hard top and rear forward facing seat removed.

Check out the pics

Shibu,

Seems like we have the very same things in mind. I am planning to do the very same modz on my black gypsy. Why should we scatter all the gypsy threads? I think, we will do well as a group. Why spoil the fun by starting a new one?

Hi dude, thanks for your comments. you know onething, actually my gypsy's top was just white but the same design when i bought it. just changed the colour as i didn't like white. doesn't mean that i copied someone's and you know, if i have to explain why should i worry. after all it's mine. And in future if someone purposefully copied my vehicles i would be proud.

Hijacked a thread?? tbhp is open to all members. anyone can post any reply. but does it offend someone? sorry if that happened.

keep going. afterall its all these vehicles that makes us live.
