guys dont go by the shiny paint work on that jeep, for us whats beneath that glossy and shiny paintwork matters and the news as always is bad workmanship on the mechanical working parts of the jeep!

mayapuri scrap and junk dealers are trying to make a quick buck by selling that shiny and glossy jeep and not by selling scraped jeeps!

"beware"..as the wiseman said!
I was taken aback by the paint and number etc on the front fender being in perfect condition. Unless the army had this wrapped in shrinkwrap for 4 years I doubt they would dispose of a vehicle in such good condition.

Anyhow time to put the topic back on track.

Great looking Jeep, I saw one locally similar to this, he had put two large army truck spotlights on the front and had them sprayed that sandy colour. Looked very neat. Also this colour does not look as dirty as the dark greens when it gets dusty.

Thanks in advance

Look forward to that.

Also it has Free Wheeling Hubs installed which were not standard issue on post 2002 vehicles. I am guessing that Harjeev will tell us that this is actually a 2001 model fitted with new fenders etc and resprayed.

I cant find the pics of it to verify the number.

That is exactly what I'm thinking after reading Harjeev's last post.

I also feel the same way. Harjeev is closely following this restoration I guess. He had sent me some pics of this accidental Jeep but I am not getting it now. Anyways let him reveal this.

First of all my sincere apologies to Shibu for hijacking his thread!!!

And secondly many have got it right!!! Here is the link to the pictures I posted on another thread sometime back!!!

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-ve...ml#post1476431

The sand color vehicle is actually the same 2005 accidental vehicle that was being doneup in mayapuri!!!

And hold your breath. It was sold for 2.75 L without tyres and registration!!!

And the best part is that they changed the gearbox and gave the KMT 90 4 speed instead of 5 speed gearbox!!!

You should be able to see the vehicle somewhere in eastern india in a little while ;-)))

Dear Friends,

Please be aware of the dangers of these Jeeps. Until a few months DO NOT DRIVE FAST. My 2004 had a Steering linkage come loose - I wanted to turn Left and the Vehicle went Straight. Ensure that the Brakes, Ball Joints, Steering linkages are in Safe condition. The sellers hold no liability - They just paint and finish these vehicles - Please understand that we the users are liable for any lives lost on the roads. Imagine the horrors unleashed in public if one of these MM550's were to lose control because of failures.

Sateesh, my friend many people who frequent these forums or jeepthrills may buy a jeep from Mayapuri, but they will never get it done up there. Enough horror stories about jeeps that are actually finished there. They look great like your's but the work is suspect and most critical parts used are purely refurbished repaired parts rather than new OE/quality parts.

+100 to that. Thank god nothing happened to you. If you use 100% genuine parts there is no reason for a Jeep to be unreliable. As i mentioned elsewhere in this forum, there are two ways you can maintain a Jeep, the Jugard (Makeshift) way and genuine way. Opt for second, and he will never let you down, off/on the road.

Sure Friends,

I will certainly not compromise on the Safety on my Jeep.
I agree not to take the Jugaad way - I am using it only after thorough checks from MM Workshop at Hyderabad. Thanks for all your inputs.
