Hey guys i have driven the jeep for some 50 odd km and the engine runs like a charm but when i hit above 60 i find a weird slight wobble at the steering wheel once i reduce speed its fine .
I plan on getting the Wheel balancing done and then wheel alignment . The rims before they were painted was "rim thru" was done,

is there anything im missing out on?

Also all patta bushes have been changed and redone

I feel the Wheel balancing and wheel alignment should solve the issue.

Update....After the MGE i was very disapointed with the jeep's air filter location , after one small puddle splash the air filter took in a lot of water and knocked the jeep off for almost a hour. This made me decide on getting a snorkel made. And decided to get it done with all local manufactured parts. With trial and error we got this done it was supposed to be a one pice pipe but that dint work out.....May get another one made later
This still is a WIP

Thanks Viji for the Snorkel head / design.
Thanks Sanjay for all the help with the pipes and the bending

@ David,
Its nice to see that your jeep got fitted with a snorkel. The snorkel setup is just looking awesome & its really a joy to see many jeeps in Mumbai getting fitted with snorkel.
Around a month back, I have spotted your jeep in Borivali, but can't been able to see it properly as I am on a bike with my friend. The color of your jeep is just awesome & painter has done very well job & your jeep seems to be in a very well maintained & mechanically balanced condition.
Please post some more pics of this WIP Snorkel Fitting here.

HI David , snorkel job looks neat and adds more character to your 550.IS the snorkel head made by SAFARI snorkel. Can you tell me the colour code or name , this colour is in the list of colours im gonna choose from for my Jonga, looks great on your 550
