^^ Dwaraka, time and again stock Soft roaders have failed at NIOC and recently they were thinking or they have put a ban on Soft roaders in NIOC for their lack of coping up with M&ms. Therefore would need to do few little things to enhance the performance and till then go at SUV friendly trails like Manesar and the new one, but rest assured they won't leave me behind.. Right fellow members of NIOC?

I had really pushed the GV for real offroading before I understood the potential for body damage.

Mud tyres (trepadors)
Lift-kit : Suzuki Grand Vitara lift
Skid plates
Rock Sliders: Rock sliders for Tracker and Sidekick
Bumper removed

This should do the trick.

Congrats Yogesh, you'll start off using it as a sedan I suppose. Because it can feel like one.

However, don't take it offroad before the necessary mods, especially skid plates and AT/MT tyres. Find out how easy it is to remove and put back the bumper. It can break easily. Get the skid plates done by the guy who made it for Sudev, they are lot better than the design I made for myself.
