Default Your guess is as good as mine

Anyone want to take a guess on how much has been spent on this Jeep?

Personal opinion: Whatever the amount, the owner should recover twice the amount from the guy who did the aesthetics. I particularly like the Power "Staring" part. Staring. Yes. Laughing. More like it.

With all those additional lights, the 'staring' is going to be really powerful.

Default ?

Fail to understand why these guys use Mudgrip tyres on bling machines like these. They become almost bald on covering 40K Kms. But in all certainity, it looks like a Mayapuri Work.

The "Staring" part of it indeed is funny

The only thing worth plucking off the jeep are the tyres. Damn my eyes hurt.

Default enLIGHTment

The lights on this one actually remind me of a very enLIGHTening experience:
So am at this shop looking for jeep stuff and in my conversation somewhere mention that my jeep is a 4x4. The shop owner lights up and says "do you want 4x4 lights?" Am like :sure, I'll have a look!" So he gets me these obscene looking fog lights with a protective casing which has 4x4 written in chrome. I ask quizzically "Is this what you meant?" He's totally clueless and he's like "you don't like it? I can get you 1x1 and 2x2 lights also"

These guys apparently use 1x1, 2x2 and 4x4 to define size of the fog lights.

For the record: I didn't buy them

Cheers,
Adi

I agree. If I see something like this on the road.. I am sure I would gesture 'Seriously? Why?'

Actually the seats look pretty usable. need to be reupholstered though.
