Oh man, a very nice thread here.

Here is my Story:
  • 1.3 MPFI Gypsy for 2.5L
Some of the major work done so far:
  • Rear Lockers: 20K
  • Rear Overhang: 10K
  • Rock Crawler T-Case: 22K
  • MRF Zigma Tyres: 14K
  • Maxxis Trepador Tyres: 28K
  • Alloys: 18K
  • BMW Seats: 10K
  • SPoA: 15K
  • CFL: 22K
  • Front Lockers: 12K (purchased but yet to be installed)
  • Bilstien Long Travel Shocks for front (10"): 8K (purchased but yet to be installed)
  • Hi-Lift Jack: 5K
  • Traction Bar (Fabrication + Painting): 3.5K
  • FWH: 3K
Minor Work:
  • Under body coating: 3K
  • Denting/Painting of wheel arches: 3K
  • Battery: 3.5K
  • Hard Top Removal/Soft Top: 2K
  • Other running expenses: ~3k/month as workshop/labor charges & other consumables for small small things over the last 1.5 years
Pending:
  • Rock Sliders
  • Roll Bar/Cage
  • Under Body Protection Cage
  • Front Bumper
  • Snorkel
  • Rear small seat
Next Year (2nd Half)
  • 33" tyres
  • 9/10J Rims
Apart from above there are costs that would come under accessories like buying of a tent, tow ropes, D-Rings etc etc..

Most costly & priceless is the time it requires for such things. Between Aug 08 - June/July 09, I was literally spending EVERY weekend at the garage for getting things done. That takes a toll on LOT's of things but at the same time it is that effort we put in which makes our 4x4's so near & dear to our hearts. It would not be the same 'attachment' if we had spent just the money & not the time

Vinod, no further expense for few months, that is if I want to stay at home.. and CL340 was priceless man. I am not very good at maths, accounts and memory (selectively) but its overall cost was close to 2 or 2.25 roughly.

@Khan- Going strong man.. that is passion.

@ Desertking: Yogesh, congratus on the new buy.. Where are the pictures man..
Thanks. Pics are on this link:

That was the funniest on-road incident in a long time.


Shahnavaz saab - you missed adding the Traction bar to your list.

Thanks DKG and Sir Alec for appreciation. It took a long 10 months to come to this stage. I started work on 5th Jan 09 and the pics is taken on "Dasshehra" sometime in End Sept 09 when I brought it home as a surprize to my parents.

Vinod/ Naren Thanks for the wishes. And one good point is my wifey likes the jeep very much though it is not my first vehicle(I own 2007-M800). We enjoyed couple of soft offroad rides together on weekends after marriage ... she was happy

After registration , My next work on Jeep would be to change the top. It is not made as per my idea actually . I want to change it and redo it.Then adding all those military specific accesories which I have alredy got. I ll fit those once the vehicle is registered.

If I add winch then it will cost a bomb but 2.25lks in total sounds good for my Jeep? What Say?

Tarkesh

The off road equipment you have is great! Only thing missing in your vehicle is A/c and p/s. I guess you didnt feel the need for them staying in cool climate areas. Way to go Vijay. Can you post the pic of your vehicle?
Hi Vinod,
Ya the tyre part i accept, only Thing always i don't know whats the problem with me the tires other than i have perform better in OTR..

A/C,And P/S, i am little bit worried about their reliability,

Still So many things to Add No Time to Enjoy all The Gadgets,

Yesterday Ordered For Warn Snatch Block 2 numbers, i don't Know when its going To Stop.
