Hello Vinod,

Those are MT tyres . they do have 16 inchers I think. And they also have some awesome ATs . But will have to check with them now.

Vinod. Spill the beans. What you planning? Please don't tell me you are going to be Jeepless. You will be incomplete without one.

Talking My $$$ Expense continue's

Well after all the money spent - I realized WOW they money did not go into the drain .

The Mini OTR on 10th January proved me all the worth and I'm going in for more. The vehicle was able to clear obstacles in 3 High and 2 High
  1. Free Wheel Hubs - INR 7000
  2. Airfilter - INR ???
  3. Service / Timing check up / Black Excess smoke check up INR 1200
Unlike every-time now i do not crib because the more you spend the more the Jeep kicks your Adreline out and the feeling of clearing a obstacles is amazing.

My 1997 single owner mm540 had done about 165000kms without any major works or breakdown.But rusting was one of the main concern and i had to shed about Rs 35000 (2002) and Rs 45000 (2005) for patch work and painting.In 2009 there was a damage of about 168000 rs for body work,painting,upholstery,new steering box,pump overhauling,army rim and tyres etc.

Rs 35000 in 2002 and 45000 in 2005 is costly for patch work and painting standards. May be you are getting it done at a hep place with a paint booth and all. 1,68,000 for body work painting, tyres and fuel pump job is expensive. Are you getting all these done in M&M dealership? Remember your engine is almost due for a major overhaul

I had crossed 2.5 lks for a 1964 model and still not satisfied so this decision

Cheers to the man who thinks his jeep is perfect May it remain so!

What did you do to your gearbox? Changed the top cover?
2.5 lakhs for a 3b with complete satisfaction is great!!
