Hi Tejas,
I am a budding offroader who has a keen eye on your project.
The 'CAVITY' looks purpose built and has a lot of mods as a result of 'distilled' experience.
I have seen the inverted V shaped bar on the front bumpers of many offroaders outside India and now on yours.
Can you tell me what is the purpose?
Thanks.

It's known as a stinger bumper.

- helps in preventing the vehicle from toppling over back over front
- in case of a back over front topple, protects the radiator from damage as the tip acts as pivot
- some stinger bumpers can be used as a rock slider
- helps determine the approach angle if the driver is not too sure
- and good to lean on while working on the engine

Every time i look at - it becomes more and more drool worthy! Please put up the completed pics once you are done.

The Hard top mod on it is by far the best i have seen on a MM.

Now that's what we call a dream Jeep.

I had goose bumps looking at this, full marks to your imagination and Allan' execution, diesel counterpart of Spidey, The "Cavity".

The anticipation of your thread has died down now

I see you have a lot of power consuming accessories in your cavity, do you have a spare battery or the same battery or is it 24 V battery?

WIP: fine tuning of suspension, raising the seat height a bit, final color and lambi work, dash, interiors, fixing rattles, etc.

A lot of work still left.

Wait for the thread to see the phoenix rise and what all has gone into making her what she is today.

No need for spare battery, the regular one is just fine.
