Congrats on the Gypsy. However, we want ownership threads to start with a detailed review of the car, as well as pictures (preferred ). Please PM me once you are ready to add content to the thread.

Until then, I'm going to temporarily close this thread.

Gypsy looks great.Are there 2" spacers on the wheels?
How much did you paid for the alloy wheels?

Nice vehicle you got there sameer

Looking at the position of the tires I have a couple of questions

1) How bad do the tires foul with the body/fenders?

2) Are you using spacers? If so how wide?

Nice buy, the alloys look a tad too wide for the vehicle though, turns it into a boy racer vehicle.

So what are the exact mods that you got done at Performance Auto, apart from the small set-up in the front bumper for the fog lights? Yes tyres look too wide,a taller tyre with decent width would 've been better.

Nice looking gypsy buddy!

Was the front bush guard (with the fogs) done up at Raj's workshop?? I see the Northern Motorsports logo at the back!! (If you don't mind can you share the cost)
Further after mounting the big tyre at the back have you done something to strengthen the rear tail gate too! I believe the hinges on the rear tailgate is one of the weakest body parts/ panel and gives way sooner than later!!!

EDIT: Just saw Kandisa's post. If I am not wrong he's done a shackle lift too, but do I see the leaf spring a little flat or its just the angle!!!

Nice! Real neat! Is that what they call a "body lift" (dont know much about this stuff, just getting there). Please share info on what mods have been done. A roll cage would look good!

Dear Sameer,
A really nice looking Gypsy.
2 questions from my side:
  1. What make mirrors are those and could you share the details on getting them fitted? (As in, how many holes did you have to make and are there brackets fouling with the door?
  2. Were you able to fit those Hellas directly using the holes for the number plate or did you also have to bore extra holes?
Thanks a lot for this information.
Cheers,
Deepak
