My god , gypsy without 4 WD? Why you could have altered the length of Propellor shaft and retained the Transfer gear box. Anyway T-Case is divorced in gypsy.

I put isuzu 1800 cc petrol engine and retained the 4 WD.

good to know so many gypsyers here. How many are really doing offroading and using the full potential of gypsy?

Dwarak Sir, with your question/concern.

I dont know about others ...But talking about me, If you think breaking 4 sets of leaf springs ( or main leaf) and breaking three rear axle bearings in 24 hours which resulted in 3 axle pop outs and then damaging 2 rear axles beyond repair ( All on different Gypsies and various occasions) can be considered as using full potential of Gypsy, then I do!

Or do you think I am expecting too much out of a Gypsy?

Looking forward to explore the Waynad terrains with you and team soon.

Shibhu,

I would call it extreme. Better switch to carbon filament blades and have peace for ever. As for axle popping, a spot weld will solve the matter. Rajachu has done it in his gypsy.

I spent quite a lot of time modifying the Gypsy I own now, but haven't been able to test it's potential ever since I relocated to HYD. The Gypsy I previously had was used extensively for 3yrs on rough terrains in Bandipur and Nagarahole forests. Have broken leaf's twice and a axle popout in the middle of the forest having to leave the vehicle under the protection of wild denizens for over a day. Burnt out the clutch completely couple of times in rainy season due to running long distances in slushy areas.
