I think you have reduced the wheel base as well. More pics are welcome!
Vinod Nookla, Spark is giving a hummer look for his gypsy. It's great looking machine.

Burnt out the clutch completely couple of times in rainy season due to running long distances in slushy areas.
Pardus,

Get in touch with hyderabad jeepers to join them on OTR

So we are REALLY seeing an increase in number of people going through the whole 9 yards to buy a NEW GYPSY.

PS: Which tyres are those?

Dear Sharath,
Thank you very much for your wishes.
I called my sales advisor almost everyday reminding him that i need front facing seats and to mention this while ordering my Gypsy.
Sadly, it isn't. It came with those 2 benches (Mom calls these prisoner's seats )
Planning to change them to something similar to what Vijay has in his Gypsy. Will contact him and get more details.

Dear Beejay and Vinod,
Thank you so much for your replies. Very kind of you.
Had been drooling at your jeeps for long!
@Vinod: I would love to do it, but seeing absolutely no insulation on the top, am scared that it might turn into an oven in summer if painted black.

Dear Khan,
Thank you very much for your wishes.
Yes sir, i'll soon write my initial ownership report.
My godtch! What eyes! Yes sir, they are BFGs. I did read about Shakir, Samurai, Dwarak Sir and several others' comments on Yokohama and about they performing better on & off road. Somehow, i was bowled over by its looks and also looking at its bolder foot print, i hope it shall do well.

Cheers Everybody,
Deepak

Dear Annu,
Thank you very much for your wishes.
You are damn right about these sleepless nights. Since the king wasn't registered, i wasn't driving it much (It has been registered today).
Also, since i park the king on the street, i get up every second hour and peep from the window if he is doing ok or not . Sad to know about your old gypsy, but you are anyway getting an army disposal and that would be even more special. I wish you all the best with its restoration.

Thanks a lot Sankar. I have spent days deciding on which color and finally decided on Red. Am glad it looks well and everybody have liked it. Would have to thank Vaibhav(Gotzuk), Shyamm and Amar for posting pictures of their Gypsies. It helped a lot to decide on the color.

Cheers,
Deepak

Congrats for the new ride, it indeed looks awesome, I wish i would have opted for buying a new one. You made a good decision.

Just one question though, How much time it took to arrive after intial booking?
