Harneet the Gypsy looks wow!!.\

The Delhi Azad Motors (or whatever they are called) are the same as the Bangalore based Azad Body Builders, who build bus bodies (they built the Amritsar-Lahore bus in which Vajpayee travelled) They are a huge family, part of which is settled in Delhi. Harjeev, are they related to you? They share your surname

If one cant get in touch with the Delhi counterpart, one can try contacting the Bangalore head office for contact details.

Suddenly i want to buy a Gypsy now!!

This is way way too much. Even if we all all the accessories that they have installed in the vehicle the total tab shouldn't be more than 2 or 2.5L MAX!!!
Harjeev, I completly with you, infact i went to Mayapuri again today & came to know the Gypsy was with another dealer last week. They are sending it back because no one thinks that they would be able to sell it even on harf the price.

Budy thats good news that you know the (Azad Group) family. I hope you get this one on a reasonable price. This is old machine but in great shape. Good Luck for the deal. I am ready to buy any part that you dont like.

Default shackle lift

I am planning to buy 2" shackle lift kit. It costs around 48$. Approx 2160Rs. Is it worth going for? Will i get anything similar at a cheaper price in India?

Rocky Road super tough shackles

A kit with just the shackles? I doubt that in $48 you will get a lift kit. There is more to the kit than just long shackles.

However, the quality of parts, fit & finish of after market parts from US is miles ahead of what you would get fabricated here locally, so I would suggest that you can go in for the long shackles.

Khan bhai it is just 2" long shackles @ 48$(Including transportation to US address). It has nothing extra other than 2" long shackles (4 pc's).

Hey krishnathanthri,

I am sure you must have gone through the below link while trying to decide what's the best lift for you. While there, check out the articulation chart. Rocky Road Outfitters

I am sure the Rocky Road are the best in US. Wish you luck for your 2" long shackles. Dont forget to share the pics when ever you install them.

Cheers

No no Harmeet, im not interested in buying this particular Gypsy. Id rather get one and make it the way i want. Anyways you know when you know somebody via family, it gets more difficult to bargain for the price

Hey v-16, I misunderstood. I completely agree that its hard to Negotiate deals when you know them via family. Good luck for the Gypsy.

Hey Shibu, Me & my friends need a few things for our Gypsy's. We were thinking for the visiting Thailand to bring some stuff along. I came to know the shipping is too high from Thailand & its easy to bring things along due to low airfares. Lets see what happens, things are still being planed.

Desmosedici, Yes that hardtop is very popular in Thailand and other Fareast countries. You dont really need to fabricate it. Just go with harneet and friends pick one from Thailand bring it back and install it on your Gypsy. Its a bolt on fitment. But not sure whether its a metal or fiberglass.
