Is 4 year off road/ on road, business /non-business day without any loop holes warranty also included in this. If not, then " Pagal Kutte ne Nahi Kata"

After all BD Sir will give a vehicle in which you'll be able to change chassis/ engine/brake and every other system under warranty

Well you yourself figured the reason out, why i put the price tag.

The one with warranty thing, you wont be even able to tighten a single nut without breaking the warranty or using a scanner. For that i have my Swift!

It's just a jeep thing! buwahahaha

As long as you do the 2km on pure tarmac home-to-office run every day and nothing else...

Some more work happened over the last few weeks, Diesel_Maniac helped me procure the original connecting rod bearings and the new type radiator hoses. Raju did a good job in fixing them up and cleaned the oil pump as well as set the distributor. Now the engine has become one step more silent and is barely audible at idle.

Tow bar which Viji made also have been fitted, just in case

The jeep drives well and i also feel at peace with DwArF. Engine temp has never crossed 60 deg mark, but then again temperature in BLR also has come down. So will have to wait for some proper hot weather testing.

So finally DwArF is ready for some action and how about FE testing lol. Will update some pictures with tow bar and all soon.

Jaggu,

You can get a good compressor pump and the coiled hose of 4 mts for about AED 500.00 (Rs. 6,000.00). Bushmaster is a good brand you can count on.

Best Regards & Drive/Ride Safe

Ram

Thanks Ram, i have heard the same and seen one specimen in action and i was impressed. But i think eventually a tyre upgrade is the right choice for the jeep, esp with the city and rain driving involved in a place like BLR.

Talking The daaaaayers!

So i decided to start my experiment with tyres. Swastik Viji offered me the Trepadors on Gypsy rims, and i couldn't say no. Have got them fitted yesterday and the difference is apparent. CJ3B suddenly has started to handle better lol. Braking also has tremendously improved. Somehow i feel the overall gearing is also spot on now.

I didn't get time to check air pressure, which i will do today and finally having deposited the NDMS in my parking, will be able to comment further on the ride.

Only gripe i can't do full cuts with steering, at the very extreme end of the turn the front inner part fouls with the spring. Since this is on loan tyres being extra careful with this.

So DwArF on new shoes and tow bar installed
Got Jeep! CJ3B Hurricane.-img_2409.jpg

And this is Max who has become very possesive about DwArF these days.

DwArF looks superb! Only to be upstaged by Max. Is that Tow Bar a permanent fixture?

Am keeping it as a permanent fixture, but can be removed if you have patience to remove 4 bolts

Jaggu,
A very neat 3B. Tyres look good but I feel 16" would contribute those precious inches required in GC which can be very useful for off roading.

I want to do some proper off road tests now, on road A+. Ask Khan and how CJ3B stops now!

As far as i know this tyre, it won't disappoint on OTR's. I have seen em and on CJ3B they should do just fine.
