Same prices prevail in hosur too. PS - If so expensive, then the amaron 'harvester' still rules..!! Just for its build quality. Should be just a few 100 +/-...
opps Santhosh, Wrong story here... My very first battery was a non-branded local make and I've paid around Rs.4000 for it.

I have paid only Rs.3000 for my first Powerzone 90amps a year back. This battery was damaged after 12months with the alternator blade as my previous mechanic one day removed battery clamp for some work and forgot to reinstall it. So I recently (a week's back or two) procured one for the Classic and one for the FJ62(both 90amps). Both costed me Rs.3400/- each after exchanging the older faulty batteries for Rs. 700 respectively. Hence the actual battery cost paid was Rs.3400+Rs.700 = Rs. 4,100(including tax) and comes with 12 months warranty.

So technically one gets 1 year more warranty by paying 1xxx bucks more for Harvest compared to Powerzone. Hmm i think i will first check Harvest.

My bad, I stand corrected. Good to know some battery does come for 4~, makes amaron look 20% expensive...!!

I was also told loooong time back that warranty issues drive battery cost crazy - looks like we have a perfect example.

Work is progressing slowly, front patch work on driver side floor is done.

The rear axle is in and so has the brake overhaul completed. I have asked him to open the diff cover and check the front diff also. Rear diff has been painted and so would be the front.

All the springs has been re-cambered. Apart from one shock all are shot, super tight with minimal action. Planning to go for Qualis shocks since they provide good travel and comfort?? What say??

Gear box was being assembled but then we noticed a hair line crack on transfer case. Decided to work on this since it can become an issue later on, so a minor set back.

More over the top gear is still being awaited.

The one which came from the shop was a refurbished one which was promptly returned. From the looks of it another 2 weeks it will take.

Talking of shocks, I also need to change mine (though that stage is still sometime away), but I don't think Qualis shocks would be available around here as there are very very few Qualis here in the first place. So, what else can be suitable for a CJ3B for good travel and comfort? Will the likes of Innova or Scorpio shocks do?

You can try Bolero shocks, they should be available.

Shocks : I think Samu is referring to gabriel ones, the bolero SLX's (ask swastik) are gabriel and air filled IIRC

Clutch : check with experts if you can fix the latest diaphram type on a hurricane. You have the old coil spring type. Will improve power delivery a LOT.

Yes, the Munroe one. Prithvi was talking about it, last time I met him. He has that on his Gypsy.

I am already in touch with Viji, need to take a reading of the travel of those shocks. The ones that were in DwArF had 7" plus (total travel), Viji said the SLX one is 6.5"?? got me confused.

Clutch right now am not touching since am very happy with it. No power loss and all with this petrol engine, and believe it or not its softer than my Swift DDiS's.

I thought coil spring are the new type?? coming in most of the new cars?

Thank you Fazal saab, will check on this. Any idea about the travel?

@All: if you have access to the travel info of shocks, please share would be great.

@Spike: Any suggestions keeping in mind the 1.2 ton weight and short chassis in mind?

Like to go for ones with decent articulation and ride. Gas or not.

EDIT: Santhosh i have seen the shocks but in the picture you linked, are they like completely extended?

6.45", 6.5", 6.89", 7.44", 7.55", 7.81", 7.87", 8.03", 8.25" (total stroke), are some of the options available with different rates. Some may not be available now (from older models). Moreover, most of the time you will be traveling D+1, so payload is not a matter of concern IMO.
