Default force Excel 4x4 funeral vehicle

hi guys.
yesterday i was washing my freshly painted bolero.
suddenly this funeral vehicle came for its regular wash after doing its job .
this is a army version of force Excel used for testing by company.
when i asked to our local force dealer he told me that its sold on very low price compared to same funeral vehicle minus 4x4.
Quote:
because of no or very less tax .
dont remember but not more than 6L on road including the deck you see in pictires.
the company gives such test vehicles for NGOs if they use it on no profit no loss basis for general good of people.
the front axle is disconnected by dealer for better fuel consumption but drive shaft is still there.
also disc brake on front
here are some

Oh what a misapplication of a 4x4 truck!!


May be there's a specific demand by late off-roaders to be carried in a 4x4 to their last destination.

its not late.
as i said earlier it was used by company for testing so its brand new.
the people (organization) who own it neverwanted 4x4 version, they just wanted a truck but company gave them 4x4.

I think Vinod used the term "Late" in a very different context here than what you are thinking jeepster.
The same context for what the Force vechile is being used for!!

Cheers
