WOW Allan, Youve designed a lift kit..!! Is this a body lift or a suspension lift ??
Would love to see how that turns out.. How long you reckon will it take for the lift kit to be ready..?

Hope it doesnt cause steering related issues under extreme articulation.. Im sure you will test for that too..!!

Cheers,

Jay

7 pages of sheer passion/ precision and madness

A good build up. Hooked on to this thread.

Did not understand why a AT and a brand new car being used.

All warranty ceases.

But as i said Sheer PPM and some loads and loads of $$'s

Would love to see the final product

Advanced congratulations.

Allan makes a offroader that has no Lightforce?? OMG.
Somehow the design of the front grill does not blend in with the monster. It should be more aggressive. This looks incomplete.

Wonderful job , One question the roll cage is just welded to the body panel or it goes in and finally welded to something more solid ?

SS traveller one simple DIY solution could be to buy a Silicon sealant from hardware shop and for about 200 Rs and cover the exposed wires with silicon sealant using the gun. There are various grades if you need I can ask the guy who provide aquarium supplies on what grade he use for aquarium joints.

the roll cage is taken straight to the chassis for strength,
if only to the body, then she becomes a show thingy only

But I dont think it poses much of a problem... I have gone fording in 2 feet of water in my Safari over a year ago but have never faced any electrical issues with the 4x4 electricals.
The solenoid in safari sits much higher. Infact, this solenoid is the cause that many times on MGE, the Mahindra 4x4 fails as MGE usually takes place in slush areas.

I feel general purpose silicon sealants should not be used near the engine area as they donot have high service temperature. All the sealants available in the hardware shop will have a service temp less than 100deg C. The sealants for potting should be fire retardent & have a service temperature of atleast 155deg C. Epoxys should be preffered. I think araldite might be an option.
