with the winch, winch bumper and snorkel for amphibious character, CRAB is most suitable name eh?

Mods, change the thread name again..
I second this opinion, CRAB is a cool name to have.....

Vijay,
Something to look forward on the forum ('The evolution of the CRAB').
Kahn Sultans Gypsy too will be a good refernce point for your off-raoder build, since both live in the same city.
All the best.

Fazal sir, Khans Gypsy is not only reference, its inspiration behind my project, i am incorporating all tried and tested things by khan in my CRAB, and all technical guidance is from him only, just i am executing the project.

He buys one Gypsy after his marriage and his son will restore it, Sha send him a ARB Locker for his Tractor.

When you guys are coming back, Prithvi gives official naming ceremony party of CRAB.

Default Locker Doubt?

Very Interesting Project.Best of luck with it.
Could you please elaborate more on the lockers.From my understanding, what I see from the pictures as being installed is lockright 1530 which comes with side gears.

But I also see a pack showing 1510 LR
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/attach...psy-spoa17.jpg
Hence the Confusion. Are you using both by the way.

Regards,
Bishan
