Default Rear Over Hang

Hi SwastikViji,

You Gypsy looks good with the SPOA & RUF.

I would suggest you don't cut the rear over hang, you vehicle looks unique and purposeful, with the SPOA, Maxxis Tyres and the Soft-Top.

Regards,

Arka

Thanks Arka, i am still not decided to chop the body, Reason behind this, My Sons ATV sits perfectly in the body, until i found some good trailer to take this ATV to Trials i will keep this pending.

And we did some good load testing also. One thing i have to say, finish is really good compared to the usual stuff we manage to get or fabricate. I think you have done a great job Viji.

Thats a real good plate, it is a mix of both Plate and the Pipe/bar design. I always felt a plate is better than the pipe as all the muck gets to the transfer case and the plate type protects in both rock damage and also mud / small stones. In this design even in slush / muck very little is going to get through till the transfer case.

One more crazy fellow in happening. Good luck to you, but there are very few in the market for sale and if you are lucky enough you get one.
