Default A Pure Off-Road Spec Gypsy Build | SPoA, Lockers, Bumpers etc etc.

After thinking waiting(For Thar) and Watching and observing in numerous OTR's I finally decided to Make my Gypsy as my primary Off Road Vehicle.

The reason behind this is easy to maintain, easy availability of Spares and Service back up, Reliability, Refinement, By considering all this and discussing with seniors i took this decision.

Now the list of modifications (not wish list) those possible and easily adoptable, by considering easy availability and executable by MASS,

1) M/T Tires with wider negative off set Alloys.
2)Rock Crawler Gear Set,
3)SPoA to Accommodate 31" Tires,
4)Lock rite Lockers,
5)Winch Bumper
6) Warn winch,
7)Rear Over Hang Chop(Body and Chassis)
8)Roll cage,
9) Trancefer case Protection,

My Gypsy is in Solotech motors from last ten days, Today finally they decided to Start the work,

Guys wish me for Speeedy work from all tinkers, painters.

Khan's is MPFI and your's is CARB. why don't you name it as CRAB?

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

Mods, change the thread name again..

Sir, you missed the Rock Sliders & RUF from the mod list.

After all these mods, this will be one hell of a Gypsy with all the webber power under that hood . After this is done, I am driving it in the next OTR.

Seriously, you have put in a LOT of effort in running around towards fabricating the required parts. It's not easy and my thanks to you for getting some parts fabricated for me also.

BTW, Why don't you post pictures of the work done so far?

I agree. The CRAB is a nice name for this Gypsy. So, from now on, let's call it "The CRAB"

Wow...I am already JEALOUS of the CRAB!

If you name it as CRAB, you'll have to drive it sideways always!
