Jassy I think a black leather wrap around the steering will look quite nice..

Are you planning on keeping the jeep all-white, or are you going to paint a few things, like the headlight rim, towing hooks, bumper, etc black?

A black n white jeep will look class! And you must definitely get a trail flag!

White has its own class. I am sure the jeep is going to stand out in an Audi white kind of shade. Good choice of colour i must say.

Jassy, I see that you have used an after market steering wheel. What hub did you use? Is the steering column/rod the original one or did u change it?

For the trail flag, use those flexible antennas seen on rickshaws and taxis. They cost 300-400 bucks.

One question that's been on my mind since a long time: you plan to offroad with this vehicle na or is it going to be a city car?

By when will she be completely ready?

Tejas is correct - when I said trail flag, I had those flexible antennae which you see on taxi's, in mind!

Once you buy the antenna, then you can simply ask your neighborhood darzi to stitch up a flag for you..

Jassy, anxiously waiting for the pictures.

I too hope you raise the jeep a bit as it will make it look very good and better performance for off-roading.

Tejas, I have used Scorpio m-hawk's adjustable steering column/rod and for that I used Hyundai's hub coz scorpio's hub wasn't fitting..
And ya this vehicle will go offroad for sure..
I am hoping that the work gets completed by 25th of this month..

Jassy,
did you know the one of the biggest offroading events is happening in your backyard on the 25th? Coincidence? No! It's a sign... Push your mechanic to hurry it up. There are 50 jeeps from all over india participating. All the regular jeep joes you see here will be there.

Search for alfa kilo challenge and EXAMM!

It's happening in Lonavla, karjat and sawarsi (near Penn).

Edit: Jassy, with 31" tyres, you will need to put long shackles or raise the body. Otherwise the tyres will touch the tub during articulation when you offroad.

Jassy,

How much paint is required for painting your baby? And what is the cost?

Expected time of completion...

You have to come for the Alfa Kilo Challenge and All India EXAMM!
Either as a driver, or a passenger. Ofcourse, driver is preferred!

Register soon!

As you have been a part of many offroading events your opinion about raising the height of the jeep is considerable..
I will surely think over raising the suspension..
I have heard about this event ''EXAMM'' on 25th and I am really interested in joining this event as a participant but may be my Monster won't be ready by 25th.. And theres one more reason I can't come coz I am going to Mahabaleshwar on 25th..
