Jassy, enough on road snaps. Time to get her dirty. This weekend we will see you at Lonavla for an off the road trip.

The Jeep looks excellent. Especially with the current set of alloys. Very well executed job. Would it be possible to share the cost of the new alloys. What brand are those and are they 15" ?

Enjoy the ride.




Cheers

Done with the suspension work and removed the extra plates from the leafspring and added new bigger shock-absorbers for smoother ride but did't add the bigger shackles because I want to see the handling without shackles and later I'll add and then compare the ride quality..

Wow! what a journey this thread is. Kudos on the Jeep Jassi.

I am conceptualizing a MM550 for wildlife photography and need to factor in doors - animals are very sensitive to the human form - so that I do not scare them.

Query: Do you have plan on doors for your Monster? Like this for example. Or are you planning on keeping the top the way it is?

Jassy can you give some details on what exactly has been done to lift the vehicle? Have any changes been made to the steering components after fitting the extended/longer shackles? And if possible kindly post some close up photos of your steering set-up.

Sorry for going off topic, but just a small suggestion, if you plan to do wildlife photography kindly go for a petrol vehicle. The noise and sound of the 550 will be good enough to scare the animals!

Continuing OT. Point taken Kandisa, however, intent is to use the Jeep as a *hide*, permitting me to wait and watch. So there may be some disruption while manoeuvring into posiiton, once placed, it would offer an excellent vantage point. That said, it is true that national parks only allow petrol vehicles, so i am restricted on that front.

Also, while mm550 stock vehicle does come with doors, I am keen on soft doors, so i can make access holes for lens access, something like this perhaps

Thanx..
I'll be removing the soft top this week.. But for the next monsoon when I'll make the hood I'll also get the doors made like CJ7's..

I Didnt install the shackles infact I removed extra PATAs to smoothen the ride and little leaf springs bending.. As I have scorpio's steering unit on my Jeep so I didnt face any issues after suspension's work..

Man you won't believe today when we were driving this Jeep in Juhu and when we reached near Amitabh Bachchan's Banglow we saw him on the balcony. My Uncle knows him and he was with us in the Jeep.. Amitabh Bachchan waved his hand seeing my Uncle and was also staring at My Jeep.. Even he liked it.. Trust me It was a Great feeling..
