the only thing that worries me is the quality of the interiors which is kind of crude and not pleasing enough.

i would like to go for complete floor and underbody rubberised coating of 3M or Wurth to give it a longer life and making it rustproof and damping the sound.

come on Xinger lets see more of your creations on thar.

@allana, i think the side step and the wheels will be provided as standard to keep the cost of the vehicle to the bare minimum, so that people like me can afford it and build on it!

anyway looks like you had a nice weekend last and came home late night

Everyone is posting PS jobs of 31" + tyres on the Thar. Fine. But, how do you do a lift job on the Thar to accommodate these tyres without affecting articulation? How is the IFS lifted? With leaf springs, it's as easy as increasing the height of shackles, re-cambering the leaves or adding more.

So in the Thar how would you do it? Body lift only?

Lifting IFS vehicles is not a big deal. Somebody has to make it for your vehicle. For example, lift kits of GV is available from many international shops.

Hmmm. So ideally Mahindra should make them and get them as dealer fitment option or less people will get into warrantee issues.

With the stock setup, IFS can be lifted up a bit by adjusting the torsion bars. But this is not advisable since it will affect the vehicle handling (and will cause alignment/additional-wear-tear issues).

Otherwise, as Samurai has mentioned, we can replace the stock with after-market setup.

So, how easy or difficult is it to make these after market kits? Will the local guy be able to fabricate it or will it require specialized tooling?

Vinod, Spike, Behram... please add in your comments.

Wow, but I guess such designs would not make it to the final product due to.

1) ARAI passed Fuel effeciency with these type of tyres.
2) The Front Bull guard would be deadly for pedestran safety.
