Man, your Gypsy looks cool. If possible please try and change the color of the roll cage to either white or black; red does not do any justice to the overall look of the gypsy.

My open question:
I thought this sort of Snorkel upgrade would help driving trough waters easier preventing water from entering the air intake without any risk of engine failure...





If I am correct, then why this?





Also I request all of you to help me understand SPOA: what is it? and the pros and cons of having it on your vehicle or not having it. From the pictures here I can see only that it increases the GC of the Gypsy. If there is more to it I would like to know. (If this is already explained or has been discussed on the forums before Please guide me to the relevant one.)

Regards
Jeet.

Please Post some offroad Pics with articulation.
Please help me find the biggest size possible. Wanted tractor tires like I saw on a MM550/540 on this forum.

After SPOA added spacers to leaf spring 5"
31 size federal MT tires
Wheel Spacers
KYOWA custom painted alloys (not in the picture)

After the whole lift process the driveshaft came off two times so its back to the garage tomorrow and the handling is become terrible and brakes are pulling on one side(elongated brake line).

The last picture is to show the height difference in comparison with a BMW X6.

Getting rid of the 5 inch spacers. And sticking with the SPOA. Also braking is become very bad and if u brake hard it skids on one side.

Also it was impounded by the cops...

As of now new rims are on. Custom painted.

Hey Indra,
Gypsy looks killer!
Are these pictures with the spacers or without?
If without, what offset alloys are these 8J or 10J?
Cheers,
Deepak

Exhaust i agree its against the law , but its weird that your gypsy was impounded for increased height & large tyres . HOw is that illegal ? Or maybe they impounded it for some mamul.

And BTW your gypsy looks killer , yeah get rid of the 5" spacers . How much did you pay for the 10j alloys?

Indra,

Honestly, your gypsy looks monsterous. What is the idea behind doing up, becoming a killer offroader?

Good luck.
