lets not devalue the workmanship of Prabhu, by calling it a Rubicon Clone!

the front and the rear of this vehicle dont match to call it a "mein bhi rubicon".

i have see better looking 540/550 restored by fellow forum members.

Fazal himself has transformed some jeeps into beautiful end results, which dont try to compete with wranglers, but have their own presence.

Please dont get my comments in a negetive way, no doubt the hard labor and workmanship are praise worthy, but not the end result of trying to make it look like a rubicon!

A very good attempt at the design and workmanship!

prmd_cochin,
Nothing here is imported it is 100% locally hand crafted.

I have a few questions:

1. In the begining of the thread there was a point about shortening the chasis, can you please specify what is the new chasis size now?

2. What changes have been made to the drivetrain, engine, gearbox, differential etc?

3. Are you planning a hardtop or a softtop for the jeep?

The details of the project can be found at [COLOR=#000000][FONT=Tahoma]http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...onversion.html (Jeep Wrangler JK (Automatic) *Conversion*) [/FONT][/COLOR]

rockcrawler,
The entire project took just above two months and the answers to your three questions can be answered by Prabhu (number on this thread) as it his Jeep.

Parm,
Seeing you after a long time brother. Also thanks fr your appreciation of my works.
It is understandable that your intent is not to demean the work done on this Jeep, but when I did my Jeeps I wanted the original Mahindra character to be there with my signature.

This one is very different in concept from mine.

Regards,

Don't know how I missed this thread.

I had seen the vehicle during WIP a few times and I have to say that its a very thought out project right from planning/design to execution.

As already stated previously, a big emphasis has been made on using locally available OEM parts so that over all cost is within check and replacement is not cumbersome as well. One example of this is that the Head Light is from local car. IIRC one radiator grill was rejected because the headlight hole was bigger than the locally available parts. Such is the attention to detail.

Through my discussions with Prabhu, Suren , Ravvs, Nazim & Arun have come to understand that the body , suspension and chassis are being made sure that they don't fail even if a more powerful drivetrain is plonked into the vehicle.

All the best to Prabhu & Team in this endeavour!

Had seen this in the Auto Expo. Saw it again at the work shop.
Its a lovely looking jeep.

Though the pictures are very good, they don't do it justice. Its looks fabulous in person.

This wrangler (Made in India) is good no doubt, but Catch Kumar you have a wonderful jeep as it is. You can wish one wrangler like this to add on to the stable but your Willys is no less than an icon.
