Looks like the 2nd blue jeep with 2 side entry points, and 1 rear entry. I think it is the 650DP but with a DI engine. If it is from a govt auction, and with decent mechanicals, 35-45K is the max, Sabareesh from Tbhp got a similar conditioned CJ500D from mumbai for 35K.

Edit - not the 2nd blue (with round fenders) but the 1st pic (a commander i think) with flat fenders.

Default 4WD Conversion

Hi Doc,

ZACS is right this is a Commander 650DI.

To convert this to 4WD.

1) MM540 Front Diff Assy (51"Track) with 4.27:1 Diff-Ratio (Please check Rear Axle)

2) Rear Axle. Check the diff-ratio. Use the existing Rear Axle if
a) Diff Pumpkin is centre
b) Diff Pumpkin is off-set right (from Rear)

3) Gearbox & T-Case (KMT90+T18) you will need a bell housing if the existing 2wd setup is 3 Speed.

4) Front Prop Shaft.

5) Rear Prop Shaft.

6) 4WD Cross member with V-Fork for Spike Arrestor/Spike Arrestor/Skid plate & Cross Member spacer if applicable.

7) Under the Chassis Bump-Stops for Front Axle & Rear Axle.

Regards,

Arka

A long wheel base, is no fun even if converted to a 4x4.

If you are looking at true off-roading , then this is not the jeep.

Just my suggestion, its your call at the end.

Hi Pavan,

Don't you think a LWB is more fun, because its more challenging to drive on OTR?

Please do tell us more about "TRUE Off-Roading"

Don't you think this is the Super-Deluxe CJ3B

Regards,

Arka

I have seen some excellent offroaders using Commander Jeeps in really tough terrain. In fact, Sibi Paul drove a Commander in last week's OTR at Somvarpet, that was a tough terrain. He practically flew through all the SS.

A Jeep is a Jeep, will always remain a jeep. No matter short or long, on road off the road.. It is definitely bone rattling FUN.

Isnt it Arka?

I was of the same opinion, though this changed when I saw Sudarshans Land Rover (LWB) perform in last 2 OTRS all my doubts laid to rest, it was a effortless machine, Fun to Drive and Watch as well. I understand their is a difference between Mahindra and LR but the comparison is for LWB and if proper mods are done this would be a fun to drive jeep in any terrain for Jungle Safari or for that matter a challenging OTR.

Plus you have an added advantage of carrying more and more equipments and water .

in the international scene more & more people (offroaders) are going for lwb's .(ex. jeep jk)
most custom extreme hard core offroading vehicles are in lwb range.
