It has everything under the skin what most of the jeepers dreaming about. Great build.

But personally I feel it look like a street car rather than a true off roader.

Default More Pictures

@sreejeshmp : Rohan is basically a designer and he wanted to make a Designer JEEP.Yes it is more like a JEEP intended for regular use as this is the only JEEP he has and has to be driven everyday. So he wanted the comforts of a car in the JEEP, later he might build a hard core off-roader..

@ jeepcaptain: He wishes to do only mild off-roading as this is a special JEEP that he would like to keep it for ever. If taken off-roading the body and chassis will become out - of shape and never can you bring it back to original fit, finish and shape. For him 'A scratch in the JEEP is like a wound in the heart'

@prm cochin: He wanted to do a fully new dashboard but due to time constraints he used this dash slightly modified.

More detailed Pictures.

@Rahultomahawk and Jeepster:

The LED lights are from Mahindra customized vehicles like Bolero Commando, Stinger etc. The black light pods are made.

Thanks

Dear all - congratulations to Rohan George for his very genuine effort to build this vehicle. If I was in his place, I would also use it very carefully, after all the effort, time, money and passion that has gone into making it. It deserves a better name. Any ideas?

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Mr. Behram said it deserves a 'better' name!

i think many people on this thread has already commented on naming the JEEP with a better name rather than calling it a ROADDOG!

whats wrong in this photo?

the rear left wheel is not touching the ground! any reasons?

because there is no load on chassis.
