Wow, that is an exhaustive list you have there, rear bumpers you mean the ones which hold the tyre, jerry can and some more baskets?
I am sure you have the designs ready for the bull bar and the rear bumpers..
-Bush cutters looking for the motor operated ones?
-How many passengers will you baby haul, with all these stuffs inside?

Yes by rear Bumpers i mean that. Bush cutters are wires which run from the front bumper to the roof rack on top so that when one is driving through jungles small branches are pushed out of the way and wont damage the windshield of the car.
The car can carry 4 pax with the equipment.

Hmm.. that kind of bush cutters !!! I thought the agricultural tool,I was just wondering why do you need that machine. The color is a really suttle, very nice - but the chrome bumper is not suitable - My thoughts. You are planning for the bullbar, that passes under the bumper to bolt on?

Thanks Ricky,
The decision to buy the 70 series Landcruiser was taken because of Mandeep aka Renege .
He told me the advantages of car. The car had all the bells and whistles like the 4x4 system , rear diff lock, disk brakes on all wheels, sunroof ,A/c, central locking, comfortable seats and large boot to carry the camping equipment.
We got the car and even after doing all the modifications it will cost less than Base model 80 series .
The car was purchased as it was to be designed and modded for expedition purposes, Jungle trails and not to be used in extreme OTR's .For that Mandeep is kind enough to make a Jeep for me.Its a mm440 petrol 1.8 Izuzu engine same like Soumen aka Kandisa Jeep.
Many more things from Ironman to come waiting for Zac's next shipment.

Did you get your suspension for the Pajero from Zac?

Wow you sure got plans Recently I came across a MM550 with a factory fitted ISZ 1800 Petrol !!! They only made them on experimental basis I am told. The car has done some 8000 kms !! The owner had fitted it out with an Isuzu 4x4 as well, quite a hoot to drive I am told.

Not that I am buying it, but was tempted nonetheless.

Been in touch with Zac, trying to figure out with a friend in Bangalore for the payment details etc.



Cheers

No worries Sir. Try installing a couple of chainsaws mounted sideways to clear the bush. I am sure Mandeep can build something like that. I had the privilege of riding your car before the transformation and I must admit its probably the best transformation I have seen in this country. Would love to see it when you are in Delhi.

All the best for taking it places....cheers
