You can use regular air, only thing nitrogen content will be reduced. IIRC air is 78% nitrogen

Thanks for clarifying Jaggu! I had read in some of the other threads, where there was discussion on nitrogen gas vs. normal air, that some of the owners had trouble finding nitrogen-filling stations after they had suffered a puncture on highways. That's why I wanted to know if it would make any difference really? IIRC nitrogen gas does not expand or contract unlike normal air.

FRONT FACING REAR SEAT:
Myself and David, decided to put front facing rear seats on both Jeep. We used same stock seats. Fabricator who have done this work over charged us and he didn't do finished work . So in the pic below David is doing grinding work himself.

David, the fabricator, Buddy will you also make a rock slider for me too
Seriously guys, this is really informative. Sanjay and David, could you explaln how you got the rear seat made into front facing seats. I need to get this done asap too and have two rear long seats waiting for the job. I would appreciate it if you could share the cost of the set modification as well as the rock sliders. I need to get both of them and maybe i could use your guy. Thanks in anticipation.

Hi Sanjay,

I have acquired my MM 550 XDP last week and would like to follow your foot steps. I would like to know the details about the below tires that you had tried once on your jeep.

Thanks bro. Please keep me posted if you hear from the Dealer.

BTW, Your 550 is turning out to be a mean machine. I am loving the transformation.

Very true JeepCaptain - I am loving the way he is keeping it real steady and simple. In fact, I will use lot of his work while working on my MM 550 XDP.

Design 1 and 2.
In 2nd pics, I am using my existing brackets frame. So no need to fabricate new mount plate for tyre.

The swing arm tyre carrier is looking great! Is it already done? Which are the mounting points? Some more detailed pics please. I too was looking for such an idea for my 540.
