@ LKCRUISERS,
Your Gypsy looks like she is doing training at Gym everyday & heavy on diet but, its really looking amazing with higher ground clearance & changed ride height using different suspensions.
I am sure that your have done some kind of modifications with installing Toyota 7K engine in Gypsy's engine room, so please do post some WIP i.e. Work In Progress pics also if possible.

Apologize as there was no time to take the pictures as this was a 72 hour job. Started on 14th Morning and completed to run the Taprobana 4x4 challenge on 16th Morning. No Sleep.

Only Gypsy dreams when we got some sleep

Hey Super job Superman. It would be good if you could share details of your build here for all to understand.

What interests me is the Coil spring perch points and the Toyota 7k Engine to Gypsy GB points.

Nice job.

Nice articulation. i wonder how it will perform in real world situation and offroad terrain.

IMHO, Whoever did the Coils on Gypsy, the owners were not happy with the performance

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-te...ml#post1671486 (Is Independent Front Suspension (IFS) good for offroading?)

Please have a look at this pic Sir Alec ,, the owner of this coil sprung Gypsy were extremely happy and the setup was also very reliable according to them.

I saw a coil gypsy in Ludhiana also recently. Lift kit and coils with huge tires. Looked massive.

It based on old push rod design.

Hi Sean,

This is an amazing make-over given to a Maruti Gypsy.

What about the Differential Locks? ARB or Auto-Lockers.

Please post some pics of this Gypsy in action at Taprobana 2010.

Regards,

Arka
