Hey,

The gypsy is coming out really well. Have you thought about making the cabin water proof(since you will be parking it in the open). IRC it includes plugging drains at the base of the wind shield.

Just curious, where are you rebuilding your jeep and are you getting it painted?

You should go in for a fiberglass hardtop . It does not weigh too much . There are multiple options available within Noida itself for the same. Let me know if you need any help with the same.

Thanks.
I prefer fiber cabin since its lighter, less weight on top and less weight added to the vehicle. Nope i dont have any bluprints and yes there are people who have done FRP job. Including chopping the extra height of stock top and gluing it back.

It looks very much like the sound control knob for a hyundai 2.1 speaker system. Has he borrowed it for audio controls or what is it?
Its a SpaceNavigator to control the CarPC installed in his car.

Guys i need urgent advice on tyres:

Choice in order of preference:
1. BF Goodrich T/A KO (Is it a hard tyre? noisy on road?)
2. MRF Wanderer
3. MRF ZVTS
4. Yokohama Geolander (got to know its a very soft tyre and prone to puncture)

Any other suggestions are welcome.

PS: This is a very urgent request, need to make the purchase today.

Thanks.

Many have Yoko Geo AT including myself and find it to be good enough for on and off road duty.

As i mentioned over PM, if its moderate OTR ing stick to Geo ATS. They are really good all-rounders. If you want more extreme then go Maxxis. BF's are best for rocks, on road and in mud, i am not a very big fan of them.
