Absolutely V12.The hatch opens up completely and one can standup and take photographs.The roof is re-enforced so you can even cilmp out through the hatch close it and sit on the roof.

Very aspirational jeep! Probably amongst the more purposeful looking jeeps on the forum.

Nice looking jeep! You dont have any issue's with this green color in BLR? Shackle lift you had bad ride? I thought the handling will be bad and ride better?

Thanks Arka and once again thankyou for all the help....

Jaggu wih longer shackles I could feel every pothole on the road but with the regular shackles its a world of a difference.I have a power steering so control wasnt an issue even on the long shackles.

very well restored and built jeep. tastefully done with heart and passion.

i would like to suggest to either paint the snorkel or replace it.

since you already have the indicators on the fenders, put foglamps under the headlights by removing the orange indicators.

One of the most purposefully made Jeeps ever. Really tastefully done and the green paintjob is absolutely fantastic. Good work with the mechanicals too. Appreciate the effort. Congrats !!

After changing to 15" there has been absolutely no issues with the tyre touching any part of the jeep on the worst of uneven terrain where the vehicle is at a highly dis-proportionate stance.

I have a thermostat and with the AC and power steering the temperature is a standard 80degreesin the most congested of jams and while running without AC its 70 degrees in the same scenario.

While the vehicle is moving at high or low speed the temperatures do not change at all.

Regards,

Vijay
