Mahindra now offers a hardtop as well. Customers willing to add this hard top will have to shell out an extra INR 1.5 lakh over the INR 9.6 lakh that the Daybreak Edition kit costs. The cost is eyewatering to say the least.
The Jeep looks awesome though.

How easy is it to install the MLD (Mechanical Locking Differential) in the previous generation (2011 model) Mahindra Thar? Will it be easier and cheaper to install it from Mahindra ASC or buy it from an Eaton distributor?

If I were to do a rear differential swap with a new Thar CRDe to get the diff locker, how would it work out and what all needs to be changed?

Rear axle for 2011 model and current model Thar is the same. It will be cheaper to buy from Eaton distributor. In Bangalore, Ironman dealer is the same dealer for Eaton. He will install it for you. Ping me for his contact details.

Hi Mods,

Not sure if this is the right thread.
I wanted to buy a thar to get feel of it. Later I could resell when the excitement levels come down. I'm not an off-roader or a car enthusiast but with team bhp portal and immense knowledge shared here keep trying to learn.

I tried olx etc and found 1995 model thar with 4x4 available in range of 2 to 2 . 5 lakhs. One of them even has maxi tire and says full rework done on vehicle. Is it worth to pay such a price for these vehicles. There is no straight way to find how much these vehicles have run.

I'm from Bangalore and intend to get some guidance from you.

Appreciate guidance.

Dear Sanjeev,
Thar wasn't introduced till late 2010-2011.
The one you have found in OLX must be a 540 made to look like a Thar.
If you do not have access to a reliable Jeep mechanic or a friend who has good experience with older Jeeps, there is a good chance of ending up with a lemon.
If you are ready to stretch your budget, please look for a well maintained 2012+ Thar.
You can check with Manas if he still has his Thar. It was available for sale.

To be honest, nothing better than buying a vehicle/Jeep from a Bhpian.
Cheers,
Deepak

Thanks a lot Deepak. I have sent message to manasm.
This jeep area is totally new to me so seeking help.

Are these older Mahindra jeeps no good? even if these are 4x4?

The older Mahindra Jeeps are far more simple compared to the Thar and hence, far more easy to repair.
But it is after all a 20+ year old vehicle which would have generally been through heavy use. Hence, would need loads of TLC.

Older ones are absolutely crude. Drive both back to back and you will know what I mean. Either way 2.25 is way too much to pay for 1995 model. If you want an older jeep, please stick to post 2002 ex army mm550s which can be had for the about the same price. pre 2000 models go for 2 and below.

Thanks for the advice. It helps.
Saw a good looking jeep online. Sharing pics for reference. Need to go and check its performance. Its 1995 model. The seller is quoting 2.5 lakhs. Has maxi tires and redid seats also, along with other overhaul work when they had bought it. As per him 4x4 is in working condition. Any further guidance or advise would be helpful.
