Default re: Tata Safari 2.2 VTT - Black Beast - Report at 52 Months & 70000 kms

Update at 52 months and 70,000 Kms

Nothing much to report. The beast is running trouble free "All is Well". [touch wood]

Went for two road trips to "Keoladeo National Park" & "Maha kumbh Mela" in March.
Delhi - Allahabad - Delhi drive as awesome. Apart from Firozabad there is no bottleneck.
We did 800 odd kms in 9.5 hrs.

Sharing a few snaps of the same.

My Safari went for routine service today. This is the first time my Safari being services at an FNG. Thanks to GD1418 for giving me contact of Mr Rakesh of Rakesh Motors @ near Atul Khataria Rd,Gurgaon. Advantage Mr Rakesh has a big Spare parts shop and Garage. So no issues for spares. I got most of the parts at a reasonable discounted price.

Hi Vinod,

Just went through the thread again after a log gap. You have maintained details and update very well. Amazing photos as well, sply of hills, valleys and Allahabad kumbh pics. Coolant leak diagnosis was really very educative.

Keep it up.

Any specific reason that you went back to TASC from a FNG?
I am keenly following your thread, have a 2.2 Dicor and have done 64k kms in 2.5 years.

@Ajit : Nothing particular as such as it was a routine service plus I intend to use both alternatively just to keep service record up to date with TML.

Also I wanted to check the health of timing belt too.. For specialised works TASS is better.

Led Bar - Addition

I was looking for upgrading my beast's Head light , was indecisive to HID's or Projectors. Both were costing in the rage of 15 - 20k. Then i came across Aurora Led bars. The lumen was just like camera flash. The calmed range is about 1000 mtrs.
I feel actual range is about 500 mtrs is absolute clear.

Specs :

GE Lexan Lens
Instant On/Off
Operating Temps -40 to 155 deg F – Any Weather!
Dual, Oversized Heat Sink – Dissipates Heat So LEDs Do NOT Burn Out

100% Waterproof – Housing, Connector, EVERYTHING!
2 Year Warranty – If anything happens, It’s ON US!
