Hey, Congrats on your soon-to-be Gypsy!

Depending on your budget, you must eventually go for all of the following mods:

1. Aggressive looking alloys with meaty rubber. I have Michelins in my CJ, and they provide outstanding performance - on the road and off it.

2. Fogs - Look amazing in a Gypsy. Plus purposeful if you go off-roading and blow a headlight fuse. I still cant find the perfect place for fogs on my Classic.

3. Better seats - A Gypsy needs these badly. The ride quality is terrible, and the thin seats only make it worse. Get the seats done up with good padding at a local seat guy.

4. Chrome step-bar - What you use to step into the vehicle. Throw the standard one away, and get a pair custom built.

5. Better steering - Look aftermarket, but get something that does not get too slippery with your sweaty palms while off-roading.

6. Audio set-up - Luckily security is not a concern for you with the hard-top. Go for a sub and amp combo.

7. Extra gas tank - External kind, hinged on to the rear tailgate. Looks great, and provides function when off-roading in the middle of nowhere.

8. RPM Gauge - With that 1.3 MPFi engine, you need it bad.

9. High capacity tow-hook. You can find pro's who will do the install professionally.

10. A Pack of Marlboros - Just kidding

Dude, the list for modding a Gypsy or a Mahindra can just go on and on...its a never-ending process. I have eventually got like 50 mods in my Jeep compared to a regular Classic.

Personalisation is everything.
