Whoa, yet another Mahindra lover!!! I think I know this 540. Is/Was it Red? I had seen this A-W-E-S-O-M-E 540 at a Goan great escape.

Am pretty certain it is possible, but very complicated...especially in a water-leaking vehicle like the Mahindra Jeep. Battery capacity need not be changed, as the power seats will consume juice only for those brief moments when the seat is being adjusted. I think he would have transferred the kit from another car.

Ha, I got this Jeep right. Remember ogling all over it at the Goan Great Escape in 1999.

Rallystar, You really have an awesome Jeep in there. You are really lucky to pick this machine up.

How is the retro-fitting of the Toyota diesel engine? Also, this Jeep has the 4x4 removed because of the engine switch. Am I right? Even in the picture, I cannot see the 4x4 mechanism at the front.
