Great to see another Jeeper on board! Unique Jeep, I gotta admit. IMHO it would look fantastic without the liberal use of red. Also, you should have retained the stock rear design.

Any chance of adding a 4x4 to her?

Great effort Harpal and a fitting result. The jeep looks out of the world when hoisted and a killer when normal. It looks like a lowrider.
Do you have problems re ride comfort when driving with the suspension fully retracted?
Also can we have interior pics and maybe a video on the process of lifting and retracting the jeep?

The jeep looks good, not a big fan of the colour scheme, I would have gone for one solid colour, maybe a matte black or a matte white paint job. Great work nonetheless.

Amazing effort harpal!!!! Kudos to you and your brother for carrying this out. What you have achieved is phenomenal and even though people may comment on certain aspects of color/finish etc, the jeep looks good. I would love to take it to off-roading and see how it performs over boulders/rocks -- assuming that it has 4x4.

Great effort mate. Will drop by to drive it if ever I am passing by Ludhiana.

PS: Rear is looking a bit bland and the window/glass is TOO big -- just a personal opinion...

Great effort. one of a kind. Some suggestions, may be you can look upon having a different color combination. Add a SUV bumper it will look still great. You can still have a rethink on the rear end.

One word to summarize. Excellent.

Hello Harpal,

That is a unique vehicle. Looks like you put a lot of hard work into it. But it appears that the suspension has not much functionality.

What is the point of the hydraulics? Do they provide any type of utility? Looking as the pictures, the suspension does not look like if has much of compliance (other than the tires). I don't see any springs or dampers whatsoever! Is the ride is very harsh with the vehicle bouncing and jumping over even small bumps on the road? This could be very dangerous at even low speeds.

It could be a nice capable Jeep if you went back to leaf springs or better yet coils.

harpaalgill-dont know how much of use would be there with that kinda suspension anway congrats for the effort taken,but 1 suggestion regarding the color scheme and stickering,should have avoided the maroon [or is it red?] and should have gone for simpler sticker design, this looks too loud.

Brillent idea, would love to have a jeep like this, looks like this jeep can really go any where, as the ground clearnce is adjustable.
hey thanks man. yes it doesn’t have Ac, but there is a technical reason behind this.

I know that this color scheme is not suitable for jeeps but I had a vision in my mind. As far 4wd is concern I am going to start a new project, that will be pure offroader without fancy things . Thanks

Yes I can do something different with the rear end but I don’t want to redo anything on this jeep. I ll do everything with all your suggestions on new project. Thanks

hi.. I use maruti 1000 engine(earlier model of esteem) same five speed gearbox. U ll get this engine in Punjab easily in Rs10,000. or u can use zen engine also. Its not very complicated process u just have some knowledge of engines and u have to make 3 engine and gear mounting to fit this engine in 800. make sure that alignment is correct.

The front /side view is beautiful : the rear bumper could have been more

I have two questions although. Does your present suspension setup allow
any normal suspension movements to soak up the road irregularities? And
how does the vehicle handle on the roads and especially while taking
turns?
yes this present suspension has 3 accumulators(2booth sides 1 rear) to
soak up the road irregularities.. handling is very good very comfortable
on good roads, but u have to careful while taking turns when suspension
is fully lifted. thanks

hi. its not mechanical possible to install 4X4 when the suspension is
hydraulically adjustable between 0-13inch. so drive shaft must increase
and decrease in length which is not possible. see bellow

you want to know the point of hydraulics well let me ask u something what is the point of having 4X4 , Powerful engine instead of stock , N.O.S and other modifications. Its all about being different, being unique, being noticeable. Its just for hobby, its for the satisfaction of mind. There are thousand of 4X4 jeeps in our country but most of then never use 4X4. So its better doing something different than being similar.
I made this jeep bcoz nobody had done this before in India.
As far springs and damper is concern let me tell u that this jeep has 3 accumulator to soak up the road irregularities. So the vehicle is not bouncing and jumping over small bumps.
Why the way donít worry I m going to start new project. Its going to be a pure offroader M&M550.
Best Regards
Harpal Gill

Wow Harpal. Hats of to you. This is indeed a great mod job which does what it was made for, turn heads!
But as with the others, I am not a big fan of the color scheme at the rear.
Looking forward to the pure offroader you are building.
