3M has a nice underbody rust treatment. that will take care of your chassis and underbody.

or you can get your chassis galvanised, but for that you have to remove the body!

What I was thinking of doing was. strip the whole jeep down. and give it a full antitrust treatment and then put on a nice paint. The vehicle is now 15 years old and might have rust hidden underneath the body or the chassis. Any suggestions? I don't mind spending on it but I need her to last as long as another 20 years or so.

Here is a recent update. I called up the winch dealers to know if it is possible to fit the winch to the jeep. He said yes, but there is a different technique which one has to follow and could be told on phone. So any of you guys in Bangalore happen to be near this place, Please visit the dealer and find out. If it can be fitted, its going to be a boon to all the 4x4 lovers.

Congrats yamaniac on finding such a fine jeep. Like others mentioned, go ahead and convert it to 4 x 4 based on your needs.

BTW, Nice avatar.

Most of us keep away from winches because of price, the availability is not the problem. It is hard to get high quality winch for a reasonable price in India.

That's a nice avatar you got.

Darn, Why? Why does it have to be like this? China sells it for dirt cheap prices. US too does and so does other countries! I guess I better go with the 600 wala winch. At least i can try drawing a bucket out of the well with it!

Hi
Congrats on buying the JEEP. You have certainly launched yourself into the world of jeeping.
COnverting your 2wd to 4wd is a easy enough procedure.It involves the following steps:
1> Removal of 2wd gearbox and front dead axle.
2> Fitment of 4wd gearbox and front differentials.
3> Shortening of rear prop shaft.
4> Fitment of front drive shaft.
5> Minor tinkering required for the lever/s of the 4wd in running board.
6> Fit a freewheeling hub.(helps down vibrations which arise when front shaft engaged).
7> The entire cost of the operation with gearbox overhaul etc if parts sourced locally would be around 40k on the higher side less if you know your way around the parts.
8> And for that cash you will have a rebuilt gearbox,clutch and new bearings all around.
9> The brakes also could be serviced along with the running parts.
10>The vehicle just needs insulation in the form of the black thermofoam which can be stuck to the firewall.This will reduce heat ingress.The gear lever boots must be crack free.
11>The fitment of side ventilators helps in a small way.
Cheers
Jammy

The rear axle will also have to be changed, as the diff is offset to the right for the 4x4 version. Also remember to add the skid plate under the GB cross member. The 4x4 versions have an additional bumpstopper for the front axle RH side, which you may have to add.

Based on lengthy discussions held with Senior JT member UBS I am running a centre diff with no problems so far.
cheers
