I saw a lot of modded Lancers in good taste while i was commuting between Tiruvalla and Kottayam. Since i was riding the bike and was in a hurry to catch my train, i didnt stop to click any pics.

@ Foby - That Jeep needs much bigger tyres to look butch; those flares look silly in the current setup.

The jeep does look under tired.

@ Foby - What is the donor vehicle? And, could you please provide some details about the winch? Make/price/availability etc?

I think that jeep has been executed very well. Would be very interested to know what rolling chasis they used and what fabrication if any was involved etc what is the engine spec. It seems like some old model and some new model parts ahve been used mixed and matched still it looks neat and clean. It also seems apart form the windscreen doors and some plastics that may still be a indian mahindra body

Somehow, those tail lamps dont seem to fit in. They just havent been put on well.
The rest of the execution looks fine to me,atleast.

Looks good, well executed work but as benbsb29 has mentioned the tail light does not seem to fit in.

that silver jeep is cool. well done work and nice detailing! The tail lamps as some of us pointed out could be better in round than sqaurish!! my 2 cents!
The alloys are aura's with Suzuki logo if I am not mistaken!

The new pics now show those wheels to be having an inward baised offset either spacer or better yet something with wider J rims would complete the look. This seems to be a local body fabircation with genuine american jeep parts like hinges, door handles, quarter glass/door windows, windscreen hinges, plastic fenders, lights, even the windscreen glass seems to be taken from the older Indian jeeps with good execution. I suspect the entire sheet metal is localy fabricated. Ah yes the dash seems to be from a balero/new 540mm a very good job now if they can make me the foor door version with hardtop, A/C, Power steering and the scorpio Mhawk engine and auto tranny I am game and will place an order NOW PS- Must be able to register it leagly

I just checked pics of American Jeep pics, this is a complete fabrication none of the metal or fenders on this jeep are imported I bet the those plastic looking fenders are metal, even the front/face with headlight and indicator is not identical to the orignal - check how the it finishes into the bumper and my links below, the side indicator on the fender should be flushed in they are out on this car. The windscreen should be seemless and bonded on this car you can see the indian windscreen frame!

Even the hinges are made locally . It is undoubtedly the best fab I have seen and would proudly ownup to the same, unfortunately all that metal will add too much weight not to mention the whole thing turning out to be a rust bucket :(
