@ girish: very nicely done. but it begs for a tyre and wheel(alloys) change. atleast the tyres for now. how about getting some good AT tyres?


PS: highway tyres don't do justice to your jeep

Thumbs up

+1 to what badboyscad has said above: you definitely need a change of tyres.

Regarding the mod job itself : Congrats !!! The MM540 has come out quite good .

Looks like you are running Gypsy rims : how is the steering feel? Hope you have got the wheel alignment done.

@girish, your jeep is fantastic and very handsome. I just wish I could also own something like that.

@Badboyscad: thanks for ur feedback. Yes, tyres need change. Still they can do couple of thousands more, so waiting for that to complete.

girish the job looks pretty well executed and congrats on that. However there has to be some kinda nitpicking done and here is my take.

1 - I think those bumpers could have been done better.
2 - Get better tyres.
3 - The side steps could have been better using aluminum sheets or something on the same lines.

PS : No offence , each has his own taste's and I just put mine in writing here . Once again congrats.

Oh, how on earth I missed this thread! Congrats, Wonderful mod Girish. May I know some more details on your project, as I am planning to embark on a similar one in future.
1. The soft top: Is it custom made? If so, the cost and wherfrom you got it made?
2. Frame for soft top: I can see only one single set of rods supporting the top (apart from the front B- piller). Is it a good fit? I mean while you are in speed, does the soft top move? If possible can you post a pic of only the frame for the top?
3. The front seats seems to be from the MM Classic, is it? How much you got the pair for?
4. Any issues for installing the rear forward-facing seats?

I am really searching for some place in Delhi where I can get the roll cage of similar type made, but no clue till now. If anybody has any pointer kindly pass on.

Whoa!!!!

Great job girish-avare.
1) Was the Jeep already part of your family?
2) If not, how much did you pay to procure it?
3) How much did the mods cost you?
4) Any contacts of the Hassan garage person? How good is he with respect to time commitments and workmanship?
5) Did you get a engine job done?
6) Please take some pics of the engine bay and under-body too...Please??

Thanks
Santosh

hi thks for the input so far.

but as expected, more questions!!

i have these two pictures of the interior.



and



the placements of the meters in both are in different locations. Is this a change from being in two different year models? or is it a customization job?

Another question is that someone earlier mentioned hot air coming in from the engine to the driver area. Is this a common occurance ?

Once again, thx for all the help

Well me and Akeel faced this problem.. See here. Although I have not seen anybody else mentioning this on the forum. This basically happens when there are Holes (Holes that are drilled for the electrical purposes or may have been rusted ) inside the cabin facing the engine area. When your jeep moves forward, all the hot air from the engine tends to move inside the cabin area through these vents. Making it hot and is pretty uncomfortable. You can either put a good thermal foam outside/inside the cabin area to protect you from this..

This was tried out by me, looks like a very unprofessional job.. But it works Here is a pic hope this helps.

Default Re: my MM540 modifications

the hot air from the engine has always been an issue with my jeep, but i guess its annoying as long as you think of it. it definately helped on my last trip to jaipur in the cold of the winters where we'd actually change seating positions to keep our legs warm ..
