Very good looking Bolero you have got there ! if you can fabricate slightly broader wheel arches to accomodate the wider tyres it would look really good

Very tastefully modified Bolero, such egs. invoke interest in not so good looking vehicle otherwise!
If you hadn't screwed the tyre size!

@ Prabhuav : Spot on, the Hellas cost < 6000 Rs. The light force ones cost more than twice this!

@ greenhorn : Thanks for the idea mate, will definitely try that! Have to find someone in Chennai skilled enough to do that though!

@krish3 : I shall post some interior pics tomorrow : It's better not seen though!

That understeer experience was more due to my inexperience with the Bolero's handling. If you attack corners with the inner line, the turn-in is much better; if you do it well enough you can even get the back steer a little. It love it now!

Favourite corners so far : Entry into Tnagar from Valluvarkottam junction & the second right after Kodambakkam bridge leading to the new bridge ( this one has smallish speed breakers before the S bend and a 90 deg Left turn, great fun with the back sliding out!)

THE best looking Bolero I have ever seen!

Also, the minor mods you have done highlight how Mahindra messed up a good looking design!!

+1 to that, Cant stop drooling over how good this bolero looks, thats why, I'm bouncing between this thread and your intro thread and commenting on both!

Could you elaborate on the engine mods you have planned?Or am I jumping the gun in my eagerness?
Also- I thought your Bolero was a 2WD, Is it?

I did put in some thought on a 4X4 Bolero before deciding on the 2WD, some of the reasons

1. BS3 4X4 isn't available, registering BS2 in Chennai city is not possible.

2. The 4X4 capability of Bolero is a little suspect according to friends who have used them. Many Bolero owners feel the 2WD is capable in most conditions barring extreme off roading. When it comes to real off-roading SWB Jeeps would be the choice.

3. You lose the IFS with the 4X4, the ride on the 2WD is pretty impressive.

I felt these were convincing to go for the 2WD.

A neat job done very tatefuly, congrats mate. Geolanders is a good choice. For a bit more scary horn get yourself a Hella Red Grill ( particularly for highways)

Seen the Bolero almost gliding over the rocky terrains in Himalaya and some other Mahindra meets at places where Scorpios struggle. It shows the capability of the Jeep. Dont know why you say that 4wd is not good enough
