Foby: The title is little misleading, how are yoyu going to convert a jeep to sports model? Sports model is a slang used for street cars (correct me if i am wrong), BTW could you share the list of proposed mods besides tinkering and alloys. Since you have mentioned the engine has 98% life i am sure you are not planning to replace that, so how sports? Your inspiration has a supra twin turbo engine on it.

i was just referring to the looks , Buddy.

We just started it from the scratch.

Just thought of deviating from the conventional , military stuffed jeeps.

Thats a great thought, the jeep has only a militry image, be really carefull with the color and other bling stuff as there are not many(read any) jeeps in kerala with such a scheme of mods. this might be the first in the state probably the first in the country. Best of luck, this might be helpful bringing out a whole new angle to jeeps character. Keep posted.

I think you can "Pimp" this jeep up easily.

Dark Red (Metallic) or Orange(Solid) exterior color with black art leather seats would look cool.
Whatever paint you use make it Shiny and smooth enough to see your face in it.

Huge chrome wheels plus fat rubber would be required to give it that pimped look.
So you'll probably need some high ground clearance for this setup.

And yes ofcourse you need a good music system (practically you'll not go for it).

Nice paint job, Mods are simple looks really great.
Bigger wheels added exotic looks to the pimp machine

Hi Foby

Thats a good buy man,25k is pretty decent price .Even if you spend a lakh on restoring (max) it would return to life like a bomb and definitely will be a head turner!

Congrats

Hi Foby,

I think you need to move this thread to Jeep (4X4) section since all the jeep lovers are roaming around there

Foby, please read all threads on the 4x4 section carefully. I've bought my classic but am still sorting through tons of info here and elsewhere before proceeding.
First thing you need to decide is if you are going to use this for offroading exclusively / or just as a daily use car. If it is gonna be a bling car, then do what you want, but if you want a good offroader, keep it simple.
Also, i think that this profile of tyre is little small if you consider offroading and will damage the alloys.

Those beemer alloys caught my eye too, at trissur pattalam market. Those are LC size tires, just wont fit inside a jeeps wheel well i guess. but i didn't see any MT tires there. do they have sets of 4 or just few pieces in random?
