Hey dude! Forgive me..you seem to have managed to build a dabwali without going all the way up north! IMO the unrestored version was way better!

To be brutally truthful, it just might be one of the worst jeep do-ups I've seen. I'd call it a do-down. Sorry man. The tiny lights look awful, they just won't suit a high-bonnet jeep. On high bonnet jeeps, bigger lights look better, even bigger than stock.

Since it's a long chassis, it just doesn't look as good naked as the short ones. Hide the length with a full roll bar setup. Like the wrangler, not the Classic. Also, as you're not going to be offroading, reduce the ride height a bit. Long and low, if you know what I mean. And seeing as you're pimping this ride, what are those high profile tyres doing there? DUB all the way, DUB! If that's too much, at least 17 inchers with low profile rubber!

Default Extreme pimp

Just to add to what vivekgk has said, calling it extreme pimps based on what i could see till now is going a little overboard. Go for the stock headlamps immediately if not anything else!

I know your jeep is not complete yet, please update pics to shut our mouths quickly
