Saw your jeep on the way to waddakanchery last week. Looks good, need to do something about the front grill, the lights looks disproportionate.

Hi Foby! Firstly congratulations and wish you and your wife a happy married life ahead!
Secondly, the jeep looks swell! What rims are those? They look really menacing! Will you be modifying the tyre rod and suspension so that they can tilt as well?

Wow man, thats an awesome change considering what it was earlier, congratulations.

Few questions:
1. How much money was spent by you on all the changes put together, which was the major costing part?
2. How is the condition of the engine, did you do any tuning of it etc.
3. Also give some info on FE and other stuff, what are you using the vehicle for now.

Actually , what we planned was to make a look alike for the old willys , so we altered the old headlamp , the light which is fitted now is of JCB 's , but its fitted on a hanging clamp , when the vehicle shivers it loose the strength , we are in look for an alternative now.


About the indicator lamps , will be fixing it soon.
Any way thank you for the suggestion.

It priced around 1.60 INR , The costliest part was the alloys and tires.

The engine condition is excellent now , showing correct temperature and oil pressure , after changing the tires we experienced a major drop in mileage though.

Currently we are using it only as a show piece , I tried off roading in a small hilly area , since the jeep does not have a 4X4 it was not a success though. But the performance was good enough as a Jeep.


I am sorry I am not a Jeep guru , what do you meant by FE ?
