Default Extreme pimps on a Cj 500 , sports modification on a jeep

fellas , that is a dream come true.

We some friends boughta jeep and we are planning to pimp it now

need some serious help in modifications , please post your thoughts here.

This the one which we bought , the tires have 10 % of the life left , Body have 25 % of the life left , but engine has 95 to 98 % of the life left.

A perfect jeep to start the work

we also found an awsome tinker worker who is a specialist in jeep modification.

Oh Man! its so simple and still looks excellent.

So, Foby gets bitten by the CJ bug!

Wish you a great experience, Foby!

I would suggest you get in touch with "Xtreme power", who is into this big time. I reckon he has an ongoing project, similar to this, but on fast track!

OT:
Shouldn't the title reflect that this is a WIP?

The title is conveying what Foby wants the vehicle to be. I came in here expecting that the work was completed, but the vehicle has just been brought and designs being finalized.

Just my thought!

Exactly

And hence it wont mind bigger wider tyres.

Foby; If you are retaining the stock engine,dont do for too wide tyres IMHO.
Would suggest a Bolero engine

Pramod
I bought it from a private estate near to barathapuzha , Shornur

he is 1987

Sice that jeep was used to smuggle sand from Bharathapuzha , the engine condition was awsome. oil preassue was perfect.

As per my requierment the tyre life was 10 - 5 % left

There was no running board.

Steering was in pathetic condition.

jumping , unscrewed back seats

second gear slip.

Ramie, Bir jee that is his inspiration not the final result, that belongs to nahal another Bhpian.

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.
