Default Best looking Ford Endeavour in the country? Yup

Going through Tejas's OTR report (January 31st, 2010. Bombay - Pune OTR at Sawarsi (new trail)), one 4x4 caught my eye. Actually, it left me drooling.

The Endeavour was always a butch looking SUV. Yet, this Endy is at an entirely different plane; my jaw dropped on seeing its profile!! Reminds me of the LC 80 & 4runner in some ways.

She's running 35 incher tyres, an ARB bumper, a body and suspension lift. Taste, sheer taste. Job well done, Mkraft.

Now, imagine this kind of a setup with a 3.0 Thunder engine

Neat Job indeed! Reminds me of a Nissan Patrol, running on the same set of wheels a long time back. It does actually looks a lot like Patrol.

Any idea what this job would have cost?

Its looks good. However I'll not say its the "best" looking in the country.
I've seen better Endeavour's, no I don't mean the "Bling'ed" out one's.

Kinda pointless to start a new thread.
Snorkel, alloys and stuff apart the vehicle "looks" not that well maintained.

My 2 acres.

That Endy sure had Road presence. No doubt about that. But lugging those massive 35" tyres surely affected it's performance. Same setup in the new endy would be awesome.

This car was still testing and is due for a paint job, etc. Will ask the mkraft guys for more pics after final detailing is done.

A few more pics from the OTR:

Looks rugged and like a real off-roader. Upto C-pillar, it does look like a 4Runner.

Would like to know who's the owner in Ahmedabad. Would like to have him join us for some off-roading that I'm planning to organize.

Anyone know him?

Cheers,
Adi
